Can I request a free carrier pickup for USPS or UPS?
Yes. After you have printed your label, simply request a pickup from USPS in order to save gas and a trip to the Post Office. USPS free carrier pickup can only be used if you are shipping at least one Priority Mail or Express Mail package domestic and international. You and your buyer can then track the package right in My eBay, since USPS labels have Delivery Confirmation. For UPS shipments, once you have printed your label, you can drop off your packages at any one of nearly 4,400 locations of The UPS Store. You may also hand your package to a UPS driver at no additional charge. Or, for an additional fee, arrange for a pickup through http://www.ups.com/ or 1.800.PICK.UPS. You and your buyer can then track the package right in My eBay, since UPS provides tracking from initial scan through delivery.
