The Chinese postal service subsidizes export packages like crazy. It's cheaper to mail some minor electronic trinket (like an OBD II bluetooth dongle) from Shanghai to my house than it is to mail a letter from next door to my house. Meanwhile, USPS wants $2.70 for a sub ounce domestic package because it's more than 1/8" thick.
