Thread: How long does it take for books from Amazon to be shipped here?

  1. #1

    Default How long does it take for books from Amazon to be shipped here?

    if i wish to order say 5-7 books from Amazon, can they be shipped within 2-3 weeks to Singapore by the cheapest international shipping/air?

    Need them quite urgently. First time ordering. Hee...

    Thanks...

    If they're in stock and if they're all from Amazon and not a store selling through Amazon, then, yes, it is possible to get it within 3 weeks, or at the latest 4. Note that they say "business days", so 15 business days will mean 3 weeks.

    My orders usually take about 2.5 weeks.

    Mine is usually within 2 weeks but you really need them so urgently then maybe it's worthwhile to pay more for shipping to speed up the delivery ...

    almost the same...

    takes about 3-5days to reach the vpost centre, then another 3-5 days for the place to confirm shipment, takes another 5-8 days to reach sg.

    from my experience, if the product is heavy, vpost charges u more than the seller. and it won't shorten the overall delivery time due to troublesome paperwork.

    if it's not urgent, juz ask your seller to ship u by USPS. of cos, you can't trace the location of parcel.

    vPost isn't necessarily cheaper or faster. Use vPost only for shops that do not ship directly to SG.
