Ever Rich Duty Free launched pre-order services through its website in 2016 and until now, pick-up has only been available at Taoyuan International Airport.

From 26 August to 14 November, the retailer is offering NT$400 (just under US$13) cash back for every purchase of NT$7,500 (US$250) made via pre-order online. With additional discounts on credit card payments and special promotional prices, savings run to around -30% off key products and gift sets from around 80 brands, said Ever Rich Duty Free.

In addition to online-only discounts and Ever Rich Duty Free exclusive gifts, special discount days take place on the 7th, 17th and 27th of each month during the campaign.

The company said: “The primary mission of Ever Rich is to surpass passengers’ expectations and provide services that are in line with international standards.”

“Under this concept, Ever Rich Duty Free Online was born. Breaking time and space constraints, the airport duty free shops will be moved to the passenger’s computer and mobile devices to provide 24/7 service. As long as there are aircraft taking off and landing, Ever Rich employees will provide the pick-up service for the pre-ordered goods,” the company continued.

Highlighting tourism growth in the territory last year, with figures hitting 11 million, and strong passenger growth at Songshan Airport, where traffic reached a record 6.2 million in 2018, Ever Rich said that it was reacting to changing consumers and growth in demand.

It said: “Ever Rich continues to be innovative and combine digital trends such as e-commerce and mobile payment to create a more convenient and efficient service model, and provide customers with a new service experience.”
