    Its all based on the Chinese currency and how they keep it so low compared to other countries, also in China and Hong Kong they can send things for much cheaper as the majority of Chinas business is Export, they have special rates.

    I always wondered the same thing, If you are a big time seller in Australia or USA you do get postage discounts, but that is because you are on a contract to send say 10000+ parcels a year. The more you send the cheaper your postage gets. Also if you are a top rated seller your final valuation fee gets lower etc etc

    Just because people in China sell for so low doesn't mean that you can't sell the same item for more expensive, a lot of people hate waiting the 10-20 working days that it takes most of the time to receive something from China when they use Honk Kong post or China Post.
