(PRWEB UK) 20 October 2011
Following the release of the iPhone 4S, online parcel delivery company Parcel2Go has urged anyone selling old iPhone handsets through eBay to use a trusted courier when shipping to buyers.
Internet auction and retail site eBay has revealed that it expects sales of old iPhone handsets to increase by up to 70 per cent following the release of the new iPhone 4S on October 14. The company saw a similar occurrence last year when the iPhone 4 went on sale, and so eBay bosses are confident in the expected surge.
Courier company Parcel2Go has called on eBay sellers to use a professional courier when posting iPhone 4 handsets sold through the internet.
Parcel2Go marketing director Richard Mercer said: “We expect that many inexperienced sellers will be auctioning their old iPhone 4 handsets on eBay now the iPhone 4S has been released and caution them to be aware of the importance of opting for a reliable courier.
“Sellers should properly address and package their parcels to make sure they arrive at their destination safe and sound. We believe that by using one of the many dependable courier services available they will be able to achieve a smoother delivery and avoid eBay disputes caused by lost or damaged packages.”
The iPhone is one of the bestselling smartphone handsets in the world, with over 18.65 million sold in the three months to March 2011. More and more people are turning towards Apple products and eBay claims over $2 billion worth of sales were made through mobile devices as of January 2011.
When selling anything of value on eBay it is advised that you make use of a secure posting method once a sale has been finalised. Bolton-based Parcel2Go is in partnership with a number of big-name parcel delivery companies and is able to provide collection and delivery services, with delivery to international countries also available.
