In the present context of Cuba, shortages are one of the main problems affecting the population. As a result, a series of arrangements have been set up in the private sector to support the import of products and direct shipments to Cuba. This is a particularly good option for Cuban emigrants who have an easy way to send supplies to their relatives on the island.
This advantage for online shops also simplifies the purchase of Cuban products from abroad. In this way, a wide variety of products ranging from food, clothing, hygiene and toiletries to electronic equipment are offered. These products may be bought for shipment to other countries or to Cuba.
According to the official digital media, online shops for Cuba provide a safe and secure service for families wishing to make their purchases. Buying from abroad in Cuba is a very suitable option, according to several websites and internet users, for those who wish to ship items to their loved ones in Cuba. A wide range of products are available to the consumer.
Where can these delivery services be reached from – including availability
These online purchases are possible from any country through related sites, provided that the buyer has access to the internet and payment methods approved on these platforms. For the Cuban government-run media, some of the most widely used international brands are not available, but there are private shops that do offer a wide variety of products.
As some information sites highlight, many online shopping options are limited in Cuba due to limitations in internet access and international trade, but it is always possible to look for alternatives.
Price fluctuations and means of payment
Prices for these services depend on the website and shopping line being used, so it is worth exploring before making a final decision on which company to order a service from.
As for payment options, there are multiple options, which can be:
- Using the shipping web envioscuba.ca
- Banco Metropolitano SA de Crédito y Comercio (BANDEC)
- Banco Popular de Ahorro (BPA)
The above is always linked to dollar accounts. Also VISA credit cards as long as they are not issued by US banks.
