G'day, unless I made mistakes quoted me to receive $139.99 basketball shoes from USA $230.85 for shipping only. It's for a average sized 9yr old to give estimate on size box. Does that sound about right? Thanks Kane

Answer this

Hi Kane,

Without knowing the exact dimensions it's hard to say! If you haven't already, I recommend giving our ShopMate team a call on 1300 624 475 so they can take a look into it for you.

vanilla asked on Aug 22, 2017

Answer this

Hi Vanilla,

I can see why you'd be worried here, was it your home address that you were trying to add to your ShopMate Account? Or was it the ShopMate address you're trying to add to the online checkout of the store you're shopping at?

DAISY asked on Jul 11, 2017

Answer this

Hi Daisy,

I'm pleased to see this was delivered on the 12th.

My item was delivered by DHL on the 15/6/17. ShopMate says it'll take 1-2 business days for me to receive an email to pay my shipping back to Australia. It's been 5 business days and I still haven't received anything. It's a birthday gift (shoes. so it's nothing dangerous) and an expensive one as well so I'm a bit worried. My ShopMate account says nothing... DHL is no longer showing me the delivery because it's already delivered. The only proof I have is from the website that I purchased the item off. I've clicked on "My Shopping" in ShopMate and it says "Your parcel will appear here within 48 hours after it arrives at our warehouse" but I have not seen anything.

Roxy

Hello friend, could you please help me check where is my this package (LP005522803HK)? It has not been moved since 5th, thank you so much.

DAISY asked on Jun 12, 2017

Answer this

Hi Daisy,

Sure, Looking at the scans I can see this one has left HK on the 6th but hasn't yet been scanned into our networks for delivery. These items usually take around 10 business days to be delivered so it shouldn't be far away.

Roxy

I've always had great experience with Shopmate. When coupon codes are available I always tend to do US shopping at that time (mainly items used to help with fundraisers). Recently, one of the retailers I bought from in the USA delivered the contents of my order (19 items) in 7(!!) different packages to my US Shopmate address. 3 of the packages were delivered within the coupons code promo but the other 4 packages arrived the next day, after coupon had expired. Not only are the other 4 packages nearly exactly the same weight but vary greatly in postage price (& postage actually far exceeds the cost of the contents in the packages). Bundling fee discount does little to reduce postage total of 4 packages. Quite a number of these items are intended to be used to help with fundraising for a well known charity. As a loyal customer, this has certainly put me off using Shopmate services in future. Would I please be able to use a coupon code as a one off? Thanks so much for your help.

I have four parcels coming from Portland Oregon and I just wanted to know what would it mean if I deselected the 'Packaging included' button on all 4 orders?

Jarmmammone asked on Mar 09, 2017

Answer this

Hi Jarmmammone,

I'm not too sure what you mean; do you want us to repack your orders for you? We won't send them all together as one item and there may be a fee for this.

You can contact our ShopMate customer contact centre on 1300 624 475 between 8am-6pm (AEST) Monday – Friday for further support or email us at [email protected]

daisy xu asked on Mar 09, 2017

Answer this

Hi Daisy,

Article RT358037197HK arrived in Australia on the 20th but has no further scans. I would recommend the sender contact their local postal authority to raise an enquiry, and they will in turn liaise with Aus Post to determine what's happening.

Hi, I recently got a package delivered to the ShopMate address in the US (Portland, OR) but the Suite number was missing from the order from the US retailer. I have logged a ticket (Ref 09699645) but haven't heard anything. I believe the Suite number identify us for the forwarding. Can you help?
