Buyandship Shopping Tips: Consolidating Your Shipments

1st October 2022

Paying for multiple international shipping fees for multiple shipments is a pain point for online shoppers. It can quickly stack up and end up very costly in the long run. Some overseas retailers offer affordable international shipping fees, and some may even offer free worldwide shipping with a minimum order. But what happens when you have neither of these options?

With Buyandship, this is something you don’t need to worry about. Send your overseas purchases to the nearest Buyandship overseas warehouse (we have 12 of them), and they will be automatically forwarded to our Hong Kong warehouse before you can arrange for shipping to Singapore.

You will receive an email from Buyandship upon your shipment’s arrive in our Hong Kong warehouse. From there, you can choose whether to send your parcels individually or consolidate them into one shipment!

Why Should I Consolidate?

One of the advantages of consolidating your parcels is being able to SAVE shipping fees. Let’s say you have THREE shipments stored in our Hong Kong warehouse, weighing 1.2 lbs, 1.3 lbs, and 2.5 lbs, respectively.

Generally, the delivery fee will be calculated based on your consolidated shipment, but do bear in mind that Buyandship will round to the next whole pound for the chargeable weight. If you were to arrange for individual shipping, you’d be paying S$49 (7 lbs)!

By consolidating, instead of paying for the weight for three individual shipments, get better savings when you combine them into one to pay only for 5 lbs — you’ll be saving S$14! What’s more is that packages can be stored in our Hong Kong warehouse for 21 days, giving you ample time to consolidate your purchases.

So, how do I consolidate my shipments on Buyandship?

You will receive an email from Buyandship once your shipment arrives at our central warehouse in Hong Kong. Follow the link in the email, or sign in to your Buyandship account to access the Member Center.

To check what’s available for shipping to Singapore, go to “Parcel Management” and select “Arrived at HK warehouse” — details of your packages and their weight will be displayed there. Select which parcels you’d like to checkout from our Hong Kong warehouse, select the delivery address, make payment and you’re good to go!
