    Last Forex box took 10 days to ship from time of request + additional 9 days to invoice, total 19 days to invoice. Supposedly due to the volume that they are getting, nothing to do with PH customs. (?)

    I stand corrected. Called them yesterday and they said it was the volume of packages because of their recent Citibank promo.

    They said I was still #10 in line on the consolidation process. -.-
  • Hello to all, 1st timer here in tipidpc pero may karanasan na since 2013 till now sa pobox.ph(6 boxes) at MSB (60+shipments). Tanong ko lng kung may naka try na ba magpadala sa pobox ng electronics na mas malaki pa sa mga box nila, gs2 ko kce bumili ng yamaha keyboard ngayon black friday, may naka try na ba? Anong item at magknao nabayran niyo? Yung dim weight ata ng keyboard is malaki pa sa green box ng pobox, though medyo malabo ma consolidate pero pwede ba?

    May incident na rin ako about stolen items pero hindi ako sure kung US Customs yun, ang nawala sa akin is 4 pcs na eneloop batteries, 8 pcs binili ko sa amazon, though dumaan sa US Customs inspection pero duda ako yung seller mismo sa amazon is 4 pcs lng talaga binigay, at yun lng din nawala kung 8pcs talaga binigay.

    Nagtaas na pala ng $10 ang pobox kakatanggap ko lng ng email at medyo masakit na rin ang $ ngayon, sana bumaba pagdating ngayon Nov.
  • acceptable pa din ba sa amazon ang bpi e-prepaid card?
  • Guys, down ba ang website ng Forex?

    Sa odd box sizes, kung alam mo dimensions ng yamaha keyboard shipping box in inches, use the PObox shipping calculator para malaman mo ang estimated cost. <click here for link>
  • ^ then e-mail Forex for an estimate. No idea how Forex comes up with its price for oversize boxes. Anyone know? But it always seems to be much less than Pobox's formula.
  • @vicoyblue

    oo matagal ko na na try sa pobox pero maxado pa rin malaki yung cost, yung estimated dim weight kce is 81 lbs which $174 malaki talaga ang tubo kumpara sa green box nila na 62 lbs pero nasa $85 lng, baka mag charge pa sila ng tariff diyan isa din yan sa pinangangambahan ko. Sa MSB din lalong hindi pwede kce aabot ng $305 kung sa kanila, e mas mahal pa yung shipping kesa worth ng item. Ang sa forex ang hindi ko alam, pero mas maganda din pag may mga naka try na ng ganito kalaki dito ang dim weight at kung may extra ba silang binayaran.
  • guys.. sira po yata websyt ng... forex tracking? 3 days nako nagtry.. wala parin.. gumagana ba?
  • @bluegarnet0704

    just as an example of oversize boxes, some boxes I sent thru pobox late last year:
    . 9x10x48 - $80.00
    .16x20x31 - $80.00
    .20x22x18 - $62.50
    .32x16x27 - $120.00
    .12x15x24 - $52.50
    .32x21x14 - $80.00

    @cadr

    ang pobox eh sumasakay lang sa Forex kaya mas mataas palagi ang charges nila. almost USD 5 to 10 na mas mataas sa Forex from small to bigger boxe (green). ang kaso lang sa Forex di sila tumatanggap ng payment thru paypal...

    Working for me as of now. Requested Jul 31, shipped Aug 10, departed Aug 15, invoiced Aug 19. Anyone else departed Aug 15 already asked container and vessel number?

    Yes, no problem for boxes up to 65 linear inches. Understandable that Pobox may be a little more than Forex. The problem is for above 65 inches. Pobox formula is $75 + (L + W + H - 65)*4.50. In other words, the green box price plus $4.50 per linear inch in excess of 65 inches. As box size increases, this formula just keeps going and going ... up and up ... linearly, in proportion to excess inches. Whereas Forex formula (unpublished, anyone know what it is?) is less than linear.

    Examples:
    Linear inches -- Pobox -- Forex
    75 -- $120.00 -- $85 [Vicoyblue 32x16x27]
    76 -- $124.50 -- $85
    88 -- $178.50 -- $100
    137 -- $399 -- $250
    141 -- $417 -- $255

    Forex is applying (giving the benefit of) economies of scale to its direct customers. I assume (?) that Forex is also applying these economies to Pobox, but Pobox is using a very simplistic formula for oversize boxes and not passing the economies of scale to its (Pobox) customers.

  • How do I get items from Forex? How do I use them? How does their system work (I've only used Johnny Air)
    Their website seems to be down so I have no idea how their service works
    And if Forex is cheaper than Pobox, and Pobox rides with Forex (according to a post i saw), why choose Pobox over Forex? Which of the two is more reliable?


    Also. I would like to know if there are services like Johnny Air/Pobox but that ships from China to Manila?

    Thank you very much

  • @Filtrans

    In my case kasi, I can only settle the payment using my paypal account otherwise I will choose Forex instead. Pobox is reliable based from my experience. I believe Forex as well as both of them are on the same boat.

    @cadr

    nice presentation of formula. budget wise, it is better to use Forex instead of pobox.
    How's then the customer service of Forex?
  • hi, getting advise for LBCShippingcart :) long time user ng MSB but they charge packages using volumetric weight even if it's being transported via air :( switched to LBC for consolidation

    as of now, eto ung status ng shipment ko:

    08/29/2015 12:00:51 AM ACTUAL ARRIVAL MANILA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

    question is, do they work on weekends and holidays? :) medyo atat lang hahaha

  • [ Forex Aug 15 departed, container OOLU890721, OOCL Luxembourg 032W, BINDI IPSA 003W ]

    When e-mailing Forex for your container number and vessel, please request Forex to automatically show container number (at least) on tracking info page so that we do not have to ask them every time.

    Container and vessel number was already put on Forex tracking page before, then disappeared for some reason.
