EBay drop-off services are offered at FedEx, eBay Valet and in the eBay drop-off directory on Drop-Off-Stores.com. These services act as consignment sellers and generally pay 60 to 80 percent of the sale price to the original owners if items sell.
Drop-off sellers often have minimum requirements and ask individuals to ship or drop off items. Although the services allow sellers to avoid the hassle of listing and pricing items, there have been criticisms of the service based on poor selling records, underpricing items and payment delays.
FedEx offers 70 percent payment on eBay sales and explains that electronics, antiques, sporting goods, small appliances and designer bags sell best. EBay Valet offers up to 80 percent payment on sales but does not accept items worth less than $40, heavier than 25 pounds or breakable items. Drop-Off-Stores.com offers a directory of physical drop-off locations in every state and does not require shipping.
