MasterCard cardholders receive exclusive discounts when using “Shop and Ship” by Aramex for online purchases
MasterCard, a leading global payment solutions provider, and Aramex, the global logistics and transportation solutions provider, today announced a collaboration that offers MasterCard cardholders in the Middle East a range of additional and exclusive benefits when using Aramex’s Shop and Ship service. Until December 1, 2011, MasterCard cardholders will receive 50 per cent off the membership fee and 10 per cent off all shipping charges. This offer will enable cardholders to enjoy Shop and Ship’s renowned convenience and reach at even lower rates.
Shop and Ship is the e-tail delivery service by Aramex that offers Middle East consumers the convenience of online shopping from the US, UK and Europe at competitive rates. Shoppers can access the Aramex service by logging on to ShopandShip.com and signing up for a lifetime membership account. Once the consumer places an order, Aramex receives the ordered goods at its facilities, from the e-tailer, and then ships and delivers them right to the doorstep of the shopper.
With Shop and Ship, consumers and style gurus no longer need to jet off to Knightsbridge or Fifth Avenue to bag the season’s trends or wait for the latest “It” handbag to arrive in Middle East malls. Gadget bliss is only a click away, as gizmo junkies can order the latest arrivals before they hit our shores, all from the comfort of their homes. Movie buffs also have the freedom to get cinematic classics as well as the latest blockbuster Blu-Ray and DVD disks delivered from e-tailers right to their doorsteps.
“MasterCard is delighted to announce this collaboration with Aramex as part of our commitment to offer cardholders in the Middle East priceless shopping experiences. We recognize the importance of online shopping for our cardholders, and are dedicated to ensuring secure and convenient e-tailing for all. The collaboration with Aramex gives cardholders the chance to get their e-shopping delivered to their doors at even more affordable rates”, said Ihab Zaghloul, vice president, Strategic Partnerships & Public Sector Business Development, MasterCard Worldwide.
Hassan Mikail, Regional E-Commerce Services Manager, Aramex, said “Shop and Ship gives consumers more opportunities to ‘buy it over there and get it over here,’ without having to worry about exorbitant shipping fees or limited shipping and delivery destinations. We are delighted to collaborate with MasterCard to bring this offer to their cardholders. Upon joining Shop and Ship, they will get not only half off their one-time membership fee but also a 10 per cent discount on all shipping charges, making visiting e-shops in the US, UK and Europe all the more convenient and affordable.”
