A few questions on shipping from a supplier to your location

I have a few questions; if anyone knows an answer or two (or all :)), it would be much appreciated!

  1. I'm ordering samples from a supplier on Alibaba. They sent me a pro-forma invoice and just said to pay XYZ for express shipping…is that normal?
  2. I'm shipping jewelry (low weight item). In the future ,when I order larger orders, do you think I should ship Express, standard courier service like EMS, or air freight? If air freight, I have to hire a freight forwarder? Any recommendations on courier services or shipping terms would be much appreciated!
  3. Should I get shipping insurance, even if shipping via express? Any recommendations on good shipping insurance and how to go about it if ordering off of Alibaba?
