  1. These figures mean nothing at all for the marketplace/paypal without full numbers for both mobile and non-mobile.

  2. Had to go into the office today, to help pick all the sales. Can’t believe how much has sold on ebay…and still selling. I think I chose the right Dr Martens stock this year!

  3. I am in the office too but Royal Mail’s despatch manager online is not working. It is a nightmare. Anyone know when it will be fixed?

  4. They may be keen on mobile, but they dont get how retailing works. All those one off mobile purchases are missed sales opportunites – they really dont get it do they? how would it be if I popped into Tescos and just bought milk?
