We have a very large number of customers who regularly trade on eBay then use the Parcel Monkey quote engine to ship their eBay items. We can offer very low delivery prices whether you need to send something to arrive the Next Day or even if you have a buyer who lives on the other side of the world.
Just submit the dimensions of your parcel and we will show you our incredibly cheap eBay delivery prices.
If you have bought an item from the auction site eBay then you may be looking for an eBay courier service to collect the item and deliver it to your customer. If this is the case then we feel it would be difficult to find any courier company that offers prices as cheap as Parcel Monkey.
What's more, it's incredibly quick to either arrange a courier collection from the vendor's address or your own. In fact, the process should just take around 3 minutes to book - at the most.
Parcel Monkey can assist with large and heavy goods as we work with a range of UK domestic carriers who can cater for all kinds of items being sold on eBay. We work with carriers such as DX Freight, Tuffnells and Parcelforce Large for those larger items that are over 30kg whilst we offer a broad range of other carriers for smaller items like DPD, UK Mail, DX Next Day and more.
Customers using Parcel Monkey ship a wide variety of items every day, including:
Be sure to check our prohibited items list when you book, some items we can courier for you but without protection cover available.
It's very simple to use Parcel Monkey for shipping eBay items.
All you need to do is get a quick quote from our quote engine based on the dimensions of the item you wish to send. When you make that sale on eBay, simply follow our booking process through to place the order and use our courier services to have the item collected from a home or work address, or if you prefer to print the shipping label off our website and drop off at your local Post Office or DPD Pickup shop. With eBay, its best practice to offer the tracking details to the recipient, so just let them know the PM order number so they too can watch the item until delivery!
Many eBay sellers now actively state that the auction item will be dispatched via our service rather than generic eBay couriers because from their previous successful sales we have faultlessly shipped their items to the auction winners.
Of course, things do very occasionally go wrong and those who have had issues are often more vocal than the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of customers that have had no problems. Our Trustpilot ratings speak for themselves and are often linked back to successful eBay sellers who have saved time and money by using our simple quote engine and website.
We haven't ring-fenced or individually arranged a courier company only to collect items from customers who are sending items purchased/sold on eBay. That's mainly because Parcel Monkey customers use our courier services for a vast number of reasons. Our cheap parcel delivery services are attractive and repeatedly used by eBay shippers due to a wide range of services we have for; parcels big or small, services we have for those who need a collection or to Drop Off, as well as those who need to send their eBay items in the UK or internationally.
Keeping the cost of parcel delivery down helps eBay sellers make more money, whilst our reliable courier partners who offer full tracking and protection cover provides sellers and buyers with that peace of mind.
Parcel Monkey originally only offered parcel collection services where you would book online via our site and a courier would come to collect from your home or work address. If you have an eBay item that needs to be collected this type of service remains very popular, especially if it is something large or heavy.
In more recent times, we have now been able to offer a broad range of services that include Drop Off services. The courier will still come to collect the eBay item but simply from a local Post Office or DPD Pickup shop. There are a variety of benefits for dropping off parcels including saving on the cost and the flexibility of dropping it off at a time convenient to you.
More and more of us are buying and selling on eBay, so the ability to pop down the local shop or Post Office, and to then be able to save money on the parcel delivery services by pre-booking with us, has not gone unnoticed amongst our customer base.
We have a number of couriers that are geared up for heavy items. By using the 'Send a Parcel' link at the top of this page you can submit the weight of your eBay item and this filter down the range of couriers that can handle your parcel. If shipping a heavy eBay item in the UK you will see the likes of DX Freight or Parcelforce Large 24 & 48 services, whilst if your buyer lives overseas the likes of DHL Express and Parcel Monkey Air Express will have you covered.
Do make sure you read the list of 'prohibited items' mentioned during the booking process and understand the difference between different types of items being prohibited and those which our partners can ship for you, but on a non-compensation basis.
If you have a very small parcel to send you can choose from a whole host of courier services that we offer in the UK and for shipping to international eBay buyers. Of course the volume of the parcel is less of a consideration as very light items generally you would be best served by taking them to the Post Office and sending them by perhaps their Large Letter service, but with small items that may weight over 2kg you would be well-served by using the 'Send a Parcel' link at the top of this page and compare prices from the likes of DPD, UK Mail, Parcelforce and DX
We have worked hard to bring you some of the best international courier services around from Express delivery with the likes of DHL to economy road services that deliver for a fraction of the price. It doesn't matter if you are shipping eBay items to Dublin or Dubai, we offer full tracking and some of the lowest courier rates around, so international eBayers will be delighted with our product line up.
Seemingly many eBay transactions are UK residents purchasing items from abroad. However, if you have sold something to a foreign destination then we also list a good range of international couriers that can help you send your package abroad. We have purposely listed a broad spectrum of international couriers that may offer economy services that may take a few additional days to premium couriers such as DHL which may cost more but are likely to get your parcel to its destination sooner.
Selling online opens up the possibility of being able to ship to customers overseas with eBay being no different. For example in Spain, one of the preferred eCommerce stores for buyers is eBay and they expect delivery in 3-4 days. With our quick transit times and low prices, it could be well worth your while opening up the option for overseas buyers to purchase from you. The average Spaniard is spending over $650 a year online, so tap into this growing market if you are an eBay seller!
No problem, we can help you get your eBay purchase collected from the seller if they have left this part to you. Just get the parcel weight, dimensions and the shippers address, run the details through our quote engine and make the booking. All then you need to do is send them the shipping labels over via email and get them to attach them to the box and let them know either when it is to be collected or where to drop the parcel off. You could even choose Parcelforce or DX collected services and the driver will bring the shipping label to the collection point.
Often, local eBay listings are very popular where you arrange to pick the goods up yourself. If you have done this and the item is large, consider our Parcel Monkey Local service rather than hiring a van for example as you could well be better off doing this. This Same Day service also works out well for those who need the goods to be delivered as quickly as possible.
