Thank you for visiting Mommy Lynn Blog. My name is Will and I am from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
My wife, Lynn and I have been running our online business since March 2018.
The main product of our business is a type of health and wellness wearable technology.
That’s a fancy way of saying we sell garment and apparel online.
The product that we sell consists of compression pants, socks, T-shirt, panties, boxer, head scarf, arm sleeves etc.
These are not the normal sport apparel.
The garment that we sell online are made in Japan with a special far infrared ray (FIR) emitting fabric.
For example, the FIR emitting compression pants main feature is help to improve the blood circulation at the legs and feet of the wearer.
The FIR emitting apparel is very unique and they are fully designed and 100% made in Japan.
We have sold many of these FIR garment via online and we do have buyers from within Malaysia and outside Malaysia.
In this article, I thought of sharing how I send an order from Malaysia to our international buyers.
I will show you how to find the cheapest cost to send a parcel to Vietnam.
How do you find the best international courier service rates in Malaysia?
For me, I used a service provided by Easyparcel.com/.
What is Easyparcel?
It is a portal that provides comparison of courier services rates in Malaysia.
In the following section, I will show you how I use Easyparcel to find the best international courier service rates for a packages I want to deliver to Vietnam.
Recently, I have an order from a customer located in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
I will show you step by step how I used Easyparcel to get the best parcel delivery service price in Malaysia.
When I log into my Easyparcel account, I will go straight to the dashboard area.
For this order, I will choose the Single Parcel option.
Next, in the Get Instant Quotes section, I will choose the FROM area as Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur because the parcel will be sent out from my house located in KL.
The TO destination I will select Vietnam and then enter Ho Chi Minh area zip code / postcode which is 700000.
Usually, the package I deliver overseas will weight less than 1 kg.
Therefore in the Weight section, I will key in 1.00.
Finally, I will click on the “Quote & Book” button and wait for Easyparcel to get the delivery rates from multiple international courier service providers based on my requirements.
The following are the delivery rates from the courier service providers in Malaysia served up by Easyparcel.
As you can see from the results above, I have the option to choose Aramex, FedEx, SR Express, EMS etc.
I’ve blanked out the rates from the courier services because it changes every week due to supply and demand.
If you are sending your parcel during peak period such as before Christmas or Chinese New Year, be prepared to pay a more expensive rate.
Whichever provider you want to use, just click on the “Book” button next to it.
Do I always go for the cheapest courier service provider?
To be honest, no I don’t.
I would use the most reliable courier service based on my experience.
I would rather pay a little more to have a peace of mind.
I want to make sure the parcel will reach my international customers without any drama.
Which courier service is the best to deliver parcel from Malaysia to Vietnam?
Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer for you.
Your experience using the international courier service will depend on the items you want to send and also the receiver’s location.
Here’s a tip which will help you to save from money.
Before you send a parcel from Malaysia to Vietnam, make sure you check if you need to pay any import tax and duties.
Different country will have different import tax and duties requirement.
To find the import tax requirement, I use a website call Easyship.com.
Easyship has a Duties and Tax Calculator to Vietnam.
To use the Duties and Taxes Calculator, enter the Shipment Origin which is Malaysia.
Next, enter the Shipment Destination which is Vietnam.
You also have to enter the Items Selling Price and Product Category.
Click on the “Get Quote” button to check if you need to pay the import tax and duties.
If you are required to pay the tax and duties, remember to charge your customer accordingly.
There you have it, my step by step guide on how I use Easyparcel to find the best international courier service rates in Malaysia for my online business.
If you are running your own home business and you want to know how to check the best international courier service rates, I hope my sharing above on Easyparcel has been helpful for you.
