seems like the concern for vpost is not about prices

after a brief observation, i think the shipping charges are all about the same. It's all depends on what credit card you have, and you just go for the best promo.


The next question is the reliability of the shipping. This one can be quite subjective too. Definitely there will be some lapse in customer service and shipping.

My package from CGW just came in! Was express shipping after free UOB upgrade. I think its just as fast as sglords standard shipping from his image 16 pages back conclusion : maybe standard and express difference not alot and probably not worth the extra few dollars either

Definitely. vpost is already cheaper to use than CGW even without that card.

Expect much poorer service quality though for vpost; especially if you do encounter problems along the way.

In UK, the VAT (their version of GST) is at 20% and is charged to all purchases that are sent to vPostEurope address. As the items are eventually meant for export to Singapore, technically, the VAT should be refunded.

Does vpost/borderlinx handle this refund of UK VAT? Any bros here experience this before? Please help.

It's not considered as export to SG coz your delivery address is UK local address given to you. It's a local purchase technically, just like any local Brit would order online and delivery to his home address.

The shipping company is like a UK friend you got there. Your purchase is send to his home address and he helping you by shipping it to SG.
