  • alternative to Vpost: comgateway

    As mentioned in Urban: comgateway provides you with a fowarding address in Oregon, a tax-free state.

    Website: www.comgateway.com

    Charges: US$17 for first kg, $2 for each subsequent kg.

    Delivery time: 4 business days

    Eligibility: DBS mastercard holders

    I tried to sign up on the site and it seems like only credit card holders can apply. But I only have a debit card

    It seems to be a really fast way to ship stuff in bulk, like for sprees!

    I did a rouge calculation and compared it with Vpost and Vpost is still more affordable. The different is around $5 - $8 SGD. Unless you want your items fast and have people to share the shipping with you, ComGateway will be a better choice.

      It sounds good! The tax free part especially, seeing how we pay US$7 in tax for every US$100 if we ship to most states.

        I have an account with them already =) already have my american address haha but i dont know how to organise spree.

        True, i think it is cheaper with Vpost but i heard of cotters complaining their stuffs lost through Vpost but i dont know how safe is the gateway thing also. =)

            I went thru the website but I can't see who are the merchants I can shop with before I register with them.

                linggy, do they have service whereby they will help you order from sites that only accepts US credit cards? u know like to be launched Vconcierge.

                a rough comparision using my recent gojane-vpost (non app) order :
                vol weight 3.3kg
                vpost charges + cali tax (7.25%) : S$33.06 + S$18.58 = S$51.64
                comgateway : S$39.56 (4kg)

                  lingy can you post up the list of websites? TIA! Sounds like their pricing is better for heavy shipments since anything over 1kg is just US$2 per kg. Worth signing up for a DBS credit card!

                        The price difference is there between Vpost n this, but we can use this to ship Sales item from AnF whereas we can't use it for Vpost... but sigh, I don't have a DBS Mastercard.

                            I registered and have an account with them but I had yet to start using. They were very prompt in answering questions though and they have an online customer service which allow instant aid online, quite cool.

                              may not be. they only ship to residential address, so if its a shipping company address like vpost, they'll not ship there still....
