I have been wanting to shop online. Ebay perhaps, they are so many good stuff online, Ebay Malaysia sucks, but Ebay USA, Ebay Canada etc are pretty cool, and Old Navy, Forever 21(as far as i know dirt cheap in US), Le Chateau, Suzy Shier, etc etc… but it is the shipping charges from the US to Malaysia which kills the fun of online shopping, mostly apparels which i am interested in.
What i gathered online are some intermediary method of having your goods shipped to these US address, and they will send you the items, perhaps lower price? Shipping of goods to local US address is fine as many retailers offers free shipping locally if you spend over certain amount of money, but i am wondering what is the cheapest and best ways to ship stuff over to Malaysia, also without incurring import charges from Malaysian custom
1. vPOST Globalshopping, which is spending so much on advertising, you can see many nuffnangers writing adverts for vPOST. Shipping Charge
Anyone have experience on any of the above service? or what is the best way to ship stuff over to Malaysia. The charges calculations are kinda confusing, some has mandatory base charges(vPOST charge SGD$23.40(about RM52) of base charges, bizsouq charge RM60 base charge), some offer option to consolidate of package which is a good thing(ComGateway offers option to consolidate). According to ComGateway, they will give US address in Oregon which is a tax free state(although i don’t know how it will affect the shipping charges). ComGateway use DHL for its delivery which makes it more reliable? After considering some of the above factors, i find ComGateway could be the cheapest and most reliable choice, if i ship the item to Singapore(since my brother lives there, and come back once in a while), shipping for 1st kg is US$21.40(about RM75) and subsequent 0.5kg only US$3.15. Coming up second is vPOST per kg is about RM77 (base charge of SGD$23.40 + perkg of SGD$11.60)
So any of you have personal experience which shipping from other countries to Malaysia?
