Fil Adams-Mercer, the founder of the UK's largest online parcel delivery service Parcel2Go, has said he believes online marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon are still a great option for start-up businesses.

Speaking during an exclusive interview for the Parcel2Go daily blog, Adams-Mercer spoke of his own experiences setting up businesses, provided tips for budding entrepreneurs and even suggested a business plan he claims anyone can make money from.    

But when it comes to online trading, Adams-Mercer believes eBay and Amazon remain two of the best options for start-ups.

"eBay and Amazon are probably the best places to start anything off," he said. "But it is more difficult than you think because a lot of people don't calculate things like their shipping costs and VAT."

According to the millionaire, one of the most important things that anyone can do if they're thinking of getting their own business off the ground is to simply get on with it and make a start.

He said: "Stop being afraid. Yes, you will get ripped off sometimes in life but it's better to do something and fail than not do it, just as long as you learn from it.

"You'd find that you'd work for half the money you're on now if you could survive off it, and be a lot happier being the master of your own destiny."

Parcel2Go Courier Services are now used by more than 750,000 people in the UK. A huge range of domestic and international services are on offer, including economy, same day and next day parcel delivery from Parcel2Go.com.
