Shipito.com caught my attention via a facebook ad, and they seem to be a promising service as long as I can get more people to confirm they’ve used it and recommend it. Their premise is simple.
A lot of US retailers abroad do not ship products internationally, leaving the people outside to look for local resellers for those products. The problem is that most popular products are resold at 30-50% premium locally, making it even more inaccessible to purchase.
Shipito.com will let you buy products from US Retailers and have them ship it to their warehouse in California. From there, shipito will ship you the product in whatever country you’re in, using "Super low USPS and FedEx rates" – specifically at $8.50 / package or $50 / year.
The premise of the business sounds interesting, but I wouldnt use it unless I know someone else who has and who can recommend the service… and unfortunately the site doesnt have too many testimonials from known customers. I think the pricing can be achieved – since they’re storing all products first they would be able to do large bulk shipments and save from there. But I still need to know they’re the real thing and what people have said about their customer service before trying it out myself.
