How to SAVE Shipping Cost A LOT??

Some new customers complains high shipping cost when they tried to order on our website. After communication with them, we feel that we have to write an article to explain the shipping cost. Here we would like to list a few examples and formulas to help you know how to save the shipping cost.

As we know, the shipping cost formulas for DHL door to door express services are:
(a) for gross weight below 21 Kilograms (< 21KGS), Shipping Cost = X+(Y-0.5)/0.5*Z
X=1st 0.5kgs cost (normally, 18USD - 21USD for USA, Canada and most of the EU countries)
Y=shipment gross weight (Kilogram)
Z=shipping rate on each additional 0.5kgs (normally, around 3.5 USD/0.5KGS)

(b) for gross weight above 21 Kilograms (> 21KGS), Shipping Cost = Y * Z
Y=shipment gross weight (Kilogram)
Z=shipping rate each Kilogram (normally, 5.8 USD/KGS - 6.5 USD/KGS for USA, Canada and most of the EU countries)

The shipping rates depend on destination countries / regions and also seasons (lower in slack season, higher in peak seasons).

So, from the formulas we know that, if we want to save the shipping cost, we need to
(1) Order goods with gross weight >21KGS, in such case we can save a lot of shipping cost. If you place several orders one months, you can combine some of them to save the shipping cost.
(2) If small orders, then order at least 2 kinds of products or at least NOT MOQ only.
(3) You also can contact with us to re-evaluate the shipping cost if you think it's very high. As it's calculated by system, there's a little difference on different orders, especially for the large orders.

For example, if you only order 30pcs (MOQ) of Derringer Drip Tip, then the shipping cost is 22.2USD (to USA), so the shipping cost for each Derringer Drip Tip is 22.2÷30 = 0.74USD. But if you order 500pcs, then the shipping cost is about 71.1 USD (to USA), and the shipping cost for each piece is 71.1 ÷ 500 = 0.14 USD. If 5,000pcs, then 0.09 USD/PCS.

Another example, if you only order 10pcs Subzero 24mm RDA clone, then the shipping cost is 29.2 USD (to USA), and shipping cost for each piece is 29.2 ÷ 10 = 2.92 USD. And for order of only 10pcs of Hellboy V2 RDA, the shipping cost is also the same. But if you order 10pcs Subzero 24 and 10pcs of Hellboy V2 RDA into ONE order, then the shipping cost is 36.2 USD; and each piece shipping cost is 36.2 ÷ 20 = 1.8 USD. This is all because of the 1st 0.5KGS cost for gross weight under 21KGS.

For Russian customers, we use CDEK express, they charge initial weight as 3KGS. That means, if you order 0.5KGS, then the shipping cost is the same as 3KGS.

Please just feel free to contact us by email, Skype (ID: luxfog) or WhatsAPP (+8615916889068) if you have question on the shipping cost or anything.

Do you ship in Asia? More specific In the Philippines? What's the formula when shipping your products in the Philippines, and what shipping carrier you suggest that is the cheapest and fastest? Can you give me some quotation? And lastly how do you package it? Reply to this comment

Hi Drigozee, YES. We do ship to customers from Aisa. But most of the customers from Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, South Korea and Malaysia, and so on, they use their own forwarder to avoid the possible customs tax... If you still have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact us by email or SKype: luxfog Thank you. Susie Song
