eBay is said to launch a paid shipping membership service in Germany. The program, called eBay Plus, promises free delivery within two days on millions of items, as well as free returns within 30 days of a purchase. eBay Plus will launch in late September in Germany, but will be available to all buyers on eBay Germany by October.
eBay Germany released a press release last week, thereby also acknowledging the membership will cost 19.90 euros per year. With the introduction of eBay Plus, the American company says it further increases its offering in terms of shipping in Germany. “Simultaneously, with the program we react to the fact that simple return possibilities are a crucial factor for German buyers who shop online.”
