Posting items from the US

Post by Em Eye » Sun, 13 Nov 2005 9:32 pm

I want to order some books from Amazon. I heard that Singapore has an address in the US that we can use for cheaper postage. Can anyone give me more details please?

Thanks

really? anyone know?

how many books are you going to buy?
can post the title or ISBN here?

however, the courier fee will kill you for sure (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/br ... 92-0995932)

perhaps, you should try to lookup is there any bookshop selling these books first (it could be cheaper than buying from amazon)

I believe there is some kind of arrangement using vPost. You might want to check out their website.

here are they:

20% saving,
USD7 will become USD5.6,
to me, is still quite expensive :o

however, it will be great help if the merchants didn't charge ship to locally...enjoy!
