Streamlining Package Contents

Shoe Boxes: To Keep or Not to Keep

For those ordering shoes, the accompanying shoe boxes can consume a significant amount of space. Premium members can optimize their accounts by instructing us to remove these boxes, facilitating more efficient consolidation.

Skip the Original and Gift Boxes

Original boxes and gift boxes tend to be larger, contributing to both the weight and size of your shipment. Allow us to consolidate your items into a more compact package, saving you both space and shipping costs.

Request Invoices and Utilize Premium Member Benefits

Avoiding Delays and Additional Fees

To prevent any delays or unexpected duties and taxes, make sure retailers include invoices or receipts for your purchased items. This simple step can go a long way in ensuring a smooth shipping process.

Premium Membership Perks

For our Premium members, the benefits go beyond consolidation. Take full advantage of your upgraded membership by adding special instructions such as "remove additional packing" or "insert small items into larger ones." This strategic move conserves space and weight, ultimately maximizing your savings.
