Parcel2Go Stresses Importance Of Reliable Parcel Delivery To eBay Sellers

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 sellers should be doing everything possible to appeal to shoppers.

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 service possible.”

Great Savings on Exclusive Holidays to Aruba with Leading Tour Operator

Oranjestad, capital of Aruba, will undergo a dramatic transformation in the New Year, as the Christmas trees and lights are stored away once more and the nation prepares for the busy Carnival month of February. And with multiple parades accompanied by a traditional soundtrack that mixes steel bands, Salsa and a little Dutch brass, the 58th Annual Carnival is a wake-up call for tourists worldwide: Aruba is alive with colour and activity, and it knows how to party!

Travel specialists Kenwood Travel offer some fantastic prices on Aruba Holidays, allowing you to enjoy this exclusive, multi-faceted destination at your own pace. A family of four can enjoy a 7 day Aruba Holidays from Kenwood Travel for a competitive £4339, arriving on the weekend of Oranjestad’s grand parade and including flights from London. A 14 night stay inclusive of this weekend and on the same terms can cost as little as £5147.

“Carnival is a major part of the Caribbean calendar on many islands” observed a representative from Kenwood Travel. “It’s a fantastic time of year to visit the region, and with these prices it would be a shame to pass up the opportunity to visit Aruba especially”. Aruba’s Carnival is arguably the biggest event during the island’s high season, but the cultural gifts of the island and its colourful capital are available year round. It’s also an island blessed with great natural gifts.

Located less than 20 miles (32 kilometres) from Venezuela and mainland South America, Aruba is a slight (but by no means insignificant) island secreted away alongside Bonaire and Curacao. Just 12 degrees north of the equator, Aruba enjoys exceptional weather even by Caribbean standards, with temperatures rarely dipping below 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) and average highs of above 30 degrees (86 º F) in every month of the year.

White beaches on the western and southern coasts provide some of the best Caribbean sunbathing and the interior is a fascinating world of dramatic rock formations, arid scrublands and gentle inclines. The relative obscurity of the island has kept the North and East of the island relatively untouched and nature lovers will be rewarded with 170 different bird species, iguanas, other lizards, unique Aruban snakes and free-roaming sheep, goats and donkeys. These onshore sights are matched by the diversity of life on Aruba’s reefs, making the island a perfect destination for Scuba diving enthusiasts.

Kenwood Travel are a UK-based operator with over thirty years of experience in the tailor-made holiday sector. Fully bonded, they are a direct-sell tour operator providing holidays not just in the Caribbean, but in the Middle and Far East, North Africa, and North and Central America.

California Based Company Sets an Example with its Environment Friendly Initiative by Offering Cash for Junk Cars

Temecula, California (PRWEB) December 8, 2011

Cash for Cars Quick is one of the leading auto recycling companies in the entire United States. The company provides highly advanced auto recycling service to all parts of the United States. Their initiative of offering cash for junk cars has been praised heavily by some of the renowned environmentalists of the country. The company purchases the old cars from the owners and processes each of the reusable parts for recycle and reuse. Their main objective is to minimize the generation of waste in the entire process, unlike the traditional crushing and land filling process that was the common practice for so many years. Apart from protecting the environment, the company also provides a viable option for the owners, to get rid of their old cars. To know more about the company and its services, please visit

Official data from Reuters online suggest that over 14 million junk cars are scrapped every year. However, many owners have a conception that auto recycling service providers are difficult to find, and there are too many hassles associated with the process. They tend to ignore the recycling option because they are not aware of the amount of money the can earn from their old cars. The CEO of the company Mr. William Leonard was recently quoted saying, “Most of the cars owners have no idea about how much they can earn by selling their junk cars. The first step for most sellers is to search online for how to junk a car. This is also why we utilize a SEO professional to make sure they find us when doing that search. We accept all types of cars including those which are gathering rust in your garage for years”. Old cars are painful for the owner to maintain and they are harmful from the environmental perspective, too. There was a time when the cars owners had to pay the junkyards to take away their old vehicles. The days have changed completely with the advent of such eco friendly companies offering cash for junk cars.

It is extremely easy to avail the service offered by Cash for Cars Quick. A towing truck is sent to the car owner within 24 hours of making a call to the tool free number of the company or filling up the online form. The buyers receive their payments within a week. This amount can be as high as $500, or even more depending on the size of the car. The example set by Cash for Cars Quick is certainly one to be followed by companies that make a profit by causing harm to the environment everyday.

About the Company: Cash for Cars Quick is a California based auto recycling company that uses advanced recycling technology to preserve the environment. They provide their service in the entire United States. The environment friendly initiative by the company has received appreciation from the people who care about the environment.

* Over 120 Chinese companies participating in the 9th China Products (Mumbai India) Exhibition 2011 to continue the business momentum with India. The exhibition will be held from 15th – 17th December, 2011 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon (East), Mumbai, India.

Mumbai, India, Wednesday – December 07, 2011 — With China overtaking USA, UK & Japan to become India’s largest trading partner in 2010-11 and trade relations between the two countries continuing to grow at a fast pace, Chinese entrepreneurs are tapping opportunities like the 9th China Products (Mumbai India) Exhibition 2011 to get in touch with Indian businessmen. The exhibition will be held from 15th – 17th December, 2011 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon (East), Mumbai, India.

Trade volumes between India and China reached US $ 61.7 billion in 2010 and it is anticipated to reach US $ 100 billion by 2013. In the first 8 months of 2011, India-China bilateral trade reached US$ 48.17 billion, an increase of 19.47% over the same period last year. The added impetus to the growing Indo-China trade is the debt crisis in Europe and the anticipated slowdown in the US. Additionally, trade confidence between both India & China – which have strong domestic consumption – is also quite high.

According to Mr. Suresh Prabhu, four time Member of Lok Sabha and former Union Cabinet Minister for Power, Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises, who has consented to preside as Chief Guest at Opening Ceremony of the expo, “Many areas of common interest between India and China can be addressed through bilateral co-operation.

The 9th China Products (Mumbai India) Exhibition 2011 ( ) is the biggest platform for Indian and Chinese entrepreneurs to interact with each other, and – as in the previous years – will serve as a platform for the Indian Industry to explore long-term business associations with Chinese companies in the form of tie-ups, joint ventures, collaborations and import-export trading relations.

The trade show is being organized by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), Sub-councils of Commercial Industry, Guangdong, Ningbo and Hangzhou.

Sharing and networking with the international HPC Association will enable Indian consumers to benefit from the experiences of other countries and be on-line in this information age.
