A big NO to Comgateway. Sucks big time. I registered using HSBC Credit Card, charges anyhow one and no tel. number to call... Their CSO is those online one, like last time IRC chat.. Anyhow charge on my HSBC credit card and not my order... Sent email to Comgateway no reply... Call HSBC then they said this is a third party dispute... Not their problem... Just found out about Borderlinx, so now trying out my 7kg consolidated parcel... Will update on the service soon... Btw, why their condition is must use citibank credit card to pay the retailer for the stuff? Can't i use other credit card for the purchase and Citibank card for the freight charge?

if you need concierge service, and for qick OOS items ...CGW is better

boderlinx concierge service sucks. could never get the order thru cos they are too slow on ordering.

So if your doesn't need fast response, i'll still recommend boderlinx.

BTW both of them use DHL now

i second dat comgateway sucks big time.. 1) overestimate the assessable value of my items as they use fob calculation method instead of cif (ie. 1.24 * cost of goods) 2) and they got the cheek to charge me 5% admin fee for the gst payment.

in my opinion they prefer you to pay gst so that they can earn the admin fee. i have closed my account immediately. can't let people that i don't trust to handle the shipping.

for borderlinx any credit card for your purchase.. citibank credit card for your charges to ship to sgp (auto)..

wow i see this thread the 1st time. U know when asking for advice here what answers i get?? buy local dun buy overseas. How to buy local when they dun even sell it here,


Guys just a question.

newegg.com requires your credit card to be from the US yet i am sure u guys know a way around this. I tried with paypal and it does not work even though they support paypal.

I have vpost but then u know my shipping address obviously doesn;t tally with the billing since newegg wun even ship to singapore.


So how to buy and ship to SG from newegg if their credit card payment doesn't even have SG in it.

From what I read,

Borderlinx is the beset. Cheap, fast, flexible.
Comgateway is okay too.

Both borderlinx and Comgateway customers get a "unique address". No storing in one huge warehouse. Now everybody gets a pigeon hole.. their unique address.

And as for vpost, avoid at all costs. Expensive, slow, lousy.

Well personally I didn't try any of them. Just telling you what I read.
