If a company states they "do not ship to international reshippers or businesses that forward packages to international addresses", should I just give up? My vpost address format is like damn obvious it's a freight forwarder.

You can attempt to ship. Sometimes, it does work.

Which retailer is this?

Some retailers would reject a non US based Credit Card, some retails would reject based some addresses (if the address is known to be a forwarder address by the retailer).

If you are still not able to purchase, there are concierge / buy for you services that is able to purchase on your behalf. From what i know, OPAS is one of the providers that is still able to by anything in the US without restrictions. Have not used them before though.

I will possibly buy thru agents like 65daigou, pay them SGD+ agent fee and let them settle for me. If that company still reject, then bo bian.

Awful service of vPost!

Last month, I bought some items from US and used vPost to ship to Singapore. As their measurement, volumetric weight is 2.95KG and actual weight is 6KG. After I received the parcel and

re-weight it, volumetric weight is correct, but the actual weight is only 3KG. That means vPost overcharged me for 3KG!

I contacted customer service via email regarding this issue, and after more than 3 weeks in exchanging email and phone calls. Finally, CSO admit the error, and will refund me the

overcharged amount as store credit only! It's ridiculous!! If I have no future shipment, then I would never able to use this credit. And even I am very unsatisfied with their service, I have to

use their service next time as there is some outstanding credit. What the ...??

The case still unresolved as I refused to receive store credit. Is anyone know how can I get back my money? File a case to CASE(Consumers Association of Singapore) or ...?

Thanks!

Sharing my experience with CGW.

Shipped to their warehouse around christmas shopping period.

Got $10 free CGW dollars for black friday and 10 more for adding DBS card as payment option. Also as you see in the pic, 10% more off for dbs card also. Also because I signed up and didn't ship immediately, I got an email discount coupon ENJOYTEN. (u can try n use this)

Was going to buy only 1 item, but then total shipping cost was less than $30, and can't do much with the remainder credits. So i added another item to just go over $30.

I also used their 3 free live quote for black friday, but their estimate is really overestimate for footwear, so actually don't need.

Free upgrade to express because either black friday or dbs card, cannot remember. Repack fee was $7 because the outer box was too big.

In the follow up email respose to feedback they also said

in the event that an item is safe to be transferred into polybag by discarding the external box packaging, you may send us a request via email or Live Chat. This will result to savings on shipping cost as you will be charged for the actual weight instead of volumetric weight.

In addition, please be advised that performing a repack will involve a repacking fee. The standard repack fee for transfers to polybags cost US$ 5.00 (Lite) or US$ 3.00 (Prime) for each package.

so $2 cheaper if you dont want to keep the cardboard box.

Item received 1st jan, 5 days earlier than promised.:s13: In the end shipping was less than SGD6. Good deal, but I doubt I will find it again. Do other shipping forwarders have good deals for first time members like this one?

Not for those who fuss about service/response. But 65dg good, almost free for envelope size items (eg. button batteries, flashcards,etetc).
I bought hearing aids battery, weight was 0.05kg, vwt 0.00). When consolidated with otter parcel, the total chargeable is the aggregate weight. The small item doesn't count with a minimum of 0.5kg.

To file with CASE, you have to become their member. Pay $$$$.
And in the end, they will tell you to go find a lawyer. :s22:

CASE is totally useless. Don't waste your time. :s8:

Here's my situation. I bought a pair of shoes from Amazon UK and had it shipped to my Vpost UK address. On Amazon's tracking page, it shows that the item has been delivered and i noticed a statement which read "parcel was left in mail room, the parcel is delivered to John" So i thought all was fine until i went to check my Vpost account and discovered there were no packages under my account.

Am i screwed? Any others with similar experiences? Thanks for all the help!
