BRUSSELS, May 11 /PRNewswire/ --
- International e-Commerce Service Lets People Import Goods From the US as Easily as Buying From Local Web Site and Have Them Delivered to Their Door
Borderlinx, the cross-border e-commerce solution provider, has joined forces with the Danish postal service, Post Danmark, to make it easy and cost-effective for people all over Denmark to buy goods easily and cost-effectively from the US. Borderlinx will handle receipt of goods in the US and will organise for them to be shipped to Denmark - including dealing with customs and import issues. Post Danmark will either deliver the goods to the customer's door, or give them the flexibility to collect them from their local post office if it's more convenient.
Many US web sites will not accept orders for goods from customers who do not have a US address - but Borderlinx solves this problem. When people join Borderlinx via the Post Danmark web site, they receive a US shipping address that they can use to order directly from US web sites, enabling them to shop from any site they wish, including auction sites such as eBay. Shoppers can take advantage of the beneficial Krone/Dollar exchange rate to make savings and can source desirable items such as electronic goods long before they are available in Scandinavia.
The new service removes the unpredictability traditionally associated with importing from the US, as it enables shoppers to calculate a 'fully landed cost' for their goods, including the shipping from the US to Denmark; import duty and sales tax. In addition to offering highly competitive shipping costs, Borderlinx also promotes global brand names such as Sony, Lego and eBags to offer additional discounts to its members.
David Spottiswood, Chief Executive of Borderlinx explained, This new service is opening up a whole new world of shopping, particularly for people in more remote areas of Denmark who can't easily get to big city stores. Borderlinx is the only international shopping and shipping solution that lets consumers calculate a fully-landed cost of their goods before they buy - including tax and duties. We also give online shoppers the flexibility to consolidate several purchases into a single shipment, saving them money and making receiving their goods even more convenient.
Carsten Dalbo Pederson, Deputy Executive at Post Danmark added, We are delighted to be working with Borderlinx and this partnership is another step in building on our already high standards of service to customer. We know that our customers want to be able to buy goods from all over the world, but that they want to have them delivered by an organisation that they know and trust and to have the flexibility to collect them from a convenient local post office if they can't take delivery at home during the day.
Borderlinx was founded in 2006 and has revolutionised the way people buy and sell across borders. The service is used by consumers and businesses to buy all sorts of products and merchandise from the USA at highly competitive prices and, for electronics in particular, often before the goods are available elsewhere in the world. Many US e-commerce sites will not ship goods to overseas addresses, so Borderlinx provides a US shipping address that lets people order goods from the US from all over the globe. Borderlinx provides:
- A US shipping address that lets consumers shop from almost any US website using their own US Borderlinx delivery address. - Access to goods at US prices, along with special deals and extra savings for Borderlinx members - A proprietary shipping, tax and duty calculator that lets consumers see the full cost of importing goods before they buy - Highly competitive shipping rates - The ability to consolidate multiple goods into one shipment to save on shipping costs - International delivery by DHL to the customer's home country - The flexibility to choose when goods are delivered
