ShopO LLC is a cause-related, cross-border, e-commerce and logistics company specializing in services that make it possible for non-US residents to find, buy and ship products from the US to countries around the world. WorldShop LLC is the parent company of ShopO LLC and both companies use ShopO.com, ShopO.org, ShopO.co and other variations of the ShopO brand to organize consumers into ShopO Circles so that ShopO Circle Leaders can provide shopping services to ShopO Circle Members.
Both ShopO Circle Leaders and ShopO Circle Members are assigned US physical addresses to ship orders to and when these packages arrive, they are opened, inspected, photographed and consolidated into a single outbound box which is then shipped to the international address of the ShopO Circle Leader.
