If you’re less than thrilled with any of the presents under the tree this Christmas, eBay wants you to unload them online.

And the auction site is offering its Valet service for free on Dec. 26 and 27 to try to get more sellers to use it.

Valet simplifies the process for sellers, taking care of the whole thing rather than requiring the seller to list, price and ship the items.

Usually, Valet takes a 20 to 40 percent commission on sales for its service, but this time, sellers will receive 100 percent of the proceeds, Fortune reported earlier this month.

Users can print out a label from Valet and ship their item directly to eBay. eBay is also setting up pop-up shopping stations at Westfield malls.

Fortune reported that Valet is only accepting items that typically sell for $40 or more, and it won’t accept fragile items or jewelry.

Valet fees will be waived for items shipped through Jan. 3, as long as you print your label Dec. 26 or 27. If your item doesn’t sell, it will get sent back to you for free.
