I would like to know if it is possible to shop online without having a PN.
Now,I know you don`t need a PN to buy stuff online,but what I do not know is if you need a PN (for the address) to pick up the package at the post.

I would assume the package pickup is name sensitive and not name+address sensitive.

Thanks

My local ICA / Posten accepts a UK passport as proof of ID for collection, and so does the local Schenker agent.

By contrast, my local ICA does not. Only Swedish ID - and Swedish bank card for any payment. The local Schenker DFS etc, is OK though. Makes you think that, often, they make up their own rules for the sake of comfort. Either that, or they follow other directives to the bitter end. Possibly affected by the local population??

I want to order something from Escentual,a UK based store. When you order something from the UK,other than the shipment+products,do you need to pay any other import tax?

As a tourist, then possibly the best thing is for delivery in the home country. Personally, were I a tourist anywhere, I would not be doing on-lne shopping. But then, that is just me.

Here they wouldn't know anything about that round glass jar with the yellow top. That I used to buy down in Gbg at The Indian Food Shop, but now I get my supplies from The British Corner Shop in the UK. Mind you - the corner shop., when seen on Google Earth - is a big warehouse out in the country north of Bristol.
Anyway, I don't need a PN for shopping there, just the means to pay!! It is then delivered direct to my door.

Tell her you`ll miss her lol
I`ll buy straight from the retailers as I realized I don`t really trust online shopping when it comes to perfumes.
