I am an avid fan of Amazon, actually, online shopping in general.
However, it’s not always easy to ship to the Philippines if you’re buying something from the US. Thankfully, I found the solution.
Introducing, Johnny Air Padala ⎯ a forward shipping service that does the leg work for you!
I’ve used this service before but it was always when someone I know from the US would take care of shipping my package to me. Since this time around, I didn’t want to bother anyone, I tried their forward shipping straight from the comforts of my home.
Since I recently got an iPhone 8 Plus, I wanted to grab a couple of accessories to complement it. I initially canvased the items I would want to purchase here in Manila but it was incomplete and expensive. I then decided to purchase online, via Amazon.
For those of you who are wondering, here’s what I did upon clicking checkout:
- Input the following information as your checkout details:
- Upon confirmation of your order, email Johnny Air Padala at email@example.com, don’t forget to provide the tracking information (including estimated date of arrival for your package), details of your purchased items, your name, contact information and address. Wait for them to respond to your email.
- When you get notified that your package has arrived at their office, email them to reconfirm if they have received it, they will be issuing you a tracking number which you can track at johnnyaircargotracking.com
- Upon arrival of your package in the Philippines, your designated Johnny Air branch (which you identified via email) will contact you as to when your package is ready for pick up and how much the shipping would cost. Do take note that for mall branches, you need to pick your package up within 5 days of them contacting you or else they will return your package to the warehouse.
- Once you get notified, head to your designated Johnny Air branch, pay the shipping fee and claim your package.
And there you go, online shopping made easy! Now, for those of you who are wondering, here’s a screenshot of my package as it journeys across at the ocean:
Hope you learned a thing or two, now go and shop!
