Hello fellow Alibaba traders,
I have had great communication and success with most sellers in China. However I sent over two plastic headlight lens for potential mold to be made. The manufacturer refused to give me a ballpark quote for mold cost so I sent the lenses over. My initial quote at USPS was $58.xx, by the time I bought mailing tape at the PO and a small book of stamps, my total was $70.92 to send the package. Now coming back to the same city, with the same two lenses, after deal did not work out, the manufacturer in China said it would cost "$200 to send back". I kindly replied that I do a lot of business in China and that seems very high. He said "China post will not go cheaper, but since you are friend, we pay $50. Send $150"
I have held my tongue to this correspondent in China but I am not happy. The post office doesn't quote "$200" to ship-- frankly I am insulted by this. Someone please advise, I really need those lenses back and I feel like I am being extorted with no options.
Hoping to business in China again,
