If you’re a China-based entrepreneur (or any ecommerce seller with Chinese products) whose target market is the USA, you should know about the disruption coming in due to the continuous trade war between the US and China. More importantly, you should know how Fulfillmen can help your business!
The USA is on a verge of pulling out from the Universal Postal Union (UPU). US President Donald Trump think it’s unfair that they pay more in postal fees than China, which have a “developing country status”, making them pay lesser fees than the US. This is the reason why China-based products can be delivered to US with a cheaper price.
According to Henry Gao, Associate Professor of Law at Singapore Management University, “Low costs in China is only one reason. Another major reason is the terminal dues system of the UPU, which fixes the postage rates artificially by classifying countries into different groups,”
The US also does not want Chinese products from coming in to their country because we take a lot of market share in the American markets – and they also don’t like the fact that Chinese product imported to the US are low-quality.
With all of these, the US is pulling out of the UPU. If this is successful, what will happen to you, the entrepreneur?
For China-based entrepreneurs, this could mean a more expensive costs on delivering products and making business in American markets. China-based entrepreneurs and companies would experience big cuts in their profits if the US completely pulls out from the UPU.
