Why did you buy a single $7 item in the first place? Surely the shipping to SG will cost more than the item itself. In any case, just use CGW live chat to ask them to discard.

Shipped in a larger package/box than the actual product packaging size? That's common, you always need to prepare for that.

I just realised today that CGW charges 0.5kg minimum for any package. I have 4 t-shirts orders and they only weigh 0.2kg each but all under seperate delivery, so I incurred an additional 0.3kgx4 (1.2kg) worth of shipping charges

Does anybody know what are the shipping charges are like for the other forwarders and if they have any minimum weight per package?

Maaaaaan.

That totally sucks. :( So difficult to buy t-shirts from woot.com that way. Anyway, I suppose it's comforting to hear that it's the norm. =/

My 4 packages only 800g, but because it's seperate so now it's charged 2kg

i order 2 shirts from http://www.ralphlauren.com/ and shipped via borderlinx, shipping cost around S$30. i think you can email merchant to use small parcel box or compress package.

Noted that vPost is the only one that includes its Fuel Surcharge in the rates shown in its shipping rates table. The other two charges FC separated, meaning have to add 15.5% to the rates shown when you use their shipping caculator. Is this correct?

CGW's shipping calculator says 0.5kg is USD12.79. But isn't first 0.5kg is flat rate USD11.

And for 1kg it says USD16.10. Isn't it 11 + 2.85, which is only 13.85

How come?

USD11 + 15.5% fuel surcharge + 0.65% mandatory insurance = USD12.79

$30 for how many kg ?
seems a bit ex.

few month old shipping cost not $30, it is SGD 20.83+SGD 3.44(Fuel)=SGD 24.26, volumetic weight is $1.48 k. All freight forwarder calculated weight by dimension of parcel size. Ralph Lauren box that fit nicely for 2 shirts.

each boy oxford shirt big pony cost around $55, DFS selling boy oxford shirt for $120.

CGW really sucks. i bought via HopshopGo also using CGW. Very slow.........

After confirm,1-2days get tracking no#. Thought package on the way but in the end, havent even start to send out. Whole shipping + processing is like 7-10days. wasay slow until dont know what

Shipment Date: September 16, 2011
9/26/2011 1:04 pm Shipment delivered.

10 freaking days




Borderlinx on the other hand is like 1-2days processed (see if u catch the flight) and normally 5days can receive.

IF its not that CGW has repackage n do concierge fast, i wont even place order with them
