You can save a lot of money shopping online. Yet, shipping costs can substantially raise the price when shipping internationally.
Let's look at an average order made by a recent customer - Suppose you are doing some online shopping from a few stores. Two orders of clothes from Macy's, some more clothes from Nordstroms, a small electronic you found on eBay, and a Kindle from Amazon.com.
Without USApostboks (approximately), you will be paying at least $45 in shipping for each Nordstrom's orders, another $40 for Macy's, a minimum of $35 for the eBay item (despite it being small and light), and another $40 for shipping your Kindle. That comes to a total of about $205 in shipping!
With USApostboks, you can have the three stores ship your merchandise to your Virtual USApostboks address in the U.S. for cheap domestic shipping rates (sometimes even free). In this case, the domestic shipping for all of those will likely be ~$18 (Nordstrom's (free within U.S.), Macy's $10, eBay $3, Amazon $5). Then we will consolidate your packages (~$25 ($4.75 x 5)) into one single outgoing shipment to you for ~$61 postage for a total of ~$104.
Just with that order our customer saved an approximate $101 - almost half the shipping cost!
After Registering, you will Create an Order and Add a Payment method which you'd like to use to pay for the shipping and handling charges.
No shipping and handling charges will be made to your account until you "OK" your shipment to be sent. However, if you choose to create a Virtual Postboks, you will be charged just the monthly fee after creating the order, but none of the shipping and handling charges until the time of each shipment.
When you Create Your Order, you can decide what type of service you would like us to provide for you. We provide two solutions, a Virtual Postboks and a Temporary Postboks, for you to choose from depending on your shopping needs.
The table to the side provides a feature comparison between the two options, which differ primarily by the allowed number of packages per outgoing USApostboks Order and the cost per incoming package.
The Temporary Postboks provides a great deal if you'd like us to receive a single package to be forwarded to you. For instance, maybe you just want to test our service out or you only need to make a single order from a company which doesn't ship to Norway. However, due to the Temporary Postboks' limit of one package per USApostboks Order, you won't be able to take advantage of the huge savings from consolidating multiple packages which is how most of our regular customers utilize our system.
