MyUS – Personal Shopper Service Experience

MyUS

I tend to buy a lot of things online, and recently I have purchased items which aren’t readily available on Amazon or Ebay and the website has issues with a billing address which is different then a shipping address. When that is the case I have reverted to MyUS Personal Shopping Service a few times now. Sometimes they have been the best option and the best service to go with it.

I have done several orders with them, some normal value and some very high value and they have been excellent in handling complex orders such as custom computer gaming machines to ordering furniture. I wanted to get some items and I wasn’t able to personally order them so they were able to do order it for me.

Keep in mind that they charge a flat 6% fee on the final amount be it large or small. I think it is an acceptable fee because of the quality of their service when going through the process and their feedback.

Before The Order:

  • They send you an email verifying your order before making it
  • They clearly show you all the details and all the different options you have to ordering the product
  • You can write all the customizations you want in the note box

After The Order:

  • You get notification that you have been charged for the amount once the order goes through
  • They get back to you with details of the order, and they reply quickly to your questions
  • Once the order is received in your mailbox you are notified like always and they take multiple pictures which is fantastic
  • They quickly ship it out and you get your order

Overall a very smooth service and highly recommend if you are looking for highquality service, and its worth since sometimes I order heavy items and turns out to be cheaper to get it from the US then it is to buy it locally.

MOC Stopped It

HaloLegendsBD

I have a package from MyUS shipped through DHL which came in with 4 Hard Drives, a motherboard, some ram, and 4 Blu Rays. All the Blu Rays are animated movies, Green Lantern, Dante’s Inferno, Halo Legends, and Justice League Crisis On Two Earths. I have come to the conclusion that you can only buy cartoons on Blu-Ray or DVD into Kuwait so they won’t stop it. Bt I was wrong, it has been two days since they said they would get clearance and I told them its only a cartoon why would you stop it. They really drive me nuts, and they wonder why there is so much torrent downloads in Kuwait, people are honestly willing to purchase but if you make it this much of a headache then they won’t buy online. Put a 5% tax that has to be paid and that is it, no inspection nothing, Customs is supposed to make money for the country rather then waste time inspecting toys and other items. It will probably be clear in a day or two but this is seriously very annoying, and I just bought these because I like these animated movies so much that I decided to buy them. They don’t care about the other items, I have had more electronics shipped in in one box before without it being stopped at all but for movies they stop it.

MyUS.com BluRay Shipment

I have been saving up a bunch of Blu-Rays for some time now on my Amazon Wish List. And I decided to ship them all one go through MyUs.com shipping service. This was the ultimate test, and I chose DHL Express Service to see what would happen to this shipment and how many BluRays would be confiscated from this extensive list of epic and lifetime movies. And thrown into the mix is one Sonos ZP90, an addition to my current Sonos unit, to play music in other areas.

I had several shipments of Blu-Rays and the ZP90, and MyUS combined all the items into one big box for easier shipping. 23 lbs in total for all the items combined, turned out to be $180, the items got into the MyUS mailbox in Florida over a two day period, so after getting several boxes I clicked to combine them all and ship, the next day I get a DHL tracking number to Kuwait. Three days later all the items are in Kuwait and I just give them my civil ID and pay 10 KD for the tax of the full value of the invoiced items. Overall a much better experience, much faster, cleared in two days from customs and delivered to my house, couldn’t ask for a better service. MyUS is only good for heavy shipments as others have mentioned, its too expensive for small parcels, so if you want to order a bunch of items try combining them one shot and sending them over in one heavy box, turns out to be a lot cheaper then Aramex and a lot less headache. I will use Aramex for small shipments but for big shipments I’m using MyUS.
