When PHLPOST started having issues because of Covid-19 I stopped using their services since March. But now it looks like things are getting back to normal and I’m ready to use their service again. Not all countries are supported yet but most of the countries I ship to are now open.
I will be starting to ship all pending orders very soon. So if you’re one of these pending orders, I want to thank you for waiting! Contact me to confirm your shipping address or you can also reply to the announcement email that I will be sending out later.
Here are the list of countries: (I cannot do Post shipping yet to countries in red.)
United States (US)
United Kingdom (UK)
United Arab Emirates
[May 29, 2020] UPDATE: I just found out a cheaper shipping option with FedEx or UPS. So let me know for a shipping quote.
Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing well.
If you missed my first UPDATE please read UPDATE: Covid-19 Impact on Shipping.
I want to update you on the current status of shipment of your pending order and my plans for moving forward during this uncertain time. As of now, PHLPOST’s International shipment operation is still suspended. This is probably because of Philippine Airlines’ Flight Suspensions Until May 31 although there’s a plan to resume their operation on June 1.
So while we wait for PHLPOST to resume their international shipping services, I would like to offer an alternative for shipping your order. I can ship via DHL but the cost will be a bit higher than usual. The current shipping cost from Philippines to US, UK, Germany, Italy, France, or any Europe countries is $61 minus of course the shipping cost you already paid. There’s also PayPal fees for Peso to USD conversion but I will just cover that. I know it’s a bit high and I hope you understand.
Stay safe and thank you!
I have just learned today that PHLPOST’s international shipment is still suspended “until further notice”. Although they said previously they will resume international shipment after April 30. I decided to stop accepting orders for now since I’m not sure when will PHLPOST resume normal operation. There’s a chance that the suspension will be lifted after the extended Philippines ECQ (Enhanced Community Quarantine) period on May 15, 2020.
I will be accepting orders as soon as I can guarantee that PHLPOST resumes International shipment operation. I will be following the updates and will inform you as needed. In the meantime, you can subscribe to the item/product you want and I will notify when shipping is available.
I wanted to wait until Thursday(April 30, 2020) but there’s also this issue with PayPal retaining transaction fees even when issuing a refund although it won’t take effect until April 30, 2020. So that means I would need to know now (before April 30, 2020) from you my customer with pending order if you want a refund or wait until I’m able to ship your order. Refunds after April 30th will have a negative effect on my business as I will also be paying for the transaction fees that PayPal has retained because of their policy change.
I ask for your patience and understanding in these difficult times. Rest assured that if you decide to wait I will ship all pending orders no matter when.

Firstly, I’d like to apologize for the delay in shipment for all pending orders. I have just learned that PHLPOST has just resumed operation but international shipping will not resume until
April 30, 2020 due to the ongoing Covid-19 issue.
Rest assured that I will ship all pending orders as soon as I can.
I really appreciate your support and once again kindly accept my sincere apologies for the delay.
Stay safe, be well.
