Online shoppers in Latin America and the Caribbean enjoy easy, fast, cost-effective delivery from U.S. retailers
MIAMI, November 17, 2010 - BrandsMart USA (www.BrandsMartUSA.com), one of the largest
per-store-volume retailers in the United States, is now expanding its
cross-border online shopping capability to customers in Latin America and the
Caribbean. The service is made possible through a strategic partnership with
PuntoMio (www.PuntoMio.com), the international shopping facilitator
that gives non-U.S. residents a U.S. address which they can use to place
online orders from U.S. retailers.
With this new service, consumers accessing www.BrandsMartUSA.com
from Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and other
countries are directed to the BrandsMart USA international website, through
integration with PuntoMio. Customers will see products displayed in local
currency and the purchase price will include transportation to their country,
duties, taxes, and delivery within 5 to 8 days of purchase.
"We observe a large amount of Latin American and Caribbean shoppers in
our stores every day. Relying on PuntoMio's expertise to reach out to those
customers in their own country is a valuable advantage that we believe will
translate into a significant increase in online sales for us," stated Bobby
Johnson, Executive Vice-President of BrandsMart USA.
E-commerce in LATAM experienced a nearly 40% growth last year, and is
expected to increase another 27% in 2010, according to AmericaEconomia
Intelligence. "With this partnership we reach out to a growing market and
further extend PuntoMio's visibility among potential customers throughout
Latin America and the Caribbean," said Patricia Voigt, General Manager of
PuntoMio. "We offered BrandsMart USA a truly integrated and easy to implement
platform that eliminated their challenges with international e-Commerce. With
our private delivery network we were able to offer them much lower and more
accurate costs compared to other international checkout solutions that depend
on the major express carriers."
www.PuntoMio.com provides complete information on how to subscribe
to the service and obtain a U.S. address for general shopping from more than
1.7 million other online stores and catalogues in the U.S.
PuntoMio, a division of SkyShop Logistics, Inc (OTC Bulletin Board: SKPN)
www.skyshoplogistics.com, is an international shopping facilitator for
online buyers that transforms the shopping experience from the time of
purchase through cross-border delivery. PuntoMio enables U.S. merchants to
sell to non-U.S. residents without the risks associated with foreign sales.
