Shipping Cart Experience - 2020 Review

Hi everyone! I would always want to try Shipping Cart as I'm looking for a trusted forwarder from the US. I have tried Jinio as my first forwarder (shared my experience here), still would like to try another forwarder this time - I'm also considering that we are experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic, I'd like to know how ShippingCart handles the items, fees, transit & communication service. This is not sponsored in any way, just sharing my experience.

Importing outside the country seems to be cheaper in wholesale and maybe even hard to find even locally. Our first item is these case fan value pack from Amazon which my hubby ordered.
Shipped out from the Amazon seller May 21 and Delivered May 23 on out Shipping Cart Address.

On the same day, I got an email alert - a new package has been accepted. I'm not exactly sure if what is the content of the package as I also ordered from several sites that week. There's no other information except this email. This notification will not appear on the app - at least on my current app version 1.0.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, uploading of items may take up to 9 business days. The best way to communicate with Shipping Cart (will call it SC) is via email. 

By June 6, I got a new email that it has been processed and ready for shipping! content has been updated as well. Now visible on my SC account/app. 

and now the most interesting part: How much is the shipment cost?
Since we're still waiting for other packages, we will try initial check out just to see the shipment cost for this set of fans alone. SC also sends the photo of the content - got 3 photos including the measurements.
Please take note on the chargeable weight - the basis for air and dimension - the basis for sea rates

  • Air Cargo - $6.99/pound
  • Air Cargo with Special Handling - $11.99/pound
  • Sea Cargo $1.75/inch (unlimited weight)

I have entered the product valuation and check out air and sea cargo rates below:
By AIR - $22.58
Computation for Air rates below:

For Sea rates:
by SEA  $28.22

Computation for Sea Cargo rates below:
Since we have more incoming packages, there's a high probability that we'll use sea cargo.
I will update this post as soon as we completed all pending package and have them shipped out :) 

Edit: June 16, all my boxes arrived already to my designated US address. I choose AIR CARGO this time, let's see if it will arrive by July 17, 2020.

Please take note that this is 7 huge packages from different sites and around 25lbs or 12kgs chargeable weight that why it cost way higher after check out. USD 177.12 or around PHP 9100.
