    For me,I will choose DHL,which has fast delivery and safe mode.It can be about 20-30$ shipping fee.but i think it is worthwhile.

    For Hongkong air mail,it can have the tracking number,But you can not know what is the transfer process details.What is more,it can be more slow(i guess 8-16 days to get the items)

    It depends on what company it's being shipped via; or at least that my experiences. I've shipped items over $100 via USPS without any extra expenses at all, and I've had it shipped via Fedex, with a value under $100, and have them charge an additional $60 a month later for distribution or something (which is on top of the original shipping cost).

    Try to stay away from UPS and Fedex, they'll rip you off when they can. Other than that, if you don't care about the cost, then ship the cheapest... The cost generally just refers to the speed at which it travels, and the insurance on the package.

    ok...umm??

    the reason i ask this is because there is a little notice saying
    " Air Mail not available if your purchasing value is exceeded US$100.00."
    so you all think it would be ok if i ship to aus using the DHL Rates
    Express 3-5 Days Shipping, Tracking number Available AU : 0.36 lb(s) $15.00

    thanx

    " Air Mail not available if your purchasing value is exceeded US$100.00."

    I guess this policy may consider your parcel safe.The more high value,the more high rate your parcel may lost.As it can be very difficoult to get refund when something happen to your order.So they suggest you take other safe shipping mode.For example,DHL,TNT....

    It is very update you can just see a very unclear statue of your order via Hk airmail.What is more,its delivery day(8-16) is very unstable!

    So it depends on what options you focus.But any way,i think safe and accurate arrival is the key.

    Hi Mate

    I use DHL for large orders all the time to Aust. Very good and you'll get your goods alot quicker. Spend the $15 US the way our exchange rate is at the moment it is well worth it [​IMG]
