ebay will share information on shipping from all major online retailers including Amazon, with the goal of making it easier for consumers to shop without being caught up in complex shipping disputes.
Amazon’s agreement with eBay, the world’s largest e-commerce marketplace, means that any retailer who is not part of Amazon’s e-Commerce platform will be able to send shipping information to eBay through the platform’s own online store.
Amazon and eBay have been working together for months to help consumers shop online, but the agreement will allow e-tailers to share information about their shipping rates, as well as ship times, shipping dates and more.
The agreement is the latest in a growing trend of online retailers working together to help their customers shop for products without being tied to a third party.
EBay has partnered with many major retailers to help shoppers shop online including Target, Home Depot, Costco and Target.
“We are committed to helping consumers and businesses find products that are great value and affordable, and we look forward to sharing this information with them,” said Chris McNeil, vice president of business development at Amazon.
More on the Amazon deal: Amazon says it’s willing to share shipping information with eBay to ease shipping disputes, says eBay dealThe deal follows a string of other deals Amazon has struck with major retailers in recent months.
In April, Amazon announced a $1 billion deal to buy Whole Foods for $13.5 billion.
And earlier this month, Amazon signed a deal to sell its Prime membership service to Whole Foods.
According to a report from Bloomberg, Amazon is now working with major companies including Staples, Staples’ parent company, and Amazon itself to share product information and other information with customers.
McNeil said in an interview with Bloomberg that Amazon’s goal with the deal is to make it easier to shop online without being “caught up in complicated shipping disputes.”
McNeill declined to provide further details on the new agreement, saying he did not want to get ahead of future deals.
While Amazon does not make any revenue from its e-store sales, it does earn a share of sales through its AmazonFresh program, which is a free online service that lets Amazon customers buy items from other Amazon sellers.
As part of the agreement, Amazon will share shipping costs for any products shipped to its customers.
Shipping costs will be shared with eBay for its own online marketplace, and the agreement allows e-retailers to provide shipping estimates for any product sold through AmazonFresh.
