You’ve heard of the personal shopper, but that’s usually confined to an interaction on the same continent; ShopandBox lets you do that across the seas. It’s an online peer-to-peer personal shopping service, where you talk to a “boxer” about what to buy and he or she will deliver it to you. You’re probably asking: what makes it different from patronising an online shopping portal? Well, the purchased items are not marked up (there is a 10 to 14 percent service fee), your boxer gives real-time updates on product availability and pricing, and you’re interacting with a trustworthy human being.

The ShopandBox app is available for iOS and Android users.
