what item is it? if its big and heavey i can understand the shipping costs.
the only thing ive been reseacrhing with dhgate lately are headphones and shipping for me starts at about $30 and goes up by 15%-ish for each added item.
try searching for that same item with different sellers, even if there are none now, try next week as different sellers change what they are selling etc.
Yes but most serious buyers only order small amounts for product samples before they buy bulk. I know that I always get smaples before sending large orders there way. I want to make sure I know exactly what I am getting. Quality is one of my companies standards.
