    For those needing a 2-bay NAS, Prime members can get the DS220j for Php7,850 ($156.97 @ 1:50 conversion) directly shipped to your doorstep.

    Can accept drives upto 16TB x 2. Cheapest locally I found is 11k.

    Hi all! Quick question. Let's say I buy an Apple product through Amazon, an Apple Pencil 2. With APPs requiring receipts for warranty purposes these days, will they honor items that are bought from Amazon?

    My last couple of Amazon orders got shipped using UPS and arrived relatively quickly. The shipping cost has gone down to the about same level as before the pandemic too. That's a good sign.

    Looks like it's not just Apple and Logitech. I experimented with checking out a Dell laptop, a Mac program on DVD, a router, a Jabra headset. All no go.

    An aftermarket cable for a Meze headphone was going to be allowed, if I pushed through with the purchase....

    Clicking on the Learn More link brings up this explanation (bold and italics mine for the possible reason?):


    Why Can't I Ship to an Address?
    There are a few reasons why you might not be able to ship to an address.

    You may not be able to ship to an address for the following reasons:

    • The item exceeds dimensional shipping limits. The package must have a maximum length or width of 108 inches and maximum weight of 70 lbs.
    • The item is ineligible for shipping because it's large or oddly shaped.
    • The item is a restricted product. Products sold on Amazon.com must comply with all laws and regulations and with Amazon's policies.
    • Certain hazmat items (including, but not limited to, lithium batteries) are restricted from shipping to your area.
    • Some carriers can't deliver to certain address types.
    • We're restricted from shipping to your location due to government import/export requirements, manufacturer restrictions, or warranty issues.
    • You're shipping to a US freight forwarder but your order contains items that are restricted from exportation.
    • You've chosen an offer from a seller who doesn't offer international shipping.
    • You've chosen an offer from a seller who doesn't ship to your address due to the nature of the product (e.g., perishable, hazmat, etc.).


    For more information, see Shipping Restrictions.

    I already emailed shippingcart about this one even some amazon items doesnt allow shipping to shippingcart, but got no reply from them. But its obvious that unlike before, many items are not being shipped to shippingcart, my guess is that they got sort of partially blacklisted after what happened last year with many people having problems with their items not showing up in cart for a very long time even though amazon delivered it already... many probably complained to amazon too not realizing it was actually shippingcart that had a backlog

    Yes, it looks like a recent change. The items I experimented with above were just in my cart (or in Save for Later), but at one point or another, I almost purchased them for delivery to Shipping Cart and there were no issues before.
