Ecommerce Shipping (B2C)

As a dedicated method for eCommerce shipping promoted by China government since 2014, eCommerce shipping (B2C) only takes 24 hours to complete clearance, which reduces the total transit time to 5 to 10 days

This method is suitable to wide range of goods due to a higher value threshold (5000RMB), which brings most flexibility to parcel packing. Also, similar to C2C direct injection, Send2China will handle the custom tax on behalf of the merchants. The parcels will be consolidated to bulky goods and freight forwarded to a China bonded area for swift custom clearance. At the same time, the merchant’s eCommerce website or selling platform needs to host Chinese payment methods like Alipay or WeChat Pay, as the China customs requires payment information from the payment company in order to validate the goods value.

The limit for a single transaction of cross-border e-commerce is 5,000 RMB, and the limit for an individual annual transaction is 26,000 RMB. By using this method, the cross-border eCommerce tax will be applied (please refer to the B2C tax guidance)
