There are many ways to get more value while you shop online from overseas websites! Aside from using Buyandship for all your international shipping needs, you can also use cashback and coupon platforms whenever you shop. Check out the list we collated enclosing a few tips and options on how to save more money when online shopping abroad!
#1 Use Cashback Services
Using cashback services can help you earn back some money you spent on shopping. It’s not an instant saving as most cashback platforms require a bit of time to track and verify your transaction with their e-commerce partners. The cashback rate is dependent on the website you’re shopping from. Even different cashback platforms have different rates for the same website, so be sure to compare which offers the best percentage!
Cashback sites like ShopBack are very popular among online shoppers in the Philippines, whether it is for local or international e-commerce websites.
If you’d like to earn cashback in US Dollars, there’s also Rakuten (formerly known as Ebates)! To make life a little easier, don’t forget to download the ShopBack and Rakuten cashback Google Chrome extension. The extensions will immediately notify you which shopping sites have cashback or promos.
Another way to make sure you’re getting the best value is to look for coupons or discount codes.
“I don’t want to get more savings when I shop online,” said no one ever.
Sometimes shopping sites can be a little sneaky and not advertise or display any promo codes. Check out couponing websites like Retailmenot, Rakuten, and Finder.com for daily updates on promo codes to popular shopping sites! It’s not just for the US, Finder.com has localized websites for different countries as well!
#3 Automatically find Coupon/ Deals Through Honey
You can also use Google Chrome extensions like Honey to “automate” the promo code search. Download the extension and let it do its magic while you shop on eligible websites! It cuts downtime to search for deals, and focuses on what’s important: getting you the best deal at the click of a button!
#4 Have Your Items From Abroad Shipped Via Buyandship
We have created a solution for you with Buyandship to buy online products abroad! We were established in 2014 and concentrated on developing our 11 warehouse locations all over the world for your shopping needs. We have established a network of warehouses in U.S., U.K., Japan, South Korea, Australia, Indonesia, Italy, Thailand, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. So now all you have to do is start an account with us, get your warehouse addresses, and begin shopping online. We also made it so efficient that the cost you are paying is the lowest shipping fee in the Philippines and is based on a flat rate of Php 350, wherever the location is, in all of our warehouses. That’s right, the same fee for ALL locations. Moreover, you can save more money by consolidating your parcels from different warehouses into 1 shipment.
See a pricing calculator and parcel restrictions below. No bulk shipments 10 units max per shipment.
Please note that if the total value of your shipments is above Php 10k there will be PH customs clearance fees, separate from our shipping fee that is paid to a local courier, either COD or bank transfer, and sent to your home. If Php 10k or below, then you will only pay our shipping fee 🙂
To enjoy no duty and tax, you need to checkout from HK under Php 10k total value of shipments regardless of how many shipments, then TRACK until it passes PH customs, then send the next batch.
It’s also worth noting that each household member’s name can create their own account to enjoy each Php 10k under
