From fashion to gadgets, toys to tech, homewares to accessories and more, there’s a whole world of online shopping at our fingertips.
Of course, there’s the brands we can’t buy in Australia we hanker for. And there’s often amazing savings on the brands we can already buy – if only we could find a way to get them to our doorstep?
Shop & Ship is the answer with local addresses in 18 countries meaning, if you want it – they can ship it to you!
How it works…
Here’s 9 awesome products we love that you can explore buying cheaper overseas…
1. Children’s Designer Fashion
If you like to dress your child like a mini-fashionista you’ll know there’s lots of big-name labels that currently don’t ship to Australia. The advantage to buying your fashion from Europe or the States is that with the seasons the opposite of our own you can shop the sales to great success. Their winter clearance is our new winter wardrobe! Yes please.
2. Women’s High End & Brand Name Make-Up
All the big make-up brands can be purchased at considerable savings overseas. Tip: There’s also a way to shop across brands if you like a Chanel lipstick and a Lancôme foundation – find a department store that stocks all your brands and then use Shop & Ship to have them delivered to your door! This way you don’t have to use independent retailers for each item and you can skirt around some of the more sophisticated geographic websites which will automatically re-direct you to the Australian home of the brand.
3. American Girl Dolls (And Stacks of Other Toys!)
If you’ve got an American Girl Doll fan in your house you’ll know the cult-like status of these toys! Shopping for your American Girl Doll using Shop & Ship will mean you’re not limited to any specific retailer (and they are sold in ToysRUs since 2016!) This way you’re not just open to a greater range but to also compare prices. Winning.
4. Women’s Designer Fashion & Handbags
If you love your brand name labels and want to shop them direct from Europe or the USA without the sting of the Aussie price tag, Shop & Ship is your new bestie. From Prada to Versace, if you’ll find it on the catwalk you can find it cheaper overseas. Research, research and then Shop & Ship.
5. Cool American Brands
There’s staple American brands that are cheap as chips in the States but expensive here. Think GAP, American Apparel, Victoria’s Secret and Ralph Lauren. You choose them and then with the help of Shop & Ship to get them to your door, these wardrobe basics and classic pieces can be hung in yours, dads or the kids wardrobe quicker than you can say ‘I’ll take it all!’
