Shop & Ship Chinese mailbox, so what can we do now?

Posted by Mark

Aramex Shop & Ship have now set up Chinese mailboxes for all their customers which sounds great but what exactly can we get from China and where do we order it from?

The first thing that comes into my mind is buying stuff from Hong Kong sellers on eBay. A lot of times when I am looking for Tamiya parts and cars on eBay, the sellers with the good stuff are based in Hong Kong. Another thing I can think of but still hobby related is websites like HobbyKing.com who have most of their stock based in Hong Kong as well. You can now order stuff from there HongKong warehouse and have them ship the items by EMS to your Chinese mailbox.

Does anyone have any other ideas? Did you know there is a Chinese Amazon?

Note: If the Chinese mailbox hasn’t shown up in your shopandship.com page be patient, they’re currently in the process of generating accounts for all their clients in all 26 Shop & Ship countries.

    just a reminder that the limit is US 600 dollars; not 2,500 like the US.

    ships from china. may look sketchy, but ive used it a couple times. it just takes 3 weeks to deliver, so i guess a chinease sns would speed things up

      I brought wireless remote controller and a set of glass cloth for my lenses from them, not a bad deal for the price. Delivery was alright too, took around 2 regular mail from Hong Kong to Toronto though, including going through customs.

    i just arrived in China last night for business … send me all your money and i’ll take care of ya :) j/k … btw .. the weather in Beijing is amazing!! Sorry Kuwait

    maybe we should learn Mandarin, it seems that future wealth will be concentrated in China in the near future.

    The first thing that comes to mind is that Apple Laptops ship from Hong Kong. Other than that, nothing that useful to me.

  7. Teko says:

    It may not seem that way, but half the female online shopping population of kuwait, buys from Chinese retailers, this? Just made things all the more easier.
    I want a Japanese mailbox :<

    The thing is China is good for accessories but I don’t think electronics, I’ve been searching for a good electronic sites but they sell chinease products like iPad 8 inch for $100 :s anyone know of a good site with genuine worldwide products sold in china?

  9. FYI says:

    BTW Mark did you know that you get a 10% discount by paying online using a mastercard? how come they didn’t send me any email about this promotion? I always saw a mastercard sign on the website but never read the deal.

  10. Ramez says:

    thats good because a lot of items at ebay are located in China, so do there are a lot of Chinese websites

  11. moayad says:

    Don’t most sellers from China and Honk Kong on eBay ship internationally anyway?

    • Mark says:

      yes but if they ship to kuwait they use EMS and takes like 20 days, if they ship to your US mailbox it also takes long plus they charge like $40 and shit. So having them ship to china is a cheaper and faster process.

  12. Albert says:

    Dhgate.com is the best. Check it.

  13. Kuwait says:

    Is this correct?

    Shipping to Kuwait (from anywhere through SnS)
    1KG = 5.800 KD
    2KG = 11.100 KD
    3KG = 16.400 KD

    ??

    MOST of the stuff I buy from ebay that’s shipped from China/HK is tiny and of hardly any weight. These prices would burn a hole in my wallet…

    But if I’m buying something that’s of reasonable size and EMS shipping straight to Kuwait is nearly equal to EMS shipping within China + SnS to Kuwait, then I would definitely consider it.

    • Kuwait says:

      Plus never have I encountered any customs issue in Kuwait while using EMS from China (don’t think that will be the case with Sns now). And all packages arrive at Kaifan, and touchwood I have a 100% success rate so far with EMS. I do NOT wait for the package to be delivered to my office PO or wait for any call from Kaifan – I just straight head over there within 4-5 days after its left China.

    Did aramex change the US mailbox address lately?

  16. Mohammad says:

    Yes, they did change the street name.

    • John says:

      Wackoo,
      Can you let me know what is the procedure to collect the items ordered from aliexpress and shipped by standard mail? I’ve been waiting many weeks, nothing was delivered to my Salmiya’s p.o.box.

      Thanks,
      John

    I shopped on DHgate.com and i think the site is fairly competent. You get all sorts of stuff in there.
