A Bot to Answer All Your Questions about Taobao, Weidian and Shopping from China

Why is shipping more sometimes more expensive per kilogram?

Shipping more is usually cheaper, but under certain circumstances it can be more expensive. That's due to the segmentation (shipping brackets) works in the agents' billing model:

  • 4000g to USA w/ EMS: $121,64 = $30,41/kg
  • 4001g to USA w/ EMS: $133,98 = $33,49

As you can see this one single gram (the weight of a paper clip) costs you $12 in this scenario.

You can use our shipping calculator to verify these results yourself.

It's important to know this, because there's actually something you can do about it?
