which site did u make ur purchase at? It's ok for amazon to deliver to a shipment forwarder's address which differs from your credit card.

unless u are referring to direct shipment to SGD, and you keyed in a different address from ur credit card

What does direct shipment to SGD mean? @.@

I was buying from a website, E.L.F, that only has 2 countries (US and Canada) for billing address.

So i keyed in the US address from hopshopgo for the billing information and shipping information =_=|||

direct shipment to SGD means, that company does international deliveries to Singapore. apparently not so for your merchant website.

I don't think it's wrong. hopshopgo provides you a US address such that they can collect your purchase on your behalf and then send to you again. That's what they do for people who wish to purchase from merchants within US/Canada but do not have international shipping systems established.

Shouldn't need to cancel.

It's the wrong way of making the order. Billing address refers to the address that your credit card bill is sent to you and not any other address.

However, if your intention was to try and see if your order would get through even though the merchant seemingly only accepts US and Canada issued credit cards, that's another matter altogether.

Yes, the billing address and the shipping address are two separate things. Amazon allows you to use a different address for each.

Some companies don't have their system set up to allow non-US credit cards as for instance their online form only allows you to input a US address, but many of them offer a way around this that is ok with company policy:

Here is an example:
International Orders - Best Buy

Actually there is a reason why there is no option to select a billing country other than the US or Canada for many merchants - they do not accept international orders. There are some exceptions though, which the merchants would usually state under their order policies.

Just a note that you might be interested: Best Buy will not ship to known international freight forwarders, even though they will accept international credit cards.

That is strange indeed. Not sure why they wouldn't ship to international forwarders, seems like a bad way of limiting a company's business. Amazon for instance has no such qualms.

On a side note, the worst possible experience I have ever had was with this iparcel company that Amazon tends to use. They are the worst of the worst, even putting in fake information about attempting to deliver a package to you even though this never happened.

It's not unusual for a package to arrive in Singapore and still not be delivered to you a week later... or even longer.

How exactly did you lose your stuff? Was it a courier issue (leaving the goods at your doorstep) or something like that?

The best way is to use vPost's new feature which is delivery to any post office (not just the Eunos one), this way you can pick up your parcels at your convenience and not have to wait around for the delivery man to show up. Also, you can go to the post office on Sat/Sun if it's open on those days and collect (vPost will deliver to a post office on Saturday).

I think he meant, delivery to the vPost USA address failed.
I have given up on them long ago.
