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

  • ^ recent shipment ko ganyan din. 7 days bago naiship after payment. Kung di ko pa kiinontak via chat baka di pa naiship in 7 days. After i ship na delay pa sa china so inabot ako 14 days after payment.
  • ^ shocks excited pa naman ako sa binili ko nakupu langhiyang SC kasi to walang penalty kapag late ang delivery nila kaya matapang na kahit ma delay ang shipment nila is ok lang hays pag nag eemail ako eh ang sagot ma dedeliver daw sa promised date kaya maghintay nalang daw ako pero duda talaga ako kasi imposible na yun pag ganun.
  • Kaya pala....

    (As per SC)

    Our courier updated their tracking system recently which affected the updates we pull from their end so the update of packages gets delayed from our end. We're already working on this so we can update the tracker the same day the update is posted on our courier's end.
  • Good day bro's
    baka may makatulong lang re: ShippingCart medyo malabo yung sagot nila sa email ko, got questions baka merong may personal experience na:

    1. will be buying from dell online ( there will be no issue on payment, US credit card will be used). On shipping, will Dell online accept the Shipping Cart as delivery location? I've read some reviews that Dell online do not accept forwarders.

    2. If they don't accept forwarders and I will ship it to a US residence address, is it possible to send the package from US residence to the ShippingCart address.

    Im not considering DHL and Fedex for this, because of horror stories specially custom duties

    Estimated delivery time lang ang 5-7 days na advertisement nila. Technically speaking, excused ang forwarders for delays. Hindi na talaga sulit ang air freight kasi mahal na nga parang surface mail pa sa sobrang bagal. Sa logistics, apparently applicable pa rin ang Filipino time lol.

  • Hi,

    First time to use SC and I have 2 packages sent to their warehouse and they divided it into 4.
    There's a note on from the warehouse saying PLS BE MIND FULL OF COMMERCIAL QUANTITY 12PCS. SPLIP YOUR SHIPMENT IN TO 3 PARCELS.
    Does it mean I need to pay it 3x?

    Also, how can I attach photo here? :)
  • affected ba cargo sa corona travel restrictions?
  • @shekinah
    yes. Ask SC for more details.
    upload a photo to photobucket/imgur or other free photo hosting site, copy the link and paste it inside the brackets when you click on "image" on the top of the message box
    [url link to your photo must be inside the bracket]

    @lex
    #2 Yes pwede magpadala from US address to SC's address
  • affected ba cargo sa corona travel restrictions?


    Ask them sa support site, email, facebook nila before shipping anything.
    Sa shippingcart for instance ok naman sa facebook, you just need to type sa messenger nila na "Talk to an agent" para mabypass yung bot.

    In my case, I've just shipped a laptop via Jinio and to be sure, I've message them both via email and facebook but mas mabilis ang response nila sa facebook to the point na ilang minutes lang kahit around 11pm pa ko nagmessage, may sumagot din agad.
    According to them, di naman daw affected yung shipment kahit may nCoV outbreak, so tuloy tuloy lang.

    ----------

    I'll take this time na din to comment on Jinio as it was 3 years since I last used the service, although they charge an additional tax/duties for highend electronics such as phones and laptops (ranging from $25-$30 flat) halos konti lang difference nya sa pricing, home delivery included vs sa Shippingcart. Another difference is that, max lang ng $500 yung kaya ng insurance in case mawala yung item mo unlike shippingcart na up to $500, free pa sya. But mas lamang pa din shippingcart when it comes to speed.

    Comparing the 2, may laptop akong binili using both service. Both are 6lbs in weight.
    Sa Shippingcart, $82 yung shipping kasama na special handling fee, flat rate na $10 at yung extra bayad sa insurance since ang value ng unang laptop ko is $750 including tax sa California via ebay US (680 yung orig price, at 70 naman yung tax). Laptop is an Asus Zephyrus GM501.

    The second laptop naman is an MSI GS65 9SE 2019 which has a value of $850 but 795 yung orig price but 45 lang yung tax sa Conneticut. Price ng shipping declaring only $100 sa insurance worth (yun ang free nila, +$16 kung $500 max ang declared) plus $6 delivery fee deretso sa bahay and $30 duty around $87 naman ang total shipping fee nila. That's a difference of around 250+ pesos but yun nga lang, mas mababa insurance if ever may mangyari.

    So kahit mababa yung tax mo sa Jinio, for laptops, mas mataas pa yung rate nya kesa sa Shippingcart.
    So the question is, bakit Jinio yung pinili ko for the shipment and not SC? The reason is that, hindi pa kasama yung shipping fee which nagvavary depende kung saan location ng seller. In my case, if pinaship ko sya ng California, including the shipping fee, aabot sa 50,200 yung babayaran ko all in all unlike sa conneticut na mas malaki yung binaba which is around 47,000 pesos lang since nasa east coast lang din yung seller via a very pricey 2 day priority delivery. Another advantage is that si Jinio is not flagged as a forwarder kasi it uses personal mailbox. If you input the address of Jinio's warehouse sa streetview makikita mo na bahay lang sya sa suburb. May mga seller at retailer kasi na nagcacancel ng purchases if shipping address mo is a known freight forwarder.

    Ang problem, yung ATM card ko na nakapair sa paypal ay may max lang per transaction na 50,000 pesos a day so I had no choice but to choose Jinio. In the end, mas nakatipid pa din ako if isasama ko yung natipid ko sa shipping kahit na nagdagdag pa ko ng additional na $16 (850 php) for the insurance para umabot sa $500 yung coverage nya. But again, since kababayad ko lang today, ang estimated delivery date nya is April 3 pa.

    Note lang sa mga dati ng nagregister sa Jinio, they have already change the address ng warehouse nila, buti na lang nacheck ko before magcheckout. Baka lang nakapoint out pa din kayo sa dating address, mawala yung shipment nyo.
  • Guys may mga naka pag padala ba ngayun sa inyo outside luzon? May gusto akong bilhin via SC ko e ship. Nag aalala lang ako baka ma tambay siya o di madeliver ng dahil sa lockdown. Baka kasi abutin pa ng end ng lock down before ma deliver.
  • Pag direct ka bumili sa Amazon, sa post office pa din ba bagsak nun?
  • ^
    yung experience ko sakin hindi.. direct sa doorsteps, less than $100 value
  • Anong courier nagdeliver boss? Parang nabasa ko dati DHL ata?
  • ^
    Sorry sir, hindi ko napansin sa packaging, hindi rin kasi ako yung nag receive

    Pero sa order ko sa amazon, nakalagay shipped by Apex, pero parang local partner nya ang Ninjavan, sila nagdala sa bahay
  • Pag direct ka bumili sa Amazon, sa post office pa din ba bagsak nun?


    Kapag expedited shipping, Apex (US) tapos iturnover sa Ninjavan (Ph). Not sure kung ganun pa rin ang arrangement ngayon. Kung global priority shipping, UPS ang courier. Mas mahal nga lang ang rates.

  • Nagdedeliver pa rin sila(shippingcart, LBC, Jinio)? Specifically dito sa Cavite?
  • Sorry sa OT pero may alam po nagshi-ship via sea na local sa pinas? Like balikbayan-sized box from manila to cebu or Cagayan de Oro.
  • try inquiring from apcargo, abest express, and 2go. di ba pwede lbc?
  • Nagdedeliver pa rin sila(shippingcart, LBC, Jinio)? Specifically dito sa Cavite?


    You can ask them via Facebook. I have an incoming shipment probably by next week and Jinio said that they will still continue the deliveries throughout the quarantine period here in the Metro. Not sure about outside Metro Manila though. Shippingcart on the otherhand, I have a hard time messaging them. But you could try via email.
  • @marbleygloo thanks try ko po. Ayaw ni LBC nung nagtanong ako sa branch nila last month
  • Ayaw ni LBC nung nagtanong ako sa branch nila last month
