Online Shopping with USA2Everywhere


Check out what landed in my mailbox a few days ago.

When it comes to shopping in the US, Johnny Air Cargo is king of the hill, but after someone commented that JAC doesn't consolidate packages anymore and now charges per package, it became imperative to look for an alternative, and USA2Everywhere seemed promising.

First good news is that USA2Everywhere consolidates packages (yay!). However, it charges a handling fee of $7 (approx. Php296.45) per package BUT if you properly identify the product and provide the tracking number, then the $7 is whittled down to a mere $2 (approx. Php84.70). Please click here for the FAQ page.

Pricing is the same with JAC, with a minimum of $19.99 (approx. Php846.57) for 1/2 kg and below but RCBC Mastercard has this ongoing promo where they'll knock off 20% off your shipping total with purchases made using an RCBC Mastercard. The promo period is until May 31, 2012 and I'll try to make a purchase to check out if USA2Everywhere delivers (pun intended). As always, my future online shopping escapade is in the name of retail science and is specially for my readers... :p

Ok, enough chitchat, have to get ready for our Baguio-Sagada road trip! Have a great weekend everyone :)

They were good at first but on my second package, i got charged 8000PHP for 2 shoes and 4 shirts. Ingat nalang

What?! For Php8,000 shipping and handling, I'd expect them to ship a balikbayan by airfreight, and not merely 2 pairs of shoes and 4 shirts :(

i was planning to buy couple of shirts from USA online stores and have it ship to the philippine by USA2Pilipinas. But my concern is the custom tax and duties that i will be facing with when my shipment arrives.

Can I ask them to declare my items as Gifts or whatsoever? How much was your custom duties? if my package is worth 400 dollars how much would i pay for customs?

I tried it out and I wasn't charged taxes. I guess the delivery charge already included the customs tax and duties?

Hi Jaspax,

I'm sorry but I never pushed through with using USA2Pilipinas' service so I really can't answer your question :(

Wala po ba hidden charges ang usa2everywhere. kung ano yung price na lumabas sa calculator nila eh ganun talaga yung babayaran?

Hi Patriciajen,
 
From what I know you'll have to pay for shipping + handling. You can use the shipping calculator to figure out shipping costs, then there's a $7 shipping fee per item, but you can whittle down the shipping fee to $2/item if you provide the product details and shipping number.
 
Hope I was able to help :)

Thanks for this post, Jill! this is exactly what I've been looking for......an alternative to JAC. I'll definitely try this out and will give some feedback :)
