If you’ve read about my article on waiting for 12 days for the delivery of my item with Qoo10 Singapore with normal non Express Delivery Services, I actually made a few more purchases, and the items arrived promptly, in less than 3 days!!
Last week, there was a contest to win the new Samsung S3 by spending just S$5 for a chance.
I want the new Samsung Galaxy S3!! So I immediately made a purchase. However, although I spent $6.30 for the item (a nice Black Unisex Simple Buckle Belt), it actually cost S$4.80, ie. Shipping was S$1.50. Thus I could not participate in the contest with this purchase.
(This was when I wished the item was slightly more expensive, ie. just 20cents more!! haha)
Being Kiasu (Afraid to lose out), I made another purchase, making sure it is more than S$5, spending S$10.70 (Free Shipping) this time on a multi-USB charger for iPhone, iPad and preparing for my New Samsung S3 (IF I win)!
The belt arrived 2 days later, and the multi-USB charger arrived 3 days later (if we excludes weekends, because it is considered non-working days for delivery).
Check Out my promptly arrived item:
Note: iPhone®, iPad®, Charging stand and USB charging cables not included
Although Normal Delivery worked for me, my friend, Irene, had a real bad experience recently, losing S$80 in transaction from an online Blogspot (NOT Qoo10).
And neither the Blogshop nor the delivery service people wanted to be responsible because it was not a registered mail. More about her experience here:

You should, at your own discretion, decide if you want to consider paying the extra for registered mail services, (although for me, being a cheapskate, i will usually just opt for normal delivery service, unless the cost of the item is like S$50 or more..)
However, if you purchase from Qoo10 Singapore, there are some form of Buyer’s Protection for you, because if you did not receive your items, Qoo10 could help you out.
Besides, if you make your payment through the suggested payment options, the payment amount would be held by Qoo10, and it will only be released to the seller if you’ve confirmed the Delivery.
