Orders on aleyagarden.com site. Calculate your transport cost : Envelope, Small Parcel Air or EMS

1- Go to http://www.thailandpost.co.th/index.php?page=rate_result&country_code=AU&weight=3000&language=en

If you are not on the ENGLISH page click on the small round British flag on the upper left :



2- Enter the weight ( Hoya : 45 gr per cut, 105 gr per rooted plant or small rooted, Philodendron 220 gr  ) and see the result in thb currency; You will select INTERNATIONAL SMALL PARCEL AIR ( from 1 to 3 weeks :   2 weeks on average ) the maximum weight is 2000 grams. Or EMS World Package ( 1 week on average ) . The other EMS types are not suitable for plants.




 The picture above shows a 1006 thb fee for sending 2000 grams to Germany

3- In the column " Addon Services " shown above ( the last column to the right ) click on the + sign ( it is to the right of the Fee ) and add as shown below the registration cost for Int'l Small Packet Air. If instead of Int'l Small Packet Air you want EMS you don't need to add a registration cost : you don't need to click on the + shown above.

   The picture above shows a 65 thb fee for the registration of an Int'l Small Packet Air ( small parcel air )

4- to the fees add 510 thb for the phytosanitary certificate. So for instance sending 2000 gr to Germany by small parcel air would cost 1006 + 65 + 510 = 1581 thb

 In order to evaluate this amount in an other currency such as $US,  google " 1 $ to thb " as on the picture below :
The picture above shows the conversion of $US to thb ( Thai Baht ).

5- if sending by ENVELOPE registered, without a phyto. certificate  2 to 3 non rooted Hoya cuts, the transport cost is the thb conversion of 7 $US.

6- We accept paypal payments only for small amounts transferred. These must be non refundable personal payments in thb net of all charges ( we don't accept payments for goods and services, these payments are refundable ) : all fees including the hidden conversion fee to thb are on the sender. Please see the pictures below :



The pictures above show a Paypal personal payment with all fees paid by the sender. These fees include the hidden cost of currency conversion at Paypal's rate..

  2. Courier services startup is a wonderful idea, especially when everyone knows that people throughout the globe are locked in their houses due to pandemics. pickup and delivery software operates as an intermediary between vendors and clients
