StampStore’s first month transition to the HipStamp selling platform was a huge success!
Just how huge? There were 1,588 orders, 500 more than the previous high in December 2021. The orders totaled 8,140 items and more than $91,000 in sales, which is the first time since December 2021 that sales have been more than $90,000. Also introduced was the option at checkout to have items costing more than $50 certified by the American Philatelic Expertizing Service (APEX).
Coming soon, APS members using HipStamp will have member badges to identify themselves, giving buyers confidence that they will abide by the APS Code of Ethics.
Both sellers and buyers have reported the move to HipStamp as a positive experience. Several sellers have seen a 25 percent to 35 percent increase in sales. Buyers have sent compliments on the fast shipping time, packing of orders, condition, description and pricing of items received.
New sellers can request a New Sellers packet that will include selling information and allow them to submit the first 10 submissions for free. Still have questions? Visit https://aps.buzz/APSHipAnswers.
