If you’re here reading this, you would probably already be looking for a company to help you with your “sensitive” items shipping from China.
We know many of our competitors who simply refuse “sensitive” items shipping, either tossing it away or refusing to sign for the packages and leaving it in courier limbo – where the package isn’t returned to the sender yet nor is it actually signed…. and we have the first-hand experience of this since we too, are avid shoppers ourselves who started Sheep in the first place to address this problem.
Yes we do. 100% – and at no extra charge. All we ask is that you help us flag it out correctly so that we can use the right channels of declaration.
Honestly, each country has its own definition of what is sensitive. For example, the customs of a culturally conservative country such as China would take exceptional interest in products such as sex toys, certain forms of media and books, religious media, etc – while the airlines would be more concerned about cargo safety such as “Hey, is this flammable? Is this packed sufficiently to prevent combustion?”.
That said, to give you a good idea of what constitutes as such:
Any product which contains any form of liquids will be classified as sensitive goods. Flammable liquid is strictly prohibited.
Any product which has a magnetic component will be classified as sensitive goods.
Any product which is operated by battery (cell, conventional or rechargeable) is classified as sensitive goods.
Any product, no matter whether it is authentic or a replica, which brand is under customs export or import control is considered to be sensitive goods. This is due to certain prohibitions of parallel import/export for the brands.
Any appliance which has a motor or generates electricity are also considered sensitive goods.
Anything which is in powder, paste and a granular form are, unfortunately, considered sensitive goods. too
Anything which applies to the skin or which usage involves bodily contact is classified as sensitive goods.
Any electronic which have an integrated circuit (processor, microchip, memory) is classified as sensitive goods.
Anything religious by definition is sensitive goods. Anything related to satanic cults are also prohibited.
All food (fresh, raw, cooked and processed) and medicine (spray, powder, pill and syrup) are sensitive goods. Perishable and meat products (canned, cooked and processed) are strictly prohibited.
Not really, this list might be subject to change in the future. We’ll do our very best to keep you updated along the way, but please help us out by declaring the items correctly.
