Thanks for sharing, i have the same problem with you. I will avoid using Vpost if the item is urgent and once you encounter problem you can wait for like 20days and it's not solve but WAIT. Even though there are discount code. Don't be tempted. I'm sure there are slightly efficient sites that we can count on and price are pretty competitive
Yes I used vPost for the 1st shipment cause there was a $30 discount code. I still had some items that only made it for a second shipment which I paid almost $40. It is not cheap at all.

Before this I have been using comgateway/hopshopgo countless times with no issues. All packages reached within 1-2 weeks.

vpost should only be used if you are not in a hurry and you are sure of package dimensions cos got discount. If need to be quick and/or unsure of package domensions go with comgateway and purchase the live quote guarantee.

live quote is based on per shipment package

Want to ship some items from USA (total actual weight between 1kg to 2kg).

Does comGateway charge based on the actual weight or overcharge by playing with volumetric weight?

For this month, which is a better bank to use for comGateway -- DBS or Citibank? Does POSB GO! Debit MasterCard qualify for the DBS promotion?

The live quote is an insurance against over weight. the max you pay will be the actual weight + the live quote fee.

People, please don't use vPost.

This is the tracking for one of my item:

Date Time Status
04/09/2013 10:37:38 PM Package Paid
06/09/2013 01:10:21 AM Package sent out from U.S.A/Japan/EUROPE
09/09/2013 06:44:53 PM *Estimated arrival in S`pore Airport Processing Ctr (11/09/2013)
11/09/2013 06:20:11 PM Arrival in S`pore
11/09/2013 06:22:13 PM Depart from S`pore Airport Processing Ctr

I have another 3 packages stuck at the same status since 19/9. The delivery time within Singapore is taking longer than shipment from USA.

Customer service email reply to this yesterday was "We have raised a request to the concern department to check on the status of the item. We request you to kindly wait for an update." Basically after waiting for 2 weeks, they are asking me to continuing waiting.

No concrete course of action taken, no approx waiting time. The items of the packages cost a few hundred dollars. I don't know if they will refund the declared value if the packages are lost. More importantly I can't reorder the item but can only wait for it to hopefully arrive someday.

Agreed ~Vpost really love to waste people's time and take peoples money. Talk a lot and no action, false promises!
Last year they have requested me to pay SGD30, make a money order and send to them at their HQ for an administrative fee for them to return my package arrived at UK address to a merchant in London. However they wrongly sent to Singapore the package that was supposed to be returned to the merchant in london(i have many packages from the same merchant at UK address) . Therefore i asked for the SGD30 to be refunded to me. After more than 10 calls in nearly 2 months and numerous emails as well and wait time more than 3 months after that, nothing happened.No news, no calls no emails(other than their useless promotional emails) until today! VPOST is a BIG NO_NO
