We’ve all been there: you want some items from Amazon that are much more expensive or are simply not available in Lebanon. But shipping from Amazon to Lebanon means you will have to do one of two things: either create a PO box somewhere in the US and have your item shipped there then forwarded to Lebanon, or wait for a friend or family member to come to Lebanon.
Both options can be a hassle, so could there be another way? There is, with onyourway.io.
Currently, what are my available options to get items from Amazon to Lebanon?
As of now, there are two major ways to order items from Amazon and have them shipped to Lebanon:
-Parcel forwarding services allow you to create a delivery address in the US where you can get items delivered, then ship your packages to Lebanon. This method has been around for some time and has a variety of drawbacks. Delivery delays can be quite long and cost estimations are very vague. You can never know what the final cost will be as customs fees cannot be forecast accurately, and you can’t estimate delivery times precisely as parcels can get stuck at the port.
-Local practice is to ask friends and family who are traveling to bring the item with them. They’re usually Lebanese residents visiting the US or Europe, or they’re residents from there coming to Lebanon. Either way, you depend on people’s travel schedules, luggage space, and willingness to transport sometime high-value items.
Both currently available solutions aren’t great.
Could there be a better way of “Amazon to Lebanon?”
Seeing all these “anyone coming to Beirut from New York soon?” posts, we decided it was time to find a better way. To look for a solution that made delivering products from abroad simple, transparent, and secure. Finally, we came up with an idea: there are people who come and go regularly, and there are people who want to deliver their goods more often than they currently can. Why not create a marketplace where these two categories of users can connect and benefit mutually? On one side, buyers get their stuff faster and at a better price while on the other side, travelers get paid in exchange for some luggage space. Simple and efficient. With time, our service has evolved to provide a better service with faster and more secure deliveries.
