Hi,

Im buying some t-shirt and polos (about 6-7 pieces) from Macy. Just curious how much would CGW charge? or is there any cheaper alternatives?

MACY's own shipping is is charging me USD 45 roughly.

I buying from an ebay seller. the person offer per t-shirt USD5 shipping.

I buying 7, so total is about 35USD which about 50SGD.

Usually these kind, if they offer free to US countries, should I use borderlinx?

I don't live in SG anymore but guys beware of this Borderlinx. I got a parcel from Carters consisting of 14 clothes for infants, where the real weight is 2kg but volumetric 6.5kg and they refuse to repack it saying it has been already packed optimal. They are liars because such small items can be easily repacked to plastic envelopes and shipped. I am not sure why they offer free repacking service if it doesn't work. Probably because it is "free".

I have been using Aramex ShopAndShip.com for few years now without any glitch (in UAE). They ship to Singapore as well and you get address in 18 countries.

Below are the rates:

Rates from S&S origins (China, South Africa, Turkey, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Canada, South Korea and Japan) are SGD 22.00 for the first 0.5 kg and SGD 8.00 for each additional 0.5 kg.

Rates from S&S origins (USA, UK, Hong Kong, UAE, India, Malaysia and Thailand) are SGD 15.00 for the first 0.5 kg and SGD 5.00 for each additional 0.5 kg.


The major benefit with using SNS is that they charge you by actual weight and not volumetric. The only negative thing is no consolidation. Are they expensive compared to vPost & CGW?

if got free us shipping can try ship to ezbuy since cheapest, free repacking and no base charge
try ask the seller try pack the items compact so you can save on the shipping cost.

can i just say, ezbuy sucks.
their insurance of cos can claim - just a matter of claim how much only. do you know that you can only claim if the OUTSIDE box is damaged? meaning if they are doctors, they won't acknowledge hemorrhages.

Even when they acknowledge the need to pay you back, it's case by case.

and i know because i was unable to get them to say in writing that they would cover item damage in full, even if i declare correct value.

it's the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard. i only use ezbuy for things i don't mind losing.

hopshopgo at least anything go wrong got someone to respond to you.
