After hearing many recommending vpost services at many forums, I've finally gave them a consider and task them to ship my US purchases.
Apparently, after 3 weeks, I'm still waiting for my items to arrive despite the fact that I've informed them via ISO9001 standard of admin follow up. I really need someone to tell me and SHOUT it positively that their service really save you money and their delivery is prompt and no nonsense.
What I usually do is leave it to the merchants as reputable merchants like bhphotos, adorama always get a good reliable courier for all their deliveries hence I'm quite happy to wait for about 1 week before getting them. The only complain I have with overseas merchants is when their couriers don't do clearance at the custom due to GST payment. That includes USpostal FYI. All other major couriers like UPS and Fedex does it for you and save you the trouble of going to Paya Lebar to pay your tax.
So after hearing many forums singing praises that you can consolidate your parcels and ship them together, you get to save on freight - I'm having doubts now. Apparently they cooked up a story for me from Vpost Singapore saying my merchant had not stated my account ID (they call it a VP number) when I received the confirmation emails from my merchants even stating a kiasu remark from me by repeating my VP number twice in the name fields - once in first name and a second repeat on my last name. That is why I'm convince my merchants couldn't have made the mistake that Vpost claims.
They are also charging me sky high delivery charges which are higher than my merchants sending me direcly via Fedex.
I'm want to know whether did any of you encounter such lame services probably from overseas Vpost centres and when you combine parcels, do the total shipping amount get sumed up hence risking over SGD400 and requires for GST payment.
