Provide affordable delivery for the Korean online shopping demands
Smartphones are key to consider if you want to target South Korea as an online retailer or business, with over 80% of internet connections made via mobile. eCommerce is growing at some rate and is said to be predicted to double by 2021 to a value of US$31bn. We see a large number of sellers using platforms such as Amazon and eBay place an order for our courier services to help them ship for less.
No matter where you are shipping from, the chances are it will be fairly straightforward to send parcels to South Korea. An important thing to consider before shipping is that over a quarter of South Koreans track their deliveries, so that is no longer a hurdle to overcome if you book via the Parcel Monkey Global Shipping Marketplace. We also collect all the relevant Customs Documentation in our booking process to make cross-border shipping nice and simple but be sure to provide a local contact number so the recipient can be contacted by the courier if needed.
In addition to the blossoming eCommerce sector, Seoul received over 10 million international visitors in 2014, so in light of this and the fact tourism also drives the need to send packages, we have worked hard to create shipping solutions for this growing destination. South Korean's can also almost ship any which way they please due to generous trade agreements set up by the government, so importing goods from overseas is easy with agreements in place with the US, China, and the EU.
