Comment on Shipping From China Ultimate Guide: Method,Cost and Time by Eric.
you don’t have to use the 1688 agent’s shipping service, you can find your own shipping agent.

If you are just starting to buy products from Chinese domestic websites, I suggest you use Taobao agents or 1688 agents directly, you will avoid a lot of trouble.
I have compared some Taobao agents here.
Some EMS solutions are not calculated by volume weight.
Some air mail solutions such as China Post, Belgium Post, also do not calculate the volume weight.
Or you can use sea shipping to save the shipping cost.
If you use your own shipping agent, most buying agents will not provide export documentation because they are not the ones exporting.
If you have a good relationship with your shipping agent, you can transfer the money to them and let him help you pay the buying agent.
Or you can try to ask more buying agents, some small ones may be willing to do so.

hi, If you buy through an agent, the seller will send the order to the agent’s warehouse, and then you will have the agent send the goods to you.
Taobao requires you to enter your cell phone number to register, I know you don’t like it, me either, but that’s their rule.
Yes, it takes at least 1-2 months.
this is the tracking number you return to the seller.
