has anybody used dhgate and are they reliable?
They are just a sourcing site, just as alibaba is, there are a ton of them out there. but alibaba and dhgate are amongst the top in reputation. That doesnt mean that everyone listed on their site is reputable though....Your looking for chinese products?
looking for clothing manufactures
im starting my own brand i have suppliers locally just seeing about prices over seas to cut cost
Aliexpress is Alibaba's sister site. I have bought GOOD things from DHGATE. I vouch.
I've been using dhgate for years now, and haven't had a problem yet.
i used to use dhgate to buy p90x's and studio beats by dr dre. my products were seized by US customs and a letter was sent from their lawyers with a $15,000. i called the lawyers and cleared things up so luckily i wasn't charged.
That is why you should drop-ship only^
DHGate may be reliable, depending on what you buy.
For instance, I would not risk buying electronics. Especially easily counterfeited goods (and known counterfeit goods) such as Dr. Dre Beats, Shure SM57/58s, and Games.
I have always been under the opinion that DHGate was a counterfeit haven, and I have been very wary of using it. Most high name brands are definitely counterfeit. NBA, NFL, and NHL Jersey's are all counterfeit, but you can't tell the difference.
Use common sense in what you buy. Try to compare prices from DHGate to the same product on Amazon. People seem to think that they can make these products for less than $10 and sell them back for $400+ (in the case of Dre Beats). If the price different is greater than 25-30%, I would be wary in buying it.
If you buy counterfeit items then be sure to ship it to a drop location.
I made the mistake (a year ago) of ordering 10 windows 7 ultimate cd keys including cases, cds, manuals and everything. They got delivered by got caught by the gouverment before they got to me and I almost got sued by Microsoft. I had to sign a piece of paper that basically means that I will get killed by Microsoft if I ever import any Microsoft counterfeited goods again.
So yea... be really careful with counterfeit goods.
Used them a lot like everything else some good some crooks, if its clothing you are after then you need to look at India, the prices just as low and the quality very good.
Try looking for supplier on Indiamart, they are very good at policing the suppliers.
