Why Should You Consolidate Your Shipments?



Paying for multiple international shipping fees for multiple shipments are such a hassle and super expensive!

We mean, sure, some overseas retailers offer affordable international shipping fees, and some may even offer free worldwide shipping with a minimum order but sometimes you never really get to have either of these options. No matter which way, it is all costly all the same!

With Buyandship, this is something you no longer have to worry about. When your parcels arrived at our Hong Kong warehouse, you can choose whether to send your parcels individually or consolidate your items into one shipment! And the best part? You don’t have to pay for it, we have FREE Consolidation and Storage for 30 days.


Why Should I Consolidate?


One of the advantages of consolidating your parcels is being able to MAXIMISE your shipping fees with Buyandship. Let’s say you have THREE shipments stored in our Hong Kong warehouse, weighing 1.2 lbs, 1.3 lbs and 2.5 lbs, respectively.

Generally, the delivery fee will be calculated based on your consolidated shipment, but do bear in mind id shipped individually, Buyandship will round to the next whole pound for the chargeable weight. If you were to arrange for individual shipping, you’d be paying PHP 2,100 for 7 lbs!



By consolidating, instead of paying for the weight for three individual shipments, you’ll get the added weight of all of your parcels which can guarantee less chargeable weight and more savings for you. If you combine your parcels, as stated in the example above, you only have to pay for 5 lbs or PHP 1,500. That means you’ll SAVE PHP 600!
