With just a few weeks to go until eBay and Amazon's anticipated busiest selling days of the year, online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has called on businesses of all sizes to make sure they stay in control of their order channels.
Online retail and auction website eBay has predicted that December 2 will be its busiest day, while Amazon has picked the next day – Monday, December 3. Bolton-based Parcel2Go has called on firms which trade online through the marketplaces to ensure their systems are prepared to cope with the likely spike in traffic, and to consider making use of Parcel2Go's seller shipping tools.
The company's bulk upload tool for eBay makes organising parcel deliveries to multiple customers a breeze, even during the festive season. Parcel2Go's Amazon API service, meanwhile, allows Amazon Marketplace sellers to quickly and easily download sales data, including shipping addresses, into a Parcel2Go account and from there organise package shipping using a cheap international courier company such as FedEx or Parcelforce.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: "It's dangerously easy for business' usually streamlined delivery processes to spiral out of control at this time of year when there are so many new orders coming in. Many consumers leave buying Christmas presents until the last minute and so we're urging companies to make sure they're prepared, and have processes in place to be able to handle a surge in business.
"Parcel2Go's bulk upload tool for eBay and Amazon API service were designed to make it simpler for online sellers to handle their deliveries and we're calling on businesses to make use of these tools, along with services such as online parcel tracking, so they can stay on top of their domestic and international parcel delivery operations over the crucial festive period."
