Review: Airfrov

imageHave you ever seen an awesome makeup collection but they are only available in that particular country and you cannot get your hands on it? NOW YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY!!! With Airfrov, you can get nice (super nice) travelers to ‘tompang’ your goodies back!!

So what is Airfrov about?

Airfrov was created by Cai Li (co-founder) who was always helping his girlfriend purchase products overseas. The idea of Airfrov is to allow shoppers to tap on frequent travelers to get their hands on unique products from all over the world.

So far, you can make requests for Taiwan, Japan, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and many many more!

You no longer have to worry about lost shipments (mother of all horrors!), overpriced items or not being able to get that new limited edition Chanel lipstick that is #omgiwantitbutnotavailableinSingapore!

How does it work?

It is surprisingly hassle-free and simple! You can get your products in 4 easy steps:

airfrov how it worksYou can download the app from App Store/ Google Play

imageOnce installed, you will need to register for an account (if not, how to buy your stuff? haha)

imageYou can search for the item or click on the countries to check out what people are buying.

imageYou can choose to request for your item or if you see someone requesting for something that you want to get, you can click on the “+” at the top right hand corner to copy the request.

imageIf there is an item that you want but no one has posted it yet, it’s simple. You can click on “Post”

imageYou can either “Post Trip”, or my favorite, “Post Request”

imageYou would need to key in the details accordingly. In the item details, you can indicate price of the item, where to find it or even give special instructions to your traveller. After that you can estimate how much you are willing to pay. Do note the item you pay will be slightly higher than retail price – because you may want to factor in your traveller’s transport cost.

imageOn top of that, you will need to pay for an additional 7% + $2. This is to cover administrative cost and credit card charges.

imageAfter you have successfully posted your request, you can now sit back and relax and wait for someone to help you buy your stuff. You will receive a notification (within your app and through your registered email address) to inform you if someone has taken up your request.

imageAfter that, you have the option to accept or reject the offer made by your traveller.

You can also access your Profile to check the status of your request, if it is Completed or Pending Delivery. If it is still Pending Delivery, it will show your traveller’s return date.

Once your traveller is back, you have 3 options:

  1. Choose to collect your items from Airfrov office. It is located at 36 Purvis Street which is near Bugis MRT
  2. Opt for postage at a price
  3. Arrange with your traveller to meet up at a central location

imageYou will be given a welcome gift of $10 which you can use to offset any purchase ($5 off for every $20 spent). You can view your credits and find out your credits by clicking on “More” > “Airfrov Credits.

imageYou will also be given referral codes which you can share with your shopaholic kakis. You can use mine too!! (HAHA) Sharing is Caring, isn’t it?!

I am a HUGE fan (*cough* spender *cough*) on Airfrov. I have made so many purchases from Airfrov because I am such a huge fan of Disney Store Japan. Their Little Mermaid collection is too irresistible to say no  (Please tie up my hands and cover my eyes)

My haul from Airfrov

airfrov haul 3I have also gotten myself an Anello bag which is a craze now in Japan! I love the Anello X Pageboy collaboration. What made my already awesome bag more awesome?

THIS!!!! It has my name inside, although coincidence, but still seems like it’s a personalized bag! #cheapthrills

anelloI have posted this in my recent Instagram post titled “What’s in my Bag”. As you can see, 90% of the items are my purchases from Airfrov
