Auctiva will give away a fully loaded iPad 2 with Wi-Fi and 3G capability as part of a monthlong promotion for its new Integrated Shipping Labels feature.
From Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, U.S.-based eBay sellers who print a shipping label on Auctiva.com will be instantly entered in a random drawing to take place Nov. 10. (See the official giveaway page for rules and eligibility requirements).
The giveaway is meant to encourage Auctiva users to try Integrated Shipping Labels. The new Auctiva.com feature lets eBay sellers buy and print USPS shipping labels—even First Class International—right from their Auctiva accounts, with no need to subscribe to a shipping service.
"If you haven't already tried our new Integrating Shipping Labels, now is a great time to try out this convenient and time saving feature," says Rebecca Miller, Auctiva's product analyst and an eBay Top-rated Seller. "It's easy to use, and we've even added the ability to purchase shipping insurance right when you make a label."
Since introducing Integrated Shipping Labels about a month ago, Auctiva has seen rapid adoption of the feature. Still, there are plenty of Auctiva users out there who either haven't heard about the shipping label capability or haven't gotten around to trying it. Company executives hope the chance of winning an Apple iPad 2 with 64GB of memory and WiFi+3G will be a good reason for people to take the feature for a spin.
"With the holiday season nearly upon us, what better time to give away such an awesome prize and, at the same time, help users with their shipping needs," Miller adds. "Someone is going to be very happy this November!"
Anyone with an Auctiva account can use Integrated Shipping Labels, including customers on the Free Tools plan and those who are in their 30-day free trial.
