Comgateway sent me a code which I left it idling and when I just decided to use it, it can't be used.

Borderlinx disappointed me badly recently. I've been using them for years (quite smoothly most of the time, except for 1 lost package) but this recent experience has turned me off Borderlinx for good.

I bought some Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers off Amazon (worth US$100). BL refused to ship it to me (they said it had some magnets or whatever which prohibited shipment by air). After several arguments with customer service, they said I have no choice, either discard it or reship it to another address. Reshipment costs US$20 admin and US$15 shipping. Since my friend was visiting in the States, I said fine, whatever, reship it to my friend's hotel address. Paid and gave them the address on 20th May, they took 4 bloody days to ship it out on 24th May. By the time it reached the address on 27th, my friend had already left the States. -.-

Together with their gradually increasing prices = Last time I ever use Borderlinx.

Ordered bloomingdale's through CGW's buyforme service and they tell me the merchant may have delivered to the wrong address?! Really FML, hope it's not true. Otherwise I would have waited for nothing.

Used HopShopGo and chose Standard Shipping.
Realised they using Fedex unlike last time.
If I chose Express Shipping, they will use DHL ?

you have to email customer service and tell them your preferred carrier is DHL and not to ever use fedex.

otherwise they will pick at random.

the only diff btw express/standard shipping is cgw's/hsg's handling time

Personally, I don't think Borderlinx is at fault here because speakers are somewhat difficult to ship into Singapore if you refer to this thread here:

http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/ho...s-3726945.html
and
Prohibited items

In any case, their shipping agent is DHL which has their own shipping restrictions which Borderlinx (and other 3rd party forwarders) have to abide by. I think there's always a risk to ship things into Singapore (especially on items that Amazon does not offer International Free Shipping with, e.g. speakers and receivers). That is why I try to use Amazon's Free Shipping directly nowadays - less fees and more straightforward.

As for their shipping speed, I think a week is reasonable for unique cases such as yours. Amazon takes 5-7 days to deliver items to the third party forwarders too (not including the time they take to process the orders).

P.S. I did discard one of my items through Borderlinx before, i.e. my move dual shot controllers for PS3 because it was shaped as a gun -.- But I still use Borderlinx or Comgateway from time to time.

Yes it does, you only requires a valid email address and a valid credit/debit card for the fund to be deducted on. Paypal guarantees 100% protection against unauthorized payments from your account. You do not require to key in your card number, expiry date, security code.
