Web Site Review: Shop Shanghai from Your Couch

What: Shangby.com

Why: You buy products made in China everyday, which are boxed up and shipped to the states all the time. The whole import/export thing is wonderful because you get access to items you may not normally have access to, but each step of the export process usually incurs a new fee. Guess who gets to pay that fee? You do. If you’re tired of paying the overhead, make your way to this new shopping site, Shangby.com.

Shangby.com provides personal shoppers and live access videos to various top-notch stores in Shanghai, taking all the work (and those expensive plane tickets) out of the experience and leaving you with a bargain shopping adventure. Users shop by watching scheduled live video feeds or checking out past events at the click of a button. Not only do you skip the overhead, but Shangby shoppers get some serious discounts -– up to 80% off things like freshwater pearl necklaces and silk bags. How’s that for an exotic and budget friend shopping trip from the comfort of your home?

Keep It or Return It? Keep it. Just don’t be surprised about the shipping costs. It’ll cost you $30 for anything under $400, plus a 15% “handling fee” on your total order. Even still, the prices are much lower than shopping stateside, especially if you fill up that virtual shopping cart.
