If you ain't gonna be in your house for whatever reason, and don't want parcel post provider sending delivery back to either the sender or HQ, you purchase a postal address/box at the Parcel Motel and they deliver it there. You collect it there.

I guess its the parcel equivelant of a PO Box?

Is there any service yet available that will allow Amazon to deliver to ROI via a base in NI.?

I think there was talk of one being set up in Enniskillen.

for anyone interested It's up and running and taking deliveries now

I've placed two orders with uk websites both with free delivery to the parcelmotel newtownabbey address but who wanted to charge a premium for Irish delivery.

saved myself 30euro in the process

if they re looking for a uk credit card .. use the first few lines of your address that is attached to the credit card then use the postcode of the parcel motel in the UK.. this worked for me using Dell outlet UK

I was trying to buy something from ebay and it didnt work - bacause it was limited only to UK(Excludes: Channel Islands, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Scilly Isles, Scottish Highlands, Scottish Islands, Northern Ireland) and the address of parcel motel is in NI.

I was under the impression that with EBay you can only get goods delivered to the address that you are registered with? I thought it had something to do with the way EBay and PayPal are linked. Am I wrong??

From a Sligo perspective I can confirm all up and running. First parcel ordered from Amazon.co.uk on Thursday evening last (delivery via Newtownabbey) and received text this morning (Tuesday) to give me my pin to collect from Sligo. Collected it this evening when it suited me. Great Service
