KIDS’ GUIDE2017

Not only can prices on Orchard Road

be highly marked up for many of our

favourite brands, a fair number of these

brands aren’t stocked here at all! When

it comes to variety and value, many of

us head to US online stores to scout

the best deals instead; but that can

become a bugbear too, with many sites

charging exorbitant shipping costs, or

not shipping here at all.

To help save money and access

brands, more and more savvy shoppers

are turning to shipping consolidators

like PacMe. Here’s how it can work in

your favour:

#1

Register with PacMe

#2

Shop, shop, shop!

Get shopping at your favourite US-

based sites, and simply enter your

PacMe address at the checkout to have

the items sent to their warehouse; once

the items arrive, the team logs each of

your incoming packages, scans your

invoices and uploads photos of each

the items; they then store them free of

charge for up to 90 days.

#3

Consolidate and

request shipping

Once you’ve requested that you’d

like your order shipped out to you,

PacMe’s packers get to work and

expertly repack your order into a

strong double-walled box. Wasted

space means money, and consolidating

your items can often cut your overall

shipping bill by half.
