Our top 5 electronic items

Here at PCHQ, we've seen a surge of new and preloved electronic items added to our marketplace over the last few weeks. From phones, to tablets, to cameras; users from up and down the UK have been heading to the Paperclip marketplace in an attempt to find a new home for their unused tech...and it's working.

In fact, over the last fortnight, more than 50% of offers made on our platform were for items in our 'Electronics' category, with many of them listed for a fraction of their RRP.

As of this month, we've had over 14,000 new, used and refurbished electronic items added for sale on our platform!

With that in mind, we thought we'd bring you our pick of the top electronic items currently available on our beloved marketplace...

GoPro camera

First up is this preloved GoPro HERO3. This portable HD camera comes with 1080P video resolution, case and has a 32GB Micro SD card included in the deal. A real bargain at only £30 with free shipping to anywhere in the UK!

Apple AirPods

Whether you're hitting the gym or just vibing out quietly in the office, you can't beat the Apple AirPods Pro. With their amazing sound quality and sleek design, there's no wonder these noise cancelling are so popular on our marketplace. You can get your hands on these beauties for only £60.00 with nothing to pay for postage.

MacBook Pro

This refurbished MacBook Pro was recently listed by Paperclip seller @gillians and is available for less than £400 - including postage! It features a 16-inch display and comes with all original cables and accessories. Hurry, at this price it won't be on here for long...

Cannon Printer

Less glamorous but always handy. This Canon PIXMA TS3150 Wireless Inkjet Printer comes loaded with brand new black and colour cartridges. You'll get everything you need for a quick set-up and you'll even a free packet of printer paper thrown in too!

Sony CyberShot

We're finishing off with one for the professionals. This awesome quality of the Sony CyberShot camera is perfect for classic photography and video creation. It comes complete with tripod and is a steal at less than £200 including postage.

But that's not all! There are thousands of new, preowned and refurbished electricals on the Paperclip marketplace - so if you haven't already, make sure you download the latest version of our app.

Meet the Team: Keith

Good evening from Paperclip HQ!

We're back with another instalment of our new(ish) 'Meet the Team' series. Today we're meeting Keith, our Chief Commercial Officer. As his title would suggest, Keith is the main man when it comes to developing Paperclip's commercial strategy and building relationships with our beloved customers and partners. We sat down to talk about life at tech start-up, the circular economy...and ramen noodles.

Now we've already met his pet pooch Jasper, but let's hear from the man himself...

Hey Keith! Would you like to introduce yourself to the blogosphere?

Hi I'm Keith and I'm the CCO at Paperclip. I've been with the company a little over two years now. Prior to joining the team, I worked at a social media start-up aimed at university students, and prior to that I worked at UCAS Media.

So what's a typical day in the life of Keith?

As Paperclip is a start-up, my working days are quite varied, but I will generally have a video call with Paperclip’s CEO Rich and members of the Marketing and Design teams. Developing proposals for customers or prospective customers takes up much of my day and often I will be looking at market analysis and debating our strategic approach with Rich. I tend to end my working day reviewing the new items that have been listed on Paperclip and seeing what items have been traded.

What do you like about working at Paperclip?

The people and the proposition. We have a great bunch of hard-working and creative people at Paperclip who are united behind the vision, “to change the way people think about their possessions”. We're enabling people to buy and sell unwanted items, or to rent instead of buying, reducing waste, helping the environment - and people's pockets.

What project that you enjoyed working on the most here?

That’s easy, “Listings never Leave”. The whole team Paperclip got involved with this and it’s a feature that really will transform how people think about the things they own.

Do you have any pets?

Jasper the beagle. He’s just over a year old and is quite a handful. Other beagle owners will know what I mean.  But he is a really lovely dog and a big part of our family life.

Question: do you think Jasper gets his own way a lot of the time?
What's your favourite movie?

It’s difficult to narrow down to just one film. I like Chinatown, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, The Shining...most films with Jack Nicholson. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with Gary Oldman is also a favourite.

If you could pick anywhere in the world to visit, where would it be?

I would love to go to Japan. There seems just so much to do there. Tokyo, Mount Fuji, Kyoto, the Bullet train and of course ramen!
