It's just an estimation based on the previous orders data, we like to call it ” Safe Zone”
We recommended importing the products with the estimation shipping cost on them to stay at the "Safe Zone". In this case, your profit margin and the estimation shipping cost should cover the whole process.
Please note that you can also do your own weight estimation.
It's important to note that it's easy to estimate general small items like clothes, shoes,phone cases,etc.
What if I want to target all the countries on the list?
The shipping cost difference among all the countries is just a couple of dollars so just make sure to cover those $3-$4 with your profit margin.
Do I have to pay for this estimated shipping cost when paying for the orders?
No, you will not pay for this estimation shipping cost because it’s just an estimation ( not fully accurate). Once the item arrives at our warehouse, we will determine the final weight and charge you based on the real weight.
You will first pay for the original product cost ( Taobao cost), and then once we receive the item at our warehouse, you will pay for the real shipping cost based on the item real weight.
Do I have to do these steps for every time I get an order?
No, If you keep selling the same product continuously AKA: "winning product" we will set a common fixed weight for this product based on the data of your previous orders.
This process will help you to scale faster so you don't have to worry about the second payment ( shipping payment).
Also, keep in mind that If you keep selling the same item or similar items then the shipping cost will never change.
