    Do you think its safe to buy from DH gate? Like if I pay through paypal there shouldnt be an risk right?

    For example, I'm thinking about buying 30 pieces of Pokemon White version for like 10 bucks each. Minmum order is 30 pieces so 300 dollars total free shipping. Can resell them on ebay for 20-25 dollars. So 10-15 profit each. Think its safe to go ahead and buy a lot from this guy? Through dhgate.

    Oh and hes saying its in english version, no japanese shiit

    I've bought from DH Gate a few times without problem. The way they work is; you order and pay, seller sends goods, you click that you've received them and the seller gets paid.

    It's still very very unsecure. Escrow doesn't operate how it should in principle on that site. I've not had a problem myself as I've never been able to qualify any potential wholesalers because they tend to be very evasive. However, simply by approaching a few potential sellers , I've been bombarded with scam messages- For example, I'd been dealing with some chinese broad trying to buy replica perfumes , everything was going fine and I was about to actually make a buy, then, out of the fucking blue, she emailed me saying "I'm currently in London for a conference and I have lost my wallett, you are very good customer of mine, could you pay for my flight home and I will refund you when I return" The reply I gave her, is far too brutal to share on BHW, but put it this way, if she forwarded it to interpol, I'd be doing a ten stretch right now!

    All in all, there are obviously alot of genuine sellers on there, just be sure to check them out thoroughly and ask as many questions as you can, don't rush it , because they aren't going anywhere, and if youre desperate to make money,forget about that site, because if you rush things you will lose. Trust your instinct and don't be afraid to piss the seller off by asking tones of questions, if they are genuine they will help u in anyway possible, if they are even the slightest bit evasive and fail to answer you, tell them to get fucked! Best of luck mate

    Ive used DHGATE quite a bit (maybe 50-100 purchases) and they work just fine. I've had to handle disputes and they work out fine as well, actually better than ebay/paypal since DHGATE doesnt pay the seller until you sign off as everything ok (or the time limit comes up)

    ALWAYS order a sample first, chinese are notorious for sending out fake ****

    DHgate itself is not a bad site, but alot of the sellers are scammers

    Know what your buying before you dive in head first.

    Yo but my question is.. is it safe? Like if I buy through paypal my money is safe no matter what right? Like all I have to do is open a case or some shiit and paypal will refund me? As long as I don't buy through gift.

    Yes dhgate is safe, you will get what u pay for. Use paypal, ship dhl not ems, and expect alot of complaints if you are selling replicas, like I said you get what u pay for. I have ordered about 75 times never any issues, but never ordered branded items.

    dhgate is fine, but you need to research which seller is legit.
    I personally prefer aliexpress for my purchases.

    I purchased from DHGate and after I did the seller told me they were fakes so I put in a dispute with DHGate and got my money back. 99.9% of the things you buy from there are fakes so order in small quantities because of customs issues and sell under the radar.

    DH Gate is a chinese Whoelsaler. Most of their stuff looks like fakes and replicas but maybe those card are legit.
    You never know until you try.
