Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
Holiday shopping increased dramatically this week according to overseas shipping company PackageForwardingService.com. Unable to purchase holiday gifts from major U.S. retailers like Nike and Amazon.com, more and more shoppers have turned to package forwarding services to take advantage of the fall sales. Package forwarding services allow online shoppers to receive their purchases through a U.S.-based company that then ships their package directly to their home address, wherever that may be.
“Many retailers in the U.S. refuse to ship their products to other countries” said a Package Forwarding Service representative in a recent interview. “People have been forced to pay exorbitant prices for the same products in their home countries. No one has that kind of extra money in this economy.”
In order to help consumers complete these transactions, Package Forwarding Service provides them with a United States address which they can provide online retailers when making their holiday shopping purchases. The company then ships the gifts directly to the customer in their home country, after processing them in their Miami facility.
“This service is fantastic for holiday shopping, especially right now. Shoppers can avoid crowds and long lines by shopping online, but they can also take advantage of awesome sales only happening in the U.S. If they were making the same purchase in their home country, they’d be paying two, sometimes three times the amount for the exact same product.”
Package Forwarding Service charges shipping and handling fees for customers wishing to buy items for U.S. retailers. While registration fees and per-pound shipping fees apply to most product purchases, the total amount paid by most is customers is still far less than the cost of the product alone in their home countries. Shoppers wishing to ship items to Santiago, Chile, for example, pay a $25 USD for the first kilogram and $10 USD for each kilogram thereafter.
“Our shipping costs are based on weight. Since many products like iPhones and clothing are extremely lightweight, it ends up being incredibly affordable for the customer.”
http://packageforwardingservice.com/ provides cross-border shipping services to a variety of countries from U.S. retailers like Apple, Nike, and Best Buy. This holiday season, overseas shoppers will have no restrictions on what they can or cannot buy from the United States. By shopping early, consumers can save even more money before U.S. retailers increase prices for the holiday season.
