Does anyone here have a shipping address in China?

I have an item from Ebay, that is from China, and the shipper wants to
charge $180 for a $20 item. while I expected shipping to be more than
the item, I did not expect it to be that high.

I will be in Beijing in October, and could arrange pickup or could
arrange to have someone else who would be visiting sooner to pick it

Any help / thoughts / assistance out there?
otherwise I will just take the hit, and refuse to purchase the item...
I don't ebay that often, and it wouldn't kill me to be banned from
shopping there
