Services Included

My service fees cover the following features:

  • Seller reliability assessment. I will check the seller’s ratings and feedback. If the seller does not seem capable of providing quality, authentic products, I will inform you and help you to look for alternative sellers. Purchasing from reliable sellers and official platforms will reduce the likelihood of problems with your purchases.
  • Translation and communication of important information e.g. product release dates if it is a preorder, defects and other vital information that I think you should know as a consumer. If there is any specific information that you wish to know, please feel free to ask.
  • Purchasing the product
  • Receiving/collecting of purchased products
  • Inspection of purchased products. Brand-new and sealed products will not be removed from their packaging for inspection unless you request. We are unable to verify the functionality or authenticity of purchased products. Please refer to this page for more about what we are able to verify.
  • Returns / Exchanges of products with defects or mistakes, and any other after-sales service where applicable.
  • Free storage for an indefinite period of time. However, long-term storage is not encouraged as the facility is a residential area and not a dedicated storage warehouse.
  • Consolidation of products from different stores
  • Preparation of parcel for shipping
  • Photo-taking of purchased products is available upon request. Please ask before making shipping arrangements and let me know specifically what parts you wish to see photographed.

How Much Will It Cost?

The payable amount consists of 2 parts:
1) Cost of item + shopping service fees
2) Shipping to You

The following explanation is meant to help you to understand what are the costs involved and to estimate how much you will be spending. The actual payable amount may differ slightly due to various factors and I will issue you a payment breakdown and the payment link for the confirmed amount upon receiving your order by email.

1) Cost of item + Fees

  • Listed prices are in TWD / Taiwan dollars.
  • Buying multiple items from the same store usually entitles you to a combined domestic shipping discount.
  • If the price looks unreasonably cheap or expensive, it is most likely not the actual price.
  • I will calculate for you exactly how much you have to pay before confirming your order, so don’t worry.

Let’s use this listing from Shopee Taiwan as an example.

350 TWD is the price and 60 TWD is the domestic shipping for the 7-11 option.

(a) Open this Mastercard Currency Conversion Calculator

Input the values in the following format:

  • High-value one-time transactions that are 10,000 TWD and above including domestic postage will enjoy a discount on service fees. Please ask me.

(b) Open this Paypal fee calculator

Continuing with the example above, input the following values:

  • Users who can use Singaporean platforms like local bank transfer and Paynow need not pay the Paypal fees.

2) Shipping to your country

This payment will only be required when your purchases are ready for shipping. This portion includes shipping fees, packaging costs and associated administrative costs (e.g. some couriers charge customs clearance fees). I do not charge additional service fees on top of these, but Paypal fees and platform payment fees are billable expenses.

You can choose between EMS, e-packet and registered airmail. Refer to Chunghwa Post for the shipping fee rates. Please note that there are ongoing shipping restrictions to some countries due to Covid-19 and not all shipping methods may be available to you at the time of shipping.

DHL, UPS and Fedex are also available, but at significantly higher rates.

You may ask me for a shipping fee estimate when you place your order, but with most shipping methods charging by volumetric weight instead of physical weight, please understand that it is difficult to estimate the shipping fees since I would not know the volumetric weight of your package until the items are actually packed for shipping.
