New StuffAlert Website and Improved eBay Alert Service Launched by SonicZero Limited

SonicZero London, England 31st May 2012 is pleased to announce the successful launch of its new upgraded website and improved email eBay alert service that helps increase the probability of buyers finding exactly what is being searched for on eBay.

eBay buyers have been using StuffAlert to locate hard to find items on eBay since 2007. Now, as well as setting up alerts when no matching items are found, users can create email alerts where up to 25 items have been found. A complete record of all the items found matching users searches is automatically created and available to users on the website.

With StuffAlert users can quickly and easily search eBay and set up email alerts for the items they are looking for. StuffAlert continues to search eBay all day everyday and automatically sends email eBay alerts notifying users of new listings with direct links to the item on eBay. Users can manage all their eBay searches and alerts in one place with no cap on how many alerts can be set up and with complete control over email alerts.Passwords are encrypted so only users know what searches they have set up.

“The decision to upgrade the service was made in response to users requests and coincided with a decision to get eBay approval to increase the frequency of our automatic eBay searches. The result has been to deliver more frequent and consistent eBays alerts to our users who in turn are successfully completing more transactions” stated Rene Bachman, Managing Director of SonicZero.

StuffAlert currently works on iPads and other similar tablet devices and should be accessible via smartphone later this year. It is available to eBay buyers using the US and UK eBay marketplaces. Plans are already underway for StuffAlert to be rolled out to other English speaking countries in the forthcoming weeks.

Parcel2Go Issues Last Christmas Post Dates Reminder

Anyone planning to send Christmas packages in time for December 25 has just a matter of days left if they want to ensure their parcels arrive on time, Parcel2Go has said.

The online parcel delivery specialist is reminding private individuals and businesses that they must act soon if they still have consignments waiting to be sent.

Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: “Most of Parcel2Go’s final Christmas posting dates for international destinations, Europe and the UK have now passed, but there are still a few courier companies accepting deliveries. Our advice for anyone hoping to get presents or business consignments to people before Christmas is to act now.”

Customers with deliveries heading for Europe have until Tuesday, December 20 to get their package off with the Parcel2Go Express Saver or DHL EU Express services. When it comes to UK deliveries, then people can book a TNT UK Express service service through Parcel2Go until Tuesday, December 20.

Once this year’s festivities are out of the way, it will be back to work for many people across Britain, including Parcel2Go and the majority of UK’s leading courier services. Deliveries and collections will be made as usual on Wednesday December 28, Thursday December 29 and Friday December 30.

Richard added: “Once the festivities are over for another year, Parcel2Go and its courier partners are fully aware that many individuals and businesses will have important packages to send in the three days between Christmas and New Year.

“We want to remind customers that they can rely on the UK’s largest online parcel delivery service and renowned domestic and international shipping companies such as FedEx, Parcelforce and City Link to get their parcel deliveries to destinations on time and in perfect condition, as they do during the rest of the year.”

Parcel Couriers Make Preparations For Festive Rush

Couriers with services available through online parcel delivery firm Parcel2Go are making their final preparations ahead of the Christmas season.

Thousands of Christmas shoppers came to rely on courier services last year when severe weather conditions around the UK made it look like many people would not be able to get their presents to friends and family members in time. This year, industry-leading firms such as UPS and FedEx are making preparations early in anticipation of a last minute rush.

Last month, courier specialist FedEx said it was expecting a 12 per cent year-on-year increase in the volume of goods handled worldwide between November 24 and Christmas Day, peaking at an estimated 17 million shipments on December 12. The rise in the number of packages being sent is said to be down to an increase in e-commerce, with more people feeling comfortable buying Christmas presents over the internet. To cope with the festive rush the company is employing an extra 20,000 seasonal staff.

International delivery firm UPS will employ an extra 55,000 seasonal staff across America. The company has predicted a late surge in demand as consumers leave it until the last minute to buy their presents over the internet. UPS believes its busiest day will be December 22, when it will handle about 26 million items worldwide.

Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: “It’s great news that our shipping partners are looking ahead and planning how to provide the best possible level of service to UK consumers over the Christmas period. It’s always a challenge at this time of year when shipping volumes peak, but Parcel2Go customers can rest assured that their items are in safe hands with our couriers.

“As the hard winter conditions that have hit the UK in recent years have shown us, planning ahead is always sensible. We’re calling on individuals and businesses to make sure they organise parcel deliveries as early as possible to ensure their packages arrive on time.”

eBay Sellers Should Make Their Views Known, Says Parcel2Go

Online auction and retail website eBay has recently launched a consultation with its sellers, asking them for their thoughts on how the company should provide customer service in the future, in a bid to improve people’s experience. According to online parcel delivery service Parcel2Go, this is an ideal opportunity for sellers to really get their points across and make their thoughts known.

Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: “This is one opportunity that should not be missed. Sellers have everything to gain by making their feelings known to eBay and providing constructive feedback that can be used to improve the website and customer service processes.”

The survey has thrown up some potential new services that eBay may be looking to introduce, such as making customer support available though social media channels. The survey also asks sellers how important 24/7 customer support is to them, what their thoughts are on improved email support and how they feel about the possibility of mobile phone support.

Richard added: “eBay recently unveiled its new virtual shopping basket and a Christmas shopping wish list feature is set to be available at the start of next month. These are all things that can help sellers to maximise revenue and hopefully this new survey will help to streamline the selling process and allow eBay sellers to go on and provide a better experience for their customers.”

The team at Parcel2Go is continually looking for new ways to make buying and selling on eBay quicker and easier. Earlier this year the company launched its quick quote shipping tool which sellers can embed in their item pages to allow buyers to access speedy shipping quotes. By providing quick quotes on domestic and international shipping services, users are provided with the widest possible choice of services and are far likelier to receive a good service.

Parcel2Go Warns Online Christmas Shoppers Not To Cut Corners When It Comes To Deliveries

With a recent survey from HSBC revealing that more than one in ten people plan on making use of online shopping outlets this Christmas, Parcel2Go has urged shoppers to use a trusted courier for deliveries.

The survey also found that despite the state of the economy, people intend on spending just as much on Christmas this year as they have in the past, with an average spend of £560 per person.

Richard Mercer, marketing director of Parcel2Go, said: “In the current financial climate Parcel2Go understands that people want to be able to enjoy Christmas as much as possible, and that means they may end up feeling forced to cut corners elsewhere in order to buy all of the presents, food and other things they need to make the season special.

“As HSBC’s survey shows, many people will be turning towards the internet when buying Christmas presents this year, but when it comes to getting purchases delivered we just want shoppers to be absolutely certain that they are using a reliable delivery method so that their presents arrive on time and in good condition, which all of the couriers that we work with can provide.”

He continued: “We’ve seen it before – shoppers buy Christmas presents from foreign sellers over eBay and other online auction websites and choose a cheaper delivery method, thinking that they’re saving money. They end up having to wait weeks for their items though, whereas if they had chosen a courier, their purchases could have been with them in a matter of days.”

Many different courier services work in conjunction with Bolton-based Parcel2Go, and shoppers buying online can pick between them to get the best value for money on a high-quality delivery service that will save them having to put up with any heartache over the Christmas period.

Parcel2Go Simplifies Shipping For Amazon Marketplace Sellers

It has just become easier than ever for Amazon traders to give their customers access to a wide range of fast and efficient shipping options, thanks to the UK online parcel delivery specialist, Parcel2Go.

For years, Parcel2Go has been helping online businesses to offer delivery services from some of the world’s leading couriers through its free Application Programming Interface (API). The system can be integrated with a wide variety of e-commerce platforms, allowing a business’ customers to automatically access details of parcel delivery services once they have gone through the firm’s checkout process.

The API provides Amazon Marketplace sellers with a quick and simple way to manage their orders and book a specialist courier service. It enables businesses with an Amazon Seller account to download details of sold items, including shipping addresses, directly into a Parcel2Go account. Previously it was necessary to upload an Excel spreadsheet with sales data in order to take advantage of the service, but this is no longer the case thanks to the latest update from Parcel2Go.

Once Amazon sales details have been transferred into a company’s Parcel2Go account, the firm will have access to a wide range of domestic, European and worldwide delivery services from leading courier companies including FedEx, ParcelForce and DHL.

Richard Mercer, Head of Marketing at Parcel2Go, said: “The new system has been designed to make it quicker and simpler than ever for Amazon Marketplace sellers to stay on top of their shipping operation. Access to discounted shipping options are readily available and as couriers will pick up packages from a residential or commercial address at no extra charge, businesses will not have to spend time carting their goods to a post office.

“Parcel2Go is constantly looking for ways to help businesses make eBay parcel delivery or Amazon parcel delivery shipments for less, and we believe this new system for Amazon sellers really breaks new ground.”

Businesses using that want to take advantage of the API simply need to register with Parcel2Go, login to the ‘My Parcel’ section of their account and click on the ‘Integration’ tab. Further instructions on booking a cheap courier are provided by clicking Amazon Item Shipping.

CQout Sets Sights On eBay Crown

CQout, the international online market place and auction community, has announced that it is setting its sights on disaffected eBay sellers as part of its US expansion plans.

CQout managing director, Siamak Bashi said, “We have recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary of providing auction services to UK where our reputation for trust and security is second to none which has helped us to grow to become one of the largest auction service providers. Our plans are now to continue our growth by providing tailored services to our US customers. We believe auction users in the US deserve a better service than they are currently getting f r o m  eBay.”

The decision to move into the US market and to take on eBay was made following customer demands for an auction service which responds to its customer needs rather than impose rule changes every few months, like the recent imposition of certain enforced ‘Post Free’ product offerings which have alienated many previously loyal users.

The general ethos at CQout has always been to be flexible and respond to what customers ask for. Siamak highlighted, “We recently had the owner of US movie poster website who wanted to run their own auction site. But rather than go through the expense of buying software and hassle of running an auction site they asked us if we would tailor our services for their site. Within days we had an auction service running on their site”.

Siamak believes CQout is ideally positioned to take the fight to eBay as its pricing structure is lower than eBay and has proven particularly attractive to medium to large sellers with its no listing fee policy. This means a seller can list thousands or even tens of thousands of items on CQout at zero cost, which means additional exposure and marketing for their products for free.

While based in the UK, CQout has taken several important steps to ensure a safe, secure and seamless service is provided for all US customers.

CQout online auctions services for US customers will be provided on the top level domain, but it will use exactly the same secure technologies which have been tried and test over the last 10 years in the UK market, and lead to it being the only auction site to be certified hacker proof to standards set by the FBI and audited independently by McAfee Secure, one of the biggest names in internet security.

The US auction service is also fully integrated with the rest of CQout auction operations, so when a seller lists their items on the US site, it can automatically be shown and made available to International buyers f r o m any country the seller chooses via a simple tick box selection on the selling form. The sellers products are seamlessly displayed and sold in the seller’s chosen currency, but prices are also displayed automatically in the buyers’ home currency. This makes the buying decision much easier for customers and is therefore less prone to mistakes and abandoned sales. This is a big contrast to eBay where sellers who want to sell internationally have to list separately on other eBay sites and pay additional listings fees. The CQout in-house payment systems SecurePay and EasyPay are also available to all CQout buyers and sellers f r o m any countries where Visa & MasterCards are available, which covers virtually the whole world.

Value Target Will Be Launching Its On-Line Bartering Services On Sunday, June 7, 2009 As A Predominately On-Line Bartering System

Value Target is a place where users list those items or services that they want to trade for other items or services. Value Target has included many of the member features, such as distance from, that allow its users to quickly locate those goods and/or services of interest.


Whether it is a good or a service it’s not difficult to find sites that allow you to pay for a “for sell” listing. However, currency is only one form of commerce; an equal trade of services is another. There are many “trading” sites available to the on-line user, but they can be limited to the regional areas or lack the fine grained user functionality of locating within a close proximity.

Value Target at launch will be offering the first 250 item listings at no cost to the user. Two types will be available, and always for free. Users that want to just give away goods are welcome to create a “Free” listing. Users that are in need of a service or good but haven’t found a listing to trade with are welcome to create a “Wanted” listing.

Value Target allows users to create paid item listings that covers items and services. When it comes to vehicle, real estate, and watercraft listings we have taken it further to incorporate specific descriptions of each. For no charge users are allowed to create “Free Listings” and “Wanted Listings” in hopes to accomplish trades. Even the on-site advertising is user generated to boost any users success at generating interest.

Great selling sites offer users the ability to see all products, yet fine grain searches down to the most relevant as well as closest. Value Target recognizes that; while a web developer may be able to trade programming services all over the world, a dentist may only trade services in the next city. Value Target has included geo location to help users find items by proximity to their location.

Communication between users is key as well. With accounts, users are allowed to send messages between their accounts, or questions and offers on a submitted listing. When a user registers they can elect to receive notification of their message, question, or offer via email. Additionally they can elect to receive an email for those new items activated that interests them.

Value Target is a place that fully recognizes that money doesn’t make the world go round. Everyone has something that they can trade for something else.
