Good news! Got 20% discount code for Borderlinx but limited to the first 1000 shipments worldwide as their FB has reached 20K fans. I just used it 3 mins ago and it is still working. Code code 20K_FBFANS
Don't bother with Borderlinx, took me 5-6 emails (customer service not at receiving hub and can't tell you sh*t about your items) and 1 week for my items from Amazon (delivered in 2 days from UPS tracking) to be updated to my goods awaiting shipment list. Have to check on their website some more, they don't email you after updating your goods awaiting shipment.
Probably another 4-5 days for their partner DHL to send to SGP. Total time almost 2 weeks, I say don't bother, worst forwarder I have even used, cancelling my account. Citibank please don't recommending such a crap partner.

My cleanser is 16.9oz. they just delivered 1 unit with 8.4oz. I checked with merchant directly although this order is through BuyForMe... they might deliver 2 unit of 8.4oz.. the invoice is still 16.9oz cleanser at 1 unit.. I suspect either merchant delivered 2 unit of 8.4oz and comgateway lost 1 of it in their warehouse because they suppose to check when receive the parcel from merchant since the package weight is exactly 0.5kg for 16.9oz in the shipment record. if only 1 unit of 8.4oz it should be less than 0.5kg. sigh... waiting for one night to reach they through live chat but the live chat always suddenly drop in the middle of the conversation. email also haven't replied..
I already settled everything with the merchant, they are willing to refund the difference or ship additional 8.4oz, now just wait for CGW to see if they will compensate me with deliver this back to me at no cost (since this is a BuyForMe order, under their name and address). I just forwarded them the merchant's email to them and told them my decision. But CGW said still need 2 business days to get back to me... The merchant is very responsive but CGW.... CGW is the only one who opened the parcel. Let's see how they handle this... have to wait until next Tuesday, arr...

I think CGW support is not doing a good job. Their live chat representative always give copy/paste answers.

Agree.. they lost my parcel and now they are very evasive in their replies.

I can't really sleep well last night, busying contacting the merchant directly
Ask CGW to acknowledge my emails also not news...
The best experience i have is with MYUS, reliable, prompt response, they really repack + consolidate everything for you to reduce the shipping weight (but only limited to 3 parcels for free), but even after 20% discount (signed up with VISA card) is still very expensive... next time if buy expensive stuff, will use MYUS..
Let see how CGW handle my issue before we made any conclusion...
I will keep you guys posted..
Wish me luck..

CGW has lost my parcels before and was pissed with them but they have eventually returned my money for the lost parcel. BDL overcharged me because they recorded the dimensions wrongly and recorded an item twice. I have to chat & emailed them more than 30 times over a period of more than 3 months and even that, they refused to acknowledge their mistake. I even have to involve DHL and Ciitbank before they finally refund me.

I have stopped using BDL for about one year and now I am back with them, and CGW. Both have their pro and cons, just need exercise caution. Will use vpost only if I need to buy from Japan/China.

alright, say i've made an order through CGW and then i canceled that order, how long do i need to wait for the amount held to be released to my posb savings account or is it immediate?

called the bank and they insist i provide them with a void receipt from the merchant with merchant's id.. how do i go about resolving this? i hv no intention of waiting 14 fking days.

If bank insist the receipt means the comgateway hasn't refunded the money yet. Last time my BuyForMe order was not successfully placed they will not charge my credit card. If comgateway has refunded the $ to your account you should be able to see this within 2-3 business days. I always get my shares proceed from US to DBS within 2-3 business days.
