We know for the fact that Amazon doesn't accept product shipments to some Asian countries including the Philippines. Well, this is due to many cases of fraud credit cards, that is why upon entering your PH delivery address, Amazon will eventually reject it in the checkout process.
Some say Amazon will only deliver small items like DVDs, CDs, or books in the Philippines but not huge stuff or such that are expensive. I also learned that Amazon only prioritizes U.S. or U.K. delivery addresses, so anyone outside U.S./U.K. will alternatively need to use virtual addresses to receive their orders.
With the help of Kango Express, we no longer have to rely on relatives or family members to buy and ship our items to our address here in the Philippines for us.Kango Express is there to help us Shop, Ship, and Save.
Skate Shoes PH was at #HappifyKangoExpressLaunch event last week and discovered the newest package forwarding service in the Philippines: Kango Express. I also received an Amazon Gift Card plus the Kango Express shipping credit.

Here's how to use Kango Express Service

Kango Express doesn’t charge a membership fee, service fee, package handling fee or have any other hidden costs. Pricing is simple and straight forward. Registration is free and currently the company is offering a 20% discount on customers’ first order.
2. Shop with U.S./U.K. Retailers
Upon selecting your items at the retailer’s site, you will complete the checkout and payment process using our U.S. or U.K. warehouse as the ship to address, along with your Kango Express account number referenced in Line 2 of the address. This address information will always be visible to you in your account dashboard once you register and sign in.
Some retailers may not accept payment using international credit cards. In that case, you can use our Buying Service. For a small fee, we’ll place the order for you and make payment. Once you tell us what you want to purchase and make payment, we’ll buy your items for you and arrange for delivery to your Kango Express account.

We will notify you via email once your package has arrived at our warehouse and been updated into your account.
