    Default Flat rate all inclusive shipping services

    Greetings all,

    Does anyone know of any flat rate shipping services that would allow me to order online, have the package delivered to a US address and then bring it into Jamaica for me? I currently use a service that charges an all inclusive fee of 35%, but their customer service has deteriorated and I'm looking for other options.I prefer companies that charge an all inclusive flat rate.

    Thanks in advance

    Try the email that I sent you in a PM and see if they have what you're looking for. I don't know of a lot of places doing that - the rates usually fluctuate based on the item. Post back your results.

    Here's their website - https://www.exshippingplusja.com
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    No problem. How did it work out? Got the service you were looking for?

    I'm 99.9% sure flat-rate shipping doesn't exist... A flat rate would maybe only apply for packages under 1-2 pounds but not for all items...

    I've emailed them and called. Hopefully they respond – they'll have a client for life

    @ GPRS – Such services do exist. In fact, I've been using a service for the last 2+ years that charges an all inclusive flat percentage to bring items in (with the exception of oversized, very large items where there's a surcharge). It's not related to weight – I brought in a baby crib, stroller etc. I purchase online, have it shipped to their warehouse in Miami, and the goods arrive in Jamaica 2-3 weeks later. I'm just tired of their appalling customer service - which is why I wanted other options.

    No wish to give them an advertisement. Their owner/manager is awful.

    However https://www.exshippingplusja.com/ that @khat provided the info for is a similar service. You purchase online, ship to their warehouse, and then pay 35% when it arrives in Jamaica.

    Their cost calculator is here: https://form.jotform.co/62343582735863
    More info about their service is here: https://www.exshippingplusja.com/how-it-works

    I actually called Ex Shipping Plus today and they were very courteous. I've changed the address of my Amazon Subscribe and Save to the address they provide, and will provide feedback when the items get here, which should be mid/late Nov. So far they look like a well run operation, which couldn't be said of the other company.
