SwissWebMall - order goods to your Swiss address online via a virtual shopping mall

Just wanted to announce that this afternoon we launched a new website SwissWebMall.com which serves as a virtual shopping mall for English speakers in Switzerland. Very simply the site exists to make it easier for English speakers to find what online retailers there are out there who deliver to Swiss addresses.

Working as a store directory split into several sections, the list of retailers featured is by no means exhaustive and will be expanded regularly over the coming months. We thought that the bare-bones version which we uploaded today would still be of use to many English Forum goers and so please come and have a look.

Thanks.

Re: SwissWebMall - order goods to your Swiss address online via a virtual shopping ma

Tonight we have published the latest issue of the email newsletter of SwissWebMall.com special offers. This issue we focus on Christmas gift ideas, a theme which will be continued in the next issue. We have also limited the featured products to those available online from Switzerland based retailers so you can order without worrying about paying customs duties or international delivery timescales.

We have simplified the free subscription sign-up and only require that name and email address be provided in the form on the main page www.swisswebmall.com. Anyone who signs up will receive the latest issue automatically and immediately once they have replied to the confirmation email.

Thank you and happy shopping!

Re: SwissWebMall - order goods to your Swiss address online via a virtual shopping ma

I don't get it; where is the need for this service? In my experience, at least 80% of European stores will ship stuff to Switzerland. I normally just use Google to find the best source for a product, then verify that the store will ship to CH. This seems far more effective than limiting my search to the stores that are on your site. Please tell me why anyone needs your service!

Thanks for your feedback ChrisW. I take your point but would add that Google is only of use if you know what it is you are looking for. I would also add that if you take your argument further then why bother with any type of store at all in Switzerland since the chances are the product can be sourced cheaper somewhere else in Europe? Our site is not intended as an exhaustive list of points of sale for products. SwissWebMall.com is for people who like to browse and find stores they might not otherwise know exist. We make it easy to choose a store based in Switzerland (identified on the site by a Swiss flag next to the name) which many find appealling when looking for prompt delivery, or to avoid all the hassles, uncertainties and costs that are associated with imported items customs duties and courier companies.

The latest issue of our newsletter provides some gift ideas and is intended for use when you are not certain what exactly you wish to purchase. Subscription to the newsletter is free, the choice to purchase anything you see within from any of the stores is yours. We have had positive feedback from people who have found shops they were previously unaware of through our site.

Just to remind that in the current issue of our free newsletter (published yesterday) we provide some Christmas gift ideas. To subscribe please enter your name and email address in the form on the main page www.swisswebmall.com. Anyone who signs up will receive the latest issue automatically and immediately once they have replied to the confirmation email.

Re: SwissWebMall - order goods to your Swiss address online via a virtual shopping ma

We find that take-up of the offers presented in the SwissWebMall.com free e-newsletter varies widely. Please let us know which type of offers interest you, e.g. travel, clothing, electronics, software, food, drink, and whether you like to see specific products featured or voucher codes for companies. Whichever type of offer you are interested in we will try to feature more of in our next issue.

If you haven't already you can sign up for free simply with your name and email address in the form on the main page www.swisswebmall.com and receive our latest issue instantly.

Not quite what you were asking, but I usually avoid signing up for such things. I get enough e-mail as it is ...

Maybe it's because I'm doing this from my workplace, but this page has a lot of dark blue out of black, which I find illegible.

http://www.swisswebmall.com/html/electronics.html

And the last link on the bottom right, to tintenmax.ch, is broken ...

Thanks for the feedback. I'll get onto the broken link and consider a colour change for the next update. Don't be put off subscribing by the thought of a flood of email - you are looking at one per month with this.
