Courier shipping from China is TOO EXPENSIVE!?

Courier Shipping from China

Many sellers are scared away from the whole importing from China process because they think that shipping costs are too expensive. I recently had a blog comment from Michael, which perfectly illustrates this common frustration:

Hi Andrew,

I just got a quick online quote from FedEx for collecting these 5 boxes from the factory address and delivering at my home address and it was $1880 USD! Yikes.

If I look on AliExpress for the same item, I can order 1pc for $125 delivered from a reseller.

I know this is all part of the learning curve, but why is shipping 5 boxes so expensive? Is it because they are relatively large, but light in weight?

Is the only way to make this cost-effective simply to order more units? Enough for a few pallets? Advice is greatly appreciated.

Michael

I get comments and questions like this one all the time, so let’s try to debunk the expensive shipping myth and find out exactly why Michael’s shipping quote was so high.

My 2018 Xmas present to you: £300!

December 13, 2018 by Andrew Minalto - 66 Comments

Welcome back!

We’re just ten short days away from Christmas, and it’s that time of the year when I say a big THANK YOU to all my blog readers, social followers, and, of course, my loyal customers. Unfortunately, I can’t send a gift to each and every one of you, but I can create a contest to reward ten of you with a £25 Amazon gift card and one of you with a £50 Amazon gift card!

This contest is very straightforward. All you have to do is comment below this post with a suggestion for a topic I should cover on my blog or Facebook page in 2019! It can be anything related to Amazon FBA business, importing, branding, product research, etc. The more specific the question, the better!

To give you an idea of what I’m looking for, here are a few examples:

  • Do I need a limited company to start selling on Amazon?
  • What is the best way to ship a 20kg package from China?
  • Is it worth it to start selling on Amazon US if you live in the UK?
  • How do I make sure my product quality is up to standard?
  • How many samples do I need to buy from Chinese suppliers?
  • What tools are best for Amazon product research?
  • Why do we need AUTO PPC campaigns?
  • Etc.
