Hi There!

I have sent a number of parcels with Youshop, and initially I was pretty happy, but recently there have been delays in processing. I am wondering about an alternative that is approximately the same price, perhaps with the added advantage of consolidation?

This has been discussed in the (massive) youshop thread. From memory is recommended but I've never tried them.

Didn't seem right to suggest alternatives in that thread.

In order to have consolidation you need to pay $50 a year, seems steep unless your volume was significant.

Doesnt take too much amazon boxes of air to really save that $50.

All up good service so far, other than them saying that lithiums could come DHL but then they couldnt, but got a full credit of the freight that I paid so it delayed things a bit and I had to pay a little more for fedex but not a big deal.

I use worldship -

They have no annual charge and charge something like $5 to consolidate a shipment.  There might be a one off membership charge but they often give it away for free.

If you're placing a big order it is worth paying the $99 for their "plus" membership.

Just be careful of their shipping restrictions as their primary market is the middle east so can be a bit conservative (e.g. won't ship knives)
