damn sian CGW refused my package which is a small leather good. then now my item got turned back to seller. i talked to their cso they cant check why it was refused say need to wait for US side to revert in freaking 2-3 business days, just a query they call them and ask will take so long meh.

then my item sent back to seller take another few days, so all delayed by so long and i already have a package at CGW with only 7 days left. jin pekcek.

i asked my seller theycant check also since item is still with usps.

anyone knows usually if item got refused what are the main reasons for refusal?? i asked CGW cso they say generally they dont refuse an item..wtf but they REFUSED my item what..how can give such nonsense answer, asked 2 cso all gave same nonsense, dont they have list of main reasons on generally why items get refused?? if anyone knows why they refuse parcels sometimes can let me know how come they will refuse a small leather good? so that i an rectify it asap. hais sian 1/2.

It would help if you told us what *exactly* are you trying to ship. Without that, we can only look at CGW's prohibited items list...

Flammable or Product with Alcohol Content (eg nail polish/remover, perfume, cologne, includes sample sizes, toner, sanitizer, paint, leafing pen, formburst product.. etc)
Batteries (contained in any appliance / made of lithium / wet cell)

What's your leather good and which vendor? I have shipped countless leather products such as wallets, card cases, belts here with ease.

Thinking about buying one of the cheap 39" Seiki 4k TVs but wonder what kind of costs and care will be used for shipping. Will really suck if I get a damaged TV after all the trouble.

Anyone used BL, CGW or VP for shipping a large tv before?

Did vpost provide live quote guarantee?
It's unfavorable asking tthemtto repack, as they refuse to repack once, citing safety reasons. (A 9" laptop sound bar, packed into a size of tv soundbar)

At cgw, if you pay for guarantee and did not buy or bought from another seller link, what happens thereafter?. And if pkg turns out smaller than quoted, then what? Thks.

Does comgateway refund CGW$ used to pay for a shipment if item arrived damaged?

My previous item arrived damaged and I told them to give me the refund as CGW$ as I still have parcel to send with them. Now the new item also arrived damaged again (sian!)

Trying to buy a watch since there is a massive Black Friday sale over at Amazon now. But the watch cannot be shipped direct, so I'm torn between vpost and CGW (never used Borderlinx before)

Personally I'm leaning towards vPost since the last time I used CGW, they screwed up my order, and I eventually lost the item. Thankfully got a refund since I used Paypal, but that was a horrible experience nonetheless. Granted, it was more than 2 years ago, so I don't know if CGW has cleaned up its operations since then.

Any recommendations between the 2?

hello hello, quick questions.

i got small items to be buy, probably less than 1kg. i got both citibank and posb cards. for shipping rates wise, i supposed borderlinux is slightly better?

for cost involve, basically i pay amazon for goods, they ship to US address(free), then from there i pay cgw or borderlinux ONLY shipping fee to singapore.

i also understand that fuel surcharge is already included in borderlinux, but cgw did not specify the surcharge as well as insurance cost. any ways i can estimate? my goods probably around 1kg



thanks

You could get a 5% discount and free upgrade to express shipping if you used your POSB card for CGW. Fuel surcharge is approx 10% this month and insurance is 0.65%.
Based on most bros here, cgw is slightly cheaper.

You could use this spreadsheet to calculate the approx cost with everything included before discount for CGW: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Amy3G6Ew6bpMdFE0dWEwanJBcldYLXVDVkF3NU9PUWc&usp=docslist_api

Sian.. If you have had to have a refund option as CGW$, AVOID it at all cost! Choose a refund as cheque instead. If you use CGW$ for subsequent transaction and something bad happened with that transaction, you can't get your money back!

I feel robbed and extremely pissed! LiveChat agent cannot help with anything with regards to refund "since it is pertaining to the refund department" while communication via email is very slow and the reply from Customer Service Associate changes everyday: yesterday say can get refund back, today say cannot, etc..

I am trying to get this portable charger from amazon but they don't ship directly here. This is my first time using this type of service. Can anyone tell me how does it work and which one is the safest and i'll receive my stuff eventually?
