Yes, we won't know for sure but we can gauge whether we would be charged GST by expecting the size of the package (and to a lesser extent the actual weight of the item and the exchange rate).
Cost of package (product value + US sales tax + US domestic shipping charge)
Freight (shipping charge from US to SG)
GST is liable as long as the CIF as explained is more than SGD 400.
sorry for digging this up
just wanna check, my shopping estimated is about USD 260, 3 packages
so far 2 packages would cost me 2.5kg of freight, i have 1 more OTW
there is no way i can split into 2 shipments to avoid GST right ?
and splitting into 2 shipments is more expensive then GST itself ?
You can split different packages to be shipped at different times, i.e., different shipments. You arrange shipping yourself, so you decide which packages you want to ship out. And one more thing to note, GST is not just 7% NETT, there is CGW admin fee of 5% based on the GST amount.
because borderlinx says it's not allowed. so comgateway etc can?
Lithium ion batteries (a.k.a.: rechargeable lithium, lithium polymer, LIPO, secondary lithium). Passengers may carry all consumer-sized lithium ion batteries (up to 100 watt hours per battery). This size covers AA, AAA, cell phone, PDA, camera, camcorder, handheld game, tablet, portable drill, and standard laptop computer batteries. The watt hours (Wh) rating is marked on newer lithium ion batteries and is explained in #3 below. External chargers are also considered to be a battery.
Called VPOST, their outsource oversea call center cant do anything about it.
Got a question for those who have shipped via Gshipexpress. I usually use CGW where i am a prime member and decided to try out Gshipexpress. From what i can see on their website they use DHL to deliver however when my parcels are being sent to SG, they do not provide the DHL tracking number. Is this a normal practice for them? Also does it always take so long for the parcels to b delivered once the status is updated to be in SG already?
So far my experience with them is ok but its not on par with CGW. Find that it takes them a long time to match my parcels to my account when they are delivered to their US address and delivery from US to SG is taking too long as compared to CGW. Only thing that saves them is the free repack.
i have always been a cgw user but would like to give gship a go
hmmm are u saying there is a time lag in gship's tracking? sorry its pretty late so might eyes may not be working
