Global Shopping Made Easy

Whether you’re a natural health nut, a fan of French haute-couture or simply in love with anything Italian, you can stock up on top-notch goods with help from a personal shopper working from your chosen international address. Yes, personal shoppers in foreign lands now purchase and send stuff back to your own cozy U.S. home. Before you send your global shopping pal and Parcel out on a wild ride, do keep in mind the international hazards that can come with an international address.

Avoiding the Risks of International Shopping and Parcel

Amazon Rainforest

It may be tough to ferret our something like a dress boutique in the heart of the rainforest region, but you could score big with superfoods like acai berries or camu camu. In addition to the risk of being captured and tattooed, shopping in the rainforest comes with the chance of getting items snagged on tree limbs or encountering a healthy lineup of jaguars and poison-dart frogs. Safety note: Don’t ask your shopper to go out to buy raw meat.

Paris, France

With wine sold everywhere, even in the McDonald’s, Paris may be able to tweak its nickname from the City of Light to the City of Lightheadedness. Global shopping with a buzz in Paris can result in the purchase of extremely odd items, thanks to the eclectic array of Paris flea markets that sell everything from ceramic cicadas to stuffed wild boars’ heads. Helpful hint: Suggest your shopper visit the wine bars and cafés after the shopping rather than before.

Milan, Italy

With names like Gucci, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace hailing from Italy and Milan serving as one of the top fashion centers of the world, your personal shopper can face the risk of being overwhelmed with choices. Being overrun by desserts is another potential hazard, especially when options include things like gelato, tiramisu and ricotta cheesecake.

Dodging the hazards while delivering the goods is the overall goal of personal shoppers everywhere, and the shoppers at OutpostSVC have extensive experience with both.
