Delivery Methods Setup

If you are listing a product under Buy Now or Auction selling formats, you need to have Delivery Methods setup. There are three type of Delivery Methods:

  1. Buyer to Pickup
  2. Doorstep Delivery by Seller
  3. Courier Services (eg. RedBox, Maldives Post)

1. Buyer to Pickup

If you want to enable Buyer to Pickup for your products, go to Delivery Methods > Rates Setup and check Buyer to Pickup

2. Doorstep Delivery by Seller

To enable this method, you need to setup zones that you provide service for. For example, if you are based in Male', you may provide Doorstep delivery to Male', HulhuMale' and Hulhule. In this case, these three islands will be grouped under one Zone. You may charge small fee for delivering to Villingili. Then, Villingili will be under a different Zone.

Creating a Delivery Zone

Click Delivery Methods under My Selling Activities menu in My iBay.  Click Add New Zone and enter Zone Name and Description.

Click Click to Edit/View to add island for that location. Add the required islands to the Zone and click Done when finished. You can create upto four Delivery Zones to meet your requirement. Generally, a Delivery Zone is a group of islands to which you have a Delivery Method at the same price. One island cannot be in more than one Delivery Zone.  Please refer to Delivery Zones and Available Islands for the list of Delivery Methods and available Islands.

Once Zones are setup, you can go to Rates Setup tab to setup rates. In the screenshot below, the seller has setup two Zones: Male' City and Nationwide. Under each of this Zone, you can see Doorstep Delivery by Seller.

You can check Enabled box to enable it and setup rates.
