I need advice for international shipping. So, currently I’m asking some of my chinese suppliers to send me samples and some of them are asking for my express account? I do not have a DHL Express account set up yet, but I have been reading around and it seems that it’s actually quite difficult to set one up as someone who is just starting in this type of business. Can anyone give me advice on what to do?
It seems as though i need to get my business registered. This is my first time starting a private label and i sort of just created a pseudo business name to test the waters and see if this is what i want to get into. Does everyone who wants to do private labeling have to get their business registered.
In that case, DHL may verify if the business is registered or not. My suppliars told me that the pricing depends in the weight and dimension you are going to order and the shipping company you are using. Probably fedex is cheaper for big orders and DHL might be for small orders or vice versa.
I’d go with comments; that’s what most us do.
For sample products, get the supplier to send the samples to you on their express shipping accounts (DHL, USP, FedEx, etc.) and bill you for it. Believe me it is a lot cheaper, less stressful, and far more convenient that way.
