What sort of sales charges is Borderlinx charging? When I use their calculator, no sales charges is indicated. What I googled is only certain company charges the tax:

http://myspreeshop.blogspot.com/2008...g-to-ohio.html

BY the way, vpost is cheaper for small items, Amazon usually states the shipping dimension plus the shipping weight as well. I think vpost will charge the higher of the two.


Currently have an order pending from vpost, will see how it goes, but looks like Borderlinx is the way to go.

Borderlinx does not charge sales tax, its whether the website you are buying from charge the sales tax or not. Newegg for example doesn't charge sales tax.

Borderlinx is using DHL so you can track the shipping once the stuffs reach borderlinx US address. Shipping from borderlinx US to SG only take 4-5 days. I don't think Vpost can provide the same kind of service.

Yeah indeed.

Had pretty good experience with Borderlinx, the stuff came in fast. Usually DHL will 'overquote' the ETA by around one day. So you have more reason to be happy... assuming you forget what I wrote in a flash.

now vPost with promotion below 5kg with UOB 20% discount still ok, still can fight with borderlinx. once above 5kg borderlinx is winner.
1 thing borderlinx damn xian..die die must use Citi CC. if go apply 1yr only use 1~2 times for shipping not worth the trouble.

my 2nd item from amazon reached vPost US address Last Thr 18/12, i paid the shipping fee on Fri once they bill me but the parcel now still in US.
my 1st item they shipped to spore before i pay the bill, now the status shown its in spore but no update all!
if i ship more often from US i sure go get Citi CC and use borderlinx.
