The Advantages and Disadvantages of International Post

An international post  is the package that’s within 2 kg through airmail service send abroad. The Length, Width and Height are less than 90 cm, and the longest side is no more than 60 cm. For the B2C sellers on eBay, Amazon, Dhgate etc., who sell electronics, accessories, handicraft,etc.,they like to send their goods by post service.

The most popular post channels are as follows:China Post, Singpost, Hong Kong Post, TNT Post, and Royal Mail, etc.

However, as an old saying goes, every coin has two sides. Following are some advantages and disadvantages of the post service:

Advantages:

1) The postage is low. Compared with other shipping method like EMS, DHL, UPS, Fedex, TNT etc., the international parcel services have absolute price advantage. The postage may be half less than by express service.

2)Simplicity. It is convenient to deliver goods by post service. And there is no first weight and additional weight for post to calculate the shipping fee.

3) Globalization. Products can be delivered to clients almost any country or region. The post service can reach to anywhere with post office.

4) Except for some prohibited goods, all the small products can be delivered by post.

Disadvantages:

1) It is slow for the information to be displayed and be tracked online. And always the exact location of the goods could be unknown.

2) There is always a delay for post to deliver the goods. If the customer is lucky, he can get the goods in 5-7 day. But usually it takes 15- 30 days to get the package. For some remote countries and regions, it even gets longer.

3) Sometimes, the package may be returned or missing during transit. And the post company do not compensate for loss.

Will my privacy be leaked out if I send you the Visa authorization?

Visa payment brings a lot of convenience for online buyers and sellers. Every coin has two sides. When people are enjoying themselves during online shopping, the sellers are facing the risk of visa payment. In order to confirm the authenticity of the transaction and ensure the deal is safe for you, buyers who pay over $150 through visa at one time need to be asked to provide some documents.

Usually the documents include:

1. The scan of handwritten letter of authorization with signature “My full name is XXXX. The purchase on the order TXXXXX, XXXUSD dollars, Transaction Date xxxxx from my Visa card XXXXX is authorized.
2. The scanning copy of your passport. (the page with your name and photo on it)
3. The scanning copy of the Visa card (front and back) or bill with billing address

This is just a procedure to ensure the deal, your information will be kept confidential and will never be leaked out.

If you are worried about the safety, you could do as the below:

1 2 3 5

If you do not want to provide these info to anyone, please kindly change your payment method to paypal or western union or T/T.

Then we will deliver your parcel ASAP. If you have some better suggestions, please feel free to discuss with me at my facebook.

How To Save Shipping Cost?

We are happy that can have chances to service our customers and sometimes get a question from our customers for “How to save shipping cost?”
And we would like to show some methods to you right now.

1.Buy more products together in one time.

Below is an example of item no.T-PCA-1243 (Unit Price:16.26USD )screenshot which shows the price for 1 PCS only.
After calculating,Unit price is 23.06USD with Singpost shipping cost.

1 PCS

 

Below is screenshot that shows if you buy more pcs, You can buy mix items as almost of our products are without watermark.
Or you can buy together with  your friends.
After calculating,Unit price is17.98USD with DHL shipping cost.

50 PCS

2.Make total weight over 21.00KG
21kg is regarded as big cargo by DHL,UPS system, and the price for each KG will be lower than that of small cargo (less than 21kg).

Below is a screenshot that shows if shipment over 21KG,After calculating, Unit Price is only 17.19USD with UPS shipping cost.

21KG

 

Below is a screenshot for 20KG:

20KG

According to above data, we can know that buy more products  and make total weight over 21KG can save your shipping cost.

 

3.Remove packaging.

When CMB weight is bigger than product weight, We can remove package for you to make CMB smaller.
And for those packages, we will send them together with products and then you can pack product by yourself.

4.Use Fedex

For some countries, Fedex Shipping cost will be more cheaper than others ways (DHL,UPS,EMS,etc)when you shipment is big enough.
But it takes more time,around 4-7 Days.

Product link of above item: http://www.trait-tech.com/product/T-PCA-1243/

Note: For DHL/UPS/Fedex/TNT they calculate shipping cost by weight (CBM Weight and Product weight)
1.When Product weight is bigger than CBM weight,then shipping cost  is calculated by Product weight
2.When CBM Weight is bigger than Product weight,then shipping cost is calculated by CBM weight.

For EMS, they only calculate by Product weight. but can not be over 30KG per shipment.
