Have you ever felt frustrated for not being able to grab the holiday season sale? Or if you are abroad, have you been given a list from friends and family so you could shop for them? Are you tired of waiting for Amazon to start operating in Pakistan. In either case, because of PkShip, the problem has been solved and instead of black Friday sales where women end up hitting each other and breaking bones, now like the rest of the world we can receive goods at our doorstep.
PkShip, has recently launched itself and is there to make our dreams of shopping at amazing prices from Amazon or buying brands directly from the outlet,rather than from those who send locally (middle man) maintaining high profits. How this works is, that like any online shopping you register for free ,shop from your favourite outlet and get it delivered to a unique address either in the UK, US, Germany and even China. At checkout we must enter the given address and from their it will be on its way to our doorstep. One might wonder why so many counties are covered, but it is all to our advantage, as some products such nail polish and nail polish remover cannot be shipped out from the UK, but rather than being deprived of these goods we have other warehouses say in the US which enable access to the otherwise probated goods. Another reason for such global coverage is to make sure we as customers get the best price as say for example Apple is much cheaper in the US, than the rest of the world.
For shopohllics like myself PkShip is brimming with good news as instead of a flat fee, charges are according to the weight, so that frustration where the shipping cost is more than the actual good ceases to exist. Moreover the shipping is much cheaper than that of Amazon shipping directly in Pakistan and on top of it they provide 50% extra weight without any additionally charges. There’s finally someone out there who can relate to our excess baggage issues!
The payment method is very straightforward and fits in well with the conventional payment methods. There’s an option of easy paisa, a method popular amongst people at large and there is also cash on delivery. Since credit card usage is relatively low in Pakistan and even credit card holders are reluctant to use them, there’s an option to buy gift cards of our favourite brands! this not only helps those, seeking for an alternative payment method but makes life so much easier for those struggling to gift their loved ones something. Whats better than having a Sephora or an eBay gift card? All online shoppers can relate to the feeling when you get swayed by all the amazing deals online that we end up buying things we don’t need and hence think along the lines of exchange and refunds. Both these options are possible with PkShip, who are glad to ship the goods back.
I recently tumbled on this god sent system of online shopping. It has the most user-friendly website and is perhaps the first local website i’ve seen, apart from TCS, which has the option of live chat which means our concerns are sorted in a jiffy. I think it’s an excellent initiative and is promising of an enhancement of a communication surge.
The Christmas and New year sales are still on. Happy shopping!!!
