hi, i'm new to massdrop. was just wondering how did you have your fidelio delivered to the philippines. i'm also living in manila
Kumusta DocJum! Just use your home or office address and they will deliver it to you or to your local post office. However, this drop has ended and that means you will not be able to join until it reopens. Abang-abang ka ulit, or click the Request button. ;)
I am from Pasig and based on my personal experience on another drop--EZ Go Wallet, the item was delivered to the Pasig CPO. I received a some piece of paper from the post office saying that I have a package waiting that I have to claim. I paid a small amount of P100 to claim my item.
I am expecting a higher fee on this one as this is a "gadget/electronics" thing, you know our customs department, they charge high taxes for these types of items. Bang for the buck naman ang item na ito so I don't really care about how much tax they will impose unless exaggerated and more than what I paid for it.
thank you for sharing your experience with the shipping fees, mcometa. i'm still trying to learn the tricks in dealing with buying items from abroad. i will absolutely try another drop and have it delivered to my address in manila. i agree that it is worth paying a little extra for the customs fee because in the end you are still saving a lot more than buying new headphones here.
