A global survey by US eCommerce provider Pitney Bowes found that high shipping costs was the number one reason that stopped shoppers buying products online. Finally, a solution is at hand.
Introducing Shipster, a new subscription service that lets you shop freely (literally) from over 40 online retailers. With the first two months free, then $6.95 a month ongoing, you can enjoy free shipping on eligible purchases* if you live in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney or Adelaide metro areas.
Why do I need Shipster?
Very often, when you’re shopping online, the price of the item you’re looking to buy isn’t a true indicator of how much you’ll end up paying. In many cases, the cost of getting your new purchases from the warehouse and delivered to you is added when you get to the online checkout.
Faced with the choice of paying an additional cost for shipping or buying more products to save on delivery costs, suddenly that online bargain might not look so great. And if you buy online fairly often, those extra costs can really add up over the course of the year. This is where Shipster comes in.
How does Shipster work?
Shipster is currently available to residents of metropolitan Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and Brisbane. So if you live in those areas, just head on over here to enter your postcode. You’ll be asked to sign in to your MyPost account (or create a new one if you don’t already have one). Then, simply follow the prompts to join up and pay for your Shipster membership.
As soon as you sign up, your Shipster account is ready to start using on eligible orders with a total spend of $25 or more and where shipping costs are less than $20.
Jump on board to take advantage of Shipster’s free two month trial. Your subscription will then renew at $6.95 each month until you choose to cancel.
Anytime you shop online from participating retailers, just be sure to use the same email address you used to join Shipster with. There’s no need to include any kind of code with your order, you’ll automatically receive free shipping on eligible purchases* because of your connected email. It really is that easy.
What does my Shipster membership give me?
Free shipping on eligible purchases* (of course) from dozens of the best-loved online stores in a whole range of different categories from fashion to pet supplies. The more you tend to shop online, you’ll have opportunities to save more money. But that’s just the start.
Sign up to Shipster now and you’ll also get free delivery on one eligible Deliveroo order* per month until the end of December 2017.
