Two words: SHOPAHOLIC’S DREAM.
Friends, I’ve got some really exciting news to share this afternoon. So exciting, in fact, that I may just go on and on because there is just too much awesomesauce to handle. Are you ready? You’re going to LOVE this.
Now close your eyes… and imagine if there was a company – a CANADIAN company – that could offer:
– An authoritative selection of products
– Unparalleled customer service
– Shopping the widest selection of brands
– ONE shopping cart and ONE check out
– FREE shipping and FREE returns
PLUS, a social media-driven shopping environment so you can shop with your friends; a rewards program based on real dollars that lets you earn every time you buy; rewards for sharing, posting reviews and building your profile; and none of the hassles of cross-border shopping (ding! ding! ding!)
I’m pleased to introduce SHOP.CA – or as we like to call it, the Canadian shopping revolution. It’s the end of cross-border shopping, and the beginning of friendly, hassle-free online shopping – created by Canadians, for Canadians.
(I think the heavens just parted a bit, with rays of sunshine beaming down on us.)
The site officially launches in May, but for eager Canadian shoppers who sign up now (for FREE!), there are tons of amazing perks. Read on!
Now tell me: how frustrating is it to find an item you love online, only to find out that the company doesn’t ship to Canada? (Been there.) Or – you discover that the company does ship to Canada, but after shipping, taxes and brokerage fees, the cost of sending the item actually costs more than your initial purchase? (Been there too.) And finally, what happens when the product finally makes it to your door, but there’s a discrepancy or defective item – and now you have to spend time arguing with a less-than-stellar customer service representative? (Yup, I have definitely been there.)
That’s why I’m so excited about SHOP.CA: the e-commerce site was built by Canadians who are passionate about creating a friendly and social Canadian online shopping environment. All orders are processed and shipped within Canada, which is of course, terrific for our economy.
SHOP.CA is built around a complete social sharing ecosystem. The SHOP.CA reward program encourages Canadians to share their shopping experience with friends, and in turn, create additional opportunities to SHOP & EARN, EVERY TIME. Shoppers will have access to millions of products from the world’s leading brands across 26 categories; clear pricing with no hidden fees; LIVE customer service; FREE Shipping over $40 and FREE Returns for up to 365 days; and a loyalty program with up to 2.5% rewards with every purchase.
Translation: it PAYS to shop at SHOP.CA.
So other than, you know, the awesome, revolutionary new way for Canadians to shop, what’s got me so keyed up? I just happen to be SHOP.CA’s OFFICIAL SHOPAHOLIC! (Pretty great fit, eh?) I’ll be sharing my best SHOP.CA shopping tips, my favourite products from the site, all the latest sales and even a giveaway or two! In short, I’ll endeavor to make the most of your online shopping experience, and be your source for the very best picks and promos. #Excited!
