There are four main ways for overseas commodities to enter China through legal channels:
1. General trade (trade mode code is 0110)
In the traditional sense of import trade, companies with import and export rights in China purchase goods from overseas suppliers and sell them domestically.
2. Imported cross-border trade e-commerce-direct purchase import (trade mode code is 9610)
Chinese domestic e-commerce companies sell overseas products to individual domestic consumers. After the user places an order, the goods are packaged overseas and transported to the customs in China through international logistics. After customs clearance is completed, they are distributed to consumers using China's domestic logistics.
3. Imported cross-border trade e-commerce-bonded import (trade method code 1210)
Chinese domestic e-commerce companies sell overseas products to individual domestic consumers. In China, commodities are first shipped in bulk from overseas to particular customs supervision areas or bonded logistics centers (Type B). After users place an order, the goods are packaged in a bonded warehouse. Then, after customs clearance is completed, they are delivered to consumers using China's domestic logistics.
4. Inbound express mail for personal items (type B express mail for short, no trade method code) domestic recipients (natural persons) for personal private use.
Entry into China for customs clearance is roughly divided into four essential links: declaration, inspection, taxation, and release.
