Different modes of transportation have their own advantages and disadvantages. Not sure which service to use? Consider whether you are more seeking speed or price. Nihao’s express transportation will be more expensive than dedicated line logistics transportation, and delivery is faster. Generally speaking, the faster the delivery, the better the service and the higher the price; the slower the delivery, the lower the price.

If you can accept a slightly more expensive shipping fee, we recommend that you choose DHL. According to our experience, DHL is not only fast, but also able to track information in a timely manner.

Common questions about Nihao Shipping

What is the delivery scope of Nihao Jewelry?

We deliver to most countries and regions around the world, except for some countries affected by war, affiliated island countries or other remote areas.

Why is the shipping cost of Nihaojewelry a bit expensive?

  1. International cross-border logistics is different from domestic logistics. The transportation of products is long and long, and the transportation process involves related issues such as customs clearance in the target country. In order to ensure the timeliness, safety, and traceability of packages, Nihaojewelry chooses to cooperate with logistics companies that are internationally renowned brands with high credibility and praise.
  2. According to the charging standards of international express, the weight of international express parcels is divided into actual weight and volume weight. The express company will charge based on the larger of the two weights. Therefore, the weight and volume of products and packaging may be used in freight calculations.

First understand our mode of transportation. Most of the express transportation is packaged by Nihaojewelry from the warehouse and delivered to the forwarding agent company. Then freight forwarder will deliver the parcel to the express company of your choice. Finally, the express company will deliver the goods to your destination.

If you choose dedicated line logistics transportation, your package will be delivered by Nihaojewelry to the freight forwarding company from China. It is transported by plane/ship, transit to (for customs clearance) or direct destination country, and delivered to your destination by the local postal service or domestic carrier.

If you do not find any information from our logistics tracking page, there may be the following situations:

  • The warehouse is still stocking up. Our Delivery Time = Processing Time + Shipping Time. There is no tracking information within 1-2 working days after you place the order because we are preparing the goods.

You can see the corresponding order processing status and estimated delivery time in your order details.

  • The warehouse has been shipped, but has not arrived at the express company. The tracking information is provided by the courier company, so you will not be able to find any tracking information from the time the warehouse is shipped to the courier company’s receipt. However, we have actually shipped the goods. Your package will be displayed in the order status as it has been shipped, and “leave warehouse”.

  • The order number is replaced. There are some logistics channels that may cause the order number to be changed and the update is not reported to Nihaojewelry in time, so you will not be able to find the tracking information according to the previous order number. Actually we have already shipped it.
  • For dedicated line transportation, the logistics information will be provided by the local post or domestic transporter, and you will not be able to find the logistics information before this. As a result, the package tracking information will not be timely, such as UPS- Duty Free, USPS, Ship by sea. Tracking information will only be updated when the item arrives in the United States.

  1. The weight does not match. For some delivery methods, we have weight restrictions, for example, DHL-KS is restricted to 21kg or more, and DHL speed up is restricted to 20kg or less. If your package does not match the weight due to the shortage of Nihao warehouse, we may modify your shipping method.
  2. Region. If the delivery method you choose does not support delivery to your destination, the shipping method may also be changed.
  3. The city and zip code do not match. If the delivery method you choose does not actually support delivery to your destination due to the inconsistency of the city and zip code, the delivery method may also be changed.
  4. Built-in battery or other special products. If your package has built-in batteries or other special products, we will modify your delivery method to DHL HK, HK Fedex IE or USPS Battery Available.

What if the order status shows that the order has been delivered but the goods are not actually received?
