Does Borderlinx require a citibank card to use? It says on the site that it accepts payments via Visa, mastercard, amex or paypal
Yes, payment has to be made by Citibank only. Not sure why is there some misleading terms for payment found elsewhere.

There are free shipping guarantee promo code with Comgateway and Hopshopgo.

Somehow I can't use it yet. When I apply the code when making payment, amount payable become 0 but the continue button disappeared.Someone has the same problem?

new here! may i know which forwarder is the cheapest for backpacks (weighs about 6kg vol weight) from US?

i'm not sure if it'd be best to sent via the web itself (cost approx S$75) or i'm thinking either via ezbuy or CGW? thanks!
all forwarders will go by the volumetric weight, so do your own sums.
If the cost difference between buying locally is not much after shipping, just buy local.

It appears they have (had?) an exclusive arrangement with Citi before. I signed up for a new BL account, and it gave me the option to pay with PayPal, or other credit cards..

My final rant at Vpost UK.

After so many emails and conversations with their loyal customer service, my last item was finally assigned to me. This last item was part of a 5 items for which I paid up immediately. On the same day, I received an email notification that only the last item was shipped out. The next morning, I received a notification that the item has been delivered to my pop station. What this means was that the item was already shipped to Singapore, when all this time, the customer service had been reaching out to the people in UK to search for the item.

A couple of days later, I received an email from their customer service stating that they were unable to find my item, and required a tracking number, even though the item had been delivered.

This is how screwed up Vpost has become. The way things have turned out, it is fairly evident the core processes in the business model has broken down to the point where no one knows what is happening.

hmm any recommendations for a forwarder in UK then? Besides VPOST Uk i guess the only alternative is BorderLinx? Just looking to ship in an item only but with all the negative reviews i'm not sure which one to use haha.

Simple you don't need to do anything, they ask than you pay, they don't ask than you don't go and ask.
