    I've recently come across Merbest who offer great prices on games/phones/tablets etc. I've contacted one of the admins via Skype and they have a minimum on 10 units sale policy. Just wondering if anyone here has had any experience with them.

    Thanks!!!

    I wish I could tell you but i guess you will have to try and buy a small item from them and then see if you actually get it. I see they say they would dropship on their site. So order as you would with one item and let us know. I am sketchy though, How many china websites offer consoles?? Just Saying.

    Interesting site, they sell GTA V for PS3 for $26 .... :)
    Well, if you use paypal for payment, there cannot really any scam happen.
    Just don't use money gram or western union

    I'd be careful. Even GameStop doesn't have a 100% markup on video games.

    Well, just because it is a new website it does not have to be scam.

    Also, they say they do dropshipping, so no minimum 10, for dropshipping it is 1, just use your own address or a friend's one, if you do not get the item ask for tracking, if nothing, just file a complaint with paypal.

    I just talked with the guy, he doesn't accept Paypal which is strange. He says its because his business is small. he only accepts Money gram and bank transfer, I told him when he accepts Paypal, to inform me. I was going to do a review but i cant unless i know my purchase will be safe. However, he sent me pics of his products which looks like it was taken from a cell phone.

    It does. I don't know why he cant accept Paypal. Anyone who knows anything about business knows that Paypal will be the linking bridge for buyers to at least trust him as a seller.

    I did have a conversation with him over Skype, he claims that his paypal is "full" and insists on using Western Union or money gram...

    is full?? Lol, He is telling two different stories. I think he is a fake. Not many overseas businesses who tries to appeal to the American consumers work out that well without Paypal. He should know that.

    Well, Paypal charges quite high fees in China for receiving money as a seller ..... also if he sells replica stuff paypal is out of the game ....
    Not really sure about this, he should give out a real phone number (not skype, not mobile = landline number) to check out if this "company" really exists .....
