The greatest day of the year for shopping in USA is coming in a few days’ time. If you had already know, good for you. If you haven’t, let me share with you what is it ….. *drum roll*
🚀BLACK FRIDAY SALES!🚀
This year’s Black Friday sales fall on the 24 November this year. Black friday sales is the biggest annual sales in USA, just like our Singapore’s Great Singapore Sales. What’s more attractive is that as we know USA is well-known for its branded stuffs like Coach, Kate spade, Nike, Adidas etc, therefore you can expect highly slashed price on this day for all your favourite USA brands. Here are some of the top shopping sites we know that are a hit among online shoppers!
Worry that 1 day is not enough to finish shopping all your favourite brands and grab the best deals? Good news for you, most merchants will starts their Black Friday sales a few days earlier, which means you have more time to shop!
However, nothing comes easy especially when it’s once every year event and with many massively discounted items. But don’t worry, ezbuy is here to help! Let us look at some issues you might be facing if you were to buy directly from the merchants
Drawback of shopping online on USA websites
❌High international shipping fee: With some USA brands trying to test overseas market, these brands do provide international shipping. However, as the demand isn’t high, international shipping fee can cost you a bomb if you are shipping directly from the merchant. Knowing us online shoppers, we are more than likely to be shopping from more than 1 USA site this Black Friday.
Hence, international shipping fee will definitely be charged separately based on their international shipping rate. You will possibly end up paying more on the shipping fee than your product fee.
❌Credit card restrictions: Feeling fed-up when you have tried all your credit cards from 7 different banks yet still seeing the same error message? Fear not, it’s not that you have maxed your card limit. This is simply just how some USA merchants restrict overseas buyers from buying internationally.
❌Restricted USA merchants: Having your website kept redirecting you to .sg instead of .com? Yes, your internet is indeed smart, redirecting you to a .sg site based on your geographical location. But, you can be smarter with ezbuy! Read on to find out how you can outsmart your desktop!
