Courier Query - Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hi all


This is probably a silly question but i wanted to get your take on this.


I am about to order some cosmetic product samples from America (I am in Sydney, Australia) and they have come back and said the following;


"For shipping all we need is courier name and account number, we will then call to schedule the pick up once the order is ready to ship."


As this is for a business venture I imagine this means that I need to setup a courier for them to deal with??? Or have a read this wrong?!


Would appreciate any info on this as I'm a little lost at the moment.


Thanks everyone,

it sounds to me, like yes, they want you to have an account with a courier, and they will ship through that courier.


At my current job, we use DHL for international deliveries, and we pay monthly, via an account. It sounds to me like they are asking for a set-up similar to this, so that you will be charged for the delivery through the courier company you are already paying for.


Does that make sense?

Yes, for sure, you need to take courier service in this regard. Usually, people perform such tasks in advance but I don't know why you didn't hire the courier service in this regard. Secondly, you should also ask the courier company does it have insurance in the case of damage of any of your products.

It sounds to me like they are asking you to book the courier service yourself which is weird?


Why can't they just use USPS, which if it's only samples should be fine, and the cheapest method?


DHL (or FedEx or UPS or any of the others) is going to cost you a small fortune to send something which seems insignificant from the US to Australia unless I'm missing something and you need these shades and can't find them anywhere else?

    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.   
    • I think both of them are looking awesome. However, I like the grey more. I can understand how tough it is to go with a single option. I am also willing to get an awesome men graphic tee for my husband from here but it is getting tough for me to go with a single option because I like all of them. However, I shortlisted these two. What do you think which one is more good. 
    • At Spiceurbeauty, we use only the safest hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which are semi-permanent only. The effects will fade gradually as the filler biodegrades but should last between 9 to 12 months. Excessive exercise or dehydration can contribute to minimizing the benefits of hyaluronic fillers. To maintain your fuller lips it is recommended that you come back to us on an annual basis or sooner for a smaller top up if desired and deemed suitable. The filler will biodegrade and be excreted naturally over time.
    • The Lip fillers that we use at Spiceurbeauty are manufactured with an anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment less painful as it numbs the skin. We would not carry out lip treatments without adding anaesthesia due to client safety. If during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, tell your practitioner and ask for a break Or if you can have additional topical cream
