Amazon has raised its international shipping prices - DVDs affected!!!


Recommended Posts



Damm it.. I was holding back a few orders cause I was waiting for one or two disc links to show up.  Looks like have to fall back on VpostUSA already.  What a hassle.

 

Same here. I really shouldn't have waited cos the most important ones to me were Transformers and Spiderman 3 and were already available for pre-order. The other ones were not important at all.. aiyah.. what to do now??

Despite the higher Amazon prices now, I would rather have Amazon send the DVDs over rather than Vpost. I had a very bad experience with Vpost before and so I'm averse to using them unless I really have no choice. Even the 13% discount card I have is not enticing enough.

 

But the first time I asked Vpost to send DVDs over, all my DVDs came through. I don't think customs even inspected the package.

y 1 shipment bro??

 

Its cheaper that way... If u order abt 6-12 discs, Amazon will put them in a box & vpost charge under category "others".

If split shipments, eg 3 discs in 1 shipment - vpost will charge as DVD - base charge + %5+ per disc.

 

During the buy 2 get 1 free promo, Amzon split my shipments (not sure if I clicked the wrong option during order), 1 box with 6 discs & 1 package (just a protective cardboard) with 3 discs. Vpost charged me "others" for the box & "DVD" for the package

No they didn't lose my discs.. It's just that their tracking system gave me the wrong info on the delivery of my things and I thought my package was supposed to arrive in one piece. But in the end, they shipped my things in two packages and another item was placed on hold over in the US. In the end I was told to pay $70 for the delivery of a $35 item, which was not worth it. They refused to waive the charges, except to say they won't charge me the base fee. Even after taking this "discount" into consideration, the shipping fee would be at $58 and was still costlier than the item (if they had delivered all the items in one package, I would not have to pay this extra shipping fee). So in the end I gave them approval to throw the item away... sian...

roughly how much was the vpost charge for 6 DVDs in a box under others?

 

thanks.
