Step 02: Browse and Shop Your Favorite Products
Etsy is an American e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items and craft supplies. Almost everything that you need, Etsy has it! Browse your favorite products and simply hit “Add to Cart” if you see something you fancy.
Step 03: Review Your Cart and Proceed to Checkout

Step 04: Enter Shipping Address
In the Shipping section,
- Make sure to put your Buyandship USER ID after your name for easier sorting when your parcel arrived at our warehouse address.

In order to get Buyandship’s US Warehouse address, log in to your Buyandship account, under the ‘Overseas Warehouse Address’ section, click on the ‘US’ Tab and all you have to do is just copy and paste.
Once you are done filling out the shipping section, review all the details you input and click “Continue to Payment”

Once you’re on the billing section, choose a payment method. Etsy only accepts either a Credit Card or Paypal. If you choose the Credit Card, make sure to tick off the box that says “My billing address is the same as my shipping address” It is NOT the same! Simply enter your Philippine Address or the address you place in your credit card. To clarify:
- Shipping Address = Buyandship U.S Warehouse Address

Once you’re done, click “Review Order”
Step 06: Review and Submit Order

- Go to ‘Parcel Management’
- Hit ‘Click Here to Add a New Shipment’

Step 09: Wait For Your Parcel To Be in Parcel Management “Arrived At HK Warehouse”
Once it is in “Arrived at HK warehouse” in Parcel Management, you can checkout your shipments separately or consolidate your shipments (not separate items) by ticking on the box next to your tracking number. Once each shipment arrives HK warehouse you have free consolidation services and 42 days of storage. If you want to checkout, fill out the checkout details, and proceed to payment.
Step 10: Pay For Buyandship’s Shipping Rate
We charge purely based on weight so, you don’t have to compute for complicated math equations. Plus, we have the lowest shipping rate in the Philippines! We have 2 Pricing Options: Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU) and Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) Check out the Features of DDP and DDU on the images below:
This goes without saying that if your parcel weighs exactly or less than 1 pound, we only charge you the designated amount but if the weight exceeds 1 pound, we round it up. But don’t worry because you always have the choice to consolidate your items to maximize your money- that’s a whole other conversation so it’s best if you just read more about consolidation here.
Once you get notified that you’re parcel is in our HK Warehouse, all you need to do is pay the service fee before we process it. Buyandship only accepts Internationally accepted Mastercard or Visa or Virtual Cards for a safer and faster way to pay.
Step 11: Wait For Your Products to Arrive in Your Doorstep in the Philippines
Last step! All you have to do is sit, relax, and wait for your parcels to arrive at your doorstep in the Philippines. Get to enjoy your new products directly from Etsy USA and take on this Pandemic fully prepared. Happy shopping!
