Canadian Shipping. Which one is best ATM?
Just went to make a few orders without using e-packet.

See we now have 2 options but I am not sure which option the FREE one might be?

I see that SingPost which was once free wants $3.30 for shipping.

I dont mind paying that if I know that it will be relatively fast, and without tracking issues.
Any other Canadians used that recently, know its really fast, or not?

And what is the free registered shipping. Is that Post NL?





Quite the drop in price for China epackets though 😁

Singapore Post will arrive about as fast as registered airmail, slow. I have had airmail arrive within 2 weeks, but I've had airmail get lost on several occasions. I'd just stick to e-packet for the peace of mind. I have never had an e-packet get lost in transit though, so I'm a little biased.

Sing Post.
It used to be free a few years ago but you got what you paid for, I felt.
But that was then so wondering about it today..


You paid the new shipping charge, am I correct?
Yours was so unusually quick compared to my experience with them, hence wondering if the cost moved them faster


E-packets, I havent ruled it out as my last 4-5 have all gone onto Canada over the last 48-72 hours ...

I can't tell you why that singpost package moved so quickly.
I remember using singpost years ago and it was usually 3 to 4 weeks, you may want to stick with e-packet just to be safe.

Could it be that that your order doesn't exceed 20 USD?

And what is the free registered shipping.


It's a generic option. The FT staff chose the shipping method from what is available to them.

No. The $3.30 charge is for a small package of $35. ( suprised me as well )

Think I am going to hold my breath and risk e-packet again only because all my other ones made it out.

You know, its not even that it took a few days but all the problems concerning everyone elses e-packets, had me checking mine several times a day.
I rarely checked more than 1-2x in the past for the whole delivery.

I will have 3 going out when I am done.

Sighs, glad that this should complete the bulk of my orders for some time again.
Hopefully 😁

In any event, the green highlighted one wasnt PostNL as I just expanded the shipping choices now.

But yes those are the prices on a $35 order.
So no idea what the green one might be.


Just decideing between e-packet or Post NL as I did have one come through there very quickly recently.
It was one of the early packages being sent back, then re-routed through NL.
Whether or not it has since slowed down, who knows.

Don't they have a courier that exclusively delivers to the wealthy areas of Toh?

Usually delivered via a rolls with security guard?

Check with your neighbors.

Maybe you had items that were not marked "FREE SHIPPING" in your order?
