Just launched TheBestBuyKorea.com provides buying services for expats in Korea, people outside of Korea, and buyers or sellers who want to import goods from Korea.
“Tried to register at a well known Korean online shopping mall to order a dress online. However it seemed that they only allow Koreans with local ID to register~~~it is not my first time to encounter this problem. I just don't get it~why is internet shopping so difficult in Korea??? ???Sometimes after all the troubles registering, I only find out they need local Korean credit cards to proceed with payment~ ”
Above is one of complaints from expats in Korea. Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon problem in Korea. ID numbers are required for the simplest of activities here - for a number of historical and current social reasons, there is an emphasis on ‘real names’.
“Internet shopping is supposed to be fun and convenient with no borderline,” said Chong-Chin Pak, President of TheBestBuyKorea.com. “That is why I have launched TheBestBuyKorea.com”.
Korea is an online shopping paradise with all kinds of items at unbeatable prices and cheap doorstep delivery, that is, as long as you are Korean. Foreigners are mostly left in the cold - faced with obstacles due to language and Korean ID numbers required when shopping online. Of course, there are some specialized online stores in English for foreigners in Korea, however, you are often left with limitations on certain items and uncompetitive prices.
TheBestBuyKorea.com is designed to provide their members with the same convenience and unbeatable price that local Korean shoppers enjoy access to.
Importers can use TheBestBuyKorea.com as their buying office in Korea. Importers do not need to search and deal with individual suppliers everytime they want something from Korea. Just let TheBestBuyKorea.com know what importers want, and TheBestBuyKorea.com will provide all importer's (sourcing, dealing, inspecting, shipping, et al?service) needs.
“Naturally, importers want a price that is the same or lower than what they would pay (even including our commission) if they were to import directly by themselves. It is possible, through our extensive buying power reflected in our 20 plus years of experience in domestic and international trading.” Chong-Chin Pak added.
It is very simple for buyers to use TheBestBuyKorea.com‘s service. After quick registering at the website, just fill out buying request, and TheBestBuyKorea.com will find proper items at the lowest price possible through online traders, wholesalers, stockists and manufacturers, and give quotation under the buying request. In TheBestBuyKorea.com’s service, buyers can buy anything that exists in Korea from A to Z, whether it be new or used, or even services, with no minimum order term.
TheBestBuyKorea.com accepts Paypal and international credit cards for buyers convenience, not like most other Korean websites.
