    Look like good deals but who can you trust? I want to pay with a guaranteed payment like Visa to make sure I get a good tv.

    Any one have info on buying tvs wholesale or who is good to deal with?

    Thanks

    I used to import stuff from China, but you have to be careful.
    I imported Spa pools.
    I did my home work made contact with people already getting these from the suppler I was going to get mine from, everything looked OK, it was at that time.
    So I imported 12 Spas and sold them within 14 days of me receiving them at wholesale prices.
    I placed my next order and 8 weeks later 12 Spa pools arrived and once again I sold them really quickly.
    I only had one small problem with these 24 Spa pools.
    Because of the long wait from me placing an order and having the Spa pools made and delivered I placed my next for 36 Spa pools.
    That's when I got well and truly shafted, all 36 Spa pools had major faults.
    I just happened to choose the time to increase my order size when a new production manger started to work for this firm and he F***** UP BIG Time.

    I lost $100,000+

    WOW bro, 100K in one hit?

    Was it a bank transfer, what did you do to get your money back (I'm sure you did not just let it go without a fight)


    How much where you selling each spa pool for if you where getting them for $2800 each.


    Thanks for your input, reps awarded:)

    They did 6 different models of spas, prices range from: $2,200 - $3,200.
    I used to add 100% - 150%
    Yes I paid by bank transfer, but once they have your money in China all you can do is trust them.
    They sent me more spare parts, but when the spare parts also started to break down they is not much
    you can do.
    Also the parts required for these spas was only supplied by this company.
    I did try to locate parts from other companies but this company had made the spas in such other companies parts did not fit.
    No I never got my money back, I knew I would not, that's the way it is when you do business outside your country, in China anyway.
