Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0014648A1] A computer-implemented method delivers goods purchased from a vendor web site without revealing the customer's identity or physical shipping address to the vendor computer (140). The method includes associating the identity and physical location of each customer with computer (100) linking information which is stored at a secure computer such as a secure provider computer (110) or banking computer (150). The customer computer (100) anonymously connects to the vendor web site (140) and orders goods without revealing his actual identity or physical location. The goods are given by the vendor to a common carrier in a package encoded by the vendor with a transaction identifier or a customer object. The common carrier retrieves the identity and address of the customer from the secure provider computer (110) using the transaction identifier or customer object and delivers the package to the customer's physical address.
