they split my parcel into 2 without informing, only 1 dragonlink tracking was reflected on their website. my total was 20+kg, the one that was delivered was only 3.5kg, so i refused to sign it because no head no tail. then around 8 hrs later princess replied say its because my parcel too big thats why it was split into 2. how lame is this excuse? why would anyone in the right mind split it into 3.5kg & 17.5kg? if its split then its only logical that its 10kg/10kg. it was only then a new dragonlink tracking was given to me, and when i went to check, there was no info at all meaning the parcel hasnt even left their warehouse. i paid on the 29 sept, now after so many donkey days my parcel still in china? just wow lor. and whether or not i will receive my other 17.5kg parcel is still a question mark. wont be surprised that it will be incomplete again. used so many forwarders before this is the first time such thing happened. def wont be using them again. so scary.
erm, it looks like they re facing shortage of planes to ship. phew, i will avoid them during 11.11

Max weight per parcel set by normal shipper is at least 30kg. So its strange that they will say its too huge

what about Led lights? via sensitive any issue?
wanted to send via air(86of bugis) coz need it for my renovation relatively fast but help desk advised to go via sea, say air ship is very strict recently.
Anyway air ship sentitive is still slightly cheaper than sea in my case.

on a sidenote, saw a number of complaint on 86of in earlier posts, i had similar experience for taobao2sg(i think is cm.86of.com), updating of website is really slow (especially during the golden week, requested for shipment on 29/9, only sent on board ytd and info on website is still shown as packing even now), customer helpdesk also abit slow as well, but helpful so far.
Trying out the bugis branch this time round, so far so long, helpdesk is responsive(although clementi one is more friendly) , website update received package within the same day. fingers crossed everything works out well.
If its LED light strips then easier to ship via air. If its light tube I need to check tomorrow as you know lately AA plane exploded at HK airport so alot of new changes. I will update you tomorrow. Should be possible still.

Those smaller players will alway have such issue as they only wanna buy those last min lelong offer air space so their goods will alway have to wait for that offer. Big players buy air space ahead of time so use or not use still have to pay for it. So the likely hood offload from the plane is very minimum.

If its discount coupons which u get from the shop u can still get it from them I believe. They do not limit to 1 per customer. Some items that offer free shipping I purchase many times as each checkout I use 1 coupon then pay it then buy another same item using the another coupon which I get using the same account as well.
thks, yup store coupon can re-claim.
But mine this time is tmall storewide coupon. Use to be able to change payment mode, now not even in alipay inside.
Cancel order, can claim back coupon, what did you think

If its not special discount then possible to claim it back. You can ask the Tmall CSO first.

We does air and sea shipping and also purchasing service free of commissions now. Should be ok for those for air sensitive but I will recheck it again later in the day to confirm. I am doing alone now not with him

Max weight per parcel set by normal shipper is at least 30kg. So its strange that they will say its too huge
exactly, im pretty sure my parcel was just left out due to their carelessness. they dont want admit so they push the blame say it was due to custom limitation or whatever crap. this is what they said, do u think it makes sense? you're expert here.



@Kaylin, curious what item is that?
and could it be seller was the one splitted?
the item that arrived at my doorstep, the 3.5kg was some bathroom lights, its just one box from a single seller so i dont think its the seller that splitted. because immediately when i feedbacked to them they gave me another tracking no. u can see from here i have 2 tracking no.



i went to check on the status on the latest tracking number it shows my parcel "in transit" which means to say the rest of my items are still in china. if its not due to their oversight that they left out my parcel then how come its still in china? if its really true that they split it because its too heavy they would have shipped both parcels together, not only after i tell them.

its true they are damn slow. this is my 2nd time using them. i paid on 29 sept and on the 9th oct only 1 small box arrived at my doorstep. the rest of my items were still in china, wtf is this. first time using them it also took around 8-9 days, a far cry from their advertised 3 days. now i need to find another forwarder to use.

From my experience is they left out that small parcel. Firstly custom if they really checked that parcel they will put it everything back into that parcel n paste a custom seal on it. If you see any custom seal then you will know that parcel had been checked. Secondly it doesnt make any sense that the parcel is over valued based on those things which you had bought. Thirdly if they split your parcel into 2 they will have to pay their last mile in SG twice the fees.
