All your goodies delivered to your door without the expensive shipping fees!
We know that Sassy Girls are always on the look out for fabulous shopportunities, and one of the best ways to find steals and deals is through online shopping in the competitively priced US of A. That being said, those shipping costs at all the various stores can add up and seriously ruin the fun! Once you’ve browsed online and found your selected goodies, you want to guarantee they’re signed, sealed and delivered safely, with no hidden costs. Enter PacMe, a shipping consolidator based in Oregon, USA!
What is PacMe & how does it work?
First things first – PacMe are the guys who expertly pack up all your booty bought online from the USA and coordinate its safe delivery to your door in HK. Your purchased items from different stores all over the States are sent to PacMe, where they are photographed so you can be sure you’ve got everything you ordered. Log on to the easy-to-use online system and choose when your shopping gets shipped. Your items will be stored in the PacMe warehouse for free for up to 90 days, then carefully repacked to minimise the size and weight of your box (how very helpful of them!). You can choose between UPS, USPS, FedEx, and DHL at crazily discounted rates and if there is anything you’re not happy with, PacMe’s fab customer service is sure to sort you out!
Tips & Tricks to make the most out of PacMe:
- Fancy snapping up some outfits that you know no one else will have in HK? Stores like Modcloth (with over 700 independent designers) and the awesome NastyGal make it hard to choose what to buy, but with PacMe you don’t have to worry! Buy that extra jumpsuit – the more the merrier because the first couple of kilos are always more expensive. Basically, the more you buy, the more you save, so really you’re doing yourself a favour if you splash out!
- Size matters! Did you know for international shipping you can be charged by the size of the box vs. just the weight? Don’t get caught shipping all those boots and handbags that leave lots of empty and wasted space in the box. They will likely be charged by size, not weight. Try to buy things that are easily packed together and compressed (PacMe says clothes definitely fall into that category…!) Find out how PacMe’s expert packing will help you save money here.
- Some companies ship for free within the States – keep an eye out for those so you really save the big bucks. Oh, and Oregon is a sales tax-free state (where the PacMe warehouse is based), which means you avoid those pesky added charges.
