Does anybody here use a mail forwarding service? I'm not referring to things such as Buyee, Zenmarket and J-Subculture but actual addresses that you use when submitting orders to be shipped to and consolidated with other items that you do yourself.
Last month I decided to give it a go myself and looked around. I settled on Stackry since it seemed like the best to use for buying stuff from the US. No membership or activation fees, tax-free state and they allow storage up to 45 days for free. I also signedup via a referral link, so it gave me $10 off my first shipment with them.
Their customer service is also pretty good. They're closed on the weekends but through the weekdays from 8AM to 5PM they can get back to you pretty quickly.
My first time dealing with them was pretty nice overall. Altogether I consolidated about 6 items, four of which were separate packages that were delivered to them. For $3 per item, they can take a photo of your items for you to check before you consolidate, which is what I did and everything I bought was exactly as I had expected them to look like.
For shipping, I chose the cheapest option that they offered. It was the slowest but it was guaranteed a tracking number as well and actually arrived here in a very reasonable time.
June 1 - Order created June 3 - Arrival at distribution center June 6 - Processed June 8 - Shipped June 13 - Arrived in New Zealand June 15 - Delivered
That's pretty much my story of using them. I've got a few other things that are being sent to them, so I'll be shipping out with them again soon within the next month or so.
If anyone needs a referral, here's my link. Like me, you'll get $10 off your first shipment with them, which should be a bit of help for you international members who have wanted to buy stuff from the US but couldn't due to no international shipping or from sellers who overpriced their shipping.
That's my story done. Anyone else here use a mail forwarding services? Share your experiences with us!
