Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


A small gift package that is delivered to your friends and loved ones in the Philippines via Buyandship.

“Is there a shipment size restriction”

If deemed necessary, our warehouse will repack and replace packaging without prior notice. Every single shipment (Per Tracking number) must not exceed 50 pounds. If the single parcel exceeds 20 pounds, please do not consolidate it with other parcels. After the parcel consolidation:

  • Each side cannot exceed 100 CM
  • The sum of all 3 sides cannot exceed 150 CM
  • Volumetric Weight can not exceed 5 times the actual weight

Note: Calculation for Volumetric Weight: [Length (CM) x Width (CM) x Height (CM)] ÷ 6,000 x 2.2046

If the parcel exceeds any of the above limitations, additional charges may be required. The parcel may also be rejected by the overseas warehouse or the delivery fee may be calculated by Volumetric Weight

“What are the items we can and cannot send out?”

Please read “Prohibited Items Catalog” before sending out a parcel. If you have doubts or unclear products, you can message us on Facebook, Instagram, or start a webchat on the site to confirm if we’ll allow your item. It’s better to be safe and sure.

“How about custom tax and duties when it reached the Philippines?”

For the under Php 10k of no duty and tax rule, it is the combined shipment value on the same day it passes through PH customs. Even if you created separate shipment orders, PH Customs will combine the value of all orders that are sent to the same consignee on the same day to assess de minimis value.

To be eligible for the no-duty and tax rule, make sure the total value of your shipments will not exceed Php 10k, then track your shipments and wait until the total shipments pass PH customs, then send the next batch of shipment(s).

That is also given that your declaration is correct and approved by PH customs valuation. Customs have the final decision on taxation and Buyandship is not liable for any taxation problem or government policy changes. Please note that the Php 10k and the forex rate are determined by PH customs at the time of PH customs assessment.

In light of this, if you don’t want to go through the hassle of processing duties and tax, we have a solution for you: we recently launched a new pricing option, Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) This option will allow you to have more convenience and less hassle as Buyandship arranges for the duty and tax rather than the other option of Delivery Duty Unpaid wherein you are billed by local courier for duty and tax. We are offering this option indefinitely, so, make sure to take advantage of it!
