Leading Online Jewellers Select MyThings for Strategic Partnership1
Free service offers powerful management and valuation tools for customers’ belongings
MyThings (mythings.com), the leading global online registry of valuables, has announced partnerships with the UK’s top online jewellers, providing additional benefits and services for items purchased on their websites. Goldsmiths, Geraldonline, Beaverbrooks, F.Hinds, and Ampalian have now integrated their sales processes with MyThings, offering every customer automatic registration of their purchase in a secure online portfolio. Customers may register all their valuables free of charge.
With MyThings portfolios, members have everything they need to enjoy what they own. For example, members can:
· Store details of their belongings online, including receipts, certificates and other documentation
· Compile a private inventory of their belongings for insurance-related purposes
· Track the value of their things; gain access to relevant information, services and accessories
· Share stories about their belongings with friends, family and other members
· Explore other people’s collections by viewing publicly displayed items
Gary O’Brien, Chief Executive of Geraldonline, remarks, “We aim to offer our customers the highest level of security possible when they are purchasing valuable items from us. Our partnership with MyThings helps us extend this benefit after the sale, while also providing additional services, such as insurance and warranties, to help our customers make the most of their valuables and collectible items. We believe MyThings gives customers an additional reason to shop online with us.”
Jeremy Smith, Head of Marketing at Beaverbrooks is equally enthusiastic. “MyThings offers a great benefit for our customers. We can all be complacent when it comes to recording information for insurance purposes—particularly important for goods of high value. MyThings makes it easy for our customers do something constructive to protect their possessions. Any retailer of high-end goods can increase his customer focus by linking up with MyThings.”
Malcolm Cooper, Managing Director of Ampalian, notes, “Ampalian is focused on selling fine jewellery. Because of our increased focus on valuable merchandise, we wanted to provide our customers with additional benefits, particularly when it comes to protection. Free registration with MyThings gives our customers the peace of mind knowing that should the item be lost or stolen, they have the best chance of having it replaced or recovered.”
“We are delighted that Goldsmiths has now joined Geraldonline, Beaverbrooks, F.Hinds, and Ampalian as a MyThings partner, further strengthening our powerful retailer network, particularly in the jewellery sector,” adds David Kiashek, MyThings’ Head of Business Development, Europe. “We look forward to providing each of these partners with substantial added benefits for their customers, plus an additional revenue stream.”
MyThings’ sister site, Trace.com, provides an additional benefit to MyThings members by helping them recover their valuables should they be lost or stolen. The company’s rich network of auction houses and other dealers searches the Trace database before buying or selling goods to help ensure that they have not been reported stolen, looted, or missing. Should a stolen item appear in a search, the appropriate authorities are alerted by the searcher to facilitate recovery and return the item to the original owner.
