For your better understanding of how your order is charged in detail, the following example may help.
A client from France places an order with us, and he pay in USD via PayPal. Let us assume items cost: 450 CNY, domestic delivery fee: 50 CNY, service fee will be:
(450 + 50) * 0.08 = 40 CNY
The first payment in USD will be based on the current exchange rate of 1 CNY = 0.153 USD:
450 + 50 + 40 = 540 CNY / 82.62 USD
If pay via PayPal, we'll add PayPal fee of 4.4% + 0.3 USD which will be charged by PayPal. The amount you actually pay will be:
82.62 * 1.044 + 0.3 = 86.56 USD
If the order is paid via other payment methods, there will be no PayPal fee, so actually you pay 540 CNY / 82.62 USD.
For international shipping fee, which is the second payment of an order. Let's suppose weight of his package: 2000G, shipping rate for the first 500G to France by EMS is 280 CNY, for the additional 500G is 75 CNY. So, the standard EMS fee is 505 CNY.
But we offer big discount on EMS fee with 40% off when parcel weighs less than 5000g, and 45% discount off when parcel weighs over 5000g. So the final discounted EMS fee is only 303 CNY / 46.36 USD. You can refer to our online shipping calculator.
Discount EMS fee 303 CNY / 46.36 USD
If you pay via PayPal, we'll add 4.4% + 0.3 USD which will be charged by PayPal, the amount you actually pay will be:
46.36 * 1.044 + 0.3 = 48.7 USD
If the order is paid via other payment methods, there will be no PayPal fee, so actually you pay 303 CNY / 46.36 USD.
If you want to buy insurance, the additional fee will be:
(540 + 303) * 0.05 = 42.15 CNY / 6.45 USD ( this is optional )
If pay via PayPal, insurance fee will be 7.03 USD.
Total cost via PayPal without insurance fee will be 86.56 + 48.7= 135.26 USD.
Total cost via PayPal with insurance fee will be 86.56 + 48.7 + 7.03 = 142.29 USD.
Total cost via other payment methods without insurance fee will be 82.62 + 46.36 = 128.98 USD.
Total cost via other payment methods with insurance fee will be 82.62 + 46.36 + 6.45 = 135.43 USD.
