Hi guys, been awhile since I last updated this space. Hope everyone’s rocking the last quarter of 2018. Getting married usually means a lot of change is coming, and with the wedding coming up in approximately 2 months, I have been swarmed with work assignments and wedding planning details.
Of late, one of the most important things that I have been working on is de-cluttering and re-organizing my room (and life).
For those of you whom are unaware, I am an avid seller at Carousell (@JuzJingQi) since 2012; and the account is used mainly to list my preloved items at a fraction of the cost price! I sell all kinds of items from apparels, books, skincare items to even home decoration items. So, if you are looking for a good deal, make sure you check out my account! My loss will be your gain. 😉
Confession time; honestly, as a seller on Carousell, I am both happy and sad whenever I make a deal. Happy because I get to clear my wardrobe space, but sad because there’s so many follow up work to do – i.e. to pack, weigh, post and mail the item. On weekdays, I barely have time to make it to the post office to join the queue to weigh the item (plus there’s no SingPost near my workplace!) and on weekends, it’s such a time waster to spend so much time to queue in SingPost 😡
Lately, I have been hooked on using SmartPac and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! If you are an online seller/frequent online shopper and you haven’t heard of this awesome mailing method, you have to read till the end. Trust me; you will thank me for it later!
P.S. Also, read till the end to find out more about the current promotion deal~
WHAT IS SMARTPAC? SmartPac is basically a pre-paid postal service for your domestic delivery within Singapore. There are many advantages of using SmartPac and I am going to list down the advantages of using SmartPac.
5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD USE SMARTPAC –
Smartpac is for smart online shoppers. Why? It includes a delivery to your doorstep, so you can stay at the comfort of your home to await the arrival of your purchases! If you are a buyer, you don’t have to worry about having to arrange someone at home to collect your parcel. This is because if you aren’t at home, SmartPac will be automatically re-directed to your letterbox. You can then collect it anytime when you are available!
In essence, SmartPac is a postage-paid doorstep delivery method. If you are an online seller, SmartPac is the ultimate time-saver of your life. It makes selling faster and more efficient for you. You can skip the queue at local post office and there’s no need to weigh your items to calculate postage before sending your parcels. With a flat rate, you do not have to worry about postage costs or pasting stamps!
Simply use a suitable SmartPac (according to the weight of your item) and you can drop it at ANY street posting box to post your item! With 3 sizes, there’s SmartPac Mini, SmartPac Lite and SmartPac Box that you can choose from.
(3) GUARANTEED DELIVERY
You will never ever lose your parcel again.
Here’s sharing my favourite part of using SmartPac, it has a tracking number to track the location of your parcel! You can track your item’s delivery status anytime via www.singpost.com or SingPost Mobile App. Even though SmartPac is slightly more expensive than normal postage, it buys you a peace of mind which is totally worth the extra cost!
(4) QUALITY PACKAGAING
For SmartPac Lite and Mini, the packaging is waterproof! You never have to worry about ruining the contents of your parcel during rainy days.
(5) EASE OF USE
If you have been following me for awhile, you would know that I host frequent giveaways on my Instagram (@JacelynPhang), and I usually use SmartPac to send the items too. All I have to do is indicate the mailing address, seal the packaging and send them out. For this recent Recherche’s giveaway, I am extremely pleased with the delivery speed. My follower mentioned that she received the parcel the next working day after I have posted the item!
Wait! There’s also POLY M which I have to rave about.
What is Poly M? Poly M works exactly like SmartPac, except that it excludes the tracking number. It is slightly cheaper that SmartPac and has 2 sizes available (1 for item up to 600g, and the other for item up to 1.2kg).
This is more suitable for buyers whom are not in a hurry to get your purchased items as delivery might take 3-5 days.
