I just realised this after using cgw for a long time.

I know cgw refunds the onebox fee and uses the pre-onebox weight if the repacked weight is higher.


what if the repacked weight's cost + onebox fee is higher than pre-onebox costs?

Past experience. They will refund the delta.

Found shipandbuy but seems not reliable
Boderlinx seems not to be operational

Any other recommendation will be much appreciated

Hi. I am thinking of getting a camera bag from Kickstarter. The shipping fee is really expensive and I presume it is by air. I am thinking of using Vpost and have the items sent to Vpost china warehouse and then ship it over via sea to save on delivery. Is Vpost service reliable? I am worried the item will be damaged.

Would anyone have any reliable France-based forwarder to recommend? Looking to purchase some items from French local retailer.

Go with comgateway and request for it to be shipped using DHL. That's what I do for all my stuff.

Can see from their sites
If not just msg them and also to get latest rates, if any
Don’t just ship over without checking

Used ebuy for USA all the time here.
No problems ever.
Wish they did UK forwarding

Update on my usage of ComGateway, especially when it comes to returning products.

1) Returns (ship from SG back to CGW - return to eBay seller):
- quite easy, just need to fill in forms, and write instructions if necessary (eg I sent CGW a package that contains 2 returns that needs to be sent to different sellers)
- cost of return handling was minimal - $4 per return. Return shipment label from CGW to seller was generated by eBay / amazon - free
- shipment from SG to CGW was via easyship, ownself pay. No choice.

2) Returns (items at CGW, but needs to be returned back to seller)
- almost the same as above. Just that I didn't need to pay for shipping from Singapore to CGW.
- amazing that they also help with partial returns (2 out of my 5 items that I purchased from 1 seller). Onus of clear instructions is on myself though.
- again, very easy, and quite fast processing and returns.
