Shop and ship is a service provided by ICS which enables customers to buy from online shopping websites which are located outside their home country. For example, a customer residing in UAE can buy things from Indian shopping websites such as Flipkart, Amazon or Snapdeal and receive them in UAE through ICS shop and ship service.
