Just checking. If a package exceeds SGD300, how will the GST be calculated? 7% will be charged to CWG?

it's not SGD300, it's SGD400. And that is the CIF value, i.e. Cost + Insurance + Freight value. Lastly, it's not CWG, it's CGW, and yes, CGW will automatically determine the GST amount, and bill you for it right up front when you pay for shipping.

Anybody taken advantage of Amazon's free shipping offer for items over $125?

Amazon.com announces free shipping to Singapore | TODAYonline

Why 2kg not 1.8kg?

Given that you have shipped countless of packages, I still don't get why you are complaining about this.
Shipping are done in blocks of 0.5kg each so it will often be rounded up to the highest 0.5kg because it makes no sense to round down to 1.5kg if your package weighs 1.75kg. And this is on their website :


Even if you want to get a repack, a minimum is a 2kg difference between volumetric and actual weight to qualify. You can always ask them to transfer it into a box at an additional cost.

Its like you are buying something without even knowing what you are buying for.

AND I AM NOT THEIR EMPLOYEE. -- end rant

You should try shipping with Borderlinx instead.

If you shipped 6 boxes of 1.1kg to CGW, they'll charge you 9.0kg (1.5 * 6 = 9kg).
The same 6 boxes shipped to Borderlinx only comes to 5.5kg (1.1 * 6 = 6.6 ~ 7kg)

CGW rounds up the weight of *each package*; but BL only rounds up the final weight instead.

The only disadvantage of BL, is you need a Citibank CC.
