Company Overview

World Options offer premium carrier services and website integration tools to SMEs across the UK. Combined customer parcel volume allows World Options to purchase carrier services at significantly reduced prices. World Options franchisees pass these savings on to businesses by introducing them to our online shipping tool called the Portal. Franchisees then make margin on every parcel they send to both domestic and international destinations.

Franchise Overview

World Options has been operating since 2003 and franchising since 2012. Its business model is built upon an American model first started in the late 1980s; it’s tried and tested and provides an opportunity for uncapped income.

World Options have promoted the same model to the UK and propelled it into the 21st century, with no geographical working restrictions and solid carrier relationships. Most importantly, World Options owns the UK’s first multicarrier integration tools for website shopping carts, enabling franchisees to benefit from a global, 24/7, 365 days a year income.
