Schengen/Luxembourg, March 26, 2021 – To support distribution partners, PM-International has already been offering free shipping for end customer orders since April 2020. The offer is valid worldwide for all orders over €50 and will be continued from April 1, 2021 without time limit.
When the pandemic started last year, the direct sales industry had to face major challenges by literally overnight. Even during the lockdown of the first wave, distribution partners were stuck at home and unable to supply their customers. PM-International responded immediately and introduced free shipping for end customers in spring 2020. Demand has been strong: since then, the number of online customer orders taking advantage of the offer has increased up to fivefold.
Both the buying behavior of customers and the customer service provided by distribution partners have undergone a lasting change. Presentations largely take place via video conference from home and orders are placed online. With advancing digitalization, working online is becoming more and more important and will continue to have a decisive impact on everyday work in direct sales. For this reason, PM-International now offers unlimited free shipping for end customers.
Rolf Sorg, CEO and Founder of PM-International, sees the free shipping offer as an investment in its Team Partners: “Free shipping makes daily business easier for our distribution partners and offers a flexible way of working from home without restrictions. This underlines PM-International’s business model: we offer our Team Partners a unique opportunity to generate instant extra income, with no risk, at any time and from anywhere.”
