What is the typical shipping cost for electronics purchased from Chinese websites?

Asked a year ago

Hey guys. I've been browsing this Chinese website I like, but I can't seem to find the shipping information. More precisely, I am thinking about buying a phone, so I'd like to know how much they may charge me for shipping. Does anybody know how shipping is calculated?

The shipping cost of an item from a Chinese website will defer depending on a few factors which include:

  • The weight and dimensions of the item
  • Where it's being shipped from
  • Where it's being shipped to
  • The shipping method used

Many online Chinese stores will offer free shipping for smaller items when you make use of standard shipping.

Larger items or express shipping generally cost more. Shipping costs will vary and can be anywhere between USD 20 to over USD 100.

If you are unsure about shipping costs, it is usually shown before you pay for your basket.
