TrueBranches, an online export/import service company, has introduced a free BlackBerry mobile app to bring its services closer to its customers. With this new mobile app Nigerians will be able to buy items in US stores using their BlackBerry mobile phones and have them delivered to them in Nigeria. The BlackBerry app also enables merchants in Nigeria to sell their products to the US market.
The TrueBranches mobile app is an extension of the website located at www.truebranches.com. It is aimed at bringing its services closer to its customers and empowering them to access its services from anywhere without restriction.
TrueBranches offers two core services namely the Buy USA and the Buy Africa services. The Buy USA service enables businesses and individuals in Nigeria and all across Africa to buy from the US and have them delivered to their chosen address in Africa. The Buy Africa service, on the other hand gives people living in the United States, abroad and within Africa easy access to Nigerian based merchants with plans for Ghanaian and South African merchants.
Have you ever tried shopping in a US based online store only to be told that the item you are interested in cannot be shipped to Nigeria? If you have, you will appreciate the value of the TrueBranches service. Without a service like this your option will be either to buy return ticket to the United States to buy the item or try your luck in the few shopping malls in Nigeria. The TrueBranches service is also great for wholesalers who import goods from the United States.
The beauty of TrueBranches is that unlike other online stores where custom duties are not included in your cost, leaving you with additional cost and the hassle of clearing your goods; TrueBranches does all this for you and bills the cost as part of the shipping and service charges. So you know the total cost of the item before paying. There is an exception if the item you are buying is a car.
To enjoy the service, visit TrueBranches website at www.truebranches.com to download the free BlackBerry app. You can also use the service directly at the website. You will need to signup for the service first, then login with your account credential, and start searching for items. TrueBranches allows you to search for items by type, name, designer, etc.
If you find what you want, submit your quote and pay using online transfer or cash at GTBank or UBA. Payment can also be made online via GTBank webpay. Shipping takes 7 to 10 working days for air freight. For containers delivered through the sea, the shipping period can take from 6 to 8 weeks.
