With so many shops and stores around the world selling many different brands of makeup, cosmetics and beauty products for your skin, it can be difficult to find high quality products that are cheap. An added bonus is to find stores that offer free delivery or shipping to your address whereever you are in the world. It is possible to find free international shipping on many make-up brands, and here in this guide we will try and show you some of the best.
What is free shipping (free delivery)?
Shops tend to offer free shipping as an incentive to buy from them, but it means that you won’t have the extra cost of paying for the courier or postal company to deliver the purchases to your house. This doesn’t mean that the courier will not be paid, instead the shop or store pays them out of the money you have paid them for your shopping.
One way to ensure that the shop can afford to pay the shipping cost on your behalf is to ask you to spend over a certain amount, a minimum spend threshold, in order to qualify for free shipping. An example: if you spend, say $100 for instance, the store should then should be able to pay the courier for delivery and still make a profit on the sale. Of course, you may only want to spend $80, so by offering free shipping over a minimum spend threshold, they may convince you to spend more than you might have done without the free delivery incentive. This, at least, is how it works in theory.
Another free shipping incentive that shops like to offer is through a promotional code or coupon. Many shops will offer, from time to time, a free delivery coupon code, they key here is to find it and use it when you are looking to buy.
Can I get free shipping on my makeup shopping?
We will make a list of beauty and cosmetic stores that offer free shipping in one for or another.
