Japan Post will form a business tie-up with U.S.-based online auction giant eBay Inc. (EBAY) to allow Japanese Internet users to more easily sell items overseas, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported in its Monday evening edition.

With the tie-up, which is set to be announced Tuesday, the U.S. company aims to expand its user base in Japan, while Japan Post hopes to trigger a turnaround in usage of its postal services, the report said.

To encourage more Japanese to use eBay, Japan Post will introduce a service in spring 2012 providing English-language support for putting items up for international auction on the site, seen as one of the main sticking points for Japanese would-be users, the report indicated.
