A question asked by many of us, which company to use for package forwarding from USA/UK to your Country. First let me give you a little introduction about how package forwarding works, and why do you need it.
As you probably already know that if you do not live in USA, you probably missing the best and latest products, brands in the world. Because they do not ship to most countries.
We all know about the shipping restrictions on Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, Apple Store etc. They don’t just have package shipping restrictions but also payment restrictions; some don’t want to accept our credit cards while others simply say we accept PayPal only! Then there is the inevitable delivery restriction that so many countries believe in enforcing…
How Parcel Forwarding Services Really Work
These services simply give you an address when you sign up with them. Once you have signed up with them, you can use that shipping address at Amazon, eBay, BestBuy, stores etc to ship your purchases to your new address. Depending on the level of service they provide, the forwarding company will ship these purchases to you in your home country at your designated address.
There a a lot of package forwarding companies out there, And the question is which one you should choose.
Global Shopaholics is a new start up, and according to my experience its the best one out there.
Some of the features that distinguish it from the rest are
- No Sign up fees
- No Monthly fees
- Multiple Payment options like Paypal, Bitcoin, Credit/Debit Card, Bank Wire transfer
- TransferWise , A payment gateway no package company out there is using right now. It is the best option if you are transferring big amount, Reason is there Best Currency exchange rate and Low international transaction charges.
- Free Consolidation
- Free Pictures
- User Control On Customs Declaration Form
- USPS, ARAMEX and DHL
Package forwarding companies are mostly blacklisted by big stores like Bestbuy, Sephora, Apple
so you wont be able to buy from these stores. Global Shopaholics have a pretty good option that i prefer to use if i want some one to physically go to a Store and buy for me OR if i want something to be urgently shipped in a day. Its called “Shopper
Next question is when should you use Shopper ?
When the store does not ship to package forwarding companies or You want your order to be picked up from a store or You want it urgently.
Not only you can hire a Shopper in US, You can also hire a Shopper from UK, Australia, Germany or Even India and Pakistan too.
Package Forwarding from Australia, Package forwarding from Germany, Package forwarding UK, Package forwarding India, Package forwarding Pakistan.
Basically through one company you can go shopping in USA, UK, Australia, India, Pakistan, Germany from Anywhere in the World.
