As a lifestyle influencer, I run instagram giveaway contests quite often. In order to send the giveaway prizes to my followers, I use SmartPac.
For those who are wondering what SmartPac is, it is a postage-paid doorstep delivery with free packaging by Singpost.
Benefits of SmartPac
Why do I choose to use SmartPac? There are many reasons and benefits of using SmartPac.
Firstly, it is super convenient and lightweight. For someone like me who wishes that there are more than 24 hours in a day, SmartPac is a lifesaver as there is no need to join the queue in Signpost to weigh the item and calculate postage before sending.
It is straight delivery to the receiver’s doorstep and if he or she is not at home, SmartPac will be placed in the letterbox. Hence there is no need to request for redelivery.
One great point about SmartPac is that I can enjoy a peace of mind with tracking system in place. This will prevent any conflict between seller and buyer, in the case of ‘missing’ parcels.
How to use SmartPac?
First step is to purchase it from any Post Office or Shop@Singpost.
Next pack your items into a suitable SmartPac (according to weight and recommended dimension) and drop it at/in any Post office or street posting box (57 POs) and more than 800 posting boxes.
In order to test the efficiency of SmartPac, three influencers Flora, Joanna and I did a box swap. What we did was to purchase some items and send to one another.
After some thoughts, I decided to send a bottle of shower cream, a tube of body moisturiser and two packs of titbits to Flora using SmartPac.
All the items fitted nicely into the box for me to send them over to her place.
I could easily track my item’s delivery status via www.singpost.com or SP Mobile App.
Flora could either receive the item from the post man or if she was not at home, item would be placed in her letter box.
SmartPac is just so simple to use!
At the same time, Joanne sent over some presents for me using SmartPac Lite.
Wow… she got me a box of Ferrero Rocher, one of my favourite chocolate brands and also Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion. I heard that this eyeshadow primer was great to use and eyeshadow colours will last throughout the day. Can’t wait to try it out!
Most importantly, the items arrived without any damage.
So wonderful to know that we can safely send items via SmartPac with an ease of mind.
