Pitney Bowes Mailstream Solutions Showcased at eBay Live! June 14-16 2007
BOSTON, June 06, 2007 - Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), the mailstream technology firm, will showcase mailstream solutions for thousands of eBay Live! attendees, June 14-16, 2007, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Pitney Bowes is a Premier Sponsor and exhibitor at eBay Live! Pitney Bowes powers eBay's shipping label printing service, allowing consumers to efficiently print U.S. Postal Service postage labels right from their computers on eBay or PayPal sites. By bringing mailstream technology to the small business market, Pitney Bowes has created a suite of postage solutions and marketing services to help eBay businesses maximize their buying and selling power while saving time and money.
“As an eBay Certified Solutions Provider, Pitney Bowes will be demonstrating mailstream solutions that meet the specific needs of eBay sellers and buyers,” said Murray Martin, President and CEO of Pitney Bowes. “Our USPS label system transforms the online buying and shipping process by bringing the post office to the desktop. Additional solutions for eBay buyers and sellers will improve their ability to market, sell and ship their merchandise.”
eBay, PayPal and Pitney Bowes have improved the breakthrough USPS label purchase/print system with the new PayPal MultiOrder Shipping Tool. eBay sellers may purchase and print out multiple labels in one session rather than inputting and printing each label one at a time. MultiOrder Shipping Tool helps sellers organize shipments by type, day shipped or by customer.
Another enhancement to help eBay sellers personalize their communications is the Pitney Bowes Stamp Expressions™ Postage Printer. The small, portable printer allows eBay sellers to create postage with customized images for letters or packages right from their desk top. By using the printer with a PC and Internet connection, eBay sellers can purchase postage, images and supplies online, 24 hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. Black-and-white images are available through an extensive image library or users can create their own postage label by using a company logo, promotional message or a favorite photo.
Separate from the official eBay and PayPal solutions, Pitney Bowes also offers custom postage where eBay sellers can create their own branded stamps ordered online or in bulk. An individual’s photo, logo or product name can be printed on each package customizing the postage label on an eBay shipment.
Pitney Bowes is also offering its ClearPath™ cross-border service to eBay solution providers and large eBay sellers. ClearPath is a modular suite of Web services that allow U.S. sellers to transact seamlessly with their Canadian customers. ClearPath can be integrated into the transaction management services used by eBay sellers, or directly into the checkouts of large eBay sellers that operate their own storefronts. ClearPath also includes cross-border logistics and customs management services with comprehensive cross-border tracking and proof-of-delivery capabilities.
Marketing services from Pitney Bowes levels the marketing playing field for small businesses by providing easy access to all the elements needed to create effective, high-quality direct mail campaigns on a 24/7 basis. Located at www.pbmarketingservices.com, the site allows visitors to create custom direct marketing pieces using pre-designed templates and an extensive creative library that offers nearly one million images. Formats include postcards, letters and more. Once the piece is designed, business-to-business or business-to-consumer mailing lists can be applied, using a range of data options including demographic and geographic information and list size. Pitney Bowes provides a turnkey process where users can also upload their own images and mailing lists, and select fulfillment options.
