Millions of people use musicMagpie every year to sell their unwanted items, and the site has paid out more than £6m to customers who have sold their items since 2007.


Since 2012, Whistl has collaborated with musicMagpie in its endeavour to meet huge delivery demand from shoppers all over the world; maintaining great value service, a low average selling price while still meeting customers’ expectations and those of the marketplaces they trade in.


Whistl devised a cost effective bespoke solution for delivery of musicMagpie’s large letters, packets and parcels enabling them to maximise use of its own internal sortation process to deliver a cost-effective service when fulfilling customer orders 24/7. As a result, there was a significant reduction in cost of delivery with quality of service maintained in the UK and globally. musicMagpie was the first business in the world to pass 5 million in eBay feedback, and continuing to work with Whistl has only helped to secure future milestones. What’s more, musicMagpie’s current on-time delivery metric for eBay is well within their parameters for top-rated seller status!


Whistl have always strived to assist us in reaching a resolution.

It is refreshing to work with a team that is commercially driven, but who genuinely seem to care about our business and its success.
