Manchester, UK (PRWEB UK) 15 April 2013
The UK's largest online parcel delivery service, Parcel2Go, has urged retailers to make the most of advances in mobile technology by increasing their exposure through online marketplaces.
At the moment, television transmitters across Britain are being adapted to carry 4G mobile Internet signals. The technology will make it much quicker for users of smartphones and 4G-enabled tablet computers to browse the Internet and make online purchases through their devices.
Research published by eBay at the end of March suggested that the arrival of universal 4G coverage in the UK could result in a £1.8bn boost to the retail economy in a 12-month period. For mobile retail sales, it would represent a 113 per cent increase in spending.
Parcel2Go believes companies that are not already trading online through sites, such as eBay and Amazon, need to carefully consider the benefits that exposure through mobile sites could bring to their businesses. eBay's research found that speed and reliability were the two major frustrations that currently held consumers back from making mobile purchases – but this is all set to change once 4G is made widely available.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said, "The opportunities are clear and there's no doubt that sales via mobile channels are only going to increase. It makes sense for businesses to seriously consider the benefits of selling through sites, like eBay and Amazon, that have industry-leading mobile sites and can provide exposure to the growing number of mobile shoppers."
Processing online orders has become even easier, thanks to Parcel2Go's new range of bulk shipping tools, designed to make it simple for retailers to gather shipping data in one place and organise parcel delivery in the UK from Parcel2Go with minimum fuss.
