Shipito vs Global Shopaholics
Sales-tax free shopping

Here’s where the company plays it smart. Shipito has one of its warehouses located in the tax-free region of Oregon but still the tax free shopping feature is only available to premium annual customers. Global Shopaholics offers a tax-free shopping and shipping experience to all its customers, regardless of the plan they are subscribed to.

Warehouses

Shipito has two warehouses located in the US, California, and Oregon. The Oregon warehouse comes under the tax-free region hereby that is the only location that offers tax-free shopping and shipping services. California warehouse is centrally located and charges a handsome fee for shipping internationally. Another noticeable point is that both the warehouses have a limitation of shipping only a certain number of boxes at a time.
Global Shopaholics provides you the liberty of shopping like a true shopaholic and shipping as many packages as you want! Additionally, the business plan lets you ship huge volumes of shipments too. This perk presently only comes in GS’s subscription plans. Global Shopaholics focuses on quality more than quantity, it has its warehouse located in Delaware, USA which is also a tax-free region. All the shipments being processed are absolutely tax-free!
