Q:What are the advantages of "BuyMall sea freight" compares to other shipping companies?

A:All parcels, regardless of payment settlement, will be shipped to Malaysia once received by China Sea Warehouse. There are two advantages of this method. Firstly, users are not rush to make payment since all parcels will be shipped back directly. Secondly, users do not need to worry about multi cartons issue since all of them are already in Malaysia. Users will receive them within few days upon payment.



Q:What are the drawbacks of "Economic sea freight"?

A:Since the customs clearance is through a "special channel", so the probability of the items being confiscated is slightly higher, and it "will not" enjoy the “Safe+" privilege of VIP sea freight.

A:The "Economic sea freight" service basically differs only in two ways:

2. You won't be able to enjoy the "Safe+” service by taking the economic sea freight. The lost items will be claimed with a normal compensation.



Q: I don't know if I should choose "VIP sea freight" or "Economic sea freight".

A:If the items are expensive or rather sensitive items, Buymall recommends you to take the "VIP sea freight" route; if the items are general items, you can choose the "Economic sea freight" route;

A:You just have to send the items to the sea freight warehouse that you want! When entering order details in to BuyMall’s system, you don’t have to specify which sea freight service to use. The system will automatically detect which warehouse the items are sent to.
