Share This Post With Friends! DealExtreme Warehouse

Chinese webshops are doing very well, several chinese webshops invested in a warehouse abroad China. An additional option now is the opportunity to ship your desired product from a warehouse close by like Europe, United States or Australia. The main reason is that they want to offer a shipping method that is supposed to be quicker. Average shipping time from a china warehouse is 3 to 4 weeks before your product arrives. Although there are some cases were we received our products within a week! The following websites offer abroad warehouse shipping (different than China):

Abroad warehouses

Advantages:

The biggest advantages off these warehouses is definitely the shipping time. Your product can be delivered within 3 to 5 days! Another advantages is that your product is already through customs. This means that you don’t have to pay the clearance cost, mostly above a set amount, which can be an unexpected burden sometimes. And besides this it also save time since customs don’t have to check it again!

Disadvantages:

Product prices from other warehouses are often higher than “traditional” shopping from China. Another disadvantages is that only a selection of products are  in stock in an abroad warehouse and you cannot buy the entire product range given on their site. Mainly the best selling/popular products and smaller products are stocked in the local warehouses. With maybe as result that still a part of your order has to be shipped from China. 

Overall:

Although there a some benefits, If you are buying a product less than 25 dollar and you can be patient, still buy from a china warehouse because it is much cheaper. If you need the product as fast a possible, buy from the local warehouses. It will take 3-5 days before you will get the product delivered. Wondering how a chinese warehouse looks like?
