    Planning to buy a PS5 in the US and have it shipped to Manila, which would you suggest to have it shipped to Manila? Thanks.

    mm..they ship all types of electronics from what I know. Most unusual shipment that I made with them was a 150” cinema-quality projector screen that I ordered from Amazon (it was on sale). Amazon could not ship direct to PH.

    Tried my luck with shippingcart, paid last Friday night for my cart. ETA is on December 4. There’s a note that it will take them 3 days to prepare the shipment. Let’s see how it goes.

    Got all my recent online orders delivered to Shipping Cart's U.S. warehouse.

    Two deliveries arrived on Friday, were in my cart on Saturday. The Book Depository items were split into two separate shipments, which was not indicated in the tracking info on Amazon's website.

    Also placed an order at Right Stuf Anime. They upped the minimum order for free U.S. shipping from $50 pre-pandemic to $75 now. Shipment arrived last Wednesday, in my cart Thursday. Shipping confirmation from RSA was on November 13.

    All in all my SC shipment has 12 books (light novels and manga). ETA December 5.

    I'd also like to note that the SC mobile app is a little buggy. Initially used it to finalize my shipment, then after I chose credit card as the payment option and entered my CVC it auto-refreshed after I checked my SMS app for the OTP. After I got the notification that payment failed and my items were returned to my cart, I checked out again using the mobile website in Chrome and paid with PayPal.

    Shipping cart still has issues. I received only half of my last shipment. And their char service still does not have a live agent.

    Pardon me for not back-reading. But can anyone tell me if it’s fine using ShippingCart to ship a Mac Mini (will be purchased from Amazon) to Manila? (May excited kasi na bata and can’t wait for it to become available locally, even sa gray market.)

    I checked their prohibited items list again, and it seems like it's okay to have a Mac Mini shipped. But in case anyone has experienced shipping an item of the same nature to Manila successfully through ShippingCart, please do share. Thank you!

    Got my SC shipping confirmation on Tuesday. Online tracking tells me my shipment arrived at NAIA last night around 8pm.

    Finally received my missing item from ShippingCart after 3 months. I hope their service starts to get better as before.

    Amazon delivered my order earlier today, then ShippingCart processed it and it's now in my cart ready for payment in just a couple of hours. I think I'm just lucky or they improved their efficiency, I don't know.

    I think they improved their workflows to make them more efficient. Like you, one recent package got posted in my cart on the same day it arrived, another packet the day after. Before it used to take 3-4 days on the average before packages appear on my cart.

    And then, aside from more efficient workflows, it's also possible that their load is nowhere near their maximum handling capacity, given the recent defections to other freight forwarders.
