You get that money back either way though.
It's just do you want the lower price now or wait for a refund a couple of days after you ship 🤷🏽♂️
Yup! For smaller packages it may be useless and might even cost you a few bucks more (if the estimate is already accurate or cheaper than actual weight) but if you’re shipping $100+ shipping fee packages and can’t afford the initial shipping fee, the ~$4 you pay for rehearsal can save you the same amount upfront.
If you can't afford the shipping on your fake luxury goods you're really fuckin up somewhere lol
I mean a lot of people here aren't really balling with loads of cash. That's why they're here in the first place instead of buying retails. $100+ on shipping alone can be a lot, especially for uni/highschool students and even for entry level professionals.
Honestly, most of the items I buy I can afford retail of. I work in marketing and make pretty good pay, bills paid, have a nice apartment, savings and stocks.
However, over the years I just noticed that reps are just as good as retail so why pay x10 the price for an almost identical item?
Maybe back in the day it made sense, I guess but now I don't get mad when my shoes get dirty or stepped on. Working with/for companies and people that have a shitload of money I just view money and the cost of things as a psychological game.
I like the shoes, colors and how they match my fits thats all. But I do understand this subreddit is filled with high schoolers rocking $500+ shoes when they jump into their momma's corolla after class. 😂
Just wanted to give a different take of also why people are here.
I'm pretty much in the same boat, work in IT for ~6 years now and have decent disposable income after all bills and contributions. I'm somewhat new to this sub and much like you I'm fed up with paying 10x more for retail when quality doesn't really warrant the 10x mark-up. I know people claim these companies spend a lot on marketing and r&d but most of the shirts I buy are blanks with a subtle logo that anyone with MS paint can design.
Even then $100 usd for shipping alone is still quite an amount. I guess I'm just used to free shipping via ecommerce and don't really have a lot of packages imported outside of US/Canada. I just disagree with the other guy I replied to, making it seem like $100usd on shipping alone is easily affordable for everyone. It's easily affordable for working professionals like us but I'm willing to bet a good portion of this /r are students or fresh grads.
Yeah, agreed. Even though I can afford the shipping, I wish it was like amazon lol 2-day free shipping.
Yeah $100 is a lot for non working or even working teenagers. I hated working retail and making $65 a day, shit was rough so I can sympathize with the kids on this board.
So wear Kohls $50 nikes like the rest of the kids in school.
I swear you are brain dead or just have the reading level of a 6 year old with autism
I’m guessing you didn’t read the thread 😑
$200 on shipping hurts, even I can afford it. It just hurts my soul
I can’t wait for this to get downvoted to oblivion for being the truth
Thanks, yeah pretty typical on reddit, 90% of the subs are poor libturds wanting something for nothing.
It just makes me giggle that people want to look rich so bad that they will buy reps even if they can't afford the shipping. That's just nutty to me. I have 4 grand in fake watches and a few shoes and purses for my wife and shit, but that's all extremely discretionary income. At the end of the day I'm still putting away much much more than I spend on reps. And that's just one of my several expensive hobbies(guns, drones, rc trucks, motorcycles). Not trying to flex or brag, i know I've got it better than most, but I also wore my bulova that my grandma gave me for graduation through college and bought shoes at kohl's when I had a 30% off coupon. Now I'm 10 years out and can have nice (fake 🤡🤡) things while still being responsible to the more important things in life like my family.
Grown man saying libtard. Let’s keep politics out of it please and just discuss reps.
Most people using that have no idea what the difference between a liberal, libertarian or a leftist is with out googling it too.
Libturd man . ....
Libtard is ableist
“poor libturds” 💀 you’re a grown man acting like that lmfao unreal
What you doing on a rep sub if you are rich?
Not being a victim of consumerism, especially, especially when it comes to things where the gen and rep are made in china
I have about a 4kg package. How do I determine whether to do volume or weight? Should I do rehearsal (it might already be too late so maybe not)? If I choose not to do rehearsal when will I know how much I should expect back? Is it randomly refunded?
I’m sure the sub website thing answers some of them but like some other have said, I don’t understand it.
Agreed, for the people that don't want to wait
Don’t you gotta pay for rehearsal?
Its only 20 yuan about 3 bucks
I rather just be patient than spend $3.
You may end up spending more in conversion fees from the refund no? I guess it all depends on the scale of hauls
I have no idea how to do rehearsal. the guide on this subreddit is confusing to me
search your rehearsal packaging on youtube
Last 2 times I did rehersal they still overcharged me for postage by like 200-400¥. Least they give it back 😅
If you don’t do rehearsal you still get your money on the back end right??
Each to their own. I like to just pay it, get a refund and have a nice amount to buy more reps with lols
You must have a high service level on an agent like basetao, that’s my guess
Which agent is this with
What shipping line do you use and to what country?
What is rehearsal?
They weigh your package ahead of time to determine the actual weight so you pay the real cost of the shipping rather than paying more and waiting to be refunded when it's weighed by the shipping company.
If you're shipping with Superbuy, the rehearsal service is apart of "expert service" under Customer Service at the bottom of the page
I am using superbuy but I think I skipped it because they’re ready to ship. Does it really matter though? When do you get paid back? I feel like you’d just be paying extra for a rehearsal when you could just wait the extra week for the refund? Or does the shipping company lie and not refund gou
what is this? im new to this and have gather some items i want to buy for my first haul, i havent ordered them yet, just listed.
there is a post on this community explaining, or you can search rehearsal packaging on youtube that explains pretty well
Looks like it was the size more than the weight that saved you all that money. Good to know.
Which agent do you use? And where’s this shipping to
Its blacklisted on this sub. But look up "cheapest agent reps" on yt and itll be the first vid by cedaz
Why is it blacklisted?
cuz of politics on the sub
I just burnt my fingers paying $80 shipping for a $250 worth of goods by using official taobao shipping will ensure I do rehearsal via third party now.
Quick question - in case the rehearsal shows shipping cost is too high, how easy is to return the package and get a refund? I understand seller needs to approve it?
I ordered shit over a month ago and have no clue where da fuck it's at. Says shipped international. But anyways does it usually take this long.
One month is chump numbers.
,, 😂 yeah figures, only problem tho is that I bought the more expensive shipping so what the hell
depends on what shipping service you paid for. But you can track your package with the tracking number the agent provides
Yeah, I'll try and figure it out. Worst comes to worst I don't get my shit but whatever
I have to ask am i not understanding something or is reps really this cheap? 1600 yens is about 12€
its no yen, its chinese yuan. Also that is the shipping price not the price of the reps
yen is japan, yuan is china
Yen and yuan got the same currency symbol, lol. But I get what you mean: context - read the room. 😂
