Shipllama makes cross-border shopping as easy and enjoyable as relaxing in the pool on a hot summer day.
A couple weeks ago, I told you guys about an amazing new shipping service called, Shipllama, which has totally changed the game in online shopping for Canadians. With their E-Forwarding service, you can shop at all of your favorite U.S. retailers – even the ones that don’t offer shipping to Canada – and have your purchases mailed to any Canadian address. Taxes and duties included, so you get one total shipping price. No surprises.
I recently gave Shipllama’s E-Forwarding service a try, when I ordered a pair of board shorts from Saturdays Surf NYC. They did offer shipping to Canada, but for a steep price of $45, which didn’t include the taxes and duties (~$20) either. To recap from my last post, the cost of shipping my purchase through Shipllama was $12.00, for a grand total of $43.82, including taxes and duties. That versus $65+ if I had shipped directly to Canada.
At the end of my last post, I had just finished placing my Shipllama order and was awaiting the arrival of my package. Not long after, my new board shorts arrived at my door and I was in the pool, swimming in them (pictured above). Pretty quickly, I might add, considering that I selected standard shipping! It took 8 business days total, which may sound like a lot, but that did include customs processing time (which unfortunately can’t be avoided). My assumption is that it was likely the same, if not quicker than if I had chosen the option to ship the package directly to Canada. And of course, we can’t forget the savings of over $20 on the shipping.
Overall, using Shipllama was very easy and efficient. Their E-Forwarding service takes out all the surprise costs of online shopping and cross-border shipping, with undeniable savings.
If you live in Canada and love to shop online, I highly recommend you give Shipllama’s E-Forwarding service a try. And before you check out, use code “ALEX10” to get 10% off on E-Forwarding! Happy Shopping!
