    I've check their (MyEcasa) website and medyo magulo ang FQAs. Sabi sa site starting July 17 eh Automated Order Processing nadaw sila. So I tried to sign up pero di pa ayos ang website nila. Does it mean they're still using Manual Order process? Tumawag ako pero binabaan agad ako ng telepono haha. 24x7 ba sila or 9-6PM lang?

    Ayun lang. Doble doble gastos pala noh. Pag ok ang experience ko sa MyEcasa baka yun na lang din gamitin ko in the future.

    Ok na sana ako sa MSB kase nakaka discount ako as a GCash AMEX user tapos maganda rin ang support and notifications nila sa email.

    Kaso strikto sila pag meron lithium battery ang electronics na ipapa ship mo.
  • Dapat talaga may nagrereceive kapag weekends eh, di naman kelangan iprocess na nila agad, basta maipasok lang nila sa loob.

    Paano nagkaroon na naman ako ng 'Your package was left near the front door or porch.' mula kay Amazon, at di ko alam kung dahil sa dami ng volume (dahil sa prime day?) ng deliveries pero hanggang ngayon wala pa rin ako update. Jul 18 pa nadeliver.

    Kelangan ko na ba magrequest ng refund/replacement kay Amazon?
  • ^mahal ang sweldo sa America. Per hour and mas mataas pa sweldo pag papasok ng weekends na supposed rest day. Tingin ko lang naman.
  • Sino po dito naka gcash amex + msb? Kamusta first transaction na ginawa niyo? Sakin kasi laging payment denied sa amazon kahit sinunod ko naman exacto yung instructions. Tumawag nako sa 2882 pero wait daw ako 24-48 hrs. titignan nila kung anong issue. Baka may nakaranas dito nung situation ko pa-share naman pano niyo naayos baka may nakaligtaan lang akong gawin pero as far as I know wala talaga eh..

    Me. I used mg local CC to purchase items to Amazon, then when my order reached MSB facility, I used the GCash AMEX to pay for the shipping fee.

    Ganun na lang gawin mo para iwas sakit sa ulo. Is there any error message when you're about to checkout sa Amazon? Pag Gcash AMEX mataas ang dollar rate ha. Don't coompute $1=Php45, make it $1=Php49/50 para sure pasok ang payment mo.
  • ^ Wala akong CC sir eh. Walang error message na lumalabas pero after mga ilang hours, may e-mail na "your payment has been declined" galing kay Amazon. $70 worth ang order ko and I have 5k php naman sa gcash wallet so pasok naman dapat siya..

    Hmmm enough naman yung funds mo pala. Na double check mo ba kung nabasawan funds mo sa GCash?
  • ^ Walang bawas sir. Wala ring confirmation message from Globe.
  • does forex ship items to post office?
  • hi, regarding CA tax.. I was charged about 1,700 bcoz I am shipping it to California, thru MSB. Is it possible na mrefund ko un just like in Amazon? lahat ba nang online shop sa US nagrerefund nang tax if you are shipping it to a forwarding company? please help! sayang din ung tax na un :(
  • For reference on CA sales tax: <click here for link>

    (a) SALES TAX.
    (3) SALES PRECEDING MOVEMENT OF GOODS FROM WITHIN STATE TO POINTS OUTSIDE STATE.
    (A) To Other States—When Sales Tax Applies.
    (B) Shipments Outside the State—When Sales Tax Does Not Apply.
    (C) Exports.
    (D) Proof of Exemption.

    325.0000 INTERSTATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE—REGULATION 1620
    ANNOTATION 325.1536
    (c) SHIPMENTS FROM CALIFORNIA TO POINTS OUTSIDE STATE
    (6) Export Packers and Forwarding Agents

    325.1536 Freight Forwarder.

The shipment to the freight forwarder is a continuation of the interstate journey of the property sold. 7/3/90.


    How about shipment by a California retailer from its California location to a California freight forwarder? Not specified in above.

    I bought some garments stuff from California shipped to MSB which is CA based and it's still taxable too.
  • hello, sino po may experience sa shipping cart by lbc? i'm new to international online shopping kaya di ko alam ang kalakaran dito. anyway tanong ko lang using shipping cart by lbc how much usually ang nadadagdag sa price? halimbawa 100usd yung item sa ebay, how much ang landed price or yung mababayaran all in all sa lbc?
  • ^ it still depends on the size and weight of the item.
  • for example a pair of shoes, magkano ang dagdag nila? nabasa ko kasi sa mga comments mura daw rates ing shipping cart by lbc. gusto ko lang kasi ikumpara sa presyo ng mga local shoe sellers sa fb. kasi kung significant nga ang difference, baka sa shipping cart na lang ako.. kung konti lang din, eh sa fb sellers na lang ako bibili
  • ^punta ka na lang sa website nila. google is your bestfriend. napakadali naman mag research kung gugustuhin. kailangan ba spoonfeeding? punta ka sa website ng LBC shipping cart. Tignan mo yung rates nila para malaman mo kung magkano ang shipping. Depende yung sa bigat ng item na bibilhin mo. Tsaka may tax table din sila. Depende sa item na bibilhin mo, may patong yun. For example. If camera ang bibilhin mo, may tax na $34. Ganoon. Sa shoes ata $10 or something. Look into it.
  • Anyone experienced with this kind of status before?

    Was that through Pobox or Forex?

    Last got HOLD FOR INSPECTION (CUSTOMS) in Jul 2012 and then Jun 2014, both when sending through Pobox. The facility (Price Transfer) was not named in the status then. Never got HOLD FOR INSPECTION when sending through Forex, 2004 to now.

    IIRC, at height of pilferage issue (around early 2012, see page 208 <click here for link>), there was a posting by a Pobox staff member claiming:
    -- that pilferage was being experienced by several forwarders;
    -- that the third party inspection company (Price Transfer) hired by US customs was suspected; and
    -- that the forwarders were considering a class action lawsuit.

    Anyone have the link or page number of the post by Pobox talking about Price Transfer ... something about Price Transfer employees seen carrying backpacks into/out of facility, etc.

    OTOH, there was suspicion that pilferage was on PH side using US Customs/Price Transfer inspections as cover.

    In 2013, according to Pobox:
    There has been a significant decrease of reported cases of pilferage the past 2 months. This is because the random inspection of the U.S. Customs has also decreased in frequency. The class suit that has been filed is still currently in progress.


    What ever happened to the Price Transfer lawsuit? Anyone know?

    Whether the pilferage was on US or PH side, doesn't sound good that US Customs/Price Transfer is doing inspections again.

    Anyone got their box opened and resealed with the green US Customs and Border Protection tape, lately?
