ShopinAmerica opens head service center in Yerevan
YEREVAN, September 8. /ARKA. The head service center of ShopInAmerica opened today at a post office in the downtown Koryun Street in Yerevan. "About 50 thousand people now use our services. Goods are delivered to Armenia (from USA) within 7 working days. We provide also a unique service: now our customers are able to pay customs duties at the nearest Haypost office. We also launched a courier delivery service," Juan Pablo Gechidjian, CEO of Haypost Trust Management CJSC, said at the opening ceremony.
According to him, affordable service prices were achieved thanks to the fact that HayPost is the largest player in the Armenian market of postal services. Gechidjian said also the second ShopInAmerica office opened in the US state of Delaware, where the sales tax is 0%. The first office opened earlier in Glendale, California. Customers can purchase goods in the US online, which then are delivered to the HayPost office in Glendale. From there, they are shipped to a HayPost office in Armenia nearest to the customer.
The HayPost office in Glendale enables swift and safe delivery of a wide range of goods directly from the US to HayPost offices in Armenia without the need to go through customs, as the customers can enjoy tax free imports of goods to Armenia if they make purchases of up to AMD 200,000 and 30 kg per month. This unique platform contributes to increase the trade between Armenia and the U.S.
There are currently 30 ShopIn Store service centers all over Armenia. Delivery of a parcel weighing up to 400 g will cost $2 (956 Armenian drams). The delivery of each kilogram is worth $5 (2,391 drams). HayPost CJSC is the national postal operator, providing postal, financial and retail trade services.
