    Hi,

    I got my own product to sell on the internet, but I can't do it internationaly since I can't ship for cheap. Do you know any way to do it?

    Bulk shipping reduces costs and/or make your product in China and ship from there. Standard shipping costs close to nothing there, although it also takes an eternity. Otherwise you need to pay the fees of your local postal service or the couriers, which are present in your country. I don't think that you can override this.

    If there would be a way for cheap international shipping in well-developed countries, everyone would be doing it already. :)

    It's always a debate, which one is better. If you include the shipping cost in the price of your product, so you can offer free shipping along with a more expensive product or if you sell your product cheaper and add the shipping cost separately. If you sell on an auction type site, sometimes shipping is excluded from seller fees, so that's another thing to consider, when you price your product.

    First, thanks for Your reply! Low cost means 15-20$/item to me, like on Ebay or something. If I want to send a package in my country, to a city 200km far it costs like 10$... You can imagine the international costs. Do you know any carriers, working with normal prices, if we send 20-30 packages/day?

    The package size is about 30*30*10 and under 1kg. Unfortunately, we don't have Hermes here. BTW any other shipping company would be good if they can provide 15-20$ shipping intertanionally

    $15-20 per item is not really low, i thought you meant lower than that, that can be achieved. Just check couriers like DPD, DHL, USPS, Fedex, GLS and compare their prices. For instance i know for a fact that DPD is one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest in EU. If you stay inside the EU with your shipping, you don't have to deal with customs either.

    I checked them, but the prices was way higher. Maybe I can gt lower prices after I contact them about bulk shipping.
