Thank you for your explanation. Just a quick question, is CIF and DDP the same thing? Thanks!

Mona Iu hi mona, CIF will get your goods up to the destination port, all destination costs (THC, delivery, duties/taxes payable by you). DDP your goods will be delivered to your door with all charges including Duties/Tax paid for by the shipper.

I still don't get it....FUUUUUUU I'm about to make my first order of 100 pieces. What does FOB Shanghai mean? Will the goods be delivered to my doorstep or do I have to hire someone else to forward the shippment?

Matt FOB gets you nowhere, you will need a freight forwarder
can export import be done through home with investment??

I have been looking around for a video explaining some of the Alibaba order page. Like walk through it... I can see the offer and price for the units at the top, then shipping, then payment. But specifying shipping doesn't tell me how much shipping is. Do you just confirm order and hope for the best? Besides that, I am wondering about the payment methods, which is safest, what do I do? Which ones are part of the Alibaba escrow?

Just one thing I think you are wrong. FOB just work when goods are being exported by ocean or inland waterway, so on FOB the delivery take place on the ship (not on the airport). Thanks

can you explain EXW?

Good video! So to clarify, with CIF the goods will be shipped to a port near me in the USA. Does CIF include USA customs, or does that happen on my end? And then would I make arrangement with a US carrier like UPS for customs and shipping to me?
