Default how to get cheap china shipping from company's?

I want to order a 18kg package but the shipping fees are more then if i were to order one at a time from china . What should i do? Every seller is offering me around 150$ for shipping witch makes it way more then ordering one item shipped. A other seller offered me a .23kg package for 149$ . From over 50 different company's. How am i suppose to get cheap shipping? Every time i bring up how it cost way less they ether block me or bring up about how i still can profit. One company was trying to charge me 100$ extra for a dhl shipment. IS every china seller like this for small wholesale orders?

DHL should be the cheapest option of all except China Post.

18kg shouldnt cost more than about $50 unless they use what is called volume weight. Ive seen this lately where the size is very large but the weight is very low.

I recently had to turn away a few suppliers cause of this. The size cause the package to cost more.

The most recent thing i bought like this were the carbon wheels for my bike. The package was like 3lbs and the shipping was like $60. For $60 i can get like 100kg sent of my product but this was a very large box and they had to use volume shipping instead of weight shipping.

Get it boated, that is the cheapest option.

If you boat it you have to pick it up at the port and there's other issues.

You own at a map, right? China is on the other side of the world. Would YOU haul 28KG 18,000 miles for $100? I think not.

The key words here are 'small wholesale' and 'everybody' says the same thing.

They block you because you're not a 'wholesaler', you're a small buyer, and they're telling you they're not going to take a shipping hit for your tiny little time-wasting order when they can sell somebody else pallet loads with 20,000-100,000 pieces at a time.

When I purchase I order 80-100K pieces at a time, 2X a month on the average, and I keep 1-2 million pieces of inventory here on hand. These are VERY inexpensive items, but still, 100,000 piece orders still get a certain degree of attention and service.

I get a rate that's about 1/3 of the DHL commercial rate. My guess is they subsidize the shipping themselves.

And I'm small potatoes on the scale these guys sell.

You want a real deal try buying 10,000 units and spending 3-6K at a time. You'll get treated pretty well.

Otherwise be glad they work with you at all.
