With billions of people having access to the Internet today and a smartphone in the pocket, the e-commerce industry has been experiencing a huge growth during the past decade. Thanks to the conveniences of online shopping, more and more people are turning to their computers to shop. More often than not, the price of the product you see online is going to be lower than the price in the store.
The goal of the online shops is to try and present to you the most relevant product based on your most recent search and interests. Your goal, however, is to find the best deal and there is something that can help you with that.
Surf2Ship is the world’s first price comparison website to offer cross-border shipping. It is a truly useful tool for any online shopping enthusiast. Beta testing is currently in progress, but you are welcome to take a look at the website and admire the user experience.
The person who takes the credit for creating this website is Ravidu Mario Weerakoon, a 21-year-old entrepreneur. He is a product innovation manager at Connect Lanka and a founder of Surf2Ship. He has a lot of experience in the field of technology and logistics. Him being the only child in his family means that he got a good insight in what is like to be forced to fix your problems on your own which proved to be a very useful skill later in life.
So, what is actually new about this website?
Surf2Ship merges the concept of price comparison with cross-border shipping offering users a truly unique experience. While the concept of cross-border shipping has been around for a while now, this combination is fresh and new. You can easily compare the prices and find the best one on the website before making a decision and proceeding to a shopping cart.
The founder, Ravidu Mario Weerakoon, is urging Sri Lankan entrepreneurs to start selling their products globally using the tools that will be provided to them by Surf2Ship in the near future.
