A Stockport tech firm has become the first business in the world to achieve 10 million reviews on eBay.

Since being founded in a garage 12 years ago, musicMagpie has moved from recycling CDs and DVDs to consumer technology such as smartphones, tablets, wearables and game consoles.

Its revenue is set to exceed £130m this year and has also established a US business, Decluttr, based in Atlanta, Georgia.

It moved to a new HQ at the Stockport Exchange office development (pictured) two years ago.

Co-founder and CEO Steve Oliver said the company was "immensely proud" to notch up the landmark on eBay.

He said: "We have customers from as far afield as Australia and the Falkland Islands who have chosen to give us positive feedback, and that means a great deal to us and is testament to breadth of the customer base that selling on eBay allows us to access.

"We wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for the support of our eBay selling team, and the in-house team here in Stockport, who work obsessively to ensure we are providing the best service to our customers here in the UK and globally and we are extremely grateful to both our colleagues and trading partners at eBay for making this happen”

Murray Lambell, eBay UK Vice President of Trading, said: “We are incredibly proud to see musicMagpie surpass ten million global reviews. It’s a huge achievement and a fitting testament to their commitment to delivering exceptional customer service.”

The brand is one of a select few to have also achieved 100,000 reviews on Trustpilot.
