I recently heard about parcel forwarding services being a good way to save on international shipping fees, and/or website orders that don't normally ship to Korea. It seems interesting. ^^ Has anyone used any parcel forwarding service from their home country to ship online shopping orders to korea?
Parcel forwarding services to Korea
They're great. They have 2 addresses in the East Coast (US) and 1 in China.
It's all in Korean but if you can manage gmarket, you can manage this site.
Rule of thumb...spend less than 150$US including shipping and customs will leave you alone. Except for clothing...you can order as much clothing as you want.
Banana Republic pants in Shinsaegae: $160
Four pairs of the same pants through them plus shipping: $160.
You can also give them directions about what to do with the package:
throw away original box; combine orders from multiple places; etc.
If you don't want to bother with a Korean language site or just want another option, check out Fishisfast (Disclosure: I work here).
We try to make the service really easy to use, you can get pictures of all of your packages to make sure nothing is damaged, and we have a number of shipping options like FedEx, DHL, and USPS as well as FastBox Express Korea, our in-house option that is faster and cheaper than almost anything else.
I live in Seoul and get shipments myself regularly. I usually order several things off of Amazon or wherever and when they all arrive at the Fishisfast warehouse, I ship them all together in one box to save on shipping.
if you want to order directly in France cosmetic cream like : La Roche Posay, Nuxe, Caudalie, Avene, Clarins, l’Occitane, Bioderma, Biotherm, Uriage, Yves Rocher, Nocibe, Daniel Jouvance, Neutrogena, use this parcels forwarding : ISHIP4YOU.
Order directly on french websites or ask them to order for you, they will receive your package and ship to you directly in Korea;
If you want more infos, contact them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
I recommend trying viabox. Their staff are very friendly and professional (they'll reply to your queries in under 12 hours) and they are cheaper than any other freight forwarder. Hope this helps.
