If your favorite K-stores don’t ship it to your country, don’t worry – we do.
Delivered Korea was founded in 2008 with a single mission: to help people from all around the world buy easily, pay less, and speedily receive their orders from South Korea. We offer fast, reliable, and efficient package forwarding to over 220 countries.
Why to use our services?
It is no secret that Korea is home to some of the best beauty and skincare products in the world. It is the place to shop for high-quality cosmetics, and with the Korean wave being at its prime nowadays, people from everywhere in the world are getting interested in becoming the consumers of K-beauty goodies. From the trendy makeup lines of your favorite K-pop stars to the famous skincare products that every influencer is raving about – Korean online shopping stores got you covered.
A lot of foreign online stores are distributing Korean products nowadays as well, but they usually bump up the prices, rarely have sales, and offer a smaller selection of products – when you compare that with the lowest prices possible, frequent sales and buy more save more deals, and a wide selection of every K-beauty product you can think of, that the Korean online stores are offering, the question “Where to buy?” becomes an obvious no-brainer.
It all sounds great, right? You go to your Korean online store of choice, find a bunch of famous beauty products you had on your wish list at discounted prices, add them to your cart and proceed to checkout. And then you are faced with the archenemy of everyone living in a smaller country – the Shipping address field. If you’re lucky – the store will ship to your country, if you’re less lucky – it will ship to your country but with a ridiculous shipping rate, and if you’re really unlucky – your country won’t even be on the list of countries they ship to. Sad indeed, nothing worse than your dreams of clear skin and tinted lips and cheeks being crushed like that. Luckily, this is where we come into play!
Delivered Korea will provide you with your own free Korean address, making it possible for you to buy from any store based in Korea! Upon registration, you’ll get the address of our warehouse, to where all your packages will be shipped to. With the address, you’ll also get a suite number – it’s everything we need to know a package is yours.
You can buy items yourself, or we can buy them for you
Upon registration, we offer two main options to our users:
You Buy, We Ship
Basically, after you’re finished filling up your shopping cart with the K-products at the online store of your choice, all you need to do is type in the address we provided you with (including the suit number) at checkout. And that’s it! Your package will usually arrive to our warehouse in 2-3 days. You’ll be notified once we’ve received it, and then you can choose how and when you want us to ship it to your address.
Important: After you’ve confirmed the order on the shopping store’s website, you need to come back to your Delivered Korea account’s page and fill in the “You Buy, We Ship Form” – that way you’ll be notifying us that you placed the order and that your package will arrive to our warehouse. If you don’t do that before the package arrives to the warehouse, another $5 will be charged to your account – so it’s best to fill in the form as soon as you place the order.
After we’ve received your package, we’ll send you an email and then all that’s left to do is for you to choose a carrier and pay for the shipping to your location.
We offer you a lot of benefits for saving coins on shipping – you can combine multiple packages into one and pay less for shipping, and even if you have only one package our international shipping is cheaper than what you would normally pay as an individual with the same carriers.
Also, we’ll store your package for you in our warehouse for one month, completely free of charge!
We Buy and Ship
Some Korean online shopping stores require you to have a Korean credit card or PayPal account, but don’t stress – we’ll manage that for you as well!
With our personal shopping service, you can simply fill out a form telling us what you want to buy and where you want to buy it from, and our team of shoppers will do everything else for you. Once we’ve confirmed the items are available for purchasing, you can confirm your order through our website, pay for the items and wait for them to arrive to us.
After they arrive, the drill is the same as for the “You Buy, We Ship” packages – you choose the packages you want to be shipped to you, choose the delivery option, and after paying your items are officially on their way to your home!
*All payments on our website can be made using a credit card, debit card, PayPal, or Delivered’s balance.
For a more detailed step-by-step guide on how to use both the “You Buy, We Ship” and “We Buy and Ship” services to shop for your desired K-beauty products, refer to this link.
How much will we charge you for shipping the products to you?
Ah, the most important question. Actually, we made it pretty simple for you to calculate the exact amount of money you’ll pay for shipping based on the weight, size, and destination of your package – with our Shipping Calculator that’ll do all the math for you.
Also, you have the option of choosing one of the six different carriers we are working with to ship your packages:
- K-Packet – available only up to 2kg
- FedEx Priority
- Fedex Economy
Where to find your favorite K-beauty products?
If you don’t know where to buy something, you can consult us by sending us the picture and the description of the product. However, here are some of our top recommendations on Korean online stores that offer great deals and a variety of products:
OLIVE YOUNG (oliveyoung.co.kr)
Starting off strong, we have the Korean Sephora – Olive Young is a store where you can find any makeup, skincare, and hair & body care product imaginable. They are second to none when it comes to the wide selection of brands and products, they have amazing discounts, and if you purchase one of their pre-made cosmetic sets you’ll get an even better value for your money.
First of all, don’t let the name fool you – it’s pronounced “mi-mi-box”, though this store does sometimes have ridiculously low prices! MBX is an online beauty shopping mall that sells various Korean and some international cosmetics brands. They are a multi-brand beauty and personal care startup and creator of several K-beauty brands (Kaja, I Dew Care, Nooni, Pony Effect, I’m Meme, and OTZI). Also, prices on Memebox Korea are much cheaper than on the US version of the site! It’s a mandatory stop for anyone embarking on the K-makeup journey.
Amore Pacific is a massive group of skincare and makeup brands including Laneige, Aritaum, IOPE, Mamonde, Sulhwasoo, Hanyul, Ryo, Happy Bath, Lilikos, Illy, and many others. It’s a great place to shop for some of the more luxurious K-brands and try out something new.
Whichever Korean online store you choose, we got you covered with the Free Korean Address you can use to shop from anywhere! And if you want us to do the shopping for you, our personal shoppers are at your service.
So shop away, fellow K-beauty enthusiasts!
