What is the diff between standard and express shipping for CGW? since standard takes 4 days to reach sg once shipped. Is the difference on the fact that they take shorter time to process the shipments?
According to the site, standard take 5 to 8 working days. If your card is POSB/DBS, you will upgrade to express for free.

The difference with express and standard is express takes about 3-4 working days while standard take 5-8 working days. The charges for express is also higher

std on paper is 5-7 days, express is 3-4 days. Guess after payment, they process express-orders in paper/datasystem first, afternoon/next day then do normal delivery payment. us-sg delivery shd be same.

Sort inv, pkg, destination & addresses alr not easy, dun think got time to sort priority somemore. Dun think their system so confis. to separate by priority, except for sg-door delivery, which shd be prioritised, b4 handing to contract couriers.

Non-peak, either way, still takes 4-5 days after payment.

Not surprising, ever encountered a week for them to give me the AWB number.
for me it is surprising, i almost always get my AWB the next working day.

help yrself frsr by reading some help first.

For reliability and pricing, i think there r mixed views here. it depends on the type&costs of items, quantity of. pkgs, how they are packed ad shipped., whether yr store needs us-verified ccards or paypal, and how assured u want, vs price to. pay.

steps r all illustrasted in each courier's webpage.

what is material safety sheet?? against jap radiation

While we know vpost is gst-exempt is at item level<S$400.
is 2 items x $300 in single invoice = gst exempt?
what about pkg level?, i.e 2 invoices but in 1 pkg

Actually, I already read some post here but since this thread is already in page 40.. its kinda difficult to read every post and now Im confused because there are a lot of shipping online. That's why Im asking for a GOOD RECOMMENDATION,

By the way I want to do onlineshopping in Dorothy Perkins. Does Anyone here wants to share with me the shipping cost?

just pm me.

I'll share it here for all. If u can do dperks, no need stinch on shipping liao. if it doesn't accept intl ccard, use DBS for free buy4u service, vpost or cgw(u.p. 5% charge). To justify yr shopping, then buy more stuffs, from other stores, no necessary from same store..

If combined exceeds S$400, suggest u go vpost, w/o insurance(still safe). Also with better promo, $12 for min. $80 shipping ($70), >15% off. (dbs). Unless u new shipper, up to 50% off.

7.5 kg, or combined 30cm x 30cm x 40cm boxes is about $80, which is about 3 shoes boxes or 2 handbags with boxes..usually these brands box pkg are very big..unless you insist they ship w/o boxes. But still the domestic couriers, eg UPS, Fedex, will put them in a bigger box..

Sts they ship different items in different pkgs from different warehouses.Hv to find out form CS, If 1-3 items ship together in 1 pkg <US$300 , go cgw, 7.5kg (wt or vol) ~ S$75 (with ins, b4 promo), otherwise go vpost (ins. $18 optional).

imho, most hua is to buy clothes/dresses, tell them compact-ship, and they discard the individual dress boxes, pack a lot of them with plastic wraps, in nice branded box, unless u dress up carrying yr dperks box.

Compactship is a good point. But will merchants suspect that this item will be shipped out of USA and thus refuse to sell to you?

those intl brands ctrling cross-border merchandise, would only accept US ccards. (bypassed by vpost/cgw concierge svs).
Would u want to receive a gift 10-20x bigger than actual item?

And why would merchants refuse business?
int'l price ctrls.
eg. whole world knows sg most ex cars, highest paid ministers, hi wc2010 subpn, sg rich, sure wanna chop.
Even my suppiers supply sg and msia, alm 2x prices.

suddenly vpost is so restrictive in items mailing to Sg from US.
Now my items stuck at vpost US. Either I ask other courier to pick out and send over or dispose at vpost US.

Very rubbish service!
