I'd really appreciate some feedback on the following, just can't find clear answers online.
Shipping from China to Amazons warehouse.
Is there a reliable company that can handle the whole process. A door to door service?
I expect my first consignment to be around 150kg. Would $2,000 for air freight shipping and agent fees be realistic?
Proper packaging and labeling
Do I need a UPC Code and bar code... are these the same thing? Would this do, Buy UPC Codes Instantly for Amazon or In Stores - InstantUPCCodes.com
As it's made in China, does it have to have "Made In China" on the box, product or both?
Does my box need to be plastic sealed? It's about the size of a shoebox.
Is there a reliable way to find out the import duty beforehand. I found calculators online, but not sure how reliable they are. I know there's different duty for different products. Mine is pet related, any idea of the import duty?
30 days after creating product
I read on here that you have 30 days after creating your product on Amazon to get it to their warehouse. Is this true? Doesn't leave much room if you're shipping by sea, which can take over a month.
