Most of us don’t even know how many wonderful, useful, beautiful, and simply cool products can be found in foreign stores. Remember the last time you bought something from another country? When was it? A month ago? Half a year ago? Or maybe never? If you have never considered shopping in the UK, it’s the right time to browse some amazing UK stores.

UK stores offer a huge range of reasonably priced products and exclusive items, such as limited edition or archived perfumes, organic health and beauty products, designer jewelry, watches, home decor items, consumer electronics, and a lot more. The majority of UK stores accept the most popular and convenient payment methods such as PayPal and bank cards. However, some stores display their products online, but do not sell them on the web, offering in-store shopping only. Luckily, there is a way to shop UK stores in person from any country in the world and get the items shipped internationally.  

UK store doesn't ship internationally?

Unlike many American retailers, quite a lot of UK stores offer international shipping. Some UK shops charge 8 GBP for worldwide shipping (around 11 USD, which is pretty fair), whereas others will ship your order from the UK to your country for 25 GBP (around 33 USD) or more. If you feel that a store’s delivery cost is too high or no international shipping from the UK is available, you can arrange delivery from the UK on your own through the UK package forwarding service.

To shop at a UK online store you will need a shipping address in the UK and a verified package forwarder who will receive your buys and ship them to you. At Parcl you can find a UK package forwarder to offer you their UK address. Having a UK shopping address allows you to shop at any UK store. Simply use your forwarder’s address as your UK delivery address at checkout.

Your personal UK shipping forwarder will receive, carefully handle and ship your buys to your address.
