Good morning Fellow learned and experienced businessmen. A few weeks ago I started my research on how to import few products from china and i decided i would do it in Aliexpress.com because they have a nice buyer protection policy, variety of products and at a very competitive price. Am almost done with the research but I am not happy with the shipping prices from China especially for the fastest companies such as DHL and EMS. some almost half the price of the product am about to order. The price for cheaper shippers is good but the time they take to deliver is too long. They say 15 to 60 days and I know thats a way of telling me that it will take 60 days indirectly.

If there is anybody out there who has some useful advice on how we can do it Please help.

Even I get tired of repeating the same thing over and over again. How many times have I warned pple to avoid DHL unless it's an urgent or highly valued product?

I recently bought a few items there (AliExpress) and chose EMS/China Post as my shipping method. The syipulated time was 7-21 days; I collected my items at City Square (Haile Selassie) in 10days.

Got other stuff from Uncle Sam's, opted for ship (meli) as air was almost twice the purchase price. The ship is taking 8wks, docking some time next month. I'm still waiting.

Watu hununua gari na inachukua 4-8wks boss. So 60days is too short a time to be worried over. Kazi kwako.

Let's just say the duration of shipping never worries me. After all with escrow protection, I can't really lose my money. I always go for the cheapest shipping option, mostly EMS, China Post, Sweden Post, Hong King Post, Singapore Post, etc. I've used DHL only twice, once for an item I needed urgently and once for a delicate/fragile item that I didn't trust anyone else to handle.

Which payment method do you use? Visa/Paypal or mastercard?
