Online shopping cartToday, the Internet is the international crossroads of shopping, and continues to open up opportunities not only for window shopping the neighborhood, but the entire planet.

While the U.S. remains a top destination for international shopaholics, more Americans are getting into the habit of seeing what's on sale "over there" for unique gifts.

Shop the world

Especially during the holiday season, more options become available for sending that special something across the miles — to family members, friends or business associates. Think of hand-painted ceramics from Florence, a gourmet gift basket from Provence, or find that ideal kitchen gadget when browsing a UK department store.

While online prices will save you travel costs of worldwide shopping spree, international shipping isn't cheap. But consumers can look forward to international delivery charges becoming more affordable as more online retailers profit from an ever-widening worldwide clientele.

Saving money on international orders

Shopping experts suggest that you look over carefully the shipping policies of each retailer you visit. Most reputable online shops will offer up-front shipping costs, so there are no hidden fees. The bigger stores will even enable international customers to shop in their preferred currency, and feature cross-border tax and duty handling.

Another option? Have all your packages delivered at once with recognized shipment consolidators and save big on all bulk international orders. Shipment consolidators also take care of pickup and automatically add insurance and delivery confirmation services to shipments.
