How to Use eBay's New AI and DoorDash Package Pickup to Boost Your Online Selling Business

If you are an online seller, you know how important it is to create attractive and accurate descriptions for your products, and to ship them quickly and efficiently to your customers. But you also know how time-consuming and tedious these tasks can be, especially if you have a large inventory or a busy schedule.

That's why you should consider using two new services that can help you streamline your online selling process: eBay's new AI tool for generating product descriptions, and DoorDash package pickup service for delivering your packages to the nearest carrier.

eBay's New AI Tool for Generating Product Descriptions

eBay has recently launched a new feature that uses generative AI (artificial intelligence) to create product descriptions based on content already available across the web¹. This means that you don't have to write your own descriptions from scratch, or copy and paste from other sources. You can simply use the AI tool to generate a unique and relevant description for your product, with just a few clicks.

How does it work? Here are the steps:

- Go to the eBay app and start listing your product as usual.
- When you reach the description section, you will see an icon that looks like a light bulb. Tap on it to activate the AI tool.
- The AI tool will scan the web for similar products and generate a description for your product based on the information it finds. You can edit the description as you wish, or accept it as it is.
- Once you are satisfied with the description, tap on "Done" and continue with the rest of the listing process.

The AI tool can help you save time and effort on writing product descriptions, as well as improve the quality and accuracy of your listings. It can also help you optimize your listings for search engines and attract more buyers.

DoorDash Package Pickup Service for Delivering Your Packages

DoorDash is a popular food delivery service that connects customers with local restaurants. But did you know that DoorDash also offers a package pickup service that allows you to request a Dasher (a DoorDash delivery person) to pick up your packages from wherever you are and drop them off at a local UPS, FedEx, or Post Office (USPS)²?

This means that you don't have to drive to the carrier location yourself, or wait in line to drop off your packages. You can simply use the DoorDash app to request a package pickup, and let a Dasher handle the rest.

How does it work? Here are the steps:

- Go to the DoorDash app and set your pickup address.
- Go to the carrier store page and provide details about your packages, such as whether they require a QR code or a shipping label, and how they are packed.
- Prepare your packages for ASAP or scheduled pickup. If they require a QR code, send it to your Dasher via in-app chat.
- Track your packages from pickup to drop-off. You will receive a photo of the receipt when the Dasher completes the drop-off.

The package pickup service costs $5 flat fee for up to 5 packages, or $3 if you have a DashPass subscription. You can use it for any prepaid, fully sealed, lightweight packages that fit in a standard car trunk.

The package pickup service can help you save time and hassle on delivering your packages, as well as reduce your carbon footprint by using existing delivery routes. It can also help you provide faster and more reliable shipping service to your customers.

By using eBay's new AI tool and DoorDash package pickup service, you can enhance your online selling experience and grow your business. Try them out today and see how they can make a difference for you.
