    Hi Neil,

    Thanks for the info but i have noticed lately that the Chinese are now selling/shipping larger items from China on eBay(example-bicycles) and just simply reducing their margin and charging normal EMS,DHL, etc. freight from China, this seems to get around their limitation of only selling/shipping small items. I think they will “own” eBay soon using this
    method !!
    Your Thoughts ?

    • Hi Jimmy,

      If a Chinese seller is shipping direct from China via airfreight then this can give you a very good opportunity.

      To ship a box a bit larger than a shoebox from China via airfreight costs around $100.

      If you bring in the same bicycle like you mentioned via sea freight, the cost of shipping can be much less. For example our last 20 foot container from China to Australia cost $2200 and that holds 27 m³. That is room for a lot of bicycles.

      You of course do not need to bring over a whole container, you can see freight one bicycle if you like however it is of course cheaper to import more at a time.

      Every time you find a Chinese seller shipping large items via airfreight it is a good thing as you may have just found a great opportunity.

    Thanks Neil
    Sure there are some good opportunities if you can find Chinese drop shippers with fast supply chains.

    Hi Neil, I like your videos. A small suggestion to improve your speech: can you reduce or eliminate your swallowing?

    • Thank you for your feedback. I will try.

      I 100% admit I have lots to learn about making videos and I am a complete novice in front of a camera!. These days I sure take my hat off to professional broadcasters.

      I appreciate your feedback.

    Thank You for sharing.. How is the new book coming..?

    • You’re very welcome Frank.

      After a lot of deliberation and requests I have decided to create a home study course first. This is nearly done and I’m just adding the final touches on it now. Hope to have it released before Christmas.

    Hi Neil,

    Thanks for your videos.

    I have noticed Chinese sellers with warehouses located in Australia who are selling on Ebay. They call themselves “Aussie Sellers”, can offer free fast shipping like I do, and still have margins to make when I am only able to break even. The only way I have been able to distinguish myself is on my template, which is much more professional than theirs.

    Any suggestions?


  8. Great eye opener Neil. Thank you! So nice to hear an Aussie accent 😀👍
