Salami:

 

can you have multiple items from different place sent to the same youshop address and then combine it for it to be shipped to NZ?

 

 

Yes of-course.

yes, youshop consolidates, they give you approximately three weeks to have all your items arrive at their Portland address so they can all ship together.

Yes but it only tends to pay off if you combine 3 or more items - also be careful that you don't combine some much stuff that you get into trouble with customs concerning duties and gst.

they will also repack the consolidated items so the overall parcel is smaller and cheaper to ship.....fee involved is generally worth it because American's love to send us their prepackaged fresh air bubbles...in overly large boxes.

One last question

 

Has anyone had a standard parcel sent to their youshop address?

 

What happens to it after it arrives?Does it just show you have a parcel?

Youshop works fine for consolidated and non-consolidated parcels. I've used it a couple dozen times. Prices are better than most, service is adequate, chance of problems is low. Just do it.

Sorry I meant a standard post 

 

 

 

If its posted to a youshop address with a standard post parcel without a tracking number does it just randomly appear as a parcel received on your youshop account?

Youshop has probably delivered tens of thousands or maybe even hundreds of thousands of parcels. I doubt your requirements will be any different. It's a consumer service made to be easy to use.

 

Address things to youshop in the way they tell you. Consolidate if you want. If it gets lost you can claim the parcel using the carrier tracking number. Have them sent it to NZ economy or standard.

 

It's dead simple. Just do it.

I've just consolidated four parcels in the USA Youshop and have noticed a change in the single consolidated parcel payment date. 

 

In the past I have usually consolidated parcels at the last moment to increase the time I have to make payment (i.e. when I have received the final warning to make payment for the oldest parcel) as I'm usually waiting for one or two parcels to arrive. 

 

This time the final payment notification I received (for the oldest parcel) informed me payment must be made by today (the 15th) so I consolidated them yesterday.  Expecting the payment date for the newly consolidated parcel to be at least a week or two from now but to my surprise the consolidated parcel still had the payment date as the 15th October even though the latest parcel (of the four) arrived late last week with a payment date for that parcel of two or three weeks from now.

 

I'm 99% sure this didn't happen in the past and a consolidated parcel always got an extended payment date - can someone please confirm this?

 

I've contacted NZ Post about this and they've opened a ticket but I'm not sure the person I spoke to fully understood what I was going on about - hopefully anyone reading this does!

 

 

 

Thanks

Jsut got an email saying Air NZ Airpoints are no longer an option.

 

 

Same. I've never collected Airpoints though, because they were not available on the 'budget' shipping, which they say takes 9-14 days, but has never taken more than 7 for me.

The value just keeps getting worse and worse. I haven't used them for a year or more.

 

Too expensive, too slow, too unreliable.

When you compare with Shipitto I find them cheaper for the same delivery speed. So far out of maybe 30 parcels I had two issues: one where a parcel wasn't put onto my account which took a week to resolve, and one delivery to NZ where they split it into two parcels and didn't bother to mention that or track both of the parcels.

 

If there's a better option I'm sure many people would be interested.
