How to Order Amazon Items and get shipped to Philippines?

We know Amazon doesn't accept product shipment to some Asian countries including the Philippines due to many cases of fraudulent credit card transactions. So, the moment you enter your delivery address to Amazon it will reject in the checkout process.

Some say Amazon will only deliver selected items such as CD's and books in the Philippines but not for huge items or such with high value. While I search online, I learned that Amazon only prioritizes U.S delivery addresses and anyone outside the U.S  will alternatively use virtual addresses to receive their orders. 



Using my virtual address, provided by Johnny Air, I was able to receive my first order from Amazon US, a  500GB Toshiba portable drive with USB 3.0 support with P800 charge (freight fee-only and no customs charge at all). 

How easy was that? At first, I contacted Johnny Air Cargo, a Philippine-based cargo company that offers Air Cargo Padala for online shopping and retailing services and their responsive Customer Service personnel advised me to use their  New York delivery address and I will be contacted the moment my package arrives. 

Here are the simple steps on how to start:


1. While checking out your order at Amazon, contact the nearest Johnny Air Cargo branch in your place. 


Find their local branch and virtual addresses here: http://www.johnnyair.com/?page=72

Sample address  line that I have used:
AGT/My Name
Johnny Air Plus,
717 Newark Avenue
Jersey City New Jersey 07306-2829

2. Next, wait for the notification from Amazon which includes your order tracking ID.


3. Inform the Johnny Air customer service about your item with order tracking ID emailed by Amazon to you then, ask how much your total freight charge for your package is. 


4. Usually, your total freight fee charge will be based on the size and weight of the item( somewhat $6 per kilo) plus a cheap handling fee charge. 


5. Wait for 2 weeks for your package to arrive and prepare the cash payment.


On a rare occasion, it will not arrive on schedule, you should contact Johnny Air to know the status of your package.
