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

  • Exactly, yan nga ineexplain ko kanina. My point is walang connection yung 10K limit for tax dun sa additional P560.


    Brokerage/handling/document stamp fee nila ito pag may customs clearance for items >P10k. Meron din neto sa ibang courier kagaya ng UPS, DHL at TNT Express. Magkakaiba lang sila ng tawag. Hingi kayo sa FedEx ng tax invoice para makita nyo breakdown ng duties and taxes.

    Humingi ng P560 siguro dahil hindi ito covered ng tax deposit na binabayaran natin sa US retailer (i.e. Newegg, Amazon etc.). Yung P560 kasi eh parang commission na yan ng FedEx customs clearance agent dito sa Pinas.

    On a side note, medyo magulo talaga kausap FedEx PH kaya mas ok pa din sa UPS or DHL kahit mas mahal.

    Hindi lang yun para sa 10k+ worth na items. Nagpaship ako dati single item worth $25, nagbayad na nga ako ng halos $50 na shipping fee kasi kailangan ko agad yung item. Pagdating sa pinas tumawag at gustong maningil ng P500+ bago magdeliver. Parang warehouse fee daw ata yon, per day daw ang ganung amount. Sabi ko pano kung ayaw ko bayaran dahil wala namang sinabing ganyan nung nag order ako at ang mahal na nga ng shipping fee? Di raw nila idedeliver sa address ko ang item. Kaya mula noon di na ko gumagamit ng FedEx. Tagang taga e.

    Wareheouse fee nga ito, pag natengga sa FedEx naniningil yan kapag nahold ang item ng 1 day or more o kaya walang nag-receive sa delivery address. Nangyari sakin dati dahil ang bagal nila mag clear sa customs. Natengga ng 5 days sa kanila. Sinisinging ako ng P500 per day. Simula noon UPS or DHL na ang gamit kong courier.

  • @eille1221 - I will not share how somebody can do it pero makikita talaga info including package details and full info ng recipient.

    For example, ung nag share ng tracking number ending of ZFGS, his delivery address is Cainta Rizal with an item ex: echo dot.

    Ending in WEMH is from Iloilo, sample item is LED light.
  • Bakit ako last Oct. Used SC, 15 days air cargo, from time when i paid and they said it will ship, to delivery. So, hindi lang dahil Xmas season. I'm in Metro Manila. Ngayon ganun din, paid dec. 14, est. Arrival dec. 24. I doubt this will arrive in time and if ever wala din magdeliver sa xmas day.
  • Ang kainis dyan, 35 days lang sea cargo ng Forex. $25 lang small box. Unliweight basta pasok sa size ng box. Taga at mabagal tong SC!
  • BTW already used DHL, and took 3 days lang. None paid when delivered.
  • @Conner, october din nag SC ako. nadeliver sakin 5 days lang mula nang matanggap nila ang item

    I just did today and cancelled din nila.
  • @geoff114

    Kahit on-time yung package at walang re-delivery na nangyari meron paring 560. Automatic na daw yun ngayon sabi ng FedEx hotline basta nga non-document. Kaya nga sabi ko walang connection to dun sa 10K limit.
  • For BestBuy purchases, course it through Google Express. Yun nga lang hindi lahat ng BestBuy items andun.
  • d00dz Some of my friends were taxed by customs on recent Shippingcart packages with over 10 items. Please be advised accordingly.


    Sir air or sea?
  • kevindd992002


    Did that already last Wednesday sa Google Express,. Out of stock na yung item, eventhough there are lots of stock sa BB.
  • Hay. Akala ko mauuna Jinio Air pero nauna pa MSB air.

    Timeline:
    Jinio
    November 28 arrival at jinio and Novembber 29 payment posted.
    Status: Until now in transit to Philippines pa rin.

    MSB
    December 5 - paid
    December 17 - arrived.
  • @Conner

    Then you won't be able to buy the item na. BestBuy, Target, NewEgg, etc. are strict with freight forwarder addresses and I hate them for that.
  • Tanong lng po sir/maam kung ano sa mga forwarder ang suggested kung malaki yung package at over $500 worth na by sea at kung meron pang babayaran na customs?

    Johnny air kc palagi kong ginagamit kaso by air lng sila.
    Tnx
  • ^try mo forexcargo.us. One of the pioneers yan. Parang nag improve na rin sila from csr, website and app interface. Right now, nag iipon pa ko ng items para mapuno yung large box nila. How is JAC? Mahal ba pero mabilis?

  • ^Direct po ba door to door at wla ng customs fee? Yung pinag pipilian ko kc ngaun ay pobox o shippingcart pero d pa ko sure dahil ko pa na try kita ko kc pangit dw customer service ng pobox at iba pang negative reviews. Yung shipping cart nmn parang may extra charge kung sumobra ng $500 di lng ako sure.

    Okay nmn JAC kaso lng pag gumamit ng malaking box yung seller sa maliit mong order lugi ka haha. kpag malaki kc yung volume dun sla mag base ng fee dpendi kung saan mas malaki. Usually 1-2 weeks yung shipping pero usually 1 week nandito na kung hindi syado congested like holiday seasons. Yun nga lng parang old school pa rin yung interface ng website kelangan mo pa mag email sa kanila para mag hingi ng updates.

    Yung gusto ko i try kung by air is ang jinio kc parang maganda yung website interface nila ma track mo yung package mo kung nakarating na sa kanila at dun na lahat nangyayari ang usapan nyu d na kailangan mag email at ok din dw customer service.
  • ^yes of course. as i have said, pioneer sila. Ibig sabihin, halos sila ang nag start nyang door to door from the US. Galing ako ng America, at sikat ang Forex dun sa mga Pinoy. Ito rin gamit ko noon to send balikbayan boxes papunta dito noon, Yung Pobox, nakikiride lang sa Forex. Kapatid ata ng may ari yun.

  • Oo nakikiride lang pobox sa forex saka sa lbc haha. Mas mabagal na nga, may patong pa.
  • ^I think sa Forex lang since kapatid daw ng may-ari. I've used pobox before, mga 2015, at ok naman baka nagbago na?

    About my problem using Best Buy, I have found a run-around! And it's a no brainer lol.. i bought a BB gift card sa Walmart and used it to purchase in BB. Why didn't i think about it earlier?! Lol
  • ^^
    i did the same thing on gamestop as well and it worked. Did you use your shipping cart address on best buy? i tried different ways of addressing but none worked.
  • @conner thanks. Check ko forex.
  • anu ba altenative sa shippingcart... may issue ata sa newbalance yung address nila...

    twice kasi ako nag-order sa newbalance.com and all wen thru naman ... but naka-receive ako ng email na na-decline.
    nag-email ako sa kanila kung ano dahilan... eto sagot...

  • @plutho - meron talagang mga site na hindi nag dedeliver sa forwarding companies, example dito ay Dell US. So, you need a forwarding company na parang individual ( kung meron mang ganun na address /service )
  • @CrazyKid

    I did not sent it to shippingcart but to Forex. Marami kc. I thought nga this was the reason It got canceled kc i bought 7pcs of the same item at once. But since nabasa ko dito, mukhang because of lbcshipping cart kaya sa iba ko sinend kahit GC, and it went through. I will try again next, using lbc shipping cart address soon.
