What shipping method should I choose?!

Due to safety reasons, certain items have to be shipped in a specific way. Please make sure to select a suitable shipping method for you items.

For items containing liquid, it has to be shipped via sea. We currently have 2 choices for sea shipping: normal and economy. You can see the breakdown of the shipping costs here:

Example of items that contain liquid includes: perfumes, soaps, shampoos, facial masks, packet drinks, batteries, cosmetic products, and other skincare products.

For electronics, only sea shipping is available as it may pose a safety hazard in the aircraft. This includes: televisions, tablets, mobile phones, radios, laptops, computers, computer parts etc.

Do note that while sea shipping is generally costs less, the items are subjected to 7% GST. Please consider that when making your decision. For air shipping, parcels under $400 are not subjected to 7% GST, so you may actually save some money with air shipping instead.

We recommend air shipping for smaller parcels for clothing, jewelry, non-fragile household items, and other dry goods. Larger items such as furniture will be more suited to sea shipping.
