Meet the Founder


I’m Phillis Chan, the Founder of Big Apple Buddy, a shopping concierge helping consumers around the world get the latest products as soon as they're released in the US.

There's nothing worse than reading a review about the latest gadget or seeing an Instagram post featuring a trending fashion item, only to find out that you have to wait months or even years for it to become available in your country. If you live outside the U.S., I'm sure you've found yourself in this situation before. In fact, it's probably what brought you to our site to begin with!

Being from Melbourne, Australia, I too completely understand the frustration of delayed product releases and international shopping barriers. You should have the opportunity to buy the latest products when they hit American shelves, regardless of where you are in the world.

Big Apple Buddy was created to make that opportunity a reality. With our unique personalized
shopping service, you can now get the latest products quickly and hassle-free.

We understand that you're a busy professional with limited time, so we promise to make the process as easy as possible for you. All you have to do is tell us what item you want to buy and we'll take care of the rest. We'll personally source your item and ship it to your door in as a little as a few days. It's really that simple!

Being based in New York, we have unlimited access to US online stores and ship to over 100 countries around the world. If you need help buying the latest phone, sneakers or designer handbag from America, or simply have a question, please feel free to get in touch. We'd love to hear from you!
