Los Angeles, CA (July 8, 2005) - Shipwire.com (www.shipwire.com), a discount shipping service operated by LOC Global, LLC, today launched enhanced services for eBay sellers. As part of a relationship with DSI Insurance, a leading provider of discounted shipping insurance, eBay sellers can now print a shipping label from the Shipwire Web site, complete with U.S. Postal Service postage and DSI parcel insurance, on a plain sheet of 8.5" x 11" paper.
