Hi all -
All this plane, train and automobiling a couple of weeks ago has led to a great result. We closed a strategic partnership with Seko Worldwide, the personalized global freight transportation and logistics provider based in Chicago, USA. Seko Worldwide will play a crucial role in the USA services that underpin Bundle Box, our shipping product that will be launched on September 1st.
We’ll updated the partners section soon with pictures of Bill, Steve, Randy and Bob. We are looking forward to working with you!
Great job Marc!
Hi all –
This week I was in Belarus with our friends at iTransition to review the alpha 2 version of Bundle Box. It looks great! On the other side, we have identified 170 bugs and 70 open issues to resolve. That is a tall order for the next 38 days, but I am confident that we can make it so we have the Bundle Box ready for you by September 1st.
Now why is the Bundle Box the best way to get access to all those great deals and great products in the USA? Here are some of the reasons why Bundle Box is the better way to buy from the USA:
- You’ll have your own USA address: This allows you to buy from any website in the USA. Over 50% of the top 250 websites in the USA don’t ship abroad. For example, Target, Bestbuy, Macy, JCPenney, GAP and JCrew, none of them ship outside of the USA. With your Bundle Box you can now buy from these sites, using your own USA address.
- You’ll get great shipping rates & service: Shipping from the USA to the UK can be very expensive, especially for heavier items. With your Bundle Box you can consolidate as many purchases into one shipment to the UK, taking more advantage of the great rates that we provide. For example for a shipment of 100kg, we will charge you 60% less than the market rate.
- Import duty and VAT is included: When you book your shipment to the UK, the required import duty and VAT is included. So no additional charges, no surprise calls from a courier, no additional handling fees, and speedy customs clearance.
- You are covered: While your purchases are in your Bundle Box, they are fully covered against damage or loss. When you ship your purchases to your home, you can insure them fully against damage or loss. We offer a return insurance in case your item is not as expected or the wrong size and you need to send it back. Also for selected products, we offer an international warranty against malfunction of your purchase.
Can’t wait until it is launched? You can have a sneak preview at www.bundlebox.com and receive an early bird discount of £5.
Happy bundling, greetings from Minsk
