Albert Einstein once said, “strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” Ppali-Ppali Express agrees with Mr. Einstein and strives to add value via convenience and access to our customers living in South Korea with various ways to use our services. Our customers, in return, praise us for our great results, personalized service, expert knowledge, and on-time delivery.

Here is what our customers are saying:

  1. Alexia Lawson: “Would highly recommend Ppali-Ppali Express for quick, hassle-free shipping from the U.S. to Korea! I ordered online from a few shops based in the States, and PPE was able to consolidate my items and ship them here within just 3 days! Shipping with them was the best option especially since 1) some of these shops couldn't ship internationally and 2) I would have had to pay separate shipping fees had I ordered these items directly to Korea. Ppali-Ppali Express also kept me in the loop about my shipment throughout the whole process. Plus, I got some Western snacks I've been missing! Would definitely use their service again!”

  2. Jessica Cash: “I had an amazing experience with Ppali-Ppali Express. It was fast, simple and easy. The people at Ppali-Ppali Express were so helpful, especially when there was a delay with my package coming to them. They helped me through with what to do. Honestly, they have kept me from freezing this winter. I can’t thank them enough. I will definitely be using them in the future. Thank you Ppali-Ppali Express!! Update: Since this initial review, I have used Ppali-Ppali Express two more times. Both times the experiences was simply amazing. I got my packages super fast and the process was easy. For me having this type of service is amazing. Using Ppali-Ppali Express has brought me soooo much peace of mind when I have to ship things from home. Totally worth it. Plus everyone has been super friendly and helpful whenever I have reached out to them. Thank you again Ppali-Ppali express for making this journey in Korea easier for me.”

  3. Sasha Subramanyam: “100% recommend!! The entire process was so easy and seamless. The PPE team was always available to answer any of my questions. Also I sent my package during Xmas rush but I still received it in just 2 business days since the package reached them. I’m so happy to have discovered their service!!”

  4. Adele Vitale: “As a long-term resident of Korea, there are certain things that I have given up on ever finding here, but some others I just need to get from time to time. Working with Korean forwarding companies can be rather frustrating even when you speak the language, so I was excited to try PpaliPpali -- and they didn't disappoint! While fees might be higher than the Korean equivalent, they make up for it in kindness, ease, and speed (and even added a sweet little freebie!). My shopping experience was a dream! Will definitely be using again~”

  5. Sewa Oyedele Caleb:“ I highly recommend PPE!! I’ve been wanting to buy this product from RadSwan that doesn’t ship to Korea & I’m so glad I used PPE. They messaged me every step of the way, gave me a tracking number for my box and it was delivered within the week! Plus! My MunchPack is AWESOME! I put that I missed eating puffy Cheetos and guess what was in my munch pack? PUFFY CHEETOS!! I’m going to be using their services exclusively from now on.“

We listen to what our customers need and what they are saying about us. Our customers have many reasons to love Ppali-Ppali Express, as you can see and we appreciate our customers’ feedback.

Living abroad can be daunting when shipping, especially for those in South Korea. Some companies don’t ship to the country or charge a premium for international shipping. How are you supposed to complete your year-long contract abroad without your favorite goodies? Of course, your first response is to order them online.

People are online shopping more, but packages are arriving slowly or not at all. According to Clutch, 51 percent of online shoppers did not receive at least one package they ordered online in the past six months. Only a tiny percentage of the 528 people Clutch surveyed claimed their packages were stolen. However, 32 percent said that their packages got lost in the mail.

“If a package is lost in the mail, it’s often due to the shipping label being incorrect or falling off,” says Karen Sign, Principal at Kersch Partners, a business management consulting firm that offers supply chain and consumer packaging consulting. Expats living in South Korea need a reliable company to trust when sending their valuables across the world.

Ppali-Ppali Express is available for anyone living in South Korea that needs items that aren’t available in Korea or don’t ship to Korea. We guarantee quick and safe shipping through our exclusive partnership with Korea Post. You can send your favorite international brands or personal belongings to our secured US mailbox and receive your items in Korea in three to five days.

Who uses Ppali-Ppali Express?

Ppali-Ppali Express is for anyone living in South Korea that needs or wants goods that will not ship to a Korean address. This includes international students, foreign guest teachers, small expat business owners, the American military, bloggers and influencers based in South Korea, and families or friends with loved ones living in South Korea. As long as you have a Korean customs code or passport number, Ppali-Ppali Express can mail your items to South Korea.

Ways to Use Ppali-Ppali Express:

1. Purchase items that can’t directly ship to South Korea

Some companies in the US or UK don’t ship their products to South Korea, even when using an American military address. Ppali-Ppali Express acts as a mail forwarding service for situations like this. The secured mailbox is based in the US and is used for all legally approved items. Small businesses in the US often do not offer international shipping to South Korea or US military addresses. With Ppali-Ppali Express, you don’t have to miss out on your favorite small or large brands. We offer simple, secure, quick delivery from the US to South Korea.

2. Split the costs with a friend

Why carry the burden alone when you can share a box with a friend? This way, you and your friend save each other time and money by sharing one package. Ppali-Ppali Express can combine your items and ship them together. Just let us know who you are communicating with, and we will confirm all items to be shipped.

3. Consolidate multiple packages

There is no need to ship multiple packages one by one; we will collect all your packages and combine them into one box. Ppali- Ppali Express will consolidate your containers into a smaller, more cost-effective option. However, packages such as electronics or fragile items can not be reduced to avoid damage risks. Nevertheless, paying one shipping price to send multiple packets to SK is an added benefit of shipping with Ppali-Ppali Express.

4. Have family and friends send personal items or care packages

We understand that expats living in South Korea aren’t the only ones to ship packages to South Korea. Ppali-Ppali Express is also available to friends and family that need to send it to their loved ones in South Korea. They can ship directly to Ppali-Ppali Express's secured mailbox, and we will forward the package to you. This service is perfect for sending your winter coats or shoes that didn’t fit into your luggage.

5. To ship US wholesale packages for your Korean-based small business

Are wholesale shipping costs from the US killing your business budget? Then allow Ppali-Ppali Express to save you time and money by using us as your middle man. Business owners can expect the same fast 3-5 day delivery as our customers and save on international shipping fees by sending bulk items to our secure mailbox. We can consolidate them or send them in the original packaging to your business in South Korea. Ppali-Ppali Express is an excellent option for small businesses in Korea, especially when stocking up products for local flea markets.

Whether you’re living inside of South Korea longing for the comforts of home or you’re living in the US trying to send a care package to South Korea, Ppali- Ppali Express has a cost-effective and quick shipping solution. We minimize the chances of your packages being lost or stolen in transit. You can expect an effortless, prompt, secure shipping service with none of the hassle or stress.
