International customers wanting to buy their favorite U.S. brands, but don’t have a U.S. address now have a place to go to compare the best international shipping providers that allow customers to shop from their favorite U.S. based online retailers such as Amazon.com, Nike and Target by setting up a virtual U.S-based mailbox. Packageforwardingservice.com is a site that is dedicated to helping customers and businesses save money by comparing various U.S. shopping facilitators that are designed to enable international customers throughout the world to shop their favorite U.S e-tailers from the comfort of their own home even if the company doesn’t ship internationally.
International customers looking to save money on shipping can go to packageforwardingservice.com and conveniently compare the rates and services of providers all in one place without having to visit each organization’s website. For example, a quick scan of the website will show prospective shoppers the differences in rates and services between major providers such as PuntoMio and Skybox along with a host of other U.S. shopping facilitators so they can make an educated decision on what company is best for them.
The site also features informational articles with tips on how to use a U.S. shopping facilitator, tax implications on internet purchases and even explains the benefits of package forwarding services for merchants that want to sell to an international customer base without having to deal with all the confusing international shipping and customs regulations.
Many people in the United States have never heard about U.S. shopping facilitators because people living stateside can freely shop at any online retailer without hassle. But international customers are often shut out from purchasing their favorite items because many major U.S. retailers will not ship to international addresses. The solution: sign up with a package forwarding provider. Here’s how it works:
International customers sign up with a package forwarding provider that then gives the shopper a unique U.S-based address (typically the facilitator’s U.S. shipping facility). The customer then shops their favorite U.S. retailer inputs their new U.S. address at checkout. The package is then sent to the shopping facilitator’s facility, is repackaged to save on shipping costs, and is then shipped to the shopper’s international address. It’s that easy. The customer can now shop at any online store, and typically save money because the shopping facilitator can often ship internationally at lower rates than the retail company.
There are a handful of service providers out there making it confusing to choose the best one, but now that PackageForwardingService is online, customers can now easily choose the provider that’s best for them by comparing rates and services all in one convenient location.
