I bet there are million people have thought about this business mode: import good products from China and sell to different market places in US.
Although it’s easy to find product suppliers on Alibaba, still a lot of people give up this business plan, because they don’t know methods and cost for shipping products from China to US.
The truth is over 90% product suppliers on Alibaba are not professional on all shipping methods, so they are more likely to over charge on shipping cost.
Or many of them prefer you use own freight forwarder to pick up cargo at their warehouse or at the port of China.
That sounds quite discouraging for people who are new to import from China.
So, I wrote this article to help you understand the estimated cost for using 7 main shipping solutions from China to US. Thus you can do the math by yourself, to decide if a product is worthy to import, or which shipping solution is most cost-effective.
