Nigerians can go to over 80,000 stores in the Uk, US and China, use their Visa or MasterCard or even PayPal account to make payment and have their purchases delivered to their internationally assigned address for free, says, online retailer, shoptomydoor.com. According to the retailer, Shoptomydoor receives these packages on behalf of its customers, combines and consolidates them for free, and then charges a discounted delivery cost to have it delivered to customer’s door in a few days.
According to Nduka Udeh, the CEO/President of Shoptomydoor.com, “There are 2 main ways this system save Nigerians lots of money. First, we bring to them the lowest cost of everyday items from US, UK and China allowing them to shop direct on these stores without paying a single processing fee. So unlike most other outlets that will charge a 10 percent or more processing fee, our platform allows customers to pay exactly the store charge.
“Second, the service allows customers to use their assigned warehouse to consolidate items from one or multiple online stores abroad. By consolidation, the Shoptomydoor solution cuts out the needs for customers to pay multiple delivery charges from multiple stores and hence has the potential to save individuals and business up to 80 percent on their traditional shipping cost.
He further noted that, “With shipping costs starting from as low as $14 or about N2400, the company has effectively made the shopping and shipping cost from abroad similar to what is obtainable internationally.
