Hey, if anyone could help me out, I would appreciate it.

I have found several items on DHgate that I wanted to purchase only to find out that the shipping is outrageous for every seller I have tried to buy from. I was going to buy 10 bluetooth headsets for around $150 USD and the lowest shipping option was something like $111. Has anyone else noticed this? Is it normal for shipping overseas to be that high? And if so, how do you make a profit with resale when you are spending hundreds of dollars in shipping?

That is a high shipping price. Of course some sellers charge higher shipping prices than others. I have a supplier off of DHgate that ships me the fake iPods for $30 to the US. International shipping off DHgate isn't worth it unless you order several. Have you tried another seller on DHgate?

Is that 1 fake ipod shipped to you for $30 or a number of them for $30

thanks for the response. I have tried buying multiple items and the shipping price goes up to 500 dollars +++++++++++. Could you point me towards the sellers you have dealt with? thanks again

I agree their shipping is way too high. Was going to buy a Lacoste shirt $10 dollars and their shipping for 1 shirt was $60. That's ridiculous.

It seems like the sellers are upping their shipping price to dodge fees (like Ebay sellers do). You aren't going to find a Lacoste shirt for $10. The actual shipping is probably about $25 so that makes the shirt $45 which is obviously pretty high (and still maybe not authentic).

Yea that is pretty high for shipping, however you could always message the supplier for a better rate :) You never know till you ask! Try asking them why their shipping is that price and what they can do about it for your business. Sometimes they charge shipping per item as well so you might want to get a quote from them to ship it to you all together.

if it's clothes it's most likely fake. just look at the prices and if they're too good to be true they're probably fake.

Hi. I have ordered (drop ship) several mp4players and the shipping fee have been about $24 to US and $32 to Europe. The lowest shipping fee is for 0.5 kg and that price is reasonable.

If you visit MKenterprise you will see that they have more expensive shipping to Europe.

Everything I received from DHgate is good quality.

I use them all the time and do not usually have problems. Sometimes the parcel is delayed being shipped (as they are brokers and run the site like eBay) but find if you email them they are very helpful
