Thanks for the China Division link. I don't think the track and trace link shows how to calculate volumetric weight for packages.

Although it is interesting that you have put together a list of parcel tracking links.

Hi Katrina,

Yes unfortunately that is quite difficult. The volumetric calculator was built as a guide, as are the reshippers ones, but you must have some idea what the dimensions of the handbag you wish to buy are?

I think the best thing to do would be to find a reshipper that repackages your international shopping down to the smallest boxes that they can fit the item into to. That way you will cut the shipping costs down. I know you have previously mentioned Reship.com, have you asked them if they will do that for you?

Try asking the shop what the dimensions are for the handbag you wish to purchase. It might be a good idea to get all the information before you buy then you can better calculate how much it will cost you to have it shipped to New Zealand.

I hope this helps, please post any other queries or questions you may have, I am happy to try and help.

Hiya :) just wondering how the heck you can come up with a volumetric size for a price calculator when you have no idea what size box it gonna ship it in?
I want to buy a women's handbag but it's hard to know what to estimate :(
Thanks
