Ship stuff to our office and we'll include it with your next order!
For a flat fee per parcel we accept your items, consolidate them, and ship them with your next order.
*We DO NOT purchase Taobao items for you. You can buy stuff yourself with an international credit card though, and we will forward it to you.
How it works
Fill basic information about the parcel:
Purchase 1 China Forward for each parcel we receive. For example:
After checkout you'll get a China Forward virtual mailbox code. Find it here.
Put a unique China Forward virtual mailbox code on the address label of every parcel we receive on your behalf. Have your parcel sent to our office.
You get notice when each parcel arrives. When everything arrives we open each parcel, package it carefully into a single box, and forward it with any other items in your order.
Good to know
Estimating the weight can be a challenge. Enter your best guess. We will issue a refund or require additional payment as needed prior to shipping.
You can combine China Forwarding with other items in the same order if you like. You may also buy China Forwarding alone.
Orders ship only when all parcels have been received. If you have other things in your order like PCBs, 3D prints, or normal store items, your order will ship only when complete.
1 China Forward virtual mailbox code = 1 parcel. Parcels without a virtual mailbox code will ALWAYS be refused and returned to sender. Each code is good for one parcel only, duplicates will be refused and returned to sender.
10KG+ please warn us ahead of time. 20KG+ please email for 3-4 day FedEx air freight prices.
This service is designed so you can combine component samples from your suppliers with your next PCB order. There's a lot of things we won't or can't ship:
It goes without saying: don't dare send anything considered illegal, immoral, or indecent in China, USA, Hong Kong, or your own jurisdiction. We will turn it over to the proper authority immediately.

We DO NOT purchase stuff on Taobao for you
This is a forwarding service only. We do not and never will purchase stuff on Taobao for you. You can sign up for your own Taobao account and purchase things with an international credit card. Send them to us and we will forward them to you.
Get a Taobao account and pay with an international credit card
Foreigners can open Taobao accounts and pay with an international credit card (up to 2000RMB per order), but sellers still don't ship outside China. If you're slightly daring you can skip the expensive and unreliable the Taobao purchasing agents and ship your packages to us. We will have a tutorial on starting the account and payment soon.
