    First time missing item sa Shippingcart since 2018 -->


    Sa'akin nung umorder ako ng phone, ang nawala yung free sticker sa loob pero nakadikit pa din yung seal ng box XD
    Very odd pero di ko na hinabol!

  • What are our alternatives when a merchant (specifically Nvidia.com) doesn't accept freight forwarder addresses?
  • Hi, been reading here since Friday from page 1 then jumped to middle page then page 600. Most of the shipments na nababasa ko SC, JAC, PObox, buynship, myshoppingbox and kango. Sa pagbackread ko wala akong nabasa about Packypack or na overlooked ko lang din :) Ask ko lang kung may nakapag try na dito to use Packypack by forex? Im planning to use this for my manga haul (18pcs to 23pcs). Care to share po if natry na ninyo. Thank you :)
  • @annabellecreation - I think may mga gumagamit po. Peor sa pagkaalala ko po ang name na pamilyar sa mga tao dito sa TPC'ers is Forex, and not yung naging packypack na siya
  • Re: Packypack by Forex
    Before you ship items to them, ask them what they consider as commercial quantity for manga.

    Tried them last year nung nagkaproblem LBC. Haven't used them recently though.

    Make sure to ask ano na timeframe nila from receiving item to it showing up in cart and from showing up in cart to packing -- invoicing -- and checkout then shipout. Last year kasi it was 2 weeks for each step kaya sobrang tagal. [this was by sea cargo btw] Pero once ma-ship out na 4 weeks andito na sa Pinas. Responsive naman via chat and email.
  • how's kangos service these days? ok naman, same pa rin dati? tagal ko na hindi nagagamit service nila pero may balak ako orderin sa us.
  • Hello po sa mga naka-experience na sa SC. Kapag po ba ang item ay worth $2000, shiniship pa din nila?

    Chineck ko kasi sa website nila eto nakasulat, "ShippingCart will only ship a package/s with a maximum value of USD500 per shipment." at "The maximum value of items for shipping per transaction exceeds $500 is unacceptable.". At the same time, nagback-read ako dito and search din sa net at madami naman nakakapagship ng laptop around $1500+, yung ibang nabasa ko dito MacBook pa napa-ship nila. Na-check ko na din sa online estimator nila and nakakapag-compute naman ng maayos with that price.

    Panghuli, kapag ba drinop-off ni courier yung item sa local post office dahil walang tao to receive in ShippingCart warehouse, pede ba yun ipickup ni SC kahit may extra charge?

    Salamat po.
  • ^

    Lagi redeliver next business day gagawin ni courier kung wala tatanggap sa SC warehouse. Susubukan pa rin ito ideliver ulit hanggang sa mag return to sender.
  • @marbleygloo @kamoteman_39 thank you for your reply will use that for future reference kapag confident na ako gumamit ng other forwarder. As of now tyaga muna sa amazon courier 2.8K din shipping for box set with 16volumes. Buti nlng naka 40% off yung bibilhin ko :)

    Nakausap ko din pala yung sa Packypack by Forex and more than 12 is consider commercial and addtl charge of 25USD. So 2.8K is not a bad thing narin atleast airplane ang books ko mabilis darating, ang worry ko sa sea baka mabasa hehe

    Sana maging successful first international online shopping ko.
  • Do you know of any courier that will ship a 43 inch TV from the US? BnS doesn't deliver and its the only one I tried so far.
  • @chaingang317

    You can check with SC (Shipping Cart) inquire kayo kasi pagkakaalam ko may mga nakapagpadala ng TV galing sa US dahil sa Black Friday yun nga lang via Sea Cargo. Pag mga ganyan ata Sea Cargo lang ang pwede
  • parang nagtaas si BNS ng rate?
  • Pag sa Amazon nakalagay "No Import Fees Deposit" wala na talaga babayaran tax pag dating dito? Nagtaka ako more than 10K kasi tapos electronics yung item.

    PHP 10,241.61 + No Import Fees Deposit & PHP 1,028.31 Shipping to Philippines
  • Has anyone tried buying from Amazon.jp? Nakaka ship na ba sila overseas and if oo, diretso na ba sa address?
  • ^Yes it does. Bought an IEM (EX800ST) there 2 years ago. There should be a deliver to PH clickable option or makikita mo mismo sa item. But if you want to be sure, always select the Amazon Global sa mga tabs/options on top since items under those can be shipped worldwide. DHL gamit nilang courier nung nareceive ko sya dito. Syempre may tax pa din over 10k like sa US na Amazon. There are however forwarders like ZenMarket that you can use if masyado sya mahal.
  • Has anyone tried buying from Amazon.jp? Nakaka ship na ba sila overseas and if oo, diretso na ba sa address?


    I ordered a Nagaoka replacement stylus there once. It was shipped door-to-door via DHL.

    Check first if they ship to the Philippines because seems like they have a lot of items that I wanted but those don't ship internationally.
  • My first experience sa Amazon ay Amazon Global Expedited Shipping. Nakalagay sa tracking ay UPS tapos 7 days direct sa bahay ko. Small item lang to na mura.

    EDIT:

    May example ako sa baba ng shipping ng dalawang hardbound books. Sept 12 sa cart. Ganyan yung possible differences ng shipping dates.

    To check kung door to door, lagay kayo sa cart then proceed to checkout. Dapat AmazonGlobal Expedited or Priority. Mabilis to. Random ang courier sa Pinas.




    Kapag ganitong nasa baba, sa philpost/customs yan (malapit sa NAIA, Pasay). Mabagal. Pamasahe mo + 120 pesos sa customs. Bulok haha

  • Been using SC a bunch of times since 2017. No problems with them so far. The only con with them is the TAX imposed for incoming goods to their warehouse aka State of California TAX.

    I recently used Kango, it says on their website that the item should arrived today 09/13 but no updates or changes w/ the tracking info since the item went out from their warehouse. Unlike SC's real time updates, Kango website is pretty outdated and hella SLOW. It certainly needs a revamp. Good thing is there is no imposed state TAX in Delaware for incoming goods.
  • malaki ba tax ng cali?
  • ^10.75% for total cost of item/s plus shipping.

    Edit: Echo Show 8 just arrived today. So Kango is right on schedule. ETA was September 13 plus 1-2 days allowance for local dispatch.

  • Hello, I just want to ask lang po about sa Tax. Try ko sana mag order from US and item price is $600. How much po estimate tax ko if I choose SC? Salamat! First time ko mag order from US and need ko muna ng tulong. ;)
  • You can actually get CA sales tax refunded depending on the retailer. Sales tax becomes a non-issue if you buy from Amazon because they offer tax exemptions.
  • Anyone have any discount coupons for Kango?
    A bunch of my items from different retailers are arriving at their Delaware warehouse, so will need to ship those soon.

    Thanks much!
  • any issues if rekta sa FedEx gamitin? US to PH yung route. dadaan pa ba sa Post? or diretso bahay?

    thanks in advance!
