eBay sellers have asked (for years) "Why can't I list FedEx Ground as the shipping method I will use on my eBay items?"

There are reasons, but we won't go into them now.

Because now... you can simply make FedEx Ground (and other FedEx services) available as the shipping options on your items if you ship with flat rate shipping costs.

FedEx shipping services are not available if you use the eBay shipping calculator. Now the calculator is used by a very small % of ebay sales (less than %1, from what we can see). If you require a shipping calculator, the old advice still holds: Use the UPS Ground shipping calculator, and then ship the item using FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery.

Here is what it looks like in the "Sell Your Item" (aka "SYI") screen:

So now you can put FedEx up front, as the shipping service in your eBay listings.

Here is the eBay page on the subject: http://ebay.promotionexpert.com/shippingservices/

Happy selling!
