An estimated 5.8 million Christmas shoppers visited the retail
and auction website eBay last Sunday and with many millions more due to
visit over the coming days, online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go
has called on sellers to be prepared for the Christmas rush.
Data released earlier this month claimed the average Brit will spend just over £250
on gifts this year and Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said online

He said offering a wide range of delivery options from courier services is one way for eBay sellers
to ensure that they are making their auctions and fixed-price sale items available
to as many people as possible.
He said: "Sellers offering limited domestic and international parcel delivery options are restricting themselves unnecessarily. All the retail
figures being released at the moment point to significant opportunities this year
for online businesses, with shoppers looking to enjoy the festive season before they
think about tightening their belts further after Christmas.
"Parcel2Go's eBay widget has been designed to make it quick and easy to add parcel
delivery information to product listings and the wide range of services available
will certainly appeal to potential customers."
The important role that smartphones will play in online buying this Christmas has
also been stressed. eBay expected about two items to be purchased every second
during Super Sunday, once again highlighting the ever increasing use of mobiles by
shoppers in the UK.
"The remaining shopping days before Christmas represent a fantastic opportunity for
sellers," Richard added. "We're reminding them to act now, get their parcel
delivery options up to scratch and make sure their customers receive the best
