Size Doesn’t Matter
Holidays are almost here! Excited? Or stressed?
If that stress is over how much extra you pay for shipping your Black Friday purchases and Christmas prezzies from the US and Europe, you will be glad to know that vPost is having a promotion during the week of 5th Dec to 7th Dec where all packages will be charged based on what they weigh. With this new calculation, online shopping is more savings, less fuss – exactly what it should be.
Here’s a quick example, following up from our previous post, of what you can expect now when you use your vPost address.
If you are shopping, say, in the US:
|Package Details||Value of Product||Actual Weight||Shipping Cost||CIF
1 SGD = 1.3871 USD)
|USD $100||2.1kg||SGD $32.51||SGD $171.22|
|USD $50||0.5kg||SGD $4.55||SGD $73.91|
|USD $530||3.5kg||SGD $85.54||SGD $767.01|
Shipping cost breakdown:
(Base Fee) + (Weight x Shipping fee) + (Weight x Fuel Surcharge)
Forever 21 Package : $13.40 + (21 x 0.72) + (21 x 0.19) = $32.51
ColourPop Package: FREE + (5 x 0.72) + 5 x 0.19) = $4.55
Nordstrom Package: FREE + (35 x 0.72) + (35 x 0.19) + (GST:7% x SGD767.01) = $85.54
Hope this quick breakdown shows you why size doesn’t matter!
