Selling Get It Fast items

Selling with Get It Fast gives buyers added confidence that an item will arrive quickly. It's a great way to increase your sales of seasonal and gift items. Buyers can search specifically for Get It Fast items.

Get It Fast requirements

By listing a Get It Fast item, you commit to do the following:

Offer at least 1 domestic express shipping service. When you list your item, add an overnight service (such as Canada Priority Courier or Canada Post Expedited Parcel) to the list of domestic shipping services that you offer. You can still offer other shipping services, including other overnight services.
Ship the item within one business day of receiving cleared payment. When you list your item, select either same business day or 1 business day from the Handling time drop-down menu.
Offer buyers a quick and safe payment method, such as PayPal. If you do offer PayPal, you may also want to use the Require immediate payment option. This will encourage the buyer to complete the payment right away so you can ship the item sooner.

Important: By selecting a handling time of same business day or 1 business day, you are committing to ship the item within either on the same business day or within 1 business day after receiving a cleared payment, even if the buyer doesn't select an overnight shipping service. You should take this commitment seriously to avoid receiving negative Feedback from buyers.

Tip: By selling with Get It Fast, you may be eligible for an automatic 5-star shipping time detailed seller rating. Learn more about the requirements for receiving an automatic 5-star detailed seller rating.

Estimated delivery date

Get It Fast listings display an estimated delivery date to let buyers know how soon they can receive the item if they pay right away and select the fastest shipping service. The estimated delivery date is calculated by taking the current date, adding your handling time (same business day or 1 business day), and then adding the delivery time of the fastest shipping service you offer (for example, Canada Priority Courier or Canada Post Priority Next A.M.). Estimated delivery date is also shown for other shipping services that you offer.


Here is an example of how Get It Fast works. (This example assumes that December 20 through 23 are business days.)

On December 20, you list an item with a Buy It Now price and select the Get It Fast option. You specify that your domestic handling time is 1 business day, and you offer Canada Post Priority Next A.M. as one of your shipping services. You also offer PayPal as a payment method.

On December 21, a buyer is looking for a last-minute Christmas gift and sees your listing. The buyer purchases the item using Buy It Now and pays right away with PayPal. The buyer selects Canada Post Priority Next A.M. as the shipping service.

On December 22, after confirming you've received the cleared payment, you ship the item using Canada Post Priority Next A.M..

On December 23, the buyer receives the item—in time for Christmas—and leaves positive Feedback for you.


  • "Cleared payment" means that the funds from the buyer's payment have been deposited into your PayPal account.

  • "Business days" are weekdays—Monday through Friday. Saturdays, Sundays, and major holidays are not considered business days.

  • The Get It Fast feature applies only as long as your item has a Buy It Now price. On auction-style listings with a Buy It Now price, the Buy It Now price disappears after an opening bid is placed.Specifying your shipping costs and locations
