    You really shouldn't have to wait 2-4 weeks, only if the lowest cost shipping is opted for, which is something like Hong Kong Little Goods Surface mail. Airmail out of Hong Kong or any major city is still pretty cheap, but its always better to say "I can ship this out for 3 RMB!" instead of "I can ship this out for 14 RMB!" which may only take 4-5 business days.

    This is how my business has thrived, I pay the little extra for faster shipping, and my clients have little to no issues.

    Yes they like it,if you provid 1-10$ things,why should they pay more for transport than the ittem.
    But make sure to give for your clients express shipping too,because some people are paying instead of waiting.

    It's where you list the item on eBay, and once the buyer purchases it you go to a wholesale site and send to the buyer's address.
