Has anyone used vpostusa economy shipping before?

Is it true that they ignore volumetric weight and use only actual shipping weight?

it sounds too good to be true?
but they dont do repacking for economy air. if you buying clothings/small items should be fine

It's a pity your USA address is in New York, a sales tax state, and not Oregon. I would have preferred to use your services if not for this reason. The sales tax in New York is quite substantial.

Please suggest your company to move your warehouse to a sales tax free state. You'll definitely have more customers.

Hi tspurs

To answer for Shopandship.com, you can ship anything via our service as long as it is not an unacceptable material.


On another note, if you are talking about Returns, customers have to ship them back via Aramex courier service.
Hi, since you guys are using actual weight instead of volumetric
Is there a max limit for that?
