Buying from China

In the last month I’ve bought 2 things from overseas. I’m not talking about wholesale for my store, but retail. I don’t know how they are doing it but it is scary to US companies.

My latest purchase was a car charger for my bluetooth earpiece. I paid $2.99 for it and $4.99 shipping. I received it today. It feels a little light, meaning cheaply made, but it works. I guess the test will be to see how long it lasts.

But what amazes me is that it was shipped from Hong Kong. It had a little customs form on it and made it to my door within a week. All this for $4.99. How do they ship things overseas for $5? How do they make money selling something for $8 total?

I have seen more and more China direct online stores lately and they are cheap! How do you make money on this charger for $2.99 with free shipping?
