Yea I meant to say that I paid for the shipment on Friday night
I actually paid for my shipment last friday and it was shipped on the same day and now its already in singapore. I'm using express. I paid in the afternoon (singapore time). I think as long as you pay before the US branch open on friday using express, they will ship it on friday too.
They will ship it latest by the next business day after payment, so summersky1986, you should be getting your airway bill number today (accounting for time zone difference).

Any idea if lubricating oil (like this Amazon.com: Poulan Bar and Chain Oil, 1-Quart: Patio, Lawn & Garden) can be shipped from amazon?

Will there be GST payable when the item is delivered? Because someone said CGW already charged me for the taxes..

My shipment is over SGD400

Sharing my experience with comgateway~

Ordering and etc was all okay, and comgateway notified me that my shipping was there faster than UPS.

Then I was paying for shipping to Singapore. I used Paypal, tried about 5 times, all return errors (comgateway errors). So I used POSB/DBS card, then they will SMS me a pin to confirm that it's a legal sale. But I didn't have my phone with me, I cancelled the OTP, but comgateway recognised as successful. Then they just started shipping out.

Idk if is loophole in comgateway or DBS. Didn't confirm payment through OTP yet still charged.


Anyway, if you have a DBS/POSB card, use comgateway. They got rewards for registering your card with them

Oh and by the way, how can you schedule to pick up your parcel instead of them delivering? DHL express.

So in summary:
DBS/POSB card holder -> CGW
Citibank CC holder? -> borderlinx
below 2kg parcels -> vpost

? Am I right?
