For Regular Shippers, Here's a Great Option

Hi plsoong
Your items are high-value, so make sure your forwarder has shipment insurance just in case. Our service, Shopandship.com, provides free shipment protection of up to USD100. For USD 100 and up to USD 2500, the protection fee will be 1%.


For Regular Shippers, you may check out our FLEX membership which entitles you to free shipment protection and large cost savings with shipping fees calculated at per 100g basis only.

Example: Many forwarders charge by per 500g, so even if your shipment weight is 1.6kg, you would need to pay for 2kg. For our FLEX membership, members only need to pay rates for 1.6kg exactly.

Shop & Ship Flex Rates (Actual Weight):
Ship from US & UK at
S$9 for the first 100g
S$1 for each additional 100g

Above 3kg - Special Rate
S$4 per 500g

Hi,

I have provided my answers to your questions in red. Hope this helps!

Hi,

sorry if this sound too noob. Fact is, ive never sent my online orders through other forwarding companies, but as ill have to "purchase" a couple of ebay items worth USD 1500 each, i was hoping to know what to do to reduce the entire cost involved.

So, are the following the correct steps:-

1) Register to have a US address with one of the forwarding companies (ezbuy, cGW, Borderlinx, vPost, etc),Yup.

2) Bid/buy from ebay seller and ask him/her to deliver to the US address from above.Yup.

3) Do i need to do anything from here? or will the forwarding companies contact me to say the items are in their warehouse and that i should pay?Yes, they will inform you when the item arrived at their warehouse. how to reduce the bulk of the original box but still have bubble wrapping to ensure that anything sensitive will not be damaged?
It depends on whether the forwarder provides re-packing service.

appreciate your time to provide some guidance.


cheers!

means they probably accept US-only credit cards.
you probably need to use the BuyForMe service in ComGateway (which means paying a % more for the item you want)

Has anyone used vpostusa economy shipping before?

Is it true that they ignore volumetric weight and use only actual shipping weight?

it sounds too good to be true?

Borderlinx has something similar too. Personally, I would not use vpost, even it's the cheapest and it's not, as I have had very bad experience with them before.

Hi all, so i have $57 gift card left on amazon, looking to buy a paperwhite. was looking at comgateway since theres a 40% for first order using dbs/posb cards. question is, do i ship the item to the address first then apply the code after once it arrives or what?

Hi shopandship bro, I've tried out shopandship and got pending packages in. The shipping charges look expensive. Separate packages have no consolidation in shipping charges. Can share if there's a promo code to offset? Otherwise this may be the last time using already.

Thanks much.

Has anyone shipped a replacement device through one of these concierge services? Since there is no purchase, is there any difference in how things are done?

Hi tspurs

To answer for Shopandship.com, you can ship anything via our service as long as it is not an unacceptable material.


On another note, if you are talking about Returns, customers have to ship them back via Aramex courier service.
