Asked on 14 Nov 2018
I receive about 5-15 packages every month from online purchases. I have no one to accept package at home during normal working hour thus I ship them to office. Recently, my office has banned personal delivery to office. Any suggestion to handle these situation?
You can ask any of your neighbours to receive it as many of the stores do not pay any objection to that and you can also ask them to deliver at some other place but that too with some conditions, you can ask to deliver in 30km distance or something, every portal maintain some conditions to shipping so you have to know it before you make any changes. Before starting the shipping process also, by checking the estimated delivery, you can change the shipping address if you know if you are not going to be there at the given address which is possible in some sites. So, according to your availability choose the details in the site. The popular E-commerce stores like Amazon, Noon, Souq and others follow their own rules so, be aware of them. Amazon AE offers special shipping on some order which you can check at the store.
Depending on the online eCommerce platform, you can consider making use of self-collection points (if applicable) like Singpost's POPStations, 7-Eleven etc. Alternatively, you can try to ask your neighbour if they can receive the parcel on your behalf.
