ParcelFlow’s Personal Shopper Program
One of the great things about the Internet is that you aren’t just limited to buying products from retailers in your home country; you can buy them from retailers all over the world! Unless of course, websites decide to impose restrictions, which unfortunately happens more than you think. Yes, many UK websites actually don’t let you purchase items unless you have a UK debit or credit card. This can be very problematic for those living in non-UK countries that want to shop online with UK retailers.
We can make purchases from UK retailers’ websites on your behalf.
So what’s the solution?
Well, you could look for the same products on other websites; however the reason many people choose UK retailers is because they offer high quality products at cost effective prices. So if that’s not an option for you, then you need to find a way of obtaining a UK debit card.
The good news is that ParcelFlow has the perfect solution in the form of its Personal Shopper Program. With Personal Shopper, you simply let us know what you need to purchase and we’ll organise it on your behalf!
How does ParcelFlow’s Personal Shopper Program work?
If you are non-UK resident looking to make a purchase from a UK website but don’t have a UK debit or credit card, we can make the transaction for you. All you need to do is let us know what you need to buy and from where from, provide us with the payment and then we’ll pay for your item, before having it shipped to you.
What are the benefits of using our Personal Shopper Program?
The most obvious benefit is that it allows you to buy products from UK retailers that you wouldn’t have otherwise been able to. Another benefit is that you will be able to benefit from lower shipping costs. As a ParcelFlow customer, we will provide you with a UK address that you can have your parcels shipped to, so you will only have to pay UK delivery fees, as opposed to expensive international shipping. Some retailers even offer free delivery in the UK, allowing you to make even bigger cost savings.
Once we’ve ordered your items, they will be shipped to our depot. From there, we will correspond with you, to find out which of our trusted courier services you’d like to use. Seeing as we use delivery companies every day to ship out high volumes, we benefit from bulk discounts, which we pass onto you, our customer. We can also offer you the opportunity to purchase additional insurance for your items, should you wish to.
After selecting a courier service, we’ll forward your parcels to you and ensure they arrive safely at your door!
What sort of items can you purchase?
We are happy to purchase all sorts of items on your behalf, providing they are legal. Common items that we have purchased for customers using our Personal Shopper Program include rail tickets, bicycle parts, clothing, baby products and much, much more.
