US Online Shopping - Pobox, JAC, LBC, MSB, etc (FAQ on page 241, Stolen items on page 208)

  • hi guys,

    may nakapag ship na ba sa inyo ng motherboard from US? tanong ko lang sana kung magkano usually ang shipping fee and tax? planning to buy a motherboard sana thinking na makakatipid ako. motherboard costs 100$ sa US pero dito sa tin, the next best thing with similar specs is P7450. thats basically around P2500 difference. if hnd naman ganun kamahal both shipping fee and tax, i might want to try buying abroad.

  • Ask ko lang sana pano serbisyo ng LBC shipping cart ngayon?

    Ang Kupad sa US Warehouse. May item akong delivered last Saturday from USPS at hindi parin accepted. Whereas yung kararating pa lang from Amazon Logistics na-accepted agad

    kapag marami kang packages (galing sa ibat ibang merchandisers), matagal talaga ang sc kasi may processing time pa na kinakailangan.

    Lahat ng Akin from Amazon. Pa-isa isa nga lang dumadating kasi naka Prime hehe

    Mabagal ang 2nd & 3rd deliveries ko last Feb
    2nd Delivery took 12 Business Days - Late 2 days
    3rd Delivery took 11 Business Days - On Time
    Pero may techniques akong nadiskubre para mapabilis.
    1. Check-out from Shipping Cart during their US Business Hours and Not on Weekends
    2. Kung "Received at Delivery Hub" na pwede kong sugurin to pick-up the box

    Nevertheless, Okay ang Pricing. For the record, No lost items yet. Hopefully wala talaga
    Unlike Jinio, taga ang presyo (1.1lb item charged as 2 lbs)

    Example : dimensions is 7.1 x 7.1 x 9.8 inches; 1 pounds and yung price is 89.99 (Non-Electronics)

    Volume Weight: 5 lbs, Actual Weight: 1 lb
    Chargeable Weight: 5 lbs
    Shipping Cost: $29.95
    Door to Door Delivery (2GO/APCargo) : $3.75
    TOTAL: $33.7 (Mas mahal pa sa Shipping Cart)

    and Johnny Air Cargo (2lbs minimum)

    May better alternatives pa ba other than SC if totoo nga yung mga sabi ng mga tao?


    Johnny Air. kung 2lbs pataas ang chargeable weight ng items mo

    If okay lang sa inyo idisclose boss ano ba mga pinapaship niyo? gadgets? mamahaling gamit? or anything na maiinit sa mata.
  • @learning mode

    maayos pagka pack nila sa trunk shade sir? natutupi ba yan or straight lang talaga dapat?

    matagal ko na kasi plan magpa-ship ng side skirt, pero worry ko is baka masira kasi mejo mahaba
  • @artie
    Di ko pa alam kung paano nila pack, update ko pag nakuha ko na. Straight na metal kasi yun 54inches.
  • ^
    salamat sir!
    mejo nagka pagasa ako.. not much longer than 54 inches din naman yung side skirt
  • ^
    Mas nagukat ako dun sa shipping computation, akala ko special handling pag ganun na kahaba
  • ^
    mejo nag lax ata sila sir sa special handling criteria, lalo na after nung price increase last March 1

    few weeks ago kasi nagpadala din ako ng fog lights, lampas din sa prescribed box size nila, pero regular rate lang din siningil sakin
  • ^
    Binayaran ko agad e, kala ko nagkamali lang sila
  • SC po ba ang best option kung laptop ang bibilin ko? $900 na laptop, P 4,341.76 ang estimate.
  • ano ba mga pinapaship niyo? gadgets?

    iPhone cases, Power Bank, Anker cables and the like

    SC po ba ang best option kung laptop ang bibilin ko?

    The Cheapest option, door to door pa
  • @doncorleone^^ regarding the shipping estimate of lbc, it is very arbitrary as of the moment. At times they will measure the whole package (including original packaging and box) - this will lead to higher shipping fees. On other days, they will remove excess packaging and measure the item only. Im assuming that the dimensions you have provided are for the item only so it really depends whether or not they measure it correctly. In cases that the dimensions are contradicting, you could contest lbc through customer service for remeasurement although some say their cs is crappy but i think its bearable

  • @snowraptor hey buddy, i ordered a console pc this week and sent it to my lbc address. So u could consider that a computer but cheaper at around $300 only. Personally, even though there are lots of freight forwarders thag you could choose from, i think it comes down to both lbc and johnny air. Ive never used johnny air before and neither do i like how their shipping rates are calculated. So lbc, despite of hiccups, would still be the best option for expensive items like yours. Now, the most important thing is the receipt email from lbc informing u that they have reveived a package for u because if the items get lost, if ever, u could file for compensation or etc ( i only read about this but binalik na man daw pera). :) hope we get our computers safely

  • Wala naman po kakaiba sa computation ng Johnny Air at sila pa mismo nagdidiscount tinanggal sa akin 1 lb din kaya $5.99 agad yun na discount. Nagcconsolidate din sila at wala pa bayad.
  • @lambnat di po ako updated sa johnny air pero alam ko na minsan ay may dinadagdag sila sa original price na binigay. Rinerelay ko lang ang mga alam ko. Di ko alam kung sa karaan na to o ganoon parin.
  • $5 handling fee lang din po ang dagdag na lagi po meron + VAT po yun lang naman po. Nilinaw ko lang po. Kadalasan ang mga parokyano nila yun malalaki talaga ang pinapadala kung napapansin niyo kapag kumukuha kayo sa Megamall. :-D
  • Hi guys. Maganda ba bumili ng TV from the US? Gustong gusto ko kasi bumili ng Vizio na brand pero wala kasing mabili dito na authorized dealer. Balak ko sana bumili ng 32 inches na smart tv. Tanong ko lang how much kaya ang charge if LBC SC?
  • sino na po dito nagpa-ship ng sapatos using SC? ano pong size at magkano inabot ng shipment cost? TIA
  • 1pair shoes normally nasa 1500-2000 depende sa size ng box
  • ^ salamat po!
  • Mga sir, I'm not sure if OT but ano naba ok na prepaid card gamitin ngayon?

    Currently on BPI's eprepaid mastercard pero notice ko parang may binabawas na silang 500+ pesos dun sa funds ko. this is the 3rd time na nangyari to. Not sure kung sa BPI ang may problema o sa Mastercard. Walang makausap na matino sa CS nila, di rin masagot ng mga physical branch yung tanong ko.

    Not sure kung OK sa Paymaya or yung EON. Convenient lang kasi sa BPI eprepaid kasi may savings account din ako sa kanila kaya madali lang magload ng funds via transfer. Pero kung every purchase ko sa US e may cha-charge sakin si Mastercard o si BPI na extra e parang lugi na ata ako nun aside sa renewal fee na binabayaran ko for my ePrepaid.

    TIA
  • ^ woah di ko pa to naranasan pero kung gusto mo talaga yung super transparent at mas mura, why not apply for a credit card ung credit card tlga? Labat ng prepaid card have fees kasi dun sila kumikita same with paymaya and others.
  • ano naba ok na prepaid card gamitin ngayon?


    Coins virtual card, although refund takes 14 days :(
    Maintenance Fee : $1 (But gets refunded after)
    About to try GCash AMEX
    Membership Fee : ?250/Year, First Year is Waived

    The best thing is, Conversion Rate isn't like $1=?52 or 53 for US -Based Cards
