It’s good for the Chinese company to know that you are a serious company though who expect to order larger quantities later.

They provide large qty discounts for small shippers while getting to your in less than a week many times. 5staramazon answered 5 years ago You must login to post comments 0 0 no difference. i paid no vat or any duty for samples. They usualy state that’s a sample and the value is $0.01.
