Question about Youshop. If I buy three (or more) different items from three (or more) different retailers off Amazon and get them all shipped to Youshop, will I be charged for every single item for shipping back to NZ or will they get boxed together?

Cheers

They do not consolidate parcels, you'll be charged separately for every parcel.

But you do get a discount if you pay for them all at once. $6 off each shipment after the first, from memory.

If they all arrive at the same  they won't be charged separately.  When I got my last two items the other week  I was given the option of bundling them together, paying full price form the first one and a reduced rate for the second one..

I just got an email from them with a 50% discount on my next parcel because they see I haven't used my address in awhile. That's nice, but I need to use it before the 30th :/ That's just a few days from now, I don't imagine most stuff would even arrive there by then without paying extra for over night or something. A strange offer really, just because of the time frame. And if it arrives late, I guess I'd have to pay full price. I sent them an email asking if it can be extended.

Yes, that's what I meant. They don't consolidate parcels and charge you for one big parcel, they charge you for the individual parcels, but in one payment. I got a second lot today and you can pay for them one by one if you want though.

nice work there ^^^
thats a great price
im looking to use the first user 50% off code next week.
my package just arrived to the youpost US warehouse and have got a shipment quote of $93-
i have 1 wetsuit $150- US and a few surfboard deck grips and 2 legropes totalling $250- US
then add shipping works out to be close to $380- NZ
im guessing customs/GST will want their take once this packages arrives, so am considering sending back the grips/leg ropes to the original seller and just get the wetsuit shipped over, as paying the extra $120- bucks doesnt make it such a bargain anymore.
has any 1 had experience with getting a package opened and some items sent back to seller and 1 item sent to NZ?
is it even possible?
or shall i take the gamble and hope it doesnt get pulled up at customs ?

thanks for any input.

I have only ever been able to return a complete package, not an individual item from a shipment.

That said, I had something in a order once that was classed as "dangerous" and they returned that for me and shipped the rest. Maybe send them a e-mail?

You can ship under 2 different names, but shipped to one address and paid for together. That might get you out of the GST bind.

Except doing that is tax evasion and publicly suggesting it is a pretty stupid thing to be doing.

That 50% off code was pretty retarded. Only valid for a week. Nothing even gets there that quick.

Kopkiwi: That 50% off code was pretty retarded. Only valid for a week. Nothing even gets there that quick.


ahh really ...
i was hoping to use that code next week.
well i contacted support and they have put in a request to have the parcel opened and 1 item sent to NZ and the rest returned to sender.
i told them that i didnt have the coin to pay for postage plus potential import costs.
