I mentioned earlier that this is EzShop, which is a more expensive method, as it uses Ezbuy’s exchange rate, known to be quite ridiculous. A cheaper method is to purchase directly from Taobao using the Taobao app in RMB yourself and ship it to the EzShip address. Using Transferwise or Revolut by paying in RMB will save you quite alot on the exchange rate because $1k it’s a significant amount. Even after including GST(calculated upon on what you declare) the price is still within the $1.2k range, everything included.
Sorry but i am not sure what EzShip means when i went from Ezship and it leads me to EzBuy.

if it doesn't trouble u, can u gpgt the price, steps to do and everything so everyone here can benefit from it?

I tested, the lack of GST exclusion worries me.

Taobao link

Price before GST - the breakdown as follows;


T&C for EzShip shows it will be imposed means price don't include i believe.

contrary to what i have paid for...

Shopee: $1599 (before discount)
Taobao: $1298.70 (Shipping + Insurance) - am not sure if this includes GST

the difference is close to $300.30. Not sure of any hidden costs.



also; if he is willing to share earlier I would have purchased from Taobao. Since he only shared it after I buy and the Shopee seller managed to deliver to it within couple of days... I would just treat it as

1. loss cost
2. express delivery
Imo I won’t bother buying from Taobao directly if difference only 300. Shipping from China is from sea. It’s freaking horrible. You can expect it to come in 1-3 months if nothing goes wrong. By then wfh probably over already.

EzBuy offers 2 types of services.
EzShop and EzShip
EzShop is where they make the purchase for you, from start to finish including shipping. And you pay in SGD
EzShip is where you make the purchase yourself in RMB, and they just ship it to you. It will involve using 2 to 3 apps.

It will be a very very tedious process for me to post SS of all the steps and everything. As it involves me showing both my Taobao and ezbuy account details and shipping information. What i suggest you do is to start by trying to ship something cheap yourself and get familiar with the whole process once, using EzShip. Or you can read up on EzBuy’s website on how the EzShip process works.

Depending on which forwarder u use, they like to consolidate before sending out. Ship 1 20ft container is $xxxx be it full or empty, so might as well make it full then ship out.

i think u can mask those details. rather u spend time flooding your stance to people with words, I think the more convincing way is to show proof, don't you think?

where i am coming from is you said you have done it before so having screen captures of those pages would be faster and more accurate than what we've could see.

but if you think is impossible, i won't push.

my 2 cents, hopefully, i don't come across as nasty nor begging which wasn't my intention.

If you remember vpost concierge, think EZshop is similar. You only need to deal with them. They will deal with the seller/retailer.

EZship is like normal vpost. They give you a CN address. Then you make your purchase at the retailer and send to the CN address.

I will email them to clarify. But as posted earlier, a recent purchase from mid last year is a Made in USA one.
The last time I went when they told me about the Aerons were USA made again was in the last two years.

But I do remember very clearly that when I was shopping for my classic Aerons quite some time ago, they were made in China. At that time, their prices were really steep and not worth it.

Actually I did a quick check on my email, I did email them before but I was asking about the Sayl chair in 2012. On the email, they confirm that they are made in China.

Above 1.2k - and "1188" is assuming i could get such a good exchange rate.



in order to get RMB5879



i need to exchange 1168.40 + 16.60 exchange = $1185

The other time the one i posted was $1144, maybe a different seller from the one you are using. and also, like i said for the gst, done at your own discretion.

Anyway if you want to make it sound like im lying then by all means, dont buy... I dont earn anything from sharing this anyway. Since the start till now with me sharing all these details, I havent heard a word of thanks from you yet. And it seemed like as if it is my duty to provide the service.

Some of the other people thanked me even when I just simply recommend some info of the chairs, or linked them to the a warranty policy page.
