Should be good news for US sellers. Trump is a major factor in this.

Only good news for US sellers who sell Chinese made goods,but your price after importing could still be higher than Chinese sellers,adjusted for shipping.

Some Chinese sellers ship their goods to a place in California in large quantities,kind of like AMZN FBA.
For smaller order,there are so many Chinese travelling back and forth from China to USA,they bring them in suitcase.
I bought a wall clock shipped from CA,9.99 including shipping.

I bet you every country in the world outside USA,want to do business with China.
Brazil and Argentina want to sell more soybeans,Canada more wheat,Germany more machineries,France more luxury goods.

It's a freaken start. The more of them that can't sell, the better. It's not about competition. I don't compete against China. BUT, they flood the market with their cheap garbage, and dilute the searches and the brand and market. And that's not even getting into counterfeits. The harder it is for The chinese sellers, THE BETTER.

Because most of them are LEGAL? I focus on my one segment. That's more than enough for me at the moment. I'm only one man, and scammers are 1000's.


The lady doth protest too much, methinks. You have a weird thing for counterfeiters? In case you didn't know, this forum is very against it. Hence you can't even type the word ⊗⊗⊗⊗.

I really don't think you understand, just how much China, as well as a lot of Europe, charges in tariffs for American goods. You really have zero clue. Trump is the only president to have the balls, to say screw you to Canada and China and Mexico, and many others, that have completely abused us in trade. And as far as China. They are literally out to destroy us and become a main world super power. Of course those other countries you mention want to sell to China. It would only help them, rather than hurt them. Trade with China, can only hurt us in the long run. Short term gains, and destruction for the next generation. I don't care what every other country wants.

I am sorry you have no clue what the long term impact would be.
Trump is a businessman and not a worldclass politician,he has entered into the arena of world politics which is above his level.
It takes many years to become a world class politician,would you like your dental assistant perform root canal on your teeth?
Would you let a nurse treat you for major illness?
would you like your plumber design a new kitchen?
Cant you tell he is getting desperate?you can only raise tariff to 100%
BTW,Deustche bank has a copy of his tax return and will be or has been asked to turn it in.
George Bush is a career politician ,Clinton is a born politician,name a few more,Nixon,Bob Dole,Gringrich .

exchange rate between us dollar and Chinese dollar could reach 1:7.
US domestic shipping with tracking on Ebay would be 2.80 for a 2 ounce package.then there is Ebay 10% FVF,so the seller should charge $3.10 for shipping!
$3.10 would be 21 dollars,it does not take 21 Chinese dollar to ship a 2 ounce package.
They can still sell an item for 99 cents plus 3.10 shipping and make money.
the difference of buying from a US seller vs a Chinese seller would be the time it takes to receive the package.

So you are a Trump backer? A couple of questions, would you let your 18 year old dollar work for Trump? Your wife, you know he is on tape saying it is pretty easy, you just grab their "****" lol. Thank God you are not from a "$h*thole Country"

LOL oh, the world class multi billion real estate mogul, doesn't have a clue, but YOU do... yeah. ok.

And I'm sorry, are you trying to claim that politicians know what they are doing? Have you SEEN what they've done? You're seriously putting them on the same pedestal as doctors and dentists? That's INSANE. If they knew what they were doing, we wouldn't be in this mess. At least a doctor, can actually diagnosis and fix something. What have THEY fixed so far? Yeah, all those career politicians that never held a job their entire lives. They've done suuuuuch a great job so far.

LOL oh god. I can tell the type of person you are, to use the grabbing qoute, from a private convo, from 15 years ago, where he said women LET HIM grab them. Is he wrong????? You sure put women on a high pedestal, if you think they don't let rich powerful men grab them. He never said " you can grab them". He used the exact words " they LET YOU grab them". You really can't see the difference, can you?

I'm sure you'd be totally ok if the entire world, heard every single thing you've ever said, in private or otherwise. RIGHT? Never said anything crude or disgusting or boreish? Right???? Might as well hear every politicians private words. I'm sure none of them have ever said anything wrong. Ever. Trump talks, a lot, all the time. Other politicians hide everything they think. But you think that makes them better? I rather have an honest asshole as president, than someone that hides everything they think. The devil you know.....

And if you really want to claim those places aren't ****hole countries, you're a fool.

Yeah, I'd let anyone work for Trump, because thus far, the claims have been baseless, and I'd trust my wife and daughter to not be morons. I didn't vote for the man, and I've literally only voted republican ONCE in my entire life. But people like you, going after him, with such asinine attacks, makes me defend him. You're making people, that wouldn't in a million years, vote for Trump, Defend Trump. Do you have any idea how that feels?

did I say I know how to be a worldclass politician?
I am saying Trump spent his years as a businssman,not really a good one either,we shall find out when we read his income tax return and his family members returns.
He is also not a good negotiator,you can tell now how China is reacting .

I would not call him a world class real estate tycoon,after 1987,he told others in real estate the business is doomed and there is no future,but the market came back.
Once he cannot come up with $ millions to meet his obligation for his NJ casino,so he asked his father for help.
His father sent someone to his casino and bought enough chips,do you know NJ law,if the casino fails,you can redeem your chips with the state and get your money back.
smart ??

Chinese sellers sell 99cent USB cables with free shipping and send with delivery confirmation

It costs ~$2.60 just to send an empty 1oz envelope to your next door neighbor

I wonder if it is possible for US sellers to open China post accounts, print the label and drop it in the USPS box?

My point is shipping a 1 ounce package with delivery confirmation from Denver, CO to Denver, CO will cost ~2.87

A chinese seller can sell a USB cable for 99 cents free shipping and send it from Shenzen to Denver with delivery confirmation. Cost 99 cents (somehow this 99 cents includes price of product + ebay fees + paypal fees+ envelope + labor + shipping cost)
