Have you ever needed to ship a purchased item across-the-world? If you have, you may have noticed that there is not one company that typically provides exactly what is needed for an across-the-world delivery.
However, there are many individuals across-the-world who could help just because they live in the right country. But how would you reach those people to assist in delivering your purchased item?
That’s the idea behind Parcl.com, a community-based shipping website introducing the concept of worldwide crowdshopping.
Parcl realized that anything could be delivered anywhere if only there were a website connecting shoppers with people capable of delivering their purchases.
Parcl makes it possible for anyone to shop in online, or in bricks and mortar stores, in any country. Parcl connects “forwarders” -- people, who earn money for re-shipping purchased items -- and “shoppers” -- those in need of delivery assistance, usually living outside of major delivery areas.
Parcl is a secure and trusted community of verified shoppers with a rating-based feedback system.
Parcl provides an automated order processing system with private and public orders for you to bid on.
Parcl is currently in an open beta phase, so for now all individuals are welcome to use Parcl with no extra fees whatsoever! Be sure to check it out!
