eBay Australia’s Sophie Onikul says, “We know the last couple of months have been tough on Aussies financially with an estimated 46 per cent of household incomes affected.⁵ We’re excited to extend our previous Plus Weekend to a full month of savings with eBay Plus Month.

“People are shopping differently right now, prioritising purchases of the things they really need from tech to everyday essentials. We’ve also seen less time spent browsing the site with shoppers more decisive and planned in their purchases. It's important that we deliver our 11-million unique monthly visitors the best discounts on the items we know are in demand.

“We’ve also seen a conscious effort from eBay shoppers to support homegrown businesses during this time. Buyers can shop with confidence as eBay Plus consists of top rated and trusted Australian sellers. eBay Plus Month is the perfect opportunity to snag a deal and support local SMBs.”

Express delivery

eBay will also roll out free express delivery on millions of eBay Plus items for eBay Plus members in metro areas⁶. Metro-based eBay Plus members will have orders automatically upgraded to express delivery on millions of eBay Plus listings.⁷

“Our aim is to get items into buyers’ hands as quickly as possible so they can enjoy them. Recent research shows reliable delivery is more important than ever right now with it second only to free delivery”⁸, adds Onikul.

eBay Plus is a shopping membership that unlocks delivery benefits and huge savings. For just $49 for 12 months, eBay Plus members benefit from free express delivery, free returns and access to exclusive deals. Plus members who shop Coles on eBay get 5 per cent off and free delivery on orders over $49.⁹ recently partnered with Afterpay, Australia’s number one Buy Now Pay Later platform, to give Aussie shoppers greater payment flexibility when purchasing online and a way to responsibly manage their personal finances.
