Massdrop USD10 off!

Massdrop is a community-driven commerce platform that uses the community power of interest to bid for the cheapest price of a certain popular product. Covering a big product catalogue, covering items for Audiophiles, Members can influence the products that appear on Massdrop by creating and voting in polls. Massdrop makes the most requested products available in limited-time events called “drops.” Each drop runs an average of 7 to 10 days and features different price points that can unlock depending on how many members participate. The more people that participate in a drop the product, the lower the price it can get. Payment is captured when the drop ends. We then place the group’s order with the vendor, who prepares it for shipment to our warehouse—or, in some cases, ships it directly to the drop participants. The time the fulfillment process takes will vary depending on the product. That’s why each..

BUZZWORD OF THE DAY: GST

These are three letters that everyone keeps talking about of late. The announcement that the Goods and Services Tax will be raised from 7% to 9% (to be effected between 2021 and 2025) truly shook the ground, even if there were murmurings that this came at no surprise.  Some might complain that even though it seems to be a small increase in the eyes of percentages, some retailers and merchants might use this as an excuse to increase prices way beyond the 2% increase.  On the other hand, some might even wonder if this will even affect them in the long run. So we thought to put together a few things you need to know about how GST affects your online shopping.    WHEN DO YOU HAVE TO PAY GST? For most people who order smaller ticket items you might get away with never having to pay GST for the items you ship into..

IN LIQUID FORM

Remember once upon a time we all were allowed to bring liquids on board planes. It wasn’t complicated, if you had water and brought it on board you wouldn’t be treated like H2O was a hazardous substance.  Those were simpler times, made a little more complicated in modern day thanks to newer airline regulations put in place to ensure we fly safer. We won’t mention who, but someone in the team got some special artisanal sauces tossed away in front of them at the security checkpoint.  There were tears involved in that story.  You’re probably wondering why this would affect your shipping through BuyandShip, why would we bring it up? Simple, it’s more for the simple reason that airlines and courier partners limit the shipping of liquids, not just with BuyandShip, but also with other small parcel forwarding services too.  We know it’s a bummer, especially when there are skincare items or shampoos that seemingly may not..

RIGHT IN THE CHILDHOOD

Everyone loves a good dose of nostalgia.  Which is why some of the team at BuyandShip (the girls, mostly) were squealing in excitement when we saw the announcement that Polly Pocket was making a comeback with newly released toys. Some of us who were obsessed with the ultra cute and colourful compacts we carry around like clutches now may have little girls who we want to share the joy to.  Then when we looked around, we realized there were plenty of toys that were popular in the 80s and 90s that were getting the comeback treatment. So here are a few that we handpicked.    TAMAGOTCHI The one thing we can remember about this little egg-shaped object that housed an electronic pet, was that when it was first released, it was so highly coveted that it was sold out EVERYWHERE. Those of us who didn’t manage to get one could only hang around enviously with..

GOOGLE TRANSLATE HACKS

It’s always pretty confusing when it comes to language in Singapore. Our national language is Bahasa Melayu, but English is our first language. To top it off, all of us are required to know our mother tongue. For the majority of us, it was Chinese. Though we have to admit that once ‘O’ or ‘A’ levels are done with most of what we have learnt would be given back to the lao shi, leaving us only with enough vocabulary to order food at hawker centres. That’s why when it comes to ordering from Chinese language online merchants, most of us are hopeless at it. And even we at BuyandShip have to admit that using the Google Translate function to search for a specific item takes a certain art. And it’s even worse now because we only have a few more days until the end of the $3 per pound CNY..

GUESS WHO IS JOINING THE FAMILY?

Taobao is an endless rabbit hole that we are sure many would have fallen into. Seriously, name anything you may ever possibly want or need and search for it on Taobao. The likelihood is that you’d be able to find it at a price at least four times cheaper than in the stores. Be it affordable fashion, accessories, electronic goods, and home furnishings. So the BuyandShip family is more than proud to announce a new addition to our overseas warehouse addresses! Starting NOW, you have the ability to ship all your shopping from China merchants to our Dongguan address. Consider your world expanding a hundredfold when it comes to access to all kinds of products. And you don’t have to be limited to Taobao (and your limited knowledge in the Chinese language). Here are a few online merchants in China whose websites are in English. Most importantly though, they ship..

GOOD THINGS COME IN 3

You don’t really need more reminders that Chinese New Year is coming. It doesn’t really sneak up on you with all the lucky red decorations to beckon wealth in, or even the sudden change in music playing in departmental stores and malls.  But we thought we needed to give a little nudge to remind everyone of BuyandShip’s Chinese New Year promotion of only $3 per pound for shipping! That’s 40% worth of savings! Here are three more reasons why you should take advantage of this promo and quickly send your shipping back home to Singapore! We call it our LUCKY 3.    Multi-country Consolidation For most other services, you’d have to pay for individual shipping when you shop from different countries. If you buy from US, you are made to pay from US to Singapore. If you buy from Japan at the same time, you’ll be made to pay another sum..
