The best way to buy tech in the U.S.
Technology items are one of the top categories for international customers using parcel forwarders. The selection and range of stores offering tech-gear in the United States means that buyers can often buy items not available in their home country or they can buy tech items for less than they may cost at home even when shipping is calculated in.
Some e-commerce companies will ship internationally and others will not. Even companies that will ship to Australia, Saudi Arabia or the U.K. will have restrictions on certain brands they can sell or the international shipping costs will be too high. By using a parcel forwarder an international customer can shop a range of e-commerce stores for the best price and have all their items consolidated into one package for international shipping. This package consolidation feature is not something e-commerce companies can offer international shoppers.
Laptops, Tablets and Smartphones
International customers often buy laptops and smartphones in the U.S.. In addition to the expected shiptments Macbook, iPads, iPhones we ship a large number of gaming laptops and gaming accessories. When customers are buying higher end items like this our U.S. sales tax free location in New Hampshire offers an advantage that many other package forwarders cannot match.
Some of our favorite online stores for buying laptops and tablets include:
- Apple- The Apple store sells the full selection of MacBook, iPad, and IPhones. We are particularly fond of their outlet section where you can often find refurbished equipment at a a discount. Sometimes Apple will block parcel forwarders but we do have orders arriving frequently from the Apple store. If they do block your order you can always use Stackry's personal shopping service
- Microsoft store- The Microsoft online store has frequent sales on everything ranging from laptops to Xbox games. If you are looking for a Windows laptop, surface 3 tablet or Xbox game the Microsoft store should be the first place you look.
