I am using comgateway only, apparently more expensive than vpost , can't be sure. But I am happy to get 10% discount and free upgrade to express using dbs card. Limited period I think. Anyway it has always been very reliable for me, receive within 5 days tops

borderless is using borderlink i think. i found borderlink difficult to setup initially and comgateway was a breeze so i just stuck with it. So far quite happy with their customer service, very responsive. Using them for 2 years +.

of course I also checked a bit around, and read reviews from hardware zone and people generally recommend comgateway also so I didn't think too much about it. Didn't dare to try vpost after reading all the negative comments and experience with them.

i order from amazon a lot - sometimes they don't ship for free to singapore - and their paid shipping is not that expensive , comparable to comgateway. So if i have no other purchases elsewhere I will pay amazon the shipping. You can also get a live quote from comgateway with the item url on shipping estimate to decide.

anyway - learnt from experience don't order heavy liquid things like bath & body works products as their volumetric weight is quite hefty.

But borderless must use Amex...not sure if Citibank visa can be used to pay for shipping. I know dbs Amex cannot.
