Each year in the US a shopping festival equivalent to India's Diwali sales springs to life. Its called Black Friday. An odd name for what news media for decades have called the busiest shopping day of the year. In recent years the shopping event has morphed into an even larger event that has enveloped the days following friday, including Monday which is now referred to as Cyber Monday.
What does this mean to the Indian consumer? Big Deals! If you haven't already noticed, then its time you do. Deals found at Flipkart or Snapdeal fall short of the deals found throughout the US retail market, and to splendor to this already mind-blowing statement, you'll find the assortment of deals is not relagated to a mere few merchants. No, deals are everywhere.
From the leaders in pet supply, to farm supply, to auto supply, to fashion, tech, home decor, wedding, sporting, everything is up for grabs and many of the retailers offer such exclusive deals that frenzied chaos emerges within stores. It is shopping pandamonium, but it is all very good for the Indian consumer.
The question you may be asking is, how does an Indian shopping from his or her home in India shop USA retailers? The answer is simple. You need a package forwarder.
What is a package forwarder? Package forwarders or parcel forwarding services provide you with an address in the US where you can get the product shipped and they will forward it to your address in most other countries. This is a huge advantage to the international shopper. Indian shoppers can easily shop from the comfort of your home. Items are delivered to your US address in a secure warehouse, then your purchased items are forwarded directly to your doorstep.
The international shippping rates with a package forwarder are significantly discounted from what you would pay with traditional couriers like; DHL, UPS, FEDEX, TNT. A distinct advantage Package forwarders have over traditional couriers is that package forwarders like American eBox provide you with your unique USA address, as well as free storage for a period of time, mail forwarding, virtual office & warehouse, personal shopping assistant, assisted purchasing, among other features. You will still have to pay shipping charges and customs duties but if you factor in the big discount you're getting on the product, this will not seem excessive.
With your own US Address you can order products from almost any online store in the United States. One benefit to consider is that you can get US Products that are difficult to find in your India or from US Stores that won’t ship internationally. Another benefit, exclusively available with American eBox is the VIP Concierge Shopping Assistant. This service allows you to shop Miami's heralded Fashion District from the confort of your home. Miami's Fashion District offers exclusive shopping found no where else on Earth. Brands like Cartier, Givenchy, Hublot, and Longchamp offer an unparalleled shopping experience only available through American eBox.
