How & Why USPS Subsidizes Shipments From Chinese Sellers
« on: April 04, 2018, 04:27:02 PM »
Did you think the reason Chinese vendors get to ship to U.S. so cheaply is because of subsidies from Chinese govt? Think again.

From the article: as a result of this shipping fee imbalance, it's estimated that 25% of the 3P marketplace on Amazon is made up of vendors from China.  :o

Yes, that article is a good read. Too bad it won't do anything to help spur a fix.
