Hi, i am a member in Australia, and i find that the shipping cost when buying from America and China cuts alot of my margin away when i onsell the product. What is the best way to minimise my shipping cost when dealing with overseas suppliers?

You can take a look at mail forwarding companies to reduce costs by a small fraction, usually around 10-15%, but the only way to make mass savings is to buy in serious bulk, and being in Oz that would mean by the container load.
