We're in International business. Sometimes both of us hope the International shipping is just as simple as a pipe, we push boxes in one end, and you'll receive at the other end.
But the reality is much more complicated. Sometimes you may consider a lot before choosing a suitable shipping method, it includes shipping price, delivery time, weight limit, limited items, customs duties, parcels forced return back,etc. Have no idea how to choose a shipping method? No worries please, we're here for you.
We offer a variety of international shipping methods:

EMS is the highly recommended shipping method for its fast, safe and reliable advantage. You can get a discount up to 40% off official EMS shipping rates. It usually takes 5-7 working days to reach most countries in Asia, Europe and America, 10-15 working days to Russia. During holidays, the delivery time will be longer than usual, and it differs from country to country.
Eyoubao is a good choice for small parcels which is less than 2kg (4.41 lbs). It is the cheapest shipping method for small parcels and it is fast as EMS usually. Most times it takes about 3-20 days for delivery.
Singapore Airmail is the second cheap shipping method for small parcels. It also has weight limit of 2kg (4.41 lbs), and the sum of length, width and height cannot exceed 90 cm. But the delivering time is a little longer, usually 15-40 days to arrive at the destination. The parcel returning process (returned from the overseas) also takes a long time, sometimes even one year long.
HK DHL in most times is more expensive than EMS, but faster and more stable. It usually takes about 3-7 days to deliver. If you have some important items to ship or you want to receive the parcels before a clearly specified time, DHL is a good choice.
Beijing DHL is even faster than HongKong DHL, however also expensive than HongKong DHL. If you are very urgent to receive the parcel and you don't care about money then you can try with Beijing DHL. The delivery time is about 2-5 days.
Attention please: DHL has volumetric weight, which means if the volumetric weight is heavier than real weight, DHL will charge based on the heavier one. For example, you have a parcel which real weight is 6kg (12.23 lbs) but the volumetric is 9.5kg (20.94 lbs), DHL will charge you as 9.5kg (20.94 lbs). Here is the volumetric weight calculation formula: Length * Width * Height / 5000.
Chinese AIR is slower and cheaper than Chinese EMS. If you cannot use Singapore Airmail as the weight is more than 2kg (4.41 lbs), and you want a cheaper shipping then you can choose Chinese AIR. You may ask how about the speed? Um... it's hard to say. Before the detailed discuss, this picture will be help a lot.
As you can see from the picture, the Shipment & Delivery steps are stable, but Enqueue time is unknown.
SAL means Surface Air Lifted. Headache? You can try to read it as: Sea, Air, and Lands, then it's easy to understand.
Aramex is fast, and shipping fee is also lower than EMS and DHL to middle east countries. But the security checking is very strict, some countries import needs a series of documents. You can consult us in advance if you want to have a try.
