    Do they deliver and which office is your home office to pick up. I have CPS but because Amazon has been collecting some sales tax maybe I would use them.
    How long do they take to set up an account and are they prompt to notify?

    I'm thinking about setting up an online e-commerce store. Is there anyone else here that does this in this country and has tried the local post or another affordable service? What's the best way to mail something to the U.S.?

    I've looked into DHL and at $50+ for a small package, that seems astronomical.

    Local post? Yeah more research needed. The other option is ship everything by bus or see if any of the local couriers (EPS, CPS, etc) are interested in domestic shipments. Delivery to residential addresses is going to be an ongoing problem.

    If you locate in a major city and local business takes off, you might be able to convince a bunch of motos to hang around wherever the stuff gets put in boxes and addressed and toss the moto guys a flat delivery fee for each parcel they deliver in the city.

    You can use Vimenpaq for national shipments (100 pesos for under 10 pounds). Also Harry Heinsen ships to principal cities of the DR and they ship door to door and are extremely affordable (150 pesos SD to Bávaro door to door for 1 cubic foot).

    I have used BMCargo for years for receiving packages. But I had my first problem last year with a letter. I use a mail forwarding service to receive all my mail. They then package it and forward to the address I specify. I sent package only containing mail to BMCargo location in Florida and they would not forward it to me.

    They said the issue was credit cards located inside the package. Then they gave me a lot of difficulty over two days when I sent a courier to pick up the package and then send it to me directly (I was in the US at the time). It wound up costing me 70 USD because the courier company had to send them to the BMCargo location twice. I was not happy. But I learned. I still use BMCargo for my packages. But have continue to use MBE for all my mail services. The only reason I switched initially is because MBE charges an arm and a leg to forward packages. BMCargo's prices allow me to continue to engage in the online consumer spending orgy like I do when I'm in the US. And makes my life here in the DR much better. I receive my packages in Santo Domingo and track them on the BMCargo website.

    I've only had one problem. A package from Amazon had nothing in it. Now the packages are opened and inspected when they arrive in Florida. They are opened again and inspected when they arrive in the DR. But when my packaged arrived at the BMCargo location in Santo Domingo there was nothing in the package. BMCargo representatives shrugged their shoulders. I contacted Amazon and they gave me a credit. Somebody ripped me off. I think someone from DGM needed a Xmas present for their novia. But that is pure speculation on my part.

    I'm going to put in a plug, based on my personal experience, for Vimenpaq. I switched to them per a recommendation at this site on account of the fact that my former courier, Logicpaq, refused to take responsibility for lost packages, make up all manner of lies, subterfuges, etc.

    Vimenpaq is a step above. The UI of the website is clean and meticulous. For a given package you can see details for every point that the item was scanned in with the exact time. You have a choice of pickup venues. I chose Sambil Mall. The online customer service, however, is mediocre. I've probably spent about RD$ 40,000 on about 60 or so packages and they have not lost one item. You can also pay with debit card.

    A missing package USPS said was delivered mysteriously "appeared" in my Aeropaq account a week later. I contacted Aeropaq today and apparently they are now doing USPS about twice a month, I believe this is a new policy. UPS delivery seems normal, 3-4 days from Amazon order date. Anyone have a favorite in this list? I'm looking for an alternate. Mailboxes Etc might be a good option, anyone have experience with them?
