Citibank Borderlinx, OCBC ShopOnline, and DBS Online Shopping all use COMGATEWAY.

I have successfully shipped my mobo and scythe shuriken from OCBC ShopOnline. For comparison, I have just ordered my CPU, Memory and HDMI cable from Borderlinx. DBS doesn't seem to be user friendly.

borderlinx better rate but only for Citi CC holder.
vPost only worth to use when shipping item not more than 2Kg(with the 12% discount pay with UOB credit card promotion.)
above 2kg better go for borderlinx, they having the best shipping rate now(if without any discount) + free Concierge Service.

Comgateway..can search for feedback~~

Do not use CGW for larger items !
I just found out the hard way that their calculation of Freight costs for GST is not the actual freight cost you pay, but they use the weight in kg x S$9.85. There can be a big difference, in my case over S$40. I thought that my shipment CIF value was below $400, end up have to pay GST for whole shipment !

So can i say that vpost is only good when it comes to under 2kg category due to the discount? Without discount, it would be too expensive? Haha. What about the customer service? Do they reply fast as compared to borderlinx or comgateway? Their delivery time? My greatest worry is that my stuffs will be lost during delivery or wad. Haha.

Where do you buy your electronics? I'm always afraid that the parcel size is bigger than the product size (e.g. Amazon) cos shipping is dependent on volumetric weight.
