    @aussie,

    i did some rearch looks like this will help

    http://www.bmexpress.com/bmexpress/aircargo.asp#reverse-cargo

    but most of our kababayan uses DHL

    maybe you could check it @ any DHL branch in the Philippines.

    hope it helped a bit.

    @bragadochi Pwde via dhl. Yung mom ko nagpapadala ng pancit canton, nestea ice tea, clover chips, etc.

    Para mag-send ng goods papuntang pinas - try your local filipino store, hindi lang filipino grocery meron din silang video rentals, remittances, karinderia or restaurant with karaoke sessions, shipping ng balik bayan boxes, bentahan karin ng sim (load) pang tawag, nagbebenta rin sila ng concert tickets ng mga filipino artist na magperform sa area nila, at kung anu-anu pa :)

    Guys,
    I am similarly interested in reverse freight.
    I would never use Philpost (they seem to struggle with postcards even) and operators like DHL are very expensive.
    BM Express is a company I know well and am considering them. But then there is all the huge customs minefield as well :-(
    There were a lot of responses in Tagalog (which I sadly can't understand that well), can anyone clarify if any of the subsequent posts had other suggestions?

    Thank ye in advance.

    For a 25kg box to Australia, it will be P9400. Even though they accept foods, meron pa rin mga bawal like dairy or egg product. Yung milk eh dahil sa foot and mouth disease.

    For a 25kg box to Australia, it will be P9400.
    hello! for the longest time, confused ako sa sistema ng BOB. i had a thorough research on the procedure. acc to a reliable source, FEDEX is not accepting used items, u need to declare all items as gifts. is this true? in ur case, what was the step by step procedure that u had? lahat ba ng items mo in good shape nakarating sa perth? salamat po!

    ... is on dependent visa. main applicant code 261313; 175 e-lodged june 6, 2011; visa grant mar 13, 2012; NSW-based.

    DHL, 25kg is Php 9,700. Dadalhin sayo and pickup ang box. Meron din iba sizes available, iba din ang prices. Hindi nagkakalayo price sa Fedex. LBC ridiculous fee of 19,700php. Ang UPS close second at 17,000+ for same weight.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
