China Post Shipping Costs

China Post Shipping Costs

Postby HintMan » Sun Oct 28, 2007 8:24 pm

Are there any websites or anything that would list how much it would cost to send a package from Shanghai to the U.S.?

Or if any of you guys have any experience with it it would be appreciated. I have a package of about 17 kilos that I plan on shipping either by the slow boat or the middle option. Any idea of what this would cost?

Have sent a few home but nothing that heavy. Slowboat is cheaper but takes forever. And don't seal the package before you take it to the post office. They like to look through and see what goodies you are sending outside China. One package that I had my wife post for me had newspaper as space filler. They removed it and replaced it with the foam chunks they had lying around. I had a really good laugh on that one...
Things are more like they are now than they have ever been.
