I have used youshop once, have my second package there now.

was wondering how long most people would say it would take from the delivery company saying it's delivered to youshop having entered into thier system ready for you to pay for shipping?

Just playing around on Amazon and my shipping addresses, my actual address here in NZ and my Youshop address. To get something sent here directly it will be $116.49NZ with Standard shipping, 10-16 days. To get it sent to Youshop it will be $78.51NZ with Standard shipping. What are the chances of Youshop/NZ Post charging me $37.98 (The difference in the shipping fees) to get it over here?

I think im better to get it sent to my US address then Youshop forward it to me?

If you can ship direct it's usually cheaper. I think Amazon and youshop charge similar fees, but if you have to pay twice it will cost you about double what amazon charge.

There's a youshop price estimator. Remember it works by weight and volumetric weight, so if amazon put your package in a large box it will cost more. It's never cost me less than the estimator says, it sometimes costs people twice what it estimates.

That is the chargeable rate for a parcel 30x30x10(cm), which is about what I'd expect a pack of 3 shirts to be.

The weight is volumetric and they charge in 500g increments.

sometimes 1 day, but mostly 2 days

then mostly its another 2-3-4 days before it actually ships on its way to NZ

Whoever uses Amazon, I've tried the free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime and it works great with YouShop.

With Prime, all Parcels have been getting to the YouShop warehouse in about 1-2 days then delivered to my place about a week later.

Was about to order a couple of xbox one games from amazon but have a question. If I order 2 different games from Amazon will they package it together, therefore I only pay youshop for one package? I have never ordered from Amazon or used youshop before. One of the games strangely enough can not be sent directly to me.............which begs another question. Is there a regional problem ordering it? It is the Forza game which I have seen on the shelves here in nz.

Are they two different sellers? That could be why one can be shipped here directly and the other cant.

Just got a motherboard + ram off newegg, total cost to ship was $62.55 (with discount code), at a volumetric weight of 5.56KG (41cm x 31cm x 22cm). At home I had calculated the volumetric weight to be ~ 2KG, but I guess newegg ship in massive boxes! Pity youshop didn't repack it.

Care to share your discount code?

Yeah I got reamed on a GoPro the other week. But it wasn't youshop's fault, it was the website I bought it off. They shipped it in a box that could have fitted 4 GoPro's! Cost me $45 when I calculated it to be between $25 and $30.

Leaplae how did you manage to order off new egg?

I had difficulty and gave up. It detects my credit card as originating from NZ and when trying to use my PayPal account, it also states sorry this is a nz PayPal account which can't be changed without creating another account.
