Shipbuktu alpha-launched today. The site is still in test, but the back-end logistics are set. essentially. I’m involved on an unconfirmed sem-official basis.
Shipbuktu gives Kiwis a USA address, so you can shop the internet USA style. Amazon electronics, Gap clothing, and everything from telescopes to car parts are finally available to us here. Believe me – it’s been hard living here without the ability to get hte latest Apple gear, clothes off the rack that fit or books delivered the next day. This site will help, and along the way render Ferrit a bit of damage.
The only catch is that some sites require a US addressed credit card. Try using an APO address in the meantime, and we’ll keep working on the credit card thing.
