    Well, according to them, my package was originally contained in a larger box with a volume weight of around 10 lbs. Jinio did transfer the contents to a smaller box with a volume weight of 6 lbs.

    Same here. One of my package was originally 8.80 lbs but were removed/repacked to a 4.83 lbs box as per Jinio.

    sa mga Jinio users, nagpaverify ba muna kayo ng account before kayo nagpaship? will try this na para at least may first hand experience ako :D

    While my packages are scheduled for shipping to Jinio, nagpa-verify ako. Sakto naman na bago dumating, na verify agad.

    I'm still thinking if I'll use Jinio or stay with myEcasa for my Indiegogo items. It's a portable DAC/Amp with the size of a flash drive (slightly bigger). I ordered 2 pieces so I think the packaging is not that big. I worry for the delay in communication with myEcasa but they are slightly cheaper compared to Jinio.

    Decisions, decisions.

    Drat, I'm trying Jinio this time. Already changed my Indiegogo address to that of Jinio. Let's see.

    ^Hindi daw nila sure kung tatanggapin ng airline. Use Shipping Cart instead :)

    ^ Yup tried to ship mists, lotions and bath gel bottles na via Shipping Cart. Non-aerosol lahat, accepted. Sea cargo nga lang, kaya antayan mode ;)

    Asked myEcasa rin and they accept up to 11 bottles raw, no matter the size (full size, half size or travel size). But haven't tried it pa.

    With Jinio, their prohibited items list is exhaustive. Andami!

    After several shipment fom Lbc since last year, today I recieved my latest delivery less 3 items. Items were listed in the packing list but were no where in sight.
    This has never happened before. Now Im concerned about shippng with them.
    I emailed them but as per experience this will take a long time to resolve.
    I hope its not a case of sticky fingers within their ranks.

    Opted to have my Mac SE/30 shipped by air cargo, so I can get it in time to leave eBay feedback.

    According to USPS, my package arrived at Jinio's last Thursday 11pm (PH time). Just now, they sent me an email notifying me that they received it. :) They took the items out of the box and they sent a picture, similar to LBC. Hassle-free payment. Buti they ship cosmetics. :D

    $5.99 all you pay, just like MSB. They don't show the volumetric or actual weight, just the final shipping weight.

    Any feedback on Forexworld via sea? I've used pobox thrice but their tracking is unreliable and they don't give updates. They always give me the incorrect tracking numbers. I know pobox uses Forexworld but is there a difference in terms of tracking and site updates? Thanks!

    Is the $5.99 for sea or air freight?

    wow - so many forwarders / shippers mentioned here, that i don't even know where to start. haha.

    i don't have much time to backread so please forgive me for asking directly: which service would you recommend if i'm shipping Skinomi Screen/Body protectors from Amazon? here are the specs as per the Amazon listing:

    13.3 x 2.1 x 2.1 inches ; 3.8 ounces --- i believe the packages come with a spray bottle of the application liquid.

    i'm planning to ship maybe 8 of those back here to manila. thoughts? :)

    Won a LaserWriter Pro 630 from the same eBay seller as my Mac SE/30. Will probably have it shipped by sea cargo since it cost 50% more to ship to California than the Mac SE/30 did, and a vintage laser printer is probably sturdier than a vintage compact Mac.

    Had anyone received their packages from myEcasa lately? It's taking longer than usual.
