Next In Our Shopping Tips Series: Int'l Shipping!


After Lauren covered the Shop It To Me retailers with the most helpful return policies, we also wanted to share some tips on international orders!
International shipping tends to run on the expensive side (around $30-50) so be sure to stock up when ordering overseas, and check your country’s customs policy to avoid being hit with unexpected charges.
Some of our favorite boutiques ship worldwide, including Tobi, Shopbop, Yoox, Bluefly, Net-a-Porter, and Pink Mascara.

Now for our neighbors to the North, all the above e-stores, as well as J.Crew and Urban Outfitters, ship to Canada, usually for fees less than the international flat rate. J.Crew also ships to Japan and Urban Outfitters ships to the U.K as well.

Some people choose to have items shipped to their friends in the U.S., and have them pay for the overseas shipping which can often be less expensive than paying direct from the retailer…just another thought!

One last tip: check out these size conversion tools (Fashion 411 and Online Conversion) to make sure you’re getting the right size. International returns aren’t the easiest!
