Step 11: 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. Dropdown the Delivery Method~ it’s either DDU or DDP option. (If it’s the total value of your shipments are above PHP 10k, we suggest choosing DDP but if it’s below PHP 10k, we suggest DDU)
Step 12: Fill in the other details then click “Selected Consolidated Shipment(s)”
Once each shipment arrives at the HK warehouse you have free consolidation services and 42 days of storage. If you want to checkout, fill in other necessary details and choose which of your parcels will you consolidate. Simply click “Selected Consolidated Shipment(s)” once you have decided.
Step 13: 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 14: Wait For You Products to Arrive on 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. Enjoy your new products directly from Amazon US!
