I just got my LOTR-FOTR gift set from the Makati PO a while ago, after going through their records.  Unfortunately, the package was taxed since there's no indication that the package came from Royal Logistics, but there is a Deutche Post AG tag.  :(

Now I'm worried about my other incoming orders... :-\

^ In the Parcel division.  I hadn't received any notice yet so I just looked at their records and found my package info dated Oct. 27.  Am not sure if I would've not taxed if I had waited for the notice.

After my disappointment yesterday about my Amazon package, I was surprised when my other 2 orders (Hellboy Gift set and another LOTR-FOTR Gift set) were delivered just minutes ago straight here at the office. This time there is a Royal Logistics sticker in both boxes. I'm now a happy man!  :D

Hi, I finally received my orders from Amazon last Tuesday (Nov-16) which shipped last Oct 20 via International Shipping (averages 10-16 days) to San Antonio Village Makati.

The package has a stamp of Royale Logistics.

The box was quite big due to the "Winnie the Pooh Gift Set (123's/ABC's)". It also contained "Winnie the Pooh - A Very Merry Pooh Year" and "Disney's Sing Along Songs - Very Merry Christmas Songs"

No Tax!!! Yehey  ;D

As far I know, this is how they do the international shipping now.  Although I myself still had one shipment coursed through the post office, my last two went through Royal Logistics.  Hopefully, and with such positive feedback from customers, they will continue this procedure.  :)

I just made my first Amazon order..  ;D was finally convinced by the posts about the Royal Logistics delivery...

My order from Koreandvds shipped 3 weeks ago wala pa rin  :( I went to the post office in Alabang this afternoon to check & what they told me was super stupid talaga - the mail & packages they get are just forwarded to them by the Las Pinas office (understandable)  :-\ So I asked when they were expecting the next batch of mail from the Las Pinas office - ito yung stupid part - hindi nila alam! The old guys manning the desk checked their logbook & even pointed to an entry dated Oct 28 - yun daw yung last time na nagpadala yung Las Pinas sa kanila so try ko raw sa November 28 or pumunta na lang daw ako sa Las Pinas office to check... haaay naku... sir keating! hindi ba counted ito sa mga chargeable offenses against government officials - gross negligence?  >:( ???

By the way... any of you from Alabang expecting packages from Amazon? May 3 boxes ng Amazon doon sa Alabang office...  ;)

bro. medyo OT yung Koreandvds post but i symphatize. for the record, i have lost so many LE's in Las Pinas PO so you guys may want to rethink your shipping destination. and oftentimes being questioned (until now) kung drugs ang nasa loob ng dvds ko.. nice work but.. nyerk..

anyhow, some members have shipped their star wars dvd sets to muntinlupa PO. you may check star wars thread, bro. and yes, it was delivered straight to their houses..

Sorry out of topic mods.....i'll try to consult your problem jeckjeck and see what I can do....as what hemisphere said notorious na pala talaga Las Pinas P.O. Next time maybe you should change your shipping option.

I sympathize with you because its our hard earned money what we spent on dvds....

jeck jeck,  nice seeing you also..

from experience, you need to be present during delivery. but when a credible person/representative is available (i.e. relatives), baka ibigay na rin.  ayaw ibigay sa helper namin dati.

enjoy your amazon experience..

Question again:
If I set up delivery through JAC for my Amazon orders, how can I have Amazon deliver to JAC in the U.S. when my delivery address needs to be the same billing address of the credit card I am using?  ???

Thanks keating! So even if they say na the shipping address has to be the billing address of the credit card, pwede sa ibang address. The credit card transaction will still go through? Masmabilis through JAC versus Royal Logistics? Cheaper?  ???
