Everyone’s guilty of online window shopping. More often than not, the international shopping websites we want to purchase from don’t ship internationally or, if they do, the international shipping fees are exorbitantly high and you might as well just empty your cart anyway.
That’s where cross border e-commerce comes into the equation to solve the obstacle of international shopping. Cross border e-commerce websites let you purchase products abroad with lower shipping fees by acting as the third party courier for your overseas transaction.
So, why are we shopping online? Here are a couple of reasons why this generation is shopping-obsessed - the digital way.
Shopping online is much better than going into stalls and shops to buy goods and ask for services to be rendered because it saves a lot of time. One can easily browse through different online shops and e-commerce stores to select whatever they want within the shortest possible time.
It takes a lot of time to go into a store and try finding your way around the big supermarket; sometimes it can get worse when the store is not properly sectioned. Online, with the help of the search icon, it is very easy to find your way and get the specific goods you want within a very short time.
Also, instead of moving from one supermarket to the other, one can always open multiple tabs on the PC or mobile device and pick from the variety of available options. It is obvious that it will take a significantly shorter time to order goods and services online than to move from one supermarket to the other trying to get things.
Shopping online significantly saves one a lot of stress. When you are online, there is no fear of bumping into a crowd or having to join a long queue before you purchase whatever you want to buy. This is so different from going to the supermarket to buy things, most times, you have to get in a queue just to make payment and this can be stressful.

Some locations of some supermarkets are also in top cities where there are many people and each time someone goes out to get things to buy, the road can be very crowded and sometimes one can even be robbed if one is not careful.
Online, you will see many products of different varieties to select from when compared to offline stores. On the e-commerce stores, for instance, so many product owners have their goods displayed online with different specifications, so one can select the particular product one wants.
On the other hand, in the other supermarkets, there are limited options. Some limited to the products in that specific vicinity or community, some other ones to the goods being produced in that state, and the lucky ones get to display the goods produced within the country. In online stores, one can get products being produced from anywhere around the world with just a few clicks.
More Discounts or Perks!
This is another advantage buyers get whenever they shop online with us here on ShopGT. In a bid to attract more customers to buy their products, sellers tend to give out more discount deals and coupon codes, which buyers can use to make purchases online.
More bonuses are also available online when compared with offline stores and supermarkets. Well, this is very reasonable because there are more products of the same type online than the ones being available offline, so for a seller to get more purchases, he or she has to make more discount offers and bonuses available.
You do not usually get much of this if you are shopping offline because many of the prices are fixed and they can be sometimes on the high side.
Can Ship Overseas!
This is one of the most important reasons you should pick the online option whenever you want to make any purchase. It is much easier to make an order and set the delivery to a particular location anywhere around the world.
You can easily get a gift for a birthday, wedding, or whatsoever and have it delivered to the doorstep of the recipient with just a few clicks. This is unlike going to a supermarket to get goods you want to send to another location, this will require more time, money and the goods can even get missing in transit.

We Ship Your Orders!
We currently have different shipping options to suit your needs and budget.
Amerijet: This has the lowest fees but items are just for pick up plus you would have to arrange customs clearance with a local agent in your country. This offers air cargo services to South and Central America, and the Caribbean. With this option, you get top-notch services and competitive rates.
FedEx: Members can get as much as 70% off with this option. Our partnership with FedEx allows us to this especially for those who need to ship on a frequent basis. On top of that, FedEx also offers door-to-door service so you won’t have to stress it out with anything else. You just wait at home for your order’s delivery at your doorstep. FedEx would be able to handle local charges plus customs clearance once items are delivered.
USPS: This is the best option for lightweight and low-value items because this uses postal service for delivery. It’s inexpensive but isn’t that secure so we advise that only low-value shipments should be done with this service.
