The Rise and Rise of Online Shopping

clock April 19, 2012 05:05 by author Fahmeda A - Parcel Pete's Helper

Online shopping has taken the UK by storm! Online retail sales increased by 14% last year to more than £50bn, with predictions that the growth will continue to hit high streets, according to a new report.

It's natural to see consumer appetite for online shopping growing year on year. This is not because people are spending more money but because they are shopping in the most convenient and affordable way for their individual needs. British online retailers will enjoy an average rise in online sales of 14% this year according to reports.

However, are our online shopping days set to increase in price? A recent article in The Sun newspaper highlighted how YODEL, which holds contracts with ASDA, Amazon, Littlewoods and Tesco are planning to increase their prices to the retailers in order to cope with the boom in online shopping. The increase in fees would be so YODEL can improve their infrastructure to improve service. Any ultimate price rise of online goods in the future will depend on whether retailers absorb the higher delivery rate.

As an ipostparcels.com customer you needn’t worry we’ve actually lowered our prices starting from just £3.75! And Parcel Pete doesn’t use any middle men to collect and deliver your parcels; we personally deliver all items through our parent company network, UK Mail. So for all you online retailers whether you’re using eBay or your own platform, ipostparcels.com is the most affordable courier in the UK for next day parcel collection and delivery.



eBay it with express delivery

clock April 16, 2012 12:04 by author Parcel Pete

When you need to buy, sell, or send something in a hurry, the internet is absolutely indispensable. Easy home access to a global market means that everyone can buy and sell from their living room, meaning price is more representative than ever and competition for even the most unusual and unlikely goods can be rife. That's a bonus for eBay sellers, who often get more for their goods on an online auction than they ever would selling them in a shop where they'd have to rely on foot traffic to get interest as well tackling the associated costs of having a physical shop.

If you sell something unusual, eBay really is a blessing, not least because it is so effective at appearing in search engine searches. It can be the best place to get a good price for that bit of cult memorabilia or your hand-sewn doilies... however, amateur eBayers beware, because a single bit of bad feedback can wreak havoc with your ratings! However, help is at hand to make sure that you remain an exemplary eBayer and can offer potential customers the holy internet grail which is express parcel delivery!

Here at ipostparcels.com we've quite literally made it our business to get goods from one place to another. We can offer guaranteed next day parcel delivery from and to anywhere in the UK from only £3.74. That also includes a free collection, £50 free cover, delivery notifications and full online tracking. These are the aspects that will enable you to offer a professional service whether you ship few or many items through eBay each week.

Furthermore, we’ve made things even easier for you – you can even link your eBay account with ipostparcels.com to enable you to pull through delivery details for your sold items. So what are you waiting for? Why keep your buyers waiting? Try our next day parcel collection and delivery today.

 



What’s so new about the new iPad?

clock March 29, 2012 12:15 by author Parcel Pete

The highly anticipated iPad 3 (officially known as ‘The New iPad’) has finally arrived. With the rumour mill boiling over and eager fans chewing down their nails in expectancy, Apple finally laid to rest all the gossips and put us out of our misery on March 7th 2012. The device was launched in the first week of March and was shipped across the world the very next week, including deliveries made here in the UK by our very own UK Mail. However, was it worth the wait? Has it lived up to our expectations?  Maybe not so…

Apple, known for its technical excellence and innovation have released what they believe is ‘resolutionary’. Don’t get me wrong the screen resolution is immense the 2048 x 1536 pixel Retina Display is bursting with colour, saturation and sharpness but is it an upgrade you can live without? I think so.  It’s not as if the iPad 2 had a bad display, not by any stretch. Most of the time you’re not close enough to your tablet's screen to pick up the pixels anyway.

The 5 megapixel iSight camera means you have a capable digital camera… the size of a magazine! Apple is pitching the new iPad as a photographer’s companion but that is unlikely to be true.  Whilst they’ve improved the lens of the iSight the front facing camera remains the same as the iPad 2.

Due to the bigger battery the new iPad is slightly thicker; this is probably the only difference in design compared to the iPad 2. Some have argued Apple is losing its innovation credibility; the opportunity for a competitor to crash the Apple party is now. And believe you and me, Android devices are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with.

Going back to my first question, what’s new about the new iPad? Well not much really. However it is the best on the market and remains at the top of the hill. If you don’t have an iPad, then get this one, if you do have an iPad 2 then stick to it and wait for number 4! Alternatively you could always sell it on eBay and go for the iPad 3.
