How can Hong Kong/China sellers afford free shipping to their costumers on ebay?

I've been looking around on ebay for a few stuff that I would like to get for a cheaper price. However I always tend to avoid the free shipping ones mostly because I cannot understand how stuff from China/Hong Kong can be sent for free. I mean, the actual items price would be lower than the shipping price after my calculations.

How come they can afford to offer this to their costumers?

They get the items for so cheap that they usually have the shipping included in the asking price, and STILL can undersell competition, plus because they have such large volume, they negotiate lower shipping prices with their shipper.
