For a very long time, citizens from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore have been restricted by overseas online shopping for reasons including non-international credit cards not being accepted by overseas merchants and unavailable or too-expensive overseas delivery.

In answer to these disadvantages, allying with PayPal, international express delivery giant TNT and millions of British and European online merchants, NET-THE-GLOBE.COM has developed a unique cross-border online shopping platform.

NET-THE-GLOBE.COM offers two services: "BuyForMe" and "DeliveryForMe". When merchants are not accepting international credit cards or when international delivery is not offered, members can choose "BuyForMe" whereby NET-THE-GLOBE.COM will purchase the goods and deliver them to the member's chosen address. When international credit cards are accepted but merchants provide no international delivery, members can choose "DeliveryForMe" to instruct NET-THE-GLOBE.COM to deliver the goods to member's chosen address. NET-THE-GLOBE.COM provides every member with a unique UK address when they register free online so that merchants can deliver to a UK address.
