i will give you the best free hint, never ever use fed-ex to ship to philippines, their customs people will flag it and charge you 10 dollars a day storage just because they know they can do it, they will make up total crap reason why they did it. they know you must then create a fed-ex account and pay the fee, and 100 dollars is if your lucky and catch it fast.

That's the Philippines for you. Importing is nearly impossible. Probably because they have a monopoly on the goods. Small businesses can't afford to pay off customs. Not much has changed either. The Philippines is okay if you want to export something like garments though.
Mr. Shadowman (3 months ago)
enforceOM so you know what customs is? You are assuming that someone working for the state somehow got them to finance a huge operation to support/ keep in check private companies. That's the entry point in the country, the very company that delivers your parcel. They do the actual physical work.

+Doris C - "... helping for moves." +MrIHADANACCOUNT is correct. I understand you may not be aware, but it is illegal to use USPS Priority boxes for that. Pickup any USPS Box and read the notice. It may be worded slightly different from one box to another but basically it says: "This box remains the property of USPS and is provided for use in shipping by USPS Priority. Any other use is prohibited and is punishable by fine or imprisonment". (Well, something like that). And: "Any other use is prohibited", includes using them for moving, wrapping them in paper and using them to ship by FedEx or another carrier, or anything else you can think of that is not shipping by USPS Priority. You might not have known it, or you might think it's not likely they'd find out, but if you happen to be the one they catch, it won't end well.

+Doris C - I'm sorry to hear of your bad experience shipping gifts to your nephew. I don't know what shipping service you used, but shipping by USPS Priority Mail includes tracking and $50 or $100 of insurance per box. This is included on all packages for no extra charge. I don't know if it's too late to file a claim, but you should check out if you can still file a claim. In any case, keep it in mind next time you ship, if the package doesn't arrive, file a claim right away. UPS also includes tracking and $100 of insurance per box. I'm not sure about FedEx.

jpdemer5 (18 days ago)
I used to use the free USPS boxes, folded inside-out, when shipping UPS or FedEx, or even shipping non-priority USPS. Unfortunately they wised up, and the insisdes are now printed w/ USPS identifiers. Foiled again!

You loose your tracking number, your loose your $5000 insured Chronograph wrist watch being sent to be cleaned and service. It never will bee seen again. or be reimbursed. You just lost $5000. PERIOD!!! Your name and address or the name and address of the intended receiver means nothing and is useless!!! If you paid by credit card duh you will get the charge on your billing but no reference number or tracking number from them. They can request a copy of your receipt from USPS that that is a long shot and can take up to two months if USPS responds at all. I think this method sucks and know that so many have lost very valuable items such as myself because of this glitch. I know understand that USPS is having problems with it's carriers scanning your package in the first, going out and delivery it without logging it into the system. I advise everyone to sign up for an account at USPS and create your own label on the computer. IF you send Priority and insure the package, the computer system will send you a verification email with all the information on it. If it does not arrive in regular email be sure to check your junk mail and do not delete any emails until you know that your package was safely received.

I send and receive Priority Mail by USPS. Maybe one or two out of every 100 shipments are delivered on the third day. All the rest are delivered in under 48 hours - I mail today, delivered day after tomorrow. Four to five days? You must be kidding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One thing that is the truth...People WAIT TIL THE VERY LAST MINUTE TO SHIP.....then they complain and complain and complain about the cost. It is no one's fault but their own when they have to pay a high price IN A LOT OF SITUATIONS. I absolutly love all 3...Fed Ex, UPS and the USPS!!! and I love buying new stamps!!!

No. Small FR box is not the same price as 8x8x8 USPS PM mailing box. No, Large FR box is not the same as Regional Rate C box (it is not the same price and it is not flat rate). This is just full of lies. USPS does Small, medium, and large flat rate boxes, flat rate envelopes, and by weight at retail locations. Some retail locations also have regional rate box A, B, and C available for use, as well as padded flat rate envelopes. You can often buy shipping labels online for a discount (sometimes called commercial base discount) for any of these packages, which all have their own rates. There are fewer website that offer Commercial Plus discount, often with a monthly subscription fee, that have even better discounts, as well as a new Priority Mail Cubic rate, which is a better discounted rate similar to regional rate boxes, and goes by how many cubic feet the box takes up, in tiers of 0.1 cubic ft up to 0.5 cubic feet.

I have ordered many items online & have had nothing but trouble with USPS , they damage nearly / crush nearly everything that they shipped to my house / held at a Post Office & to be honest they seem to treat my orders like most other Government office / officials treat U.S. citizens , I guess that's what happens when you rely on the U.S. Government to ship something to your home. I have never had trouble with FedEx & I pay extra to have my orders shipped through FedEx & will continue to do so , FedEx shipped my $1,500.00 MrSpeakers Ether C headphones to my home & they were stolen by a 17 year old kid & he traded them for some Beats because the Ethers didn't have very much bass. After cantacting FedEx about the issue I was refunded the value of the headphones , purchased a replacement & had them held at a FedEx store. Picked them up a few days later & no issues with the store or headphones. I will NEVER have an item shipped using USPS again !!!

Send a hat in a Priority box ??? I thought you were trying to save people money. Send your hat and anything else under a pound First Class. It will save you way more money and get there in the same time frame.

Hey,  just wondering about the small cube priority mail box.  You said it was flat rate?  I can't find that size in flat rate on the usps website.  Maybe they discontinued them?  Also, that larger one you showed at the end,  I can't find either.  Do you have a link to order them?

I RECEIVE packages far more times than shipping them, so I can only address the 'normal' delivery side of these businesses' practices. In spite of what is said in this video, it has been my personal experience (ROUTINELY) that most of the time the USPS delivers packages SOONER than expected, and not later. If the package arrives at their nearby distribution point earlier than their original estimate, they get it transferred overnight to the local post office for delivery to me the very next day. I have noticed with both UPS and FedEx, they will give you an expected delivery date upon shipping, and then promptly get it delivered to their local distribution center and SIT ON IT (sometimes for as long as a week) because it wasn't scheduled for delivery any sooner. I've also noticed the USPS keeps their tracking service more accurate and up to date than the other two. I'll take the USPS over UPS or FedEx any day, and no, I'm not an employee of the postal service. I'm just someone who pays attention to how these organizations do (or don't do) their work.

Don’t listen to this person, he does not know what he’s talking about. A small box is not the same as a small flat rate box. A large flat rate box is not the same as a regional rate box. Regional rate is not flat rate. I find it amazing that people can be so uninformed and act like they have all the answers.

Do not use Fed Ex drop boxes if they lose or steal your package , they will deny you used the drop box ! I sent a pistol back to Ruger because something inside the new pistol I bought from Ruger broke after being fired only 2 times ! I expected better from Ruger and Fed Ex but Company’s like Ruger got to big to be honest and will sell junk pistols just to get richer don’t buy Ruger stocks ! I intend to expose them and Fed Ex !
