Have you ever arrived at the check-out of an Australian online store and wondered why there's a 5 day wait to get your item delivered? If it's quicker to abandon the cart and whizz into town to get the item you want, then you can really go bonkers wondering why it takes so long within Australia to get an online item delivered sooner. I spend a lot of time shopping online, and I have backed out of plenty of purchases at the checkout. It's easier to click over to other sites with faster delivery instead. I've had one particularly ridiculous shopping experience, where I spent up big on Christmas gifts from one store, and didn't read the fine print, I found out too late that the items were due to be delivered in January!
I have to say that I try to be organised, but sometimes things just fall under the radar, like presents for my nieces birthdays, or new shoes for an event on the weekend. So I take my fedora off to the two Sydney girls who've just launched the new shopping site, WantItNow.com.au. They were regularly annoyed when they got to the checkout of their favourite online stores to find that the product they just purchased could not be delivered for 5 days, so Fiona Pearse and Emma Cronin have put their experience in fast courier delivery to the test, and have gathered together 50 retailers in Sydney and Melbourne, creating a shopping environment that guarantees 3 hour delivery.
WantItNow.com.au brings together The Iconic, Styletread, Bras N Things, DesignerForum, Hussy, Jade & Bella, Musstard, Cashmere Angel, Viparo Leather, Kamali Moon, Lo & Behold, Braun Buffel, Love Me & Leave Me, Tuffys & Tuffetts, Rock Indigo and soon to launch Glassons.
I'm just loving the idea that if you're in need of some macaroons in a hurry, there is a service that will ensure they'll arrive on your doorstep within 3 hours. But what's more thrilling to me than a fast moving macaroon, is a fast moving accessory! So I'll be putting WantItNow.com.au to the test shortly to see if I can transform my outfit from day to night after a Friday lunchtime shop. Let's just say, you never know when Mr Sweet from IT is finally going to get the nerve to ask you out for Friday night drinks. And although he might not appreciate the lastest in neon accessories, he just might like a fast moving macaroon.
