Shopping online is as convenient as it can get—you can do it anytime and practically anywhere, and sometimes there are even better deals online than in stores! The problem usually though stems from shipping, especially from those coming from overseas. After my horrific experience with PHLPost, I was on the lookout for alternatives and My Shopping Box (MSB) was one of them.
I first encountered MSB from a blogger’s event called Blogapalooza. My trauma from PhilPost was still quite fresh then that I’m interested in anything that could bring my packages cheaper and more efficiently. Although MSB currently only accepts US-based orders, I thought it was worth my time to know more about its services. So how does it work?
I haven’t personally used MSB’s services just yet so I can’t tell if the delivery days are accurate (for air cargo at least) but since it delivers your packages right at your doorstep, it is very convenient and you don’t risk additional preposterous charges from customs that would gobble up the discounts you made from your online purchases. Just a tip though: due to congestion at the ports of Manila, avoid sending by sea unless you’re sending quite a lot and is willing to wait an indefinite long while!
