FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Online Shopping USA gets personal this Black Friday

Online shopping USA, the website that brings Australians the best of American online shopping, will be home to the widest range of Black Friday deals this year.

On Black Friday, which falls on November 23rd, Online Shopping USA (http://onlineshoppingusa.com.au) will be showcasing the best deals from over 100 US stores as well as live tweeting store discounts and special offers as they become available over a 24 hour period.

Using hashtag #osublackfriday, the 24 hour tweetathon will allow other twitter users to follow along and join in the fun by adding their own favourite deals and discounts from online stores. The event page will also keep a permanent log of all the best deals from the day.

The event, to be webcast on http://onlineshoppingusa.com.au/black-friday/ will begin at 8pm Eastern Daylight time, 4am New York time. This is the traditional opening hour for stores who want to capture the most sales from early bird Black Friday shoppers.

James Harris, co-founder of Online Shopping USA said “We’re excited to be showcasing so many great deals from US retailers that will demonstrate the great value for money achievable from US online shopping. Shoppers will make savings on brands they love and can have gifts delivered in time for Christmas. We plan to make this even easier this year with our newly launched Personal Shopper service”.

Personal shopper service

The Black Friday event comes as Online Shopping USA launches its own Personal Shopper service (http://onlineshoppingusa.com.au/membership/personal-shopper/what-is-personal-shopper/) designed to make US online shopping even easier. The Personal Shopper service allows customers to place orders directly with Online Shopping USA and takes away the need to navigate the ordering and shipping process – it’s all done for you in one easy step.

“We know US online shopping is popular and growing and we aim to make it even easier for our customers with events like the Black Friday showcase and services like Personal Shopper” added James.

More information on Online Shopping USA

Online Shopping USA started in 2011 by co-founders James Harris and Eisabai Nyo to bring the best of US online shopping to savvy Australian shoppers.

Australian Entrepreneurs Launch Online Shopping USA Targeted at Local Shoppers!

A new Australian website showcasing the best of USA-based merchandise to Australian shoppers is today announcing its online portal, Online Shopping USA.

Online Shopping USA, which is now live and accessible at http://onlineshoppingusa.com.au, was set up to facilitate Australian savvy shoppers taking advantage of the strong Australian dollar allowing them to realise tremendous bargains when purchasing from American online stores.

“We are very excited to have established Online Shopping USA, and our shoppers can be assured that we’ll be delivering the very best deals from US online stores so they don’t have to go hunting around for bargains. Issues of taxes, delivery times, shipping costs and returns policies are all detailed on the site making it a one-stop shop so our shoppers will have a great online shopping experience” said James Harris, who co-founded Online Shopping USA with Ei Sabai Nyo.

A quick visit to Online Shopping USA will reveal that the site is not about the volume of products, but rather a focus is on carefully hand-picked items. “You’ll also notice that our curated site makes for a better selection of merchandise and our editors take the time and effort to make sure products are more competitively priced than Australian retailers” said James.

According to James, they continually scour hundreds of stores and thousands of products to bring shoppers examples of the best bargains from a range of shops. “These shops are hand-picked by our editors for their quality products, speedy delivery and efficient service offering bargains you might not be able to find in Australian high street stores or are much, much cheaper in the US,” added James.

Online Shopping USA targets a predominantly Australian female shopper with disposable income who is prepared to shop for a bargain and/or branded products that are not readily available in Australia. According to James, most of these shoppers aren’t necessarily first time online shoppers, but may not have experienced shopping overseas or be familiar with shipping costs or the benefits of consolidating orders to reduce delivery costs.

Online Shopping USA got started in late 2010/early 2011 by co-founders, James Harris & Ei Sabai Nyo, when realising that many Australians would like to shop online to take advantage of the strong Aussie dollar and get more variety, but weren’t sure where to start. “That’s when we decided to come in and set up Online Shopping USA,” said James, who claimed that one of the barriers that influences people’s decision to shop online is the lack of information and trust in the security of overseas online stores and “we aim to remove that barrier.”
