Here are some tips to help you ship and save:
Tip #1: Combine your packages in one box.
Shopping at multiple US online stores could lead to numerous packages. With comGateway’s OneBox service, you can reduce your shipping weight by up to 80%.
In OneBox, we remove unnecessary packaging of items of your choice and combine them in a box. Once your packages arrive in our warehouse, our team will assess them within 1 to 2 business days to check if they are eligible.
Once done, you can select the eligible items from your online account and apply for a OneBox service—one box, one shipping fee, and one way to save money while shopping simultaneously.
