Online Service For Kiwis To Shop In USA

A newly launched website www.BuyUSA.co.nz allows Kiwis to shop online with U.S. based retailers.

Have you ever been tempted by the excellent deals offered by U.S. based online stores. But when you investigate further you find they have a no international shipments policy. Or if they do allow international orders the shipping rates are far too expensive to make it worthwhile. Now there is a solution. BuyUSA makes online shopping with U.S. websites not only possible but truly affordable.

BuyUSA will give New Zealanders their very own street address in the USA, allowing them to shop online at websites that would not otherwise ship to New Zealand. Customers can use their BuyUSA street address as the delivery address when ordering online from U.S. websites.

BuyUSA will receive deliveries on behalf of their members at their U.S. logistics facility and enter details of the packages received into the customer’s online virtual mailbox. Using secure logon customers can view the details of the items received in their mailbox and then provide BuyUSA with the information that is required to air freight the products to New Zealand. Then they have the choice to ship their purchases individually or hold items in storage and combine later with more purchases into a single international shipment. This feature provides savings on the international air freight costs. When the shipments arrive in New Zealand BuyUSA will take care of the customs clearance formalities and deliver the shipments via courier.

Now Kiwi’s can take advantage of all the great deals from U.S. websites for computers, electronic goods, clothing, shoes, toys, books, magazines and much more. Then ship their bargains home with BuyUSA
