I will be using 65daigou to ship Amazon non-FSSG items.

Seriously, I dun want to spend like $10 on domestic US-US shipping lor..
So i'm looking for someone in the east to tompang with my order.

Anyone?
If interested, pls pm me with the links. Orders will close as soon as USD $35 is met.

Eligible for those items with this mentioned: FREE Shipping on orders over $35
Not for those who fuss about service/response. But 65dg good, almost free for envelope size items (eg. button batteries, flashcards,etetc).
I bought hearing aids battery, weight was 0.05kg, vwt 0.00). When consolidated with otter parcel, the total chargeable is the aggregate weight. The small item doesn't count with a minimum of 0.5kg.

vPost very tokong. Over charge by 3kg! Awesome!

Last month, I bought some items from US and used vPost to ship to Singapore. As their measurement, volumetric weight is 2.95KG and actual weight is 6KG. After I received the parcel and

re-weight it, volumetric weight is correct, but the actual weight is only 3KG. That means vPost overcharged me for 3KG!

I contacted customer service via email regarding this issue, and after more than 3 weeks in exchanging email and phone calls. Finally, CSO admit the error, and will refund me the

overcharged amount as store credit only! It's ridiculous!! If I have no future shipment, then I would never able to use this credit. And even I am very unsatisfied with their service, I have to

use their service next time as there is some outstanding credit. What the ...??

The case still unresolved as I refused to receive store credit. Is anyone know how can I get back my money? File a case to CASE(Consumers Association of Singapore) or ...?

Thanks!

To file with CASE, you have to become their member. Pay $$$$.
And in the end, they will tell you to go find a lawyer.

CASE is totally useless. Don't waste your time.

Here's my situation. I bought a pair of shoes from Amazon UK and had it shipped to my Vpost UK address. On Amazon's tracking page, it shows that the item has been delivered and i noticed a statement which read "parcel was left in mail room, the parcel is delivered to John" So i thought all was fine until i went to check my Vpost account and discovered there were no packages under my account.

Am i screwed? Any others with similar experiences? Thanks for all the help!

Its not the actual weight you have to worry about, it's the volumetric weight. Amazon just started packing things in big boxes with multi layers of protection (bubble wrap/paper for cushioning).
