Cooperation between online platform operators and circular service providers is still quite unusual today. However, eBay and Interzero entered into a comprehensive partnership back in the spring. At eBay Open, the online meeting of professional dealers of the sales platform, this partnership can be experienced for the first time on September 7 and 8 in Berlin. Digital platform operators, and eBay in particular, have set themselves ambitious sustainability goals. At the same time, in July of this year, a further regulatory step was implemented to strengthen the recycling system: according to the Packaging Act, online retailers must now also participate in the packaging return system, and digital market operators must now also take advantage of the new requirement to control this. “Interzero supports eBay and its dealers with an online packaging licensing store, Lizenzero, and monitors the change. For us, the goal is to keep complexity at a low level despite more regulations and higher costs and to improve processes through our digital solution and the accompanying transparency,” says Klaudija Vegener, head of Lizenzero at Interzero. Decisive for the partnership are Interzero’s many years of experience and operational capabilities. The return of transport packaging and the double Interseroh+ system are part of the portfolio of solutions, as well as the optimization of packaging for recycling. “Even for this short time, the cooperation in this unusual constellation between an online retailer and a circular service provider has brought us great benefits. Thanks to Interzero, the transition went smoothly after the extension of the licensing obligation for packaging to online retail in July. We look forward to the meeting and joint discussions with our dealers at the eBay Open in Berlin,” says Marius Haufe, Senior Project Manager Managed Marketplace Services at eBay Germany. Packaging is just the beginning when it comes to Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in online retail: from In 2023, retailers will also be required to inspect waste electrical and electronic equipment. Here, eBay and Interzero are already working on a solution for retailers through the so-called Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) portal, provided by a recycling service provider. This topic will also presented to online sellers at the eBay Open by the Interzero team led by Head of Business Development Patrik Kantos-Brava. There will be a stand as a contact point, and Interzero will participate in the panel discussion “EU regulations: Something is coming!” as well as two workshops.
