I source something from China and here is the problem I faced.
The shipping cost through EMS almost nearly the price what I sourced.
I just start and trying sourcing and less familiar with the way of shipping.
Any suggestions for those who know how to reduce shipping cost besides using EMS when sourcing from China which is safe?
Thanks in advance those willing to advice me! :)

Try DHL or FedEx if less than 1kg is quite reasonable 5 or 6 days ex China

I'm just starting out trying to import lingere from China, & the shipping costs are ridiculously high. Does anyone know of a way to ship goods cheaper from China? Alot of the suppliers don't seem willing to use FedEx or DHL? Any ideas??

Then they are not real suppliers.They are making money off your shipping.Just tell them you have your own contract with your own shippers.Just set up your own business contract with fed x or dhl
If they dont like it look for another company to deal with.

I don't think that's necessary making negative comments...
