Shop and Ship is a mail forwarding service that redirects parcels from the US, UK and China to your home address.


Q. How do join SnS and what are the charges applicable?

You can join at their site - Shop and Ship

Registration charges are $45, but you can register for $5 if by using a promotional code. Try this USD5983402. If it does not work simply send a message to shop and ship's twitter a/c and they will give you one.

Q. How do I make a purchase?

First of all read their online FAQ and List of unacceptable items to see if the items you want to purchase are allowed or not.

You can make a purchase from any US/UK/China website (those like Amazon recommend, and sometimes online sellers may not ship to a mail forwarding service). Just enter the address as described in the sns site when you check out. Note that there may be other procedures to follow when making and order from China, it is recommended to talk with the sns cc before you make one.

Q. What are the shipping charges applicable and how can I pay it?

Shipping is currently charged at the following rates. Be sure to confirm this with the website as it may change in the future.

First 500 gms - $10

Incremental 500 gms - $8 each

Customs, service tax etc. are extra.

Q. I made an order using the SnS addres and paid, what do I do now?

After ordering and item through the vendor's site, email the invoice and tracking no. to india@shopandship.com. Shop and Ship will handle the rest and inform you via email when they receive the parcel. From here on it is automatically redirected and delivered to your house, and SnS will contact for any clarifications about customs. You can also track the parcel through their site.

Q. What are the chances of being charged by customs and is there any way to avoid it?

All imports have a chance of being charged by the customs and sns will call and confirm the same with you before they pay and clear it. They always tries to pass parcels through customs as duty free gift, but the experience of users here shows how well it goes depends on your luck. (some users received their items as duty free while others who made the same order around the same time were charged)

Generally smaller and cheaper parcels have a higher chance of passing them.

Q. What are the customs rates for the items I just ordered?

Use the list below as a guide (it can change). You can send a message to the sns cc through their site to confirm the rates before making the order.

Its a mail forwarding service. You will get an address in the US, UK and China when you register with them and they automatically redirect any parcels received there to you.

Do I have to renew my Shop and Ship membership on yearly basis?
No, you donít. When you initially register to Shop and Ship , you pay a one-time non-refundable $45.00 sregistration fee. And then, you only pay Shop and Ship shipping charges and custom duties (if any), when you receive your shipment

o_O what's their selling point ? If we are paying everything lol.. Only advantage I see is those items which don't get shipped to India they make it happen.. anything other than that :scratchchin: ?

Its one of the cheapest and fastest ways to get things from US sites like amazon which they don't usually ship to India (includes all games, consoles and accessories).

Maybe all the games you are interested in releases here, but I usually end up having to import half of the games I play. Sites like Amazon, bestbuy, gamestop etc. also runs regular sales. And devices like the PSV should be cheaper at launch.

btw you can ask sns twitter for a code to register for $5.

That list by aramex doesn't look completely accurate, at least its a bit different from some of the online databases. Its still a good reference though.

Strange. At least that's what their official rep posted on the TE page.

Sorry. :(
Ordered 4 days ago though. Amazon only shipped it today (Free Super Saver Shipping :P).
And Amazon mentions the parcel weight to be 1.73 lbs. That's nearly 800 gms. I guess I'm looking at 18$ shipping + 10.3% taxes at the minimum barring customs. (That's 50% the price of the goods I ordered :suicide:)

@Milo: They're running Rakhi promo till today which entitles anyone to automatically get a 5% discount on shipping. Did you receive it ?
