I usually hold give-away prizes over at my mommy blog, The24HourMommy.com. I send the winnings through LBC because it's the courier nearest my place. I normally spend at least Php 145 for one parcel and it's fine with me. However, it becomes too expensive when I give-away more than one gift pack. I asked around and one of my blogger-friends recommended Xend Business Solutions.
Yesterday, I created my account and immediately made waybills for the two parcels I'm sending. I quite had a difficulty waiting for the Xend website to load but I was able to successfully schedule for pick-up in a few minutes. This afternoon, the parcels were picked up and I only spent Php 129 for the 1.3kg parcel I'm sending to Cavite and Php 89 for the small parcel I'm sending to a reader of mine in Bukidnon (Mindanao). I was told that, since it's a Saturday, my parcels will be delivered on Monday and will be received by their respective recipients a day after.
I'm inspired to set up an online shop because of the convenience of sending packages via Xend. Any suggestions on what to sell? Trade show table covers perhaps? Or maybe some baby clothes and stuff? What do you think?
