I checked my package and seems same with you sir @Oznola...

   Now expected March 24 - March 31
   We’re very sorry your delivery is late. Most late packages arrive in a day. If you have not received your package by       
   March 31, you can come back here the next day for a refund or replacement.

Should I call APEX?  Are there anyone answering during this Luzon's ECQ?  tia!

wag na. alam naman natin ang sitwasyon so no point pa calling them. hopefully ma-deliver pa din pero pag wala pa din on the committed date, better request the refund.

If it does get delivered naman at a later date then ok.

Checked my parcel at Amazon and asking me now to wait for the delayed delivery or cancel & request for refund.

I emailed ECMS at "[email protected]" and got a response acknowledging my package is with them =).  Just glad to know it didn't get lost.  I replied back and asked them to SMS me when it is for scheduled delivery hehe

hoping ECQ gets lifted na very soon  >:D

hi sir, ang intidi ko nung una yes sila ang nakuha na local courier partner.  makikita mo naman kasi when you track your Amazon package nakalagay naman.  dati its always UPS.  then came APEX -- so dito ko lang din naman nalaman yung contact info ng APEX.

but then, even if APEX is the local courier, I think they sub-contract it to others.  my 1st time with APEX, parang APEX din nag deliver to our door.  but then my 2nd & 3rd with APEX, it was NinjaVan na yata.  sorry, I forgot.  nasa previous posts ko yata  >:D

good news!  I've got a SMS from NINJAVan this 10AM that my delivery is on its way.  Yes, it's NinjaVan delivery service for APEX courier, once again.

glad that I didn't cancel and so here it comes now...  ^-^

has anyone tried ordering a laptop for direct delivery here in the Philippines? how much or what percentage of the amount was charged for tax?

reason is that the prices of laptops here are too expensive, and there are usually good deals in Amazon ... I've already purchased a couple of laptops thru Amazon before, but were delivered within US ... the upcoming school year that they are planning to start in August would likely be online ... if you have more than 1 children going to school, you would likely need to purchase one for each as the school schedules are likely at the same time

if it is not that much, I think mas makakamura pa rin kung sale ... I purchased a couple of HP laptops in the past three years that were on sale at less than half the original price, pero I was in the US on those times, hence free delivery and wala naman tax pag pinasok dito ... if the tax is 10-12%, malaki pa rin ang tipid, wag lag yung mga standard pricing

http://spotastore.com/buy-amazon-philippines/

from Quora:
Before you shop make sure you filter properly the items that Amazon USA can ship to the Philippines. These is done by the International Shipping filter on the search and the Amazon Global store filter. The guide above has some screenshots which you can follow.

Second, consider also the shipping fee for the items you want to order and the import fee deposit. Minimum shipping fee can cost from P425.00 to as high as P1810.00. These will depend on the shipping method, type of item you buy and the number of items in the package and its weight.

If I may add, Amazon international shipping service is a door-to-door service. They will take care of everything as soon as you placed your order and until your package reaches your door.

In my experience, Amazon makes good of its published transit rate. One time, I ordered a book and had it shipped through priority courier shipping (3–5 days). The order reached me in 4 days. And what’s better, Amazon refunded me the import fee deposit that they charged when I placed my order because when my order was cleared with the customs, no duties was actually charged.

Have a great shopping experience at Amazon!

OT: Ordered the same item from the US 2 separate times. One last March and the other this 1st week of June. I'm wondering bakit siningil pa ko ng P600 ng FedEx nung March, tapos nitong June, walang charge from UPS and it was for the same item & same vendor. ??? Anybody know the rules/law about this?

That's why I stay away from FedEx as much as possible. Meron silang mga extra charges na wala naman sa ibang provider katulad ng UPS at APEX.

Ito yung email ng FedEx sa akin dati:
Quote

Shipment/s are subject on below charges;

* Customs duty and tax (PHP) (if value exceed 10,000.00 PHP)

* Storage fee -  PHP 245.00/day from date of arrival with 48 hours free of charge (VATable)

* Warehouse handling fee - PHP 420.00 onetime charge (VATable)

* Customs entry form fee - PHP   95.00 onetime charge (VATable)

Ang masaklap pa doon sa mga package ko dati, talagang pinagtripan pa ng customs na kailangan pa ng NTC permit, OMB permit o kung anu-ano pa nung yung FedEx ang nag handle.

Pag sa UPS/Shipping Cart/APEX, wala naman ganun.
