Online retailer records best month in its history, receiving three times as many orders compared to this time last year
Online consumer retailer BuyMobilePhones.net recorded its best ever month for sales, with turnover topping £7 million.
The firm’s managing director, Paul Sisson, said online sales increased by around 10 per cent from its previous best month of July and it is receiving, on average, three times the number of orders compared with the same period last year.
Sisson attributed the boost in trade to the launch of the iPhone 5 and a price reduction on the Samsung Galaxy S III as well as previous iPhone models.
He added the firm is on track to double annual turnover to more than £120 million in its current financial year.
Sisson said: “Competition is also intensifying between handset manufacturers, resulting in prices being driven down, meaning customers are getting better value. Other Android manufacturers are also dropping handset prices in order to compete.”
