Ship For Me Service:
As the Ship For Me service is meant to be used as an independent freight forwarding service for your parcels overseas, shoppers are not charged any service fees. In the same vein, shoppers will be responsible for all communication with the merchants. Shoppers should contact the merchants directly for any issues or discrepancies. In this light, after-sales service is not provided. If you would like to enjoy the after-sales service for your purchases, we highly recommend you use our Buy For Me service which includes inspection services and after-sales services.

Cost of international shipping from China to Singapore (China to SG)
The cost is calculated by either the product weight or its volumetric weight - whichever is higher. This is standard practice by international couriers. For example, if you purchased a bolster, it is light in weight but it takes up a fair bit of space. In this case, the shipping cost will use its volumetric weight instead.
This is how volumetric weight is calculated:
Volume Weight (kg) For Air Shipments
= Length (cm) * Width (cm) * Height (cm) / 5000
Volume Weight (kg) For Sea Shipments
= Length (cm) * Width (cm) * Height (cm) / 6000
*Volume Metric Weight is applicable for both China and USA ship for me.
