There are lots of online shopping websites in Nepal and they are good. They provide lots of different goods, items in time at a reasonable price but we have to accept the reality that no website has everything. Nepali sites don’t have all the things we want, need or desire. Another fact is that, sometimes ordering some goods from abroad is still cheaper than buying here. We know all the troubles and problems so we have listed few websites we know. This is the list of some eCommerce, Online Shopping websites that ship to Nepal.
We regularly ask our friends and relatives living in abroad to bring us good that we need. The problem is that they come less frequently like once a year or once in two year. That is a very big time to wait and not a good solution of you want something urgent.
There are types of shipping like regular, express and expedited. The fees are dependent upon the delivery period product weight, company and location. We have come up with some good and trusted online shopping websites for you. Everything aside, the main problem can be payment for almost all people. For that, we suggest asking people with PayPal, International Master or Visa cards.

Amazon and Ebay
These guys are the giant of this industry and yes they do ship to Nepal. The solution or the difficulty is finding the supplier who delivers to Nepal or Globally. Finding a supplier who has the required product and also export can be a bit difficult but not much. Some take charge while some deliver for free.
Note: Our Suggestion is to use P.O. Box if possible because there are cases that the product is misplaced when there is no P.O. Box.
Above listed websites are famous and supposed to be very credible. We have seen them bring products to Nepal in good quality. However, we don’t give any guarantee or take any responsibility for the products delivery and their condition. We are just sharing our knowledge.
The major problem we felt is payment and it is serious. NRB still doesn’t allow international online payment. You will have to ask for help from friends and relatives in this matter. At least they won’t have to bear the burden of bringing stuff with them. This list is small, if you have good experience with other companies drop it in the comments below and we will add it.
