    Default Re: Importing from China - Ordering and shipping forwarding suggestions

    Thanks guys. I'm trying to get it shipped to YouShop but I get the feeling I'm making a mess of it.
    If we take this as an example of one of the products I'd like to order from them:
    http://www.mi.com/miwifimini/

    I get a bunch of errors at the checkout when I'm trying to add in my address.
    I've found this page for YouShop which has the address in Chinese as well, but I can't make it validate my settings: https://support.nzpost.co.nz/app/ans...lified-chinese

    Any help / pointers would be greatly appreciated

    Copy and paste the details? You did do that? Ask them what/how to put it in? As in ring them perhaps?
    Bloody youshop - why don't you use an asian one, plenty of them around.....

    Coz I'm not supposed to copy / paste the details.
    I would have used ship2u but they've closed their China office.

    I don't know of any others (Hence why I'm asking here).

    Maybe we could do a team viewer on this so you can show me how you are proceeding with the sale when you purchase the miwifimini?

    Can you PM me your mobile number?
    I'll give you a call and maybe we can do this thru remote access control so you can show me the screen and we can do it together?

    or maybe I can ask my father in hong kong to see if the shop sells it?
    Either way,,,.
    I promise I won't charge you commission fees for the device haha

    Unfortunately not, they don't sell what I want on the Global store.

    Will PM you, Ninjabear, thanks so much
