Emirates Airlines decided to jump on board to complete with MyUS, Aramex Shop & Ship, and Postshipper. The service is called Emirates Delivers and the service was launched few days ago. They promising to have an edge over the competitors due to their infrastructure advantage. Emirates Delivers will have the lowest prices and the fastest shipping possible due to Emirates Airlines massive fleet and daily flights across the world. They are promising 3-5 business days for deliveries from the US or UK. Free storage will be for 30 days, which isn’t much for me since I am getting 60 days at Postshipper. I haven’t tried it out yet, but I will give it a try and see if it is better than Postshipper or not, because so far I am very happy with Postshipper. Once I try it, I will post a review of the service.
Back in early 2000, I used to shop with Aramex Shop & Ship, then I switched to MyUS in 2015. The impressive thing about My US is that their website is advanced and simple to use. The only problem is their pricing, which is always very expensive. I had the 30% discount with American Express back and it was still very expensive. The problem that there was a subscription fee, setup fee, and shipping was too expensive. Both setup and subscription for 2 years were waived for me as an American Express card holder. Their consolidation feature was really impressive, because I used to order lots of stuff and ship them all at once. The main problem was that the shipping options are expensive, but the worst part was the additional money I pay for customs when the packages arrives to my home. Each time it is a different amount, and they ask for cash, which I don’t usually have. I wanted an easier option where I can pay online, but that wasn’t the case back then.
When I discovered Posta Plus MyBox, I was really happy, because I no longer worry about shipping cost and
unexpected customs fee. MyBox is impressive, because it is really inexpensive. The only issue I face with them is that their website where I can’t consolidate easily, and If I do. They still ship them at different times from the US, so I don’t really get it. Their website is very basic and they need to invest more money into it to be very efficient. The beauty of MyBox is that I pay all my shipping fees and customs online before delivery, so it is extremely convenient. I wish they have an option to pay by PayPal, but so far it is only Knet and Credit Cards
The new player is Postshipper, which is really impressive overall. I really like their website, it is so detailed and advanced. They invested heavily into the website where they show every package with a picture and 45 days timer to know until when each package can be stored. Having such features, I expected to pay subscription fee, but it isn’t the case, it is completely free.
On Prime Day, I bought lots of stuff from Amazon, because of the amazing deals I found. Got the Fire TV for $15, and a bundle of Fire TV and Amazon Echo Dot for $12. The HDMI Switched for $4.5, and most of these stuff I won’t use anytime soon. I guess I bought them because I found them on a great deal. Above you can see the picture of each item and a timer of the remaining days for storage.
The picture above shows you the pricing for all the above items, and I was really happy to see PayPal as an option, because I use it all the time. The pricing is really inexpensive, and you don’t have to worry about anything after that payment. It will be delivered right to your home in a very nice package.
I highly recommend using Postshipper and give it a chance especially if you used MyUS, Aramex Shop & Ship, or MyBox Posta Plus before. You can find coupon discounts on shipments if you check their instagram posts.
Advanced Website + Inexpensive Pricing = Postshipper
I have been ordering electronics online since 2004 and my main mail forwarding service was Aramex. A decade later I switched to MyUS, and the service has always been amazing, but it is extremely expensive. My most recent switch is to Posta Plus – MyBox. The reason I prefer Posta Plus is very simple, it is much more convenient than the rest. I no longer have to wait at home just to pay the customs fees. Now I just login online at Posta Plus website, and then pay using Knet. The other reason is the price which is very fair, and from my own experience, the service is really good. I do see people complaining online, but so far i haven’t faced any issue so far. I also tried edfa3ly, but I never liked their service, and it is very slow to get the packages.
