Shipping eBay items made easy
According to the Eurostat E-commerce statistics for individuals:
65% of internet users shopped online in 2015. This is an increase of 15% from 2007.
These stats are not surprising, considering how online shopping has made our lives easier. At least when it comes to buying easily transported small items. As long as hoards of monstrous drones do not fly over our heads to deliver items we purchase on Amazon, eBay, OLX or similar e-commerce websites, we are frequently expected to make the transport arrangments by ourselves.
Some of you may recall moments when, sitting in front of the computer and scratching your forehead, you have thought to yourself, “How on earth am I going to ship this [insert any oversized or unusual item you have recently bought online]?”.
Amazon, eBay, OLX
Often when an item is oversized or unusual, sellers do not provide delivery. They tend to offer local collection, which is not always an option for you.
Sellers might also reduce costs by charging extra for delivery. To avoid this, try transport auctions!

Shipping cross-border purchases? It’s easy and cost-effective
Purchasing from other EU member states is a rising trend among European citizens. It has increased from 25% in 2012 to 30% in 2015. Another growing tendency is buying from sellers outside the EU; this has increased from 13% to 18%.
An interesting analysis provided by Postnord shows delivery preferences among European shoppers. The Dutch have the highest expectations, hoping to receive their purchase within 1-2 days. On the other hand, the Spanish are willing to be slightly more patient – one in four is ready to wait up to six working days.
With delivery standards set high, transport providers need to live up to customers’ expectations. Clicktrans.com gives you the chance to list your item and get quotes right away!
The great thing about getting quotes first is that it enables you to compare the quotes transporters are ready to make. Your agreement with one of them is binding only when you click ‘Accept’.
