Buying from stores in China and shipping to Brazil is now possible with Borderlinx’s new Hong Kong shipping hub.
Chinese retailers are well known for offering a large selection of items at competitive prices. This means you can find Brazil’s highly sought-after items like clothing, makeup and toys at steep discounts. Stores in China also carry a wide range of exclusive items you can’t find anywhere else in the world so you’ll find exactly what you want, when you want it.
By using the Borderlinx Hong Kong hub, you’ll also have access to China’s renowned blowout sales throughout the year like Chinese New Year (February 8), National Day (October 1), Singles Day (November 11) and Double 12 (December 12).
Shopping Chinese retailers is the perfect way to save money and discover new brands.
Here’s what you can do to get started.
1. Shop Chinese Retailers
Don’t know where to shop? Head over to our list of suggested Hong Kong brands to learn what type of merchandise you can buy in each store. When you’re ready, visit the retailer’s website. You can access it directly from each brand’s profile page.
Websites will likely be displayed in Mandarin, so you’ll need to translate pages to either Portuguese or English. We recommend using Google Chrome as your browser for the easiest way to translate a webpage. If you’re using another browser, copy and paste any text into Google Translate.
When searching for a particular item, try using China’s popular search engine Baidu or others like Yahoo and Bing. If you use Google, beware. It might be blocked in China so you won’t find very good results to your search.
2. Get Discounts
Check your Borderlinx dashboard often for promotional codes to use when shipping out of our Hong Kong hub. All you have to do is sign in to Borderlinx and go to your account page. Until January 31, you can get 20% off your first order.
Also visit our Shop Smart Ship Smart page where we provide you with valuable tools like shipping tips, shopping guides and other ways to save.
3. Estimate Shipping Costs
Use our Shipping Cost Calculator to estimate the cost of delivering items to your home in Brazil when using Borderlinx. The calculator also allows you to check if the item you want to buy is on the restricted international shipping list.
4. Compare Prices in Your Preferred Currency
5. Use Your Borderlinx Hong Kong Address at Checkout
Our Hong Kong hub makes shipping from stores in China to your home in Brazil possible.
