)-- An Post has launched their new Online Shopping Directory, a shop window to hundreds of online shops and great gift ideas for the holidays. It can be found at http://www.AnPost.ie/OnlineShopping. The online shopping directory is one of the most comprehensive lists available of online retailers in Ireland; and there are already hundreds of Irish companies benefiting from the service. The free service from An Post supports online businesses in Ireland and encourages Irish shoppers to do more online, in order to benefit the many online shopping offers and promotions now available.
The An Post Online Directory is a simple channel for access to online shopping stores with a broad range of goods, and there is extra value for these shoppers among the site’s promotional offers, such as straight-forward discounts to free shipping and consultations. Other consumer benefits include a guide to safe shopping online and top tips about pricing for those looking for cheap online shopping, consumer rights and record keeping, as well as correct addressing and packaging information.
The Online Directory is user friendly for shoppers and browsers. Each retailer is listed within one of 14 of the most popular online shopping categories: Gift Ideas, For Baby, Home: Inside and Outside, Gadgets, For Your Car, Pastimes and Hobbies, Fun and Games, Fashion, The Office, Food and Wine, Pets, Special Occasions, Body and Mind, and Sport and Leisure. Whatever you’re looking for, you are sure to find unique gift ideas in one of the categories.
As each business is an active partner in the Online Shopping Directory, all customer promotions are up to the minute and the site has attracted an interesting mix of both well known and enterprising small businesses. New retailers are signing up daily, perhaps due to the growth of the online ordering and parcel delivery business . Interested Etailers can sign up at www.AnPost.ie/OnlineShopping.
Louise Cronje, An Post Online Shopping Manager said “We see a trend among our customers at post offices every day, they are seeking better value for money – from paying bills, to personal finance and buying products and services. The Online Shopping Directory is another simple, everyday service from An Post. It is our way of bringing Irish online retailers and those value minded shoppers together.”
