Shop and Ship is the inbound 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 the Shop and Ship webpage and signing up for a lifetime membership account. Once the consumer places an order, Aramex receives the ordered goods at its facilities, from the retailer, 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 retailers right to their doorsteps.
Aramex will set up personal UK and a US PO Box addresses for a one-off set-up fee. This is normally US$35, but they are offering a 50% discount to members of Muscat Mums, so the set-up cost is now only US$17.50.
You can then have goods mailed to these addresses, and they will be couriered out to Muscat & delivered to your door. The cost is 5.250 RO for the first half kg, then 3.500 RO for each half kg after that.

Also, if you order books (& DVDs) from Amazon.co.uk, you can have them sent to Al Manahil's warehouse in UK, who will then ship them out to Muscat. It will cost you 1RO per item.
