We’ve all heard how fantastic outlet shopping in the US can be, and now you can get your fix of of designer frocks, shoes, bags and accessories by the likes of BCBG Max Azria, Diane von Furstenberg, DKNY, Michael Kors and Zac Posen, and benefit from reduced shipping rates from PacMe.
How it works
Signing up at PacMe.com is free, easy and takes just a few minutes. Shortly after logging in, you’ll receive a dedicated US mailbox number and can start shopping. (You can shop tax-free, too, as PacMe is located in Oregon!) Before buying your item, simply enter your allocated address in the shipping field at the checkout, and you’ll be good to go.
Shop till you drop
Psst! The shopping gurus at PacMe have let slip a little secret: the first few kilograms of any shipment are always the most expensive, which means that the more you shop, the more you save. Even if your shipments arrive at different times, PacMe will store everything safely and securely until all your purchases arrive – and they even take photos of each item so you can be sure your order was received in tiptop shape before they ship it out to you.
Once all your items are in, the PacMe team works on consolidating and repacking your order. They know that shipping companies charge according to the size and dimensions of a package and not according to its actual weight; so they repack your order to ensure that you aren’t shipping empty space, thereby saving you money. What’s more, the handy PacMe website is available 24/7 to manage your packages – just let them know when you’re ready to ship, and they’ll handle the rest.
PacMe’s deep shipping discounts with major shipping companies give them a leg-up from the rest. It means that you’re in control and can choose your preferred shipment company, price and timing.
