Here is an example of how your package should look like, addressed to your receiver in Kenya. It is the receiver's both names plus their unique code that you get once you have added them to your account.
Please note that this is for demonstration purposes only and you should address packages to RECEIVER'S NAME in Kenya.
This is just an example!
You will notice that you can add multiple receivers to your account and send them packages whenever you need to.
Once you have addressed your package as instructed above, go ahead and ship it to our warehouse and make sure to get a tracking number.
We recommend UPS and USPS. Please avoid FedEx at all costs.
If you choose to shop online for your loved one in Kenya, make sure to get a tracking number from the seller to our warehouse in Carrollton Texas... then add it to your account.
This is a very important step and it is required every time you ship a package.

1. Your package will arrive in our warehouse and we will scan it on arrival.
2. The moment we scan it, you are going to receive a notification that we have received your package.
The same notification now will go to your receiver in Kenya in real-time. You will never have to call us to ask about the status of your package.
3. You will receive an invoice before it arrives in Kenya, and your invoice will have all the payment methods including online payments in options.
4. We will process your package and will schedule it for shipping out the following Thursday.
5. Our weekly cut-off is on Tuesday and packages not received by the end of the day on Tuesday shall be shipped out the following week.

Our final cost is $15/kg of chargeable weight + 5% Freight insurance based on the value of your items. Freight insurance is only charged for packages worth over $200. Your items are insured against theft or damage.
This is universal worldwide in all package shipping businesses. It is the reason why every time you are shipping a package with the carrier of your choice, they always have a tape measure and a weighing scale.
They're determining the chargeable weight
Here is an example of a volumetric charge shipment.
This package would be charged at 9.9kg, not 5kg
In this example, this package would be charged based on the volumetric weight, not the actual weight.
This package would be charged based on actual weight because the actual weight is higher than the volumetric weight. Here is an example of the calculations.
