Sorry for digging up this old thread. I have a question about a certain website SwansonVitamins. Has anyone ever tried ordering online and have you received your package? The site sells a product I buy locally and the price is only half of how much it's sold here. I plan on buying in bulk (mga 10 lang naman siguro, not that many) to save but I'm worried about customs and taxes plus the possibility of losing the product while in transit. The site doesn't have insurance in case of lost but they do have refund policy. Thanks in advance.

I checked the Swanson Vitamins website, located naman pala sila sa US. If you don't want to go the long way and suffer the hassle of Customs and the Post Office, I suggest you sign up for GCASH AMEX to get My Shopping Box service. Here's the discussion thread about it: http://www.pinoyexchange.com/forums/showthread.php?t=652983
Pero to sum it up, yung My Shopping Box (MSB) is a freight service na magfoforward ng packages mo from the US to the Philippines without passing na through the Customs and Post Office, there would be on extra taxes, and have little to no losses in transit. I use the service mysef. PM me or reply ka sa threads if you need more info.
