Do you want to shop at U.S. Online Stores while in the Philippines? Shipping a product internationally can be a problem and Shipping Cart is our best solution.
When I’m shopping at Amazon.com, I always use a third party shipping service like Shipping Cart. This is definitely the best way to ship your shopping items from US to Philippines as it will help you save a lot of time and money. Shipping Cart will provide you a virtual U.S. shipping address, which does all the trick. This allows you to manage your orders from the U.S. and have them ship to your Philippine home address safely. The process will also prevent the Philippine Bureau of Customs on getting hold of your items that could only lead to high taxes.
Now Here are the Easy Steps
1—- Create a Shipping Cart account
Head over to www.shippingcart.com and register. Once your account is created, you will be provided with a specific Virtual US address – this is the shipping address that you’ll have to use when shopping at Amazon. A different account number is generated per account. While you’re logged in, you can easily find your assigned account number and address at left side of the page. Here’s a screenshot of below:
2—- Start your Shopping at Amazon!
Head over to Amazon.com and add items to your shopping cart. I actually ordered 3 items – a corset, watch and a headset. During checkout, the shipping address you must enter should be the Virtual US address provided by Shipping Cart. Here’s a screenshot on how I entered my address on Amazon’s website:
Make sure to enter all the information correctly then complete the Checkout process. Next you'll just have to wait until your orders are delivered to your US virtual address.
3—- Confirm the Shipment
Shipping Cart will immediately notify you through email once your orders are delivered. You must log in to Shipping Cart’s website (www.shippingcart.com) to confirm the shipment going to Philippines. If you don’t see any stored items, you may need to wait a few more days. Mine took roughly 4 days before it got displayed on their website, so just be patient. You’ll see the details under the My Storage tab. Here’s a screenshot:
As you can see , there's already a price estimation. The 3 items only cost 1,155 Pesos to ship to the Philippines. Shipping Cart also allows you to choose either Sea Cargo or Air Cargo (Sea Cargo is for heavy or bulky items). They also give you the opportunity to insure your freight for free up to $500. After selecting your preferred options, just hit the button that says, "Ship It."
4—- Pay the Shipment
After the confirmation, you’ll have to choose your payment method and shipping address. For payment, you can select Cash (through an LBC Branch), Credit Card, or PayPal. For shipping address, just enter your Philippine home address or wherever you want the package to be delivered. Once you have chosen your preferred options, just hit the button that says, “Pay & Ship.” Here’s a screenshot:
Before you hit "Pay & Ship," make sure to double-check your shipping address. If you choose Cash payment, you will need to go immediately to the nearest LBC branch to pay the shipping fee personally. Tell the staff that you will make payment for "LBC X"
You’re all done! You’ll just have to wait for the package to arrive at your doorsteps. Shipping Cart will notify you of any status update via their website and email – which is perfect! My package actually came earlier than I expected. I ordered the products on Amazon on Aug 6, 2016 and I got them already on Aug 26, 2016. Overall, it took only 20 days! Considering that they were shipped from the States, that’s not bad at all.
The items I bought are in fact surprise gifts for my wife and these made her very happy. It also got me excited seeing her wear that corset! Having my orders delivered on time and in good condition is all that I wanted. I will be using Shipping Cart again when I shop at Amazon.com.
