DSW partners with eBay for in-store pickup

DSW (NYSE:DSW) announced a partnership with eBay to expand its omnichannel fulfillment capabilities. This new customer-friendly solution will allow shoppers to purchase DSW items online and pick up the order at any location of their choice—ultimately avoiding shipping charges and having the luxury of purchasing from a larger pool of online merchandise.

The footwear and accessory retailer will launch the ship-to store program, furthering its successful partnership with eBay Enterprise ship-from store and dropship manager.

"With our implementation of eBay Enterprise ship-from store, DSW offers the online customer access to its extensive assortment regardless of where one shops by providing visibility into inventory held by DSW and dsw.com, and enabling stores to fulfill online orders," added Roger Rawlins, executive VP, ominichannel at DSW.

Earlier this year eBay Enterprise launched its ship-from-store SaaS, a solution to the omnichannel experience. The program turns physical retail locations into virtual distribution centers.

Furthering its goal of any shoe, anywhere, any time, DSW began a partnership more than a year ago with eBay.

"Our experience with eBay Enterprise ship-from store and dropship solutions, as well as its implementation and support resources, has been extremely positive. Based on the success of those programs, we are confident our In-Store Pickup and Ship-to Store initiatives will be equally successful," Rawlins stated.
