Living in Indonesia can be inconvenient at times, especially when all I did was online shopping when I couldn't find the things I needed and wanted here. I resorted to ebay, amazon, and other online stores that's sadly located mainly in the US. Though they actually cost more cheaper than some of what some local sellers offer, but the international shipping fee is something I always need to reconsider again and again before I make a purchase. I mean, if I need to buy 5-7 products from 3 different online stores and different online shopping platforms, then my shipping fee would be 3 times pricier. Not to mention the extra charge for the custom duty and stuff. Knowing how it works here, I'm pretty sure the custom duty fee would be half of the product value so I never really want to shop from the US, even though many of the things that I want are based in the states. I'm lucky enough my boyfriend never complain about the amount of my shopping bags he has to pack among his stuff in his luggage everytime he visits me. But he doesn't come here every month so I can only shop through him once a year (sadly) and how exactly I can wait for a year to get the stuff I need? I can't.
I was excited when I heard about MyMallBox. It is a package forwarding company that surely is a big help for non Americans to shop and get their packages safely to the rest of the world. I got my items in 2 days after MyMallBox shipped it so I couldn't be more excited.
