anyone using myus.com? apparently they charge by real weight (not volumetric weight) and amex plat members can sign up for their premium account for free, and also get 50% off their discounted shipping fees until 31 jan 16

ran a few numbers with the 50% off:

1kg - Fedex Economy @ USD 24.92
2kg - DHL Express @ USD 31.95
3kg - DHL Express @ USD 35.97
4kg - DHL Express @ USD 40.45
5kg - FedEx Priority@ USD 42.42
6kg - Fedex Economy @ USD 47.45

May I know, is GShipExpress able to BuyForMe, if I submit the form say, Saturday? (i saw someone bought A & F so that must be non FF address)

for HSG/CGW, their chat and BuyForMe is everyday. i tested it many times over many sales already. but yeah, getting expensive, made worse by USD.

When I submitted 65Daigou for an important item, I didn't know they don't work on Sat and Sun, i missed the deal.to make matters worse they ask for another 10% commission for non FF address. become same price as CGW, speed of turtle.

thankyou

just got this. CGW got $50 off with DBS? if real, then how lucky.. i just bought alot of stuff. lol. anw sharing

[/LIST]
great if you manage to get it/hit the min. even the CSO was apologetic for the lack of good promotion.

100 dollars is not difficult to hit if group buy or buy for whole family of say 4-6. me split the order between Gship, 65 and CGW this time, test water and reduce cost.

Yes, we won't know for sure but we can gauge whether we would be charged GST by expecting the size of the package (and to a lesser extent the actual weight of the item and the exchange rate).



Cost of package (product value + US sales tax + US domestic shipping charge)
Insurance
Freight (shipping charge from US to SG)

GST is liable as long as the CIF as explained is more than SGD 400.
hi guys
sorry for digging this up

just wanna check, my shopping estimated is about USD 260, 3 packages
so far 2 packages would cost me 2.5kg of freight, i have 1 more OTW

there is no way i can split into 2 shipments to avoid GST right ?
and splitting into 2 shipments is more expensive then GST itself ?

i estimate for 3.5 kg....
base 13.40 + (0.91 x 35) = SGD 45.25

hence declared cost + shipping.......
(260 x 1.40) + 45.25 = SGD 409.25

You can split different packages to be shipped at different times, i.e., different shipments. You arrange shipping yourself, so you decide which packages you want to ship out. And one more thing to note, GST is not just 7% NETT, there is CGW admin fee of 5% based on the GST amount.

My VPOST status now is "Delivery could not be completed as new address could not be located". Try to contact them but waited on the line for 30 min but no one pick up

Err so can someone summarize what/who does which online sites best? For example breakdown by USA/China/etc? What about buying from Japan or UK/Europe by the way?

I would advise not to use VPOST for oversea shipping. Bought 4 pairs of shoes (3 is the same type) in the USA delivered on 4th of December by Amazon; till date until now item is still on hold without any valid reason.

Currently only 1 pair is allowed to ship over, Shipping cost is ALOT higher than projected, 1 pair charge as 2.4kg @ $35.24.

But the real issue is your package will be on hold for no reasons, till date i cant do anything. Called VPOST, their outsource oversea call center cant do anything about it.

Use any other forwarder for ease of problems!

It's a small battery, no issue, any forwarder should be able to ship them without issues. Otherwise, noone would be able to ship in phones/tablets/gadgets/power banks/etc.
