Somehow stuff from Shopee & Lazada do not have any extras added on by customs. Everything I order from the US directly gets charged extra. Anything from Amazon gets turned away at customs (only tried twice will not try again - Amazon refused to refund my payment).

Yeah that's the part I was wondering, meaning however you pay - COD, CC, 711 - the amount when you purchase is the total amount you pay.

Shadow so far I don't get charged any extra's from Shopee and I find that amazing but if I'm not mistaken the US allows China a lower priced shipping something like $1 and it's been that way for decades and the main reason many online US companies complain, due to the unfair advantage that they have in lower rates.

I can't find the exact link, it's been a long time but here's something similar that address's shipping from China https://www.theatlantic.com/technolo...-rates/573337/

I have ordered a lot of stuff direct from Amazon. I never have had a problem with it getting through Customs, even if over 10,000p the prepaid duties on the order takes care of it every time. I have put in some larger orders, (30,000 p a time) with no issues.

Who was the shipper, FedEx? DHL? EMS?

Note on different companies and shipping timelines:

I received a couple orders today, my briefs (another thread) and my son had an order for some Nike shirts, both ordered through Shopee and it's incredible fast delivery, same with my previous orders of web cam and headset in less than a week.

I'm waiting on an Oshopping set of silicon food storage containers and I made that order on the 10th of July and still nothing yet, I contacted Oshopping and they said it can take from 10 - 17 business days to get to us. We had ordered the Titanium pan set last year and it took nearly a month also to get to us.

My wife made an order for a comforter, bed sheet and pillow case combo and it took nearly a month and ordered off of Lazada.

I've been waiting several weeks for an item from Lazada, took a week from China to Manila then got stuck, not in customs as had an email say it had cleared customs, this item is being delivered by LBC, they have tried to deliver it three times each time saying the house is closed up and nobody there, after the first failed attempt I filled in an online form giving alternative delivery details but this seems to have been ignored. I give up, it's COD so do I care. Saw a better one cheaper in S&R.

I use my sons Smart phone as a contact because our main phone line is a Land Line and my phone is a Senior flip style phone but Shopee always gives us a heads up on the deliveries, but I'm not so sure about Lazada or the other shipping companies but they do ask for our phone numbers.

The company that's sending us our Silicon food containers is Logistikus and from the reviews it appears they are very slow.

I have used Lazada a number of times and been pretty happy with the service. I usually get an email in the morning that they are going to deliver (at an unspecified time), and then a call when they are at my gate.

Great thread, I didn't know about Shopee.
