CEO Ihor Smilyanskyi has announced that Ukrposhta is becoming the first post office in the world to open its own store on the eBay marketplace on his Telegram.
Currently, there are only two items in the Ukrposhta seller’s catalog – small sheet of stamps “Russian warship…DONE!” of W face value, which can be purchased for $49.95 and souvenir magnet with the same stamp, which costs $14.78. Smilyanskyi hopes that other Ukrainian stamps, as well as more Ukrposhta souvenirs, will soon appear on eBay.
In addition, Smilyanskyi believes that the appearance of the official Ukrposhta store on eBay will prevent speculation on this site. We remind, the stamp Russian warship, go …! was being sold for $500-1000 on eBay a month ago.
Sale of the stamp Russian warship… DONE! in Ukraine led to great excitement again. Queues in post offices on May 23, 2022, were 50-100 people, at the Kyiv Main Post Office almost 5,000 people were willing to buy a stamp, who stood in line for two days to get what they wanted.
Online sales, which started on May 24, 2022 at four sites, were accompanied by massive problems. The only store that recovered after a while and gave an opportunity able to place an order was Rozetka. Sites Ukrposhta, Kasta and Prom.ua did not cope with the influx of people and DDoS-attacks.
