Parcl is a free peer to peer service , that helps pair up “shoppers” in need of assistance with purchasing in overseas shops with “forwarders” who are able to buy and ship products. The innovative service provides an online platform where shoppers can select package forwarders, who can assist with placing the order, shipping it to the shopper’s country and provide a range of other related services. On the other side of the service, anyone can register at Parcl as a forwarder and offer shipping services they are able to fulfill. All Parcl users’ (both shoppers and forwarders) identities are verified to prevent fraud and ensure a safe and secure experience for all.
The key features of Parcl are:
- It’s free (neither shoppers, nor forwarders need to pay to register and operate there)
- It’s beneficial both for shoppers, who can enjoy having access to all the best deals and discounts in the shops all over the world, and forwarders, who get access to requests database and can make money on shipping and additional services;
- It’s very simple and straightforward shopper posts a request, forwarder makes an offer, they negotiate the terms if needed, sign a deal and proceed with the delivery all within one service (no need to check million messages and dive into endless and boring emailing)
- It’s secure we have an SSL certificate installed, all the transactions are processed via PayPal, ensuring secure and fast payments (and refunds if necessary);
- It is synchronised with the package tracking data, so when the package arrives to destination shopper gets notified of it;
- It’s reliable both shoppers and forwarders have ratings based on the number of their successful deals and level of profile completion;
- It is designed by people for people. We know how painful the interaction with
- any kind of service might be, so we tried to make our service as convenient and user friendly as possible.
In other words, using Parcl is like having a friend or a relative abroad , who can help with
purchase and delivery. Parcl has a number of advantages compared to the existing forwarding services:
- Every package is processed individually, forwarders don’t ship in bulk, which makes the risk of sending packages to wrong addresses close to zero.
- Shoppers can communicate with forwarders using the integrated chat, which helps them stay well informed of what’s going on with the delivery.
- Forwarders usually have a limited number of orders processed, which allows them monitor every delivery and help solve any issues with stores or postal services in the shortest time.
Whether you desperately need something from an overseas store, found a great deal which makes international purchase cheaper than buying things in your home country, or you are an expat who misses stuff from motherland don’t hesitate to join Parcl
