“Ukrposhta” agreed with global marketplaces to eliminate commissions for sellers from Ukraine
The first to join the initiative were Etsy, eBay, Joom, then joined Wish and Shopify. In addition, each of them provided their own bonuses for Ukrainians.
Wish returned a monthly commission for February for all sellers from Ukraine and canceled all commissions for Ukrainian merchants for six months.
Shopify will allocate funds for humanitarian aid through its partner Flexport.
Joom prior to the billing period has made payment to all merchants and assured that no fines or pessimizations will be applied to Ukrainian stores. Also marketplace temporarily reduced the commission for sellers from 15 to 0%.
Etsy has “zeroed out” sellers’ accounts for February and instructs to temporarily “let stores go”.
eBay has implemented a policy in which sellers will not receive negative feedback from buyers until March 20. In addition, Global eBay has launched a fundraiser to support Ukraine, under which the marketplace will double each donation to $10,000, which its employees will do. eBay has also renewed the accelerator for Ukrainians and is ready to support medium-sized businesses with an assortment of 100 or more items (3 months with no fees) and small businesses (200 free listings).
“So, resume your work abroad. It’s more important now than ever. Especially since we have resumed shipping abroad and have even had two charter flights to the U.S.,” the post stresses.
