I always use borderlessbuy by Amex (comgateway) since I got an Amex platinum. Borderlinx if you have Citibank card also not too bad. But I feel borderlessbuy offer better services like free 60days storage, guaranteed express shipping and I never have problem with them.

Ordered with 65dg using their buy for Me service. Been 2.5 weeks and still no status updates from them lol.
trying 65daigou for 1st time; item delivered on 8dec, finally shows up in their database today [17dec]

waiting for another item, then will ship back to singapore; wonder if can reach before Xmas; heng is "present" for myself, and not something for others, e.g. gift exchange...

btw, you can enquire on status by clicking on the "My Enquiry" under "Customer Service", after logging in on 65daigou

USD265*1.3051 (from here)=SGD345.85
345.85+153.44 = SGD499.29; hence GST.
yeah someone else in EDMW told me about that. now I know.

what a rip off ,i ordered from amazon . The shipping is only $18.45 for a mid size D-lux messenger bag.

i will NEVER use CGW or forwarders unless it's unavoidable. pfft.

the 65daigou china operations were ok for me; used both ship-for-me & buy-for-me, quite fast.

problem is they are swamped at their US facility. they had a facebook status update on this... claimed that they will use Express shipping at their own cost to ship to singapore

quite a few angry customers...

and i was about to post that can save at least $10 based on latest 15% promo. looks like this money is best not saved...

but maybe i'll take my chances for certain boutiques that banned the common CGW address. get the precious cargo late, better than out of reach!

Thumbs up Review of CGW

Recently i bought HTC RE from BestBuy.com on US Cyber Monday via CGW BuyForMe service and it took 1 week for BestBuy standard shipping to CGW US address . Within 1 working day , CGW US ship out my item via Free Upgraded to DHL Express shipment and arrived at my house safely within 5 business days . Thumbs up for CGW ( Fast and Efficient Shipping ) , i'm first time user for using CGW forwarder .


FYI , currently CGW having DBS / POSB card holder promo USD 10 credit ( First Time registered User ) + 10% off

My 65dg parcel is now tagged under "preparing shipment". I can't seem to be able to pay for shipping for now. Any idea why?

65daigou finally managed to get my items to Singapore, after a long delay. Glad to be able to receive it before Xmas.

They have a "demo", showing the step-by-step process
http://www.65daigou.com/HowToStart#delivery-li#deliveryStep3

If still doesn't look right, can contact them via the "my enquiry" function under the "customer service" section

Typical especially they dun have a cost calculator like cgw .
"The amount of GST payable is computed based on the CIF value (cost, insurance and freight) of the goods plus all duties payable. The postage paid for the goods can be taken as freight and insurance charges. "

Wat a ripoff .might as well buy in spore or from amazon directly at that shipping cost . I tot hsg/cgw > vpost ? Singpost sucks!
