SHOP and BOX
SHOP LIMITED EDITION BEAUTY MUST-HAVES
WITH ON-DEMAND GLOBAL SHOPPING SERVICE
The brainchild of Melbourne-based husband-and-wife team, Xin-lung Tai and Rebecca Chia, ShopandBox, is a global personal shopping service that allows you to shop like a local anywhere in the world with the help of a Personal Shopper based in the country of your choice, known affectionately as a Boxer. Since launching in 2013, ShopandBox has built a customer base of over 30,000 loyal Shoppers across 146 countries and a growing pool of 80 Boxers located in over 20 countries with orders of over 153,000 products.
ShopandBox enables Shoppers, in a fun and easy way, to buy items that are either not available in the country they are based at, or are available, but at a much higher price. Particularly popular with Shoppers seeking limited edition beauty items that never reach Australia or South East Asia, ShopandBox Boxers are experts in what͛s trending and are seasoned at beating the queues to get you your desired items.
Unlike existing freight forwarding services, ShopandBox delivers a completely personalised service from start to finish. Boxers do not mark up the cost of items and simply collect a small service fee of 10-14% of the total bill as compensation for their time and effort. A Shopper who uses ShopandBox enjoys a one-on-one shopping experience with a Boxer who shares the same interests.
Boxers are happy to shop across multiple stores and give real-time updates on product availability. They also recommend items and access limited edition items and sales that Shoppers would otherwise not be able to enjoy. To top it off, a Shopper can trust that their Boxer is going to check, photograph and repackage their items so that their international shipping is optimized. An exclusive partnership with DHL Express ensures that ShopandBox offers international door-to-door service in just 1-3 days with lowers rates than any other shipping method.
