Amazon Shopping from the Philippines: Here’s the Easiest Way To Do It!

My Shopping Box makes it easy to ship from Amazon to Philippines.

 

It goes without saying that the internet has revolutionized the way we do shopping. Among the countless online retailers in the world, there is one name that unanimously dominates the pack – Amazon.

 

From starting as a simple online bookstore in 1994 in Bellevue, Washington, it’s’ now a full-blown retail empire valued at $740B that has set up shop in over 15 countries with almost 150 million customers served weekly. If Amazon were a country of active users, it would be twice the size of Canada. Now, Amazon’s warehouses occupy more space than 700 Madison Square Gardens.

 

Now, more than half of the world’s population enjoy the perks of shopping online for a vast selection of items without leaving the comforts of their home. All thanks to the fourth most valuable company in the world.

 

Unfortunately for us, Amazon shopping in the Philippines isn’t  much of a thing yet. While our e-commerce industry has indeed been booming, the variety of goods available in Amazon USA or Europe is immensely incomparable. At times, the same item would be less expensive if purchased abroad. One solution to this is to sign up directly for an international Amazon account and go through the usual entities to deliver the items to the Philippines.

 

As simple as this sounds, international shipping is still not a pleasant experience for us. Aside from the inconvenience of picking it up elsewhere and the unease of going through an unknown courier, international shipping fees can be quite unpredictable. Recently, Amazon has established its own logistics service called AmazonGlobal to handle its international shipments. However, the rates can still be exorbitant despite the cheaper cost of buying the item abroad.

 

How Filipinos Can Shop Easily on Amazon

All hope is not lost. There are services available in the Philippines that can help solve your international shipping woes, such as, My Shopping Box. Through My Shopping Box, you can purchase items from Amazon US or Europe and ship it directly to your doorstep through our delivery service. Now, you can enjoy the full scope of Amazon’s assortment of items and the practicality of purchasing the item abroad for less the price. My Shopping Box has built warehouse facilities in Burbank, California and in Milan, Italy that both function as your free international shipping address.

 

Through our well-established logistics channels, we are able to bring your item from international borders straight to your Philippine address with just a few clicks. What’s more, our published rates for either air shipping or sea shipping are all-in. Our rates are at $5.99 / lb for air freight and $2.99 / lb for sea freight. Air freight takes 10-12 business days and sea freight takes 45-60 days. Now, you don’t have to worry about hidden costs and being in the dark of how much your shipping fee you’ll have to pay.

 

To help you have a better idea of your item’s shipping cost, you can use our site’s built-in shipping calculator. Note that in shipping terms, the weight of the item can mean two things – actual weight and volumetric weight. Actual weight is the package’s actual weight. Volumetric weight is the volume of space the package occupies in- freight that’s computed by length, width, and height of the package.
