CNXtrans is a leading Shipping Agent for Shopify Store owners, offering international shipping services from China to Shopify store owners all around the world
CNXtrans is a leading China-based Shipping Agent and Freight Forwarder enabling Shopify store owners, both individuals and businesses all over the world to consolidate packages and ship internationally from one or multiple Alibaba suppliers (the suppliers do not necessarily have to be from Alibaba - our service can help you ship from simply any supplier/vendor/factory in China).
Most China factories on Alibaba and other similar platforms will require you to have an international shipping agent before taking your order
One of the first things many factories in China will ask you before taking your order is whether you have an international shipping agent. They need you to give them your China shipping agent's warehouse address for them to send the goods to. From there, your China shipping agent will consolidate and ship your goods together internationally to you. Since most factories in China work on a EXW basis, they will require you as a Shopify store owner to find your own international shipping agent for the purposes of shipping internationally to you.
CNXtrans will therefore be your international shipping agent and offer you a warehouse address located in Guangdong province - the logistical and import-export hub of China with access to the most shipping routes from China at the lowest shipping rates. As a result, CNXtrans has become the preferred international shipping agent for countless Shopify store owners around the world who are buying and shipping internationally from China.
Whatever goods you may be buying from China as a Shopify store owner such as apparel, accessories, fashion products, electronics, gadgets, tools, phone covers, chargers and other phone accessories, toys, robot toys, pet supplies, medical supplies, home decor products, furniture and so on, CNXtrans can act as your international shipping agent and ship worldwide for you via air, sea or rail depending on your specific shipping needs.
What is Shopify?
Shopify Inc. is a Canadian multinational e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario. It is also the name of its proprietary e-commerce platform for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems. Shopify offers online retailers a whole host of services including payments, marketing, shipping and "customer engagement tools". The company reported that it had more than 1,000,000 businesses in approximately 175 countries using its platform as of June 2019. The total gross merchandise volume exceeded US$61 billion for the calendar year of 2019.
Shopify was founded in 2004 by Tobias Lütke, Daniel Weinand, and Scott Lake after attempting to open Snowdevil, an online store for snowboarding equipment. Dissatisfied with the existing e-commerce products on the market, Lütke, a computer programmer by trade, decided instead build his own. Lütke used the open source web application framework Ruby on Rails to build Snowdevil's online store, and launched it after two months of development. The Snowdevil founders then launched the platform as Shopify in June 2006.
Today, Shopify describes itself as 'a commerce platform that allows anyone to set up an online store and sell their products. Merchants can also sell their products in person with Shopify POS'. Shopify helps businesses of all sizes - whether you’re a budding jewelry designer and want to start selling your products, or a musician and want to sell your latest mixtape, or if you have an established business and want to grow, Shopify is for you. Hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs from over 175 countries trust Shopify to help sell their products and it is one of the most successful if not the most successful ecommerce store enablers in the world today.
Use CNXtrans as your Shopify International Shipping Agent
Have your packages from one or multiple Alibaba suppliers/factories sent to our warehouse in China and we'll consolidate and ship internationally to you, your warehouses, your fulfillment centers or even your Amazon FBA warehouses via air, sea or rail
Are you a Shopify store owner who is samples or buying in bulk from multiple Alibaba suppliers or factories in China and need us to consolidate them and have them shipped together internationally to you or your warehouses/fulfillment centers? This will help you to minimize your international shipping costs from China since it would cost much more to have each individual product shipped separately. Get our warehouse address in China and give it your Alibaba suppliers/factories for them to send the goods to. Once all the goods have arrived at our warehouse, we will consolidate and ship internationally to you.
Furthermore, warehousing, storage, repacking and consolidation of goods at our warehouse are offered free of charge. This allows you to take your time to make all the orders you need to make without worrying about incurring storage charges before shipping. We'll store your goods for you at our warehouse until everything has arrived and you're ready to ship internationally. CNXtrans works with thousands of Shopify online store owners around the world. Contact CNXtrans at email@example.com for more details.
There are a couple of issues with buying from Aliexpress instead of Alibaba. Firstly, Aliexpress mainly caters to buyers buying in small quantities as opposed to buying in bulk on Alibaba. Therefore, you will find that Aliexpress product prices are almost always higher than on Alibaba. The other issue is that Aliexpress is set up as a platform for overseas buyers and therefore does not have a feature that allows Aliexpress sellers to send products to domestic addresses in China. Since many Shopify store owners are dissatisfied with the slow shipping times offered on Aliexpress, not being able to have Aliexpress send the goods to another freight forwarder (like CNXtrans) can be frustrating. Nevertheless there are some Shopify store owners who prefer to use Aliexpress because they are used to the products and do not have to commit to a high volume.
There is a solution for such Shopify store owners. You can still contact the Aliexpress sellers and ask them directly if you can deal with them directly and get them to have your goods sent to the CNXtrans warehouse address for international shipping. Also, unlike AliExpress, Taobao and Alibaba do allow sellers to fulfill orders by shipping goods to domestic addresses. Many Aliexpress sellers do also have stores on Taobao and Alibaba. Therefore, another alternative for Shopify store owners is to get these sellers to redirect them to their Taobao or Alibaba storefronts and purchase from those platforms instead. This way, you can not only enjoy low product prices but also the faster and more efficient shipping of a Chinese freight forwarder like CNXtrans when buying and shipping internationally from China as a Shopify store owner.
Enjoy Free Warehousing Services at the CNXtrans Warehouse
Our Free Storage, Free Labelling, Free Repackaging & Free Consolidation services significantly reduce your shipping costs when buying in bulk from Alibaba Merchants (and other Chinese factories/manufacturers/websites/suppliers) and shipping internationally to your doorstep
Free Unlimited Storage
CNXtrans does not charge you for storage of goods at our warehouse. Hence you can take your time to buy from as many Alibaba suppliers/factories (or other websites and suppliers) as you wish - we'll store all your goods (which have already arrived) at our warehouse until everything has arrived and you're ready to ship internationally
Free Labelling of Packages
CNXtrans does not charge you for labelling of packages at our warehouse. Whether you need us to label your packages with Amazon FBA stickers for purposes of shipping to Amazon FBA warehouses or you need us to stick on your company on your company logo, simply send the stickers to us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) we'll stick them on for you at no charge.
Free Repackaging Service
CNXtrans does not charge you for repackaging of goods at our warehouse. Once all your packages have arrived we'll access them for international shipping and decide how to pack them in the most efficient way as to minimize your volumetric weight and thereby minimize your international shipping costs. This may involve using a smaller package for certain items or simply combining all the items from different packages into one big package - we'll do whatever it takes to minimize your volumetric weight.
Free Consolidation of Packages
CNXtrans does not charge you for consolidating your packages into a single shipment. This is ideal if you're buying from multiple Alibaba Suppliers (or other Chinese websites) but wish to have all your goods shipped together as a single international shipment in order to minimize your shipping costs. Consolidation is sometimes confused with repacking but in actual fact consolidation can come both with or without repacking. Consolidation simply refers to the act of shipping multiple packages concurrently as a single shipment - they do not all have to be combined into one big package - as long as they are shipped together (concurrently) it is considered one consolidated shipment. There is a base shipping charge (which can be thought of as a minimum shipping charge) for each shipment that you make and shipping multiple packages concurrently (which constitutes a consolidated shipment) ensures that you only have to pay this base charge once instead of paying it for every single package that is shipped separately.
Even without repacking them into a single package, shipping multiple packages concurrently helps you save because you are only charged the base shipping weight once. This helps reduce your international shipping costs. Naturally, if deemed appropriate for your shipment, consolidation can come with repackaging too - after assessing your shipment if we deem that combining all the items into one single large package or into fewer packages can help reduce your volumetric weight, we will do so for you at no charge.
