I prefer to use borderlinx over cgw as the centre is located in Ohio which is the same as where DHL will ship from. Save a bit of time for parcels to move all over the states. For CGW i recall it's in another state and it takes around another day for the parcel to travel to Ohio.

I only used vpost once and it took forever for my parcel to arrive. On average, borderlinx n cgw take 3-4 days upon arrival at their centers.

hi guys, i recently made an order using CGW's BuyForMe service, however the item I was getting was sold out and I have cancelled the order.

How long does it take until my money is unfrozen? because currently payment it is still pending in ibanking.

Mine was pretty fast or which in e first place no money should b deducted when no stock or order was cancelled. I received order rejected and next morning I reset the order only then my sum was freezed. Anyway as usual now my order Amazon sent as four packages instead of one due to my own mistake .. Should have set option send all at one go. Now my shipment weight more than $100sgd damn

they always never repack my stuff. i told them remove shoe box they still say the boxes 'cannot be removed'

nb one. just cos i use borderlessbuys using amex card they think i carrot head.

CGW in US is just e warehouse. the main peeps in e cust svc all from SINGAPORE one, they have a sg office. thats why only 11-6pm and sat sun no work one.

pui
I agree with you.

I would seriously recommend that people stop using Borderlinx. They are very stubborn in not allowing repacking (to protect their profits).

Now, both CGW and Vpost offer repackaging.

If you have kena before huge shipping boxes from merchants for small items, you would know what I mean by getting "slaughtered" by the forwarding charges. At least CGW and Vpost can offer to repack. Not Borderlinx.

How come vpost charge Gst AFTER shipping is calculated into the total bill. WTF is this bull****

I ordered a $220 USD item, then they calculate their bullsh!t volumetric weight shipping for me, and added that into the bill and now suddenly it's over $400 dollars sing, so I had another 5% tax slapped on me.

Damn BS man. For something worth 310 dollars Sing, i had to pay 460 sing in the end.

150 dollar shipping

WHat BS is this

it's not BS, it's the law.

and volumetric weight is not BS either, it's common practice for air freight.

look at it this way, you've learnt something new.

but the volumetric weight is 16KG (WTF WTF)

it's more than double of the weight!!

possible to ask CGW to repack the thing?

there's no option of repackaging at the order page at their website.

or need to email them to do it??

Hi i have received the reply from cgw,

they say the reassessment fee will be US$10 no matter what.

now i'm afraid they will say cannot repack after this,

what are the chances of this happening?

Hi guys, first time using comgateway here, looking for some advice..

1) When I checked out the shipping cost yesterday I had 2 discounts (I'm using DBS CC to pay), one 15% and the other is the free 1kg one. The free first kg shipping promo, when I checked again today, is gone..means already got 100 new customers redeem? Seems kind of suspect considering that its only 3rd Dec and they have a 100 new customers?

2) If I consolidate my packages and the cost >$400 will get charged with 7% GST right?

3) If I do not consolidate, and each package is under $400SGD inclusive of freight - and I ship both from CGW at the same time, won't tio GST right?

1) why not, there's no basis for your suspicion.
2) Yes
3) Yes
