The End is Nigh..

How Much Does Your Phone Really Cost?

If you own and operate a cell phone repair shop, we’re sure you’re familiar with the phrase, “You want how much to fix my phone? But I only paid $199 for it!!”

 

Many consumers are unaware the true value of a smartphone is more than the rate provided with a subsidized contract. What seems to be a great deal at first – $199 for a new phone on a 2-year contract – actually costs more over time and greatly skews the perceived value. This in turn cheapens the perceived value of repairs, which leads to consumers feeling less motivated to choose repair.

Lowering the perceived value of smartphones will continue to impact wireless repair shops, unless we educate consumers on the true value of their devices. To help repair shop owners educate repair customers, our team at eTech Parts researched devices and subsidized contracts to create the following infographic for the Repair Community.

 

Post it on Facebook, Tweet about it, and share with customers and friends to help spread the word. Let’s work together to debunk this myth and promote consumer awareness. Because $199 is just a down payment – not the full price you pay.

Scam Site Ogoparts.com – Beware!

Please take note of this online scam affecting several stateside wholesale cell phone parts suppliers. DO NOT give your personal information to any website or person claiming to be eTech Parts, unless you’re 100% sure of its legitimacy.

 

Maybe you noticed something phishy after Google-searching “etech parts” recently. Last week we discovered eTech Parts was the target of a duplicate content scraping attack in which a scam site called Ogoparts.com stole all our site content and used it as their own.

This means, when you search “etech parts” on Google, the first result says it’s eTech Parts but links to the URL makemeaninga.com. This link redirects visitors to another site, which we figured out is an online scam overseas.

Not only did the culprits steal our product images, they copied all our meta data and site content so that when the Google search bot lands on the page, it indexes our eTech content; but when a user goes to the page in a web browser, they’re redirected to the scam site.

First the link redirected to Ogoparts.com. Today the link redirects to cellphonepartsfactory.com. Please be aware both sites are untrusted and you should NOT provide either with any personal or financial information.

We’ve taken the required steps to fix this by reporting our stolen content to Google. It appears to be gradually ranking lower, and thankfully eTechParts.com has regained our top search spot. Thanks to our loyal customers for informing us of this scam!

Beware blackhat SEO tricks like these which may occur again and on other wholesale supplier sites. Never give your personal or financial info to anyone claiming to be eTech Parts, anyone claiming to be our vendor, or any site that doesn’t include a phone number and mailing address (not a PO Box). These simple checks will help you stay safe while shopping online for wholesale cell phone repair parts.

Here at eTech Parts we’ve been bulking up our inventory to support you when industry-wide shortages hit. Getting your hands on wholesale repair parts iPhone during Chinese New Year can be tricky, especially if you don’t prepare ahead of time.

We’ll do our best to stay well-stocked throughout the Chinese holiday, but we do suggest ordering a little extra inventory over the next couple weeks to prepare your shop for any possible shortages. Whether your most popular repair is fixing an iPhone 5c screen or you’ve been replacing a lot more iPhone batteries lately, you might add some extras to your next order just in case.

 

2015 is year of the goat

 

Leading up to February 19th, all factories in China will shut down and suppliers stop shipping product. After the week-long holiday is over, workers return to factories and production begins – but it takes a couple weeks for production to reach normal capacity. So while stock is usually pretty healthy throughout CNY, shortages typically occur in the weeks following CNY.

You can check out our blog from last year for more information on the history of Chinese New Year and how it affects the iPhone repair industry. 2015 is the year of the goat and it is believed that anyone born in a goat year is calm, gentle, creative, thoughtful, amicable, and honest. If you were born in a goat year, congratulations – 2015 is your year!
