Price Comparison: Direct Shipping vs. Via Buyandship

February 14, 2020

Don’t you just hate it when you find the best deal or item in an overseas online shop but you found out that they don’t ship in the Philippines or worse, the international shipping fee costs more than the item you’ve wanted to buy? This is where Buyandship Philippines come in to help you with your international shipping needs!

Direct Shipping Fee costs $25.00! That costs more than the actual product which is only $23.96

Unlike if you ship it to the Buyandship US Address, it’s way cheaper. It only costs $10.76!

Our team list down a few reasons why you should ship overseas products using Buyandship Philippines and not ship them directly:

  1. Some international online stores that provide free worldwide shipping usually comes with a minimum purchase that goes way over your budget. It’s not that convenient especially if you’re only purchasing a small amount.

  2. Not all free international shipping includes tracking. You may be left wondering where your package is 2 weeks later! Unlike when you have it delivered to your Buyandship Warehouse Address, they’ll send you multiple notifications as to where your parcel is.

  3. Some international online stores will require you to pre-pay customs and duty charges, which can add up to the cost of shipping! And honestly, who needs more fees?

So before you buy an item overseas, think first! Instead of paying an arm and a leg for direct international shipping, shop online overseas using Buyandship 👀

Most online retailers and stores provide FREE domestic/local shipping. Select the nearest Buyandship warehouse to your retailer/store and enjoy free shipping within the same country. Effectively, you’ll only be paying Buyandship’s forwarding service of PHP 350/lb Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) and PHP 600 Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) to ship from overseas! Check out the link below to know the difference between these two pricing options.

Please note that if the total value of your shipments is above Php 10k there will be PH customs clearance fees, separate from our shipping fee that is paid to a local courier, either COD or bank transfer, and sent to your home. If Php 10k or below, then you will only pay our shipping fee 🙂

To enjoy no duty and tax, you need to checkout from HK under Php 10k total value of shipments regardless of how many shipments, then TRACK until it passes PH customs, then send the next batch.
