    Try to compare prices. Have you explored LBC shipping cart?

    Hi guys!

    Im planning on pre ordering the iphone x from the US apple store. I have a relative there that would be buying it for me. The problem is, we are not sure what method would be best to ship it here in the philippines.
    1) im not sure if couriers such as FedEx would cover for the import tax(if its included aldy in the shipping fee or we still have to deal with customs - everyone knows they are a pain to deal with)
    2) Shipping cart obviously has tax covered so I guess i dont have to worry with tax but do they ship iphones as new as the iphone x?

    Anyway guys, im very open to all the possibilities so if fedex and sc are not the best, please reply with what you think is best with my situation. Thanks a lot!

    +1 on this.

    I am still wondering if lbcshippingcart could ship phones.

    I have read on their prohibited items listed; Telecommunications devices. as they are not certified by the NTC for use locally.

    could anyone clear this up. if they have tried shipling phones already.

    thanks!

    I have a package with ShippingCart and ang bagal na nila ngayon. Almost 3 days yung posting ng item sa cart then still preparing for shipment pa din yung status nung sakin. Before right after nila mareceive yung item, after 2 hours, processed na and under my cart na. Maybe because Christmas is coming and maraming namimili online.

    Yup, they sent an email saying there will be a delay due to influx of shipments. I am affected as well. My shipment is on the way, just received their notification this morning.

    Guys reliable pa po ba JAC ngayon? Do they insure items like SC does? Or additional payment pa po yun? (SC includes $500 insurance for free)

    My package was received by LBC shipping cart September 12, ready for shipment by September 15, which I paid immediately, and was shipped only by September 24. I used sea cargo, by the way.

    Hi! Legit na ba yung no customs tax for goods less than PHP10000? May gusto sana kong bilhin online kaso iniisip ko baka singilin ako ng customs. I'm sure the item is less than 10K.

    ^ That's a positive sign! Did you claim it in the post office? Gusto ko kasi bumili ng shoes sa isang UK site. They offer free shipping to the Philippines. I just worry about the customs tax. Kapag free shipping, sa post office ba talaga ang bagsak ng item?

    Yup, claimed them sa post office. Kahit DHL no tax basta below 10k as per my experience.

    Haven't used JAC for about a year but haven't heard any negative comments during that time. I've used more of Shipping Cart since they deliver to your address. With JAC, you need to pick it up from one of their offices. Not sure about the insurance issue though.
