Ordering from Anderton's
« on: October 21, 2019, 02:47:21 AM »
May naka-try na ba dito mag order sa Anderton's? Gano katagal bago dumating yung order, and may mga additional taxes ba? I did the computation and mas mura yung pedal na gusto kong kunin sa kanila kasama na yung shipping.

I've tried hard na mag order locally para makatulong sa mga local shops dito, kaso ambagal ng service nila and mukhang walang patutunguhan yung order ko (not going to name any names). Kinausap ko yung personnel sa shop getting the stock for me, kaso walang nangyare. I tried messaging the shop online, no response. I now live in CDO kaya hindi na din ganun kadali kumuha ng items sa mga local shops kahit sa mga small specialty shops.

Add 15% para sa customs/taxes? Yun ang nakita ko sa website nila for audio/video equipment eh.

Also are you computing correctly? Credit card companies always have their own finance charges placed on top of the transaction/s. Usually its 0.85 - 3.85% kapag hindi local currency ang pambayad mo so you have to put that into consideration as well. :)

We'll see kung pano babagsak dito yung item. Just placed my order.

Worry ko kasi one time sa amazon anlaki ng hiningi ng DHL saken for taxes para lang sa CDs (10 years ago). I learned how to go around that para walang taxes sa QC. I'm learning my way around CDO. :)

I paid straight :)

Mura ng Marshall sa Andertons less VAT pa tapos 65gbp lang ang shipping.  Looked it up, guitars and amps have 0% tariff rates. Kaso may local VAT on total shipped cost.  Plus DHL can screw you with local charges. 

Please keep us posted.

Yep! DHL screwed me up before kaya medyo cautious na ako.

Sa QC dati may work around sa post office kaya di ako nagwo worry masyado, kaso DHL ata courier of choice ng andertons.

Just a quick update: DHL's website says the item will arrive Tuesday, Oct 29 via Cebu - CDO. I'm guessing kung Manila baka mas maaga pa dadating.

When did you place your order?  Mabilis na rin delivery considering 4 days ago mo lang sinimulan itong thread na ito.

Nag order ako Oct 21. Yeah, all things considered, mabilis na sya. Kinakabahan lang ako right now kung magkano ipapatong ng DHL. I'll check their receipt and from there try to figure out kung pano makakamura.

The package arrived today. Total cost sa website 136.82. the item is 95.++ And shipping is 41. Total cost is 136.82. napamahal lang sa shipping. Almost half na ng item.

Local tax ng DHL: 0.

Local price ng item: 11k. Okay fine, 10,995.

All things considered, it's still cheaper. I guess it's more of an ethical dilemma for me if I want to support the local shops or save money. But, after the non-existent customer service, I might have to boycott that local shop nationwide.

Very encouraging. Kunsabagay less than 10k pesos yung order mo. Kinakabahan ako sa amp and cabs. Hahaha!

That's the goal. Baka pwedeng hindi na kelangan lumabas ng bahay to buy stuff.

Try ko paabutin 20-30k next time para mas sulit yung GBP40 na shipping. HOPEFULLY, hindi pa rin maningil si DHL. Then maybe move on to bigger things like guitars and cabs -- but that's still a long ways to go. But first, kelangan kumita ng pera para may pambili. LOL

how much locally? what about the warranty? i think that's part of what you're paying for locally

anything less than 10k, no customs taxes for the landed value of the item. that excludes shipping

yeah, DHL and FedEx chargre exhorbitant fees, especially for warehousing

8.9k from anderton's, 11k locally. Warranty, my stuff usually lasts more than 3 years and after which, is no longer covered by warranty. I might try to go for ~20-30k next time I order and see if I get charged by DHL.
