For me Borderlinx has always been the most trouble-free, until a recent incident. I had ordered 2 down vests from Lands End and shipped them to Borderlinx. Borderlinx assessed the package as a whopping 18.7kg ! Shipping for this single box alone was US$110 !

I had to chase them via email and live chat for over a week to get them to measure the box again. Finally they sent me an email to say it has been updated, but no explanation or apology. The new weight now ? 2kg.
I had the same problem with Borderlinx as well where a single DVD weighs 12kg+. I have to chase them for more than a week before they corrected it.

Just to share my personal experience with ComGateway. Their service is really bad.

First of all, it takes ages (10-15 mins) to get in touch with their customer service through live chat. Once it is my turn, it takes them 2-3 mins to respond to each of my questions.

Secondly, I paid the premium to have the product delivered to me through 'express delivery' which they claimed in their website that it takes 3-4 days to deliver to me. Well I made the payment on the 8th January and only received the tracking number today (12th Jan)!!! The estimate delivery date is 18th January!!!!

I'll sure blacklist this company for future purchase.
I have the same prob too and in addition, they will just terminate your chat if you pose difficult questions for them to answer. I manged to get their phone number when my package was lost (you can search my post to get the number) and I was told that I can't get back my GST! I argued and they refunded eventually, in total.

If the US merchant will ship direct to you, try checking how much it cost. From there, if including shipping, the total cost is still acceptable, dont ship to Borderlinx, CGW, vpost, etc... as you run the risk of dimension weight as many bros here has been posting warning about.

For me, I know about the dimension weight issue but still shipped to Borderlinx thinking the consolidation of a few items would bring down the shipping cost, boy was I wrong. Shipping cost end up to be more than 50% of my purchases, now I hope my items cost and the shipping which is in USD dont adds up to be beyong S$400 and be subjected to GST...

edit: btw the borderlinx calculator does not includes fuel surcharge which can adds up. For me shipping direct has the cheaper shipping cost.

PLEASE HELP ME!!!
Vpost or CGW?

i wanted to buy earphones(1Kg-2Kg, volume weight about the same) from amazon and not sure which one is cheaper.

Have a few other questions:
1)when Vpost and CGW loses the things, do they replace/refund?
2) Vpost only post out the things at Friday as in Singapore Time right? How much is the chances of Vpost losing things?
3)Which is more reliable for 1KG-2Kg
4)Any chances that the things will be damaged during the transporting by both CGW and Vpost?


Thanks if advance for replies,
Sorry first time buying, unsure of everything

GST applicable since total value exceeds S$400.

Be careful of comgateway. I ordered an item with a 5lbs weight. The shipping fee from the merchant from US to me via USPS Priority International is only US $43.95. Whereas , Comgateway want to charge me US $90 for shipping fee. How Absurb is that.
