Why?
2 x youshop shipping < youshop shipping + gst + customs levy.

Can specify an address and recipient for each parcel separately and pay for them some time apart.

Surely he could have shipped his wife's phone with her name as the receiver? Duty is per-person right?


Spoke to soon. I think you're right. Though if he'd done that surely Amazon wouldn't have combined them, even though the same "address"?


The delivery address was youshop due to having to route it through there, therefore, I had to use the details for the freight forwarding company. Perhaps I could have used a different receiver name as well as my own name with youshop, but, I was under time pressure to order before they ran out. Plan was to, from youshop, ship one to me, and one to my wife (different addresses).

Learning's for the future - If you mark one of them as a gift, that should prevent consolidation of multiple orders.


Edit - If only youshop offered an unconsolidation service...



Bugger.

I'm not really sure how long this runs for but to anyone after a reliable US proxy/VPN to the US check this LEB deal. US$10/year for:

256MB RAM
2 CPU cores
3GB SSD
30 Mbps uplink

This is basically perfect for a Nutflix/HUHU/Amazin/iTwoones tunnel and the network they are hosted on has direct peering to most of those services.

I have had shipito seperate out items into other parcels when I wanted some things in a hurry compared to others before. Perhaps get youshop to send to them or one of the other more helpful reshippers?

This amount avoids US/NZ Taxes, shipping is a bit steep though
