About vPost Singapore
Launched in 1999 by Singapore Post Limited (SingPost), Post, or Virtual Post, was riding on the growing momentum for online shipping. vPost has since grown to become one of the largest online shopping and shipping service providers in Southeast Asia. Enabling globe shopping without globe-hopping, vPost allows its members to shop at online stores located in the US, Europe, China and Japan regions before shipping the items to local addresses.
With vPost, online shopping options have only grown with thousands of merchants, better prices and convenient, consolidated shipping.
vPost Singapore today
As of 2013, vPost members can make use of their new free PopStation (Pick Own Parcel Station), to collect parcels around the clock. After selecting the option during shipment, members will get a notification with a collection code to pick up their parcels by the PopStation of their choice, making delivery a more flexible process. As PopStation expands its locker space across the island, users now have more and more options for personal convenience.
How to use vPost
Having a middleman in shipment forwarding can sound daunting to newbies, so this is a quick guide on how to get started.
The membership is free and upon signing up, vPost members will be given free personalized US, Europe, China and Japan addresses, opening the gateway for them to shop directly at overseas websites that do not accept international orders - while enjoying significant shipping savings.
Go to the merchants' page you wish to shop at and complete your shopping as per usual. For the address, key in your vPost address and number. This way, your package would be sent to the local vPost warehouse instead of direct shipping, avoiding extra sales tax imposed by the seller as you have now gone through local delivery instead. Likewise, for sellers that do not sell overseas, this is the best way to acquire the goods.
Next, once the item arrived, you will get a notification from vPost. Then, just log into your vPost account and choose from standard, economy or sea shipping, then check out and pay for your shipment. Combined with 21 days free storage, bundling discounts and no base charge from second items onwards, consolidate as many packages as possible in one shipment before check out. Don't forget to use a vPost voucher code when you check out if any. Depending on your choice of shipping system, the item could be sent to you as quick as four working days.
And that's it! Shop away for hassle-free and cheaper delivery fees!
vPost shipping is the way to go, here's why
How is vPost shipping different from the rest, and why is using vPost more cost efficient? Well, this is because vPost's uses Economy/Actual Weight charges, have bundling discounts and vPost promotions ofter, as well as a 21-day free storage. This makes them one of the most cost-efficient agent compared to their competitors.
In general shipping practice, the item is being shipped based either on the volumetric weight or actual weight, whichever is higher. In the case of the former, the volumetric weight of an item is accounted for in the formula: (length x weight x height) divided by 5000. This means the 'weight' is accounted for the bulkiness of the item. In terms of actual weight, it would be how heavy the particular package is when you weigh it on a weighing scale.
For example, if a customer were to buy a pair of heels, the item viewed in volumetric weight could be up to 3kg, due to the chunky and bulkiness of the item. However, it's actual weight could just be 1kg. Going by the standard shipping, the shipping costs that the shopper would have to bear would be 3kg (the higher weight quantity), meaning that you're now being charged a higher amount for shipping a larger item.
When you use vPost's Economy/Actual Weight shipping, you would only be paying for the item's actual weight itself! This means you're saving up on the 2kg worth of shipping costs for one item. This combined with their consolidated shipping service allows you to ship everything that you bought across different stores in one giant package, saving total costs and hassle of endless doorbell smashing by the courier servicemen.
