How to use Shipme

2:19 am

This company has virtually minimize the distance of the United States by allowing Jamaicans to shop online, while they do the hard work of shipping it to Kingston, Jamaica. Globalization has brought us the ability to use our local credit cards online which is great, it has also encouraged large retailers such as Macy's, Forever21 and Target to offer international shipping which means Jamaicans like other foreign nationals can ship directly from the online retailer to your home or office. However this isn't always feasible because shipping directly from these retailer essentially means paying upwards of $30 for shipping alone. Now, that's credulous, since your automatically charged 100% of your total purchase by customs, when the item (this depends on the item) is $50 or over. With this in mind Shipme has become an essential part of shopping online for  many Jamaicans.
