US Online Shopping - pobox.ph, johnny air cargo, others(FAQ on page 241, Stolen items on page 208)

  • Anyone ever got a supposedly USPS tracking number that looks like this --- PLnnnnnnnnE (where the n are numeric digits) ?

    Item is from a used book seller on Amazon. Ordered Apr 8 but still hasn't been delivered to Forex up to now. Amazon status says "Expected by May 2". Why so long? Is this something coming from out of US? Cannot find this tracking number on USPS website.
  • @davidson2324 - 13 business days because there was a delay,
  • Finally, my package from Jinio arrived today. I couldn't believe that I had to pay this much for consolidation given the size of the package. Xend courier delivery did a greater job at repacking and consolidation than what Jinio accomplished and charged me , individually, per item batch arriving at my USA suite.

    My only consolation is items still arrive faster. I din't have to deal with paying separately for customs duties and th rates for electronics and non-electronics per pound is still reasonable and cheaper than others. I would still use Jinio on future US purchases.
  • ^ When did you pay for your items? Still haven't received mine. Paid last April 20 pa.
  • ^
    Transit time is approximately 7-12 working days for Metro Manila destinations and 10-15 working days for provincial destinations (weekends and holidays not included) from date of payment.
    ;)

    I paid on April 15, 2016. ^_^
  • Oks. Medyo matagal sila ngayon. Last na gamit ko nung week kinabukasan nareceive ko na eh.
  • Baka dumadami na ang kanilang customers. Ganun naman talaga kapag kumakalat kasi pasa pasa by word of mouth and good reviews from friends and satisfied customers.
  • May nakapagtry na ba ditong mag access ng website ng LBC shipping cart? may lumalabas kasing error message sakin pag tina-try kong i-access ung website nila. I-checheck ko kasi sana ung status ng package ko.
  • Kinda disappointed with Jinio, napaka inconsistent ng weighing nila ng items (sweaters/hoodies), depende ata sa pagkakatiklop nila.

    2 sweaters 5lbs
    2 sweaters 3lbs
    1 sweater 2lbs
    1 hoodie 3lbs

    sabay

    1 hoodie 5lbs (mas mahal pa sa sapatos ang shipping fee) bwiset!

    Did you try contacting Jinio? Explain mo side mo then let them explain and ask them to recalculate or double check...

    I did, and they won't budge. Talaga daw 5lbs. Pero duda ko talaga eh kasi sa Amazon (Product Dimensions: 8 x 12 x 1 inches Shipping Weight: 1.2 pounds) pero sa Jinio (Product Dimensions: 13in * 11in * 4in Shipping Weight: 1.22 Chargeable Shipping Weight: 4.12) at hiniritan ako na nakatipid pa daw ako niyan dahil tinanggal sa packaging. Kung hindi daw (Original Dimensions: 19in *17in * 4in Original Volume: 9.29lbs) Akalain mo, 10lbs daw ang original, 3 kumot ata naorder ko?!

    Jinio just sucks big time. I've tried negotiating my package (5 caps for 10lbs wtf) but they won't budge also.

    Minsan fault din ni amazon to, like mine, sa ASUS G75VW ko nacompute ko na babayaran ko sa JAC dahil may nakalagay naman na shipping dimensions and weight, pero si amazon pa din nasunod dahil iniba nila packaging nilakihan kaya lumaki binayaran ko. Minsan hindi rin natin alam sino talaaga mali the store or the courier... Kamot ulo nalang...
  • I told you people. Just read my past post about Jinio's consolidation by package batch arrival. Maiinis na lang kayo na nilaladlad yata ang kumot o sweater then they measure the open dimension and use that as the volumetric weight eh. Hindi actual na tinitimbang. They may not even bother to fold the sweater into a smaller size.

    Kung ayaw natin sa kanilang charges they send back the items sa seller at our expense pa. Or perhaps auction off our items declaring these as "unclaimed" or "abandoned".

    That's why I make sure I buy "smaller' items only through Jinio and I make sure I know the actual dimension of the packaging box of the item I'm buying. Square or rectangular box if possible.

  • @Vendetta

    been experiencing that since nagumpisa si Jinio, it's just that this experience is the worst hahaha. I guess back to LBC seacargo
  • mga sir, ask ko lang meron ba sa inyo madalas umorder sa alibaba ? pwede magtanong kung pano ?

    thanks
  • @Vendetta Tama, ganyan nga sila. Malas na lang natin kung tiklupin nila ng pagkalaki-laki. Inoffer din nila kung ayaw ko na daw i-ship ibabalik nila sa sender. Hay!

  • Sa case ko si Amazon din minsan may sala. Sa website nila, yung product dimensions kasi e yung mismong dimensions lang ng box/item. Pero once napa-ship kay UPS or FedEx, nadadagdagan talaga nila dahil sa packaging. Comparing yung dimensions and weight ng courier and Jinio, so far sa akin wala masyadong difference. (Though 2nd time ko palang magpa ship kay Jinio).

    Lugi lang talaga kay Jinio kasi 133 yung DIM factor nila. Compared sa rates ng MSB and MyEcasa, may dagdag sa kanilang 1 pound. Kung wala lang talaga limitations si MSB sa batteries, and hindi mabagal magreply si MyEcasa, sa kanila ko padin ipapa airship items ko.
