Too often we find items online and become “add-to-cart” clicker happy – only to realize during check out that the shop does not ship to Singapore (“arrrghh!”). In that moment of disappointment, you may have wished for a friend who resided in said country. Someone you could forward those parcels to, and (of course), would love you enough to post a truckload of purchases over to Singapore.
Other times, the thought "all I need is a residential address" comes to mind when you are just one page away from clicking the “buy” button, thinking how life could be so easy.
But life can really be that convenient! And for online shoppers keen to purchase hard to get items from Australia, you can OWN an Australian address along with it. All it takes is signing up with vPost, the only “friend” you’ll need to forward those parcels from Australia to Singapore. But isn’t that expensive? No, it’s not! At the newly reduced base charge of just 7.50 SGD by vPost, shipping from Australia to Singapore has NEVER been cheaper. In fact, we have also reduced the old nett weight charges from 1.20 SGD per 100grams to just 99 cents per 100 grams now.
Ninety-nine cents! That’s less than a dollar for every 100 grams of shipping, making it the lowest forwarding rates from Australia to Singapore.
With the price adjustment, vPost officially takes the lead in providing the cheapest shipping prices from Australia to Singapore, while equipping vPost friends with their OWN Australian addresses to forward all their Australian shopping to. And yes, you can purchase as many parcels, from as many shops as you like. Your buddy at vPost Australia will pack up those precious packages into ONE convenient single parcel so they’ll arrive neatly to you in Singapore– further reducing the chances of individual parcel loss while also reducing your overall cost.
And of course, the more you ship, the CHEAPER shipping gets per nett weight. So even if you decide you’ll only need just ONE cute tee, the cost of forwarding it from your Australian vPost address to Singapore could be as low as 12.45 SGD for *500g parcel. Now that’s EVEN CHEAPER than direct Australian postage rates to Singapore, and we haven’t counted in the forwarding and re-packaging service which vPost throws in for free.
*Minimum chargeable weight for Air Freight is 500g per box and an incremental weight break of 0.1kg thereafter. Invoice will be based on the chargeable weight.
Consolidation of different packages from various brands shipped to your unique vPost Address. vPost charges by volumetric weight OR actual weight, whichever is higher.
