Hi guys would like to ship shades,tanktop and tights here or even mirco SD Shades is 9.1ounces while top and tights is 1 pound. Which shipping fee would be cheaper and whats the est cost? Nid some pro's here to guide me along. Was looking at CGW
For shades alone, I shipped it to a friend who used USPS to ship it to me at only a few USD.

For 1lb 9oz, you can save alot by asking your friend in US (if you have one) to get the USPS standard envelop and wrap the clothes with the shade and send over. Think it's USD$11

They used to have $5 flat rate envelopes but I stopped using them after a while cos I normally get my friend to buy boxers and ship together... Joe Boxers FTW!

Question: If I use hopshopgo and use my credit card on the paypal, it says it calculates the price in USD, so if I were to use my SG credit card, I'll be charged with the lousy exchange rate from Paypal right?

In order to save, I should actually charge the card to my US credit card, then there will be no exchange rate at all.

Is my deduction correct?
that depends on actually how are u going to pay ur american credit card bill? using SG credit card?

The question is, does comGateway compute the item price
1 ) Automatically from the receipt or
2 ) From user input
Good question, can someone answer?

Do they OPEN every package to get the paper slip inside?

The best way with vPost is to change the setting so that you self-declare your packages. Then you are informed when a package arrives (you do not have to inform them about any pending deliveries) and once it does you simply put in the order number and the value of the package in USD (total invoice value, including postage). QUICK & EASY.

After that you pay the shipping costs online and that's it, the package will be on its way to Singapore. Of course you can wait for a few packages to arrive, then you can declare each of them once they are all there and they will be "consolidated" into one shipment with a single base charge (of course each parcel will still arrive in its own separate box).

Personally I really like the new option to receive your order at a post office of your choice (not just Eunos). This is extremely helpful as using a home address means that deliveries are made Mon-Fri. Selecting a post office for pick-up means that the package might arrive on Saturday and you could still pick it up later that day or even on Sunday if the PO is open.

1. Once you log in click on "Change Profile"

2. Under "Item Declaration Options" select "vFlex (YES, I would like to self-declare)"

3. Click Submit

From now on you can declare your packages yourself which is much easier (and quicker). As mentioned, just make sure you put in the entire amount (in USD) of your order, including any postage/insurance costs.
