China Local Shipping Charges: From the original Taobao seller to our hub at Guangzhou 广州, it is normally around RMB8-12 per 1st kg depending on the original Taobao seller's location. You can get the charges from the Taobao item page shown below. If you are buying more than one quantity or if the item is heavy, the actual charges might be higher than the charges displayed.

- Normal Rate: This is the normal delivery rate for normal goods class.
- Sensitive Rate: This rate applies to sensitive goods class. By using this rate, the chance of being taxed is reduced. If the item is taxed, your tax payable could be covered up to 50%. (on a case-by-case basis)
If your goods physical dimensions (width X length X height) in cm / 6000 exceeds your goods weight, the volumetric weight will be used as the calculation for your International Shipping Charges.
Paying Delivery Charges
After your goods arrive at our hub, we will update the exact weight of your goods in your order and you will be notified via email about the total weight and charges payable. Then, you may pay accordingly to the shipping fee. Your goods will be despatched immediately when we receive your payment / Cheque cleared. Also, you can choose to prepay your International Delivery Charges together with your goods by doing a rough estimation on the weight of your goods. We will refund the excess amount to you if you have paid extra.

We will notify you and provide the tax documents for you to pay the tax amount. However, the chance of your goods being taxed is very small, down to around 0-5%. You can also avoid this by separating large quantities of goods into several orders or use the Sensitive Rate to reduce the risk.
