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

  • Guys, question. A friend of mine sent me a package, tapos upon checking, nasa Customs Clearance na siya by May 8. Saan to usually pupuntahan?

    EDIT: In-transit pa pala. Tho, ano to, ide-deliver dito sa amin or do I have to pick-it up personally.

  • @MRSA
    Kung post office ang ginamit ng friend mo, sa post office mo rin kukunin yung package. Different case if via FedEx, DHL, etc.
  • Pa up ulit ng question:

    Guys pano.ba magbayad sa pobox? I had my item tagged as requested for shipping pero wala ako makitang link for payment. Thanks
  • ^ andun yun sa my billing page
  • San kayo bumibili ng Nike / Adidas sneakers and footwear online na pwede PH credit card and nakakapagforward or ship dito?
  • Anywhere in the USA puwede basta tumatanggap ng International CC. Then just use a forwarding service gaya ng discussion sa topic na ito. You're good to go na.
  • @sykotik
    Bought my Nike J1 in footlocker.com, and my bf's Nike J1 in eBay.com. Be wary of shoe sellers in eBay, though. Hanap ka ng sellers na may at least 500 positive feedback, and look for "100% legit" in their description, para eligible ka for refund if ever fake ang ibigay sa 'yo.
  • Oh, its good that footlocker.com accepts international CCs pala. I tried hypedc, finishline and champssports lahat ayaw ng international CC, dun pa naman available yung mga hinahanap ko. :(

    Forwarding rates for one standard shoe box is roughly $30 USD, right? Usually considered at 5lbs? Plan ko idaan sa USA Direct Phil since I did ship a different item through them before.

    Thanks!
  • @sykotik
    How's USA Direct PHL? Reliable naman ba? It's been a while since I last used air shipping, but I'm considering Jinio if ever I buy another pair of shoes. Might also consider USA Direct PHL kasi mura ang rates nila, though I haven't read much about it here.
    Iwan ka naman ng review dito. :3
  • USA Direct PHL was formerly FRS, renamed late last year. Isang item palang napaship ko sakanila, a religious item from the US. Overall OK naman, though I don't consider their website as secure though because its very basic. Item arrived within the timeline and I picked it up at their office in Q Ave. My only problem was that the item I bought was shipped by the merchant on a larger box so I was charged based on volume metric and the cost was higher than what I initially computed/expected, but generally it wasn't FRS's fault. The good thing is inclusive na ng tax ung rate na binayaran ko.

    Hassle lang talaga ung policy ng karamihan na forwarders na volume metric or weight whichever is higher, though dun talaga sila kumikita.

  • Yes. Just like Jinio. Kahit maliit lang ang box na sinlaki lamang ng kaha ng sigarilyo eh sinusukat pa rin nila dimension at tinitimbang para alamin ano ang mas mabigat lalabas. Tapos kahit gaano kaliit ang fraction ng bigat... halimbawa... 1.01 lbs...automatic na sisingilin tayo sa timbang na 2 lbs dahil sa 0.01 na yun. Business is business talaga. ^_^
  • Sa kabilang dulo maganda rin kung malaki ang box lalo na kung pinuno ng pangsecure ng shipper. Talaga lamang ganoon ang kalakaran at dapat maging wais ka kung ikaw ang nagaayos ng box o kung hindi naman asahan mo na lamang na may kaunting dagdag para sa kargamento mo.

    Kasi may minimum sila katulad ng JAC 2 lbs. ang minimum nila. Lahat naman may minimum at dapat alam yan ng lahat ng konsumer ng freight forwarder.
