I've been wondering how it's possible for Chinese eBay sellers to offer free shipping on items that cost less than it would cost me *just* to ship it. Now that I know, I'm pretty upset...
The nutshell version:
More details here:
This is like a subsidy, in that it increases trade in only one direction, but it was instituted by OUR postal service - and eBay.
Hello, China - where's the low-cost shipping solution for US and AU merchants? Is it any wonder that USPS is losing money hand over fist? What are USA merchants supposed to do when all their customers start buying online direct from Hong Kong-?!

Yeah, well wait until you receive a product that is DOA as mine was. Sure, they promise free returns after you pay $30 for non-discounted return shipping!! I lost half the value of the purchase just to return it and will probably need to wait 2 months for final resolution.
Glad we taxpayers can subsidize Chinese knock off merchants so well.

I don't think Chinese post is not trustable. I have ordered a USB 2.0 Enough Memory Stick Flash Pen Drive on 2013-11-20 and never received the item. I've contacted the seller and he told me don't worry I will resend another one which I never received too.I have checked with the Canadian Postal Services and they told me that they are receiving many complaints regarding shipments made from China.They told me "Are you sure that your seller has shipped your item?". I am not sure and this is a very disappointing situation.I don't believe Chinese sellers anymore.They cashed your money without taking care of the shipment. How can I trust a seller telling me that he has shipped twice the item and none received that's a real joke.Be aware when you order from China often it's a drop shipment from an american seller but the shipment (if there is any) is between the hands of a Chinsese seller in Hong-Kong or other places in China.Paypal should extend to 60 days where it is possible to open a dispute........Check the following link it's unbelievable.
