Prohibited Items (but not limited) for International Shipping,

The following items (but not limited) might only could ship with specific logistic lines,
Logistic company charges are based on the actual weight and volumetric weight, whichever is bigger will be used to calculate.
Actual weight refers to the actual weight of the item after packing.
Volumetric weight refers to the overall size of a parcel and is measured in volumetric kilograms. Volumetric weight can be calculated by multiplying the length, width, and height of a parcel (in cm) and dividing that figure by 5000 (some carriers use a divisor of 6000/7000 and etc).
Tips for reducing the shipping cost
1)Get rid of the original packing, for example, if you buy a pair of shoes, you could get rid of the shoebox which will save a lot for volumetric weight.
2)The shipping cost is normally charged by every 0.5KG. So if you buy a product that is only 0.1KG then you might consider buying 2-3 PCS per time which will not add more shipping cost for your order.
3) Choose the economic shipping method, which is usually the cheapest method via sea/train transportation. However, it is slow and has a minimum weight requirement (12KG-21KG) for the package.
