  • The actual stock of goods on 1688 fluctuates due to real-time orders and offline sales, but the lack of timely updating of stock information by suppliers can lead to discrepancies in the actual stock of goods. As a result, there will be a situation where you have placed an order but the goods cannot be shipped due to out of stock. We recommend that you check with the suppliers for availability before placing your order.

  • The 1688 product detail page can estimate the shipping cost within China by entering the number of items and the shipping destination, but this is the initial setting, and due to the variability of each order, the actual shipping cost can not be completely correct trial calculation.

    A. Usually it is due to the increase in the number of items and weight, so the shipping cost increases.

    B. Attention! It may happen that the goods were originally light in weight and small in size, but due to the large number of goods, it was judged as a large weight parcel. At this time, please pay attention to whether the shipping cost is reasonable, if you think the shipping cost is too expensive, please contact the supplier to modify the shipping cost.

  • Please note when you use 1688 international shipping to send goods directly to Korea or Japan! If we only calculate the weight, for shipping light weight but large volume goods there will be a problem. So in this case we will calculate the shipping cost according to the volume weight, which is the weight after volume conversion.

    However, when estimating, we are calculating the pure weight shipping cost of the goods first because we do not have the physical object to know the packaging or volume of the goods. When the actual shipment is made, if the volume weight needs to be used for calculation, the shipping fee will be 2 to 3 times of the pure weight billing. Therefore, please pay attention to the international shipping price for light and bulky goods.
