    I would say escrow is probably the safest way to do payments online

    Escrow is always the best bet. Makes buyers trust you more

    Most importantly, are you Chinese and can speak Chinese? If not, don't expect any amazing deals on items, lol.

    Make sure you realise that replicas and counterfeit are two different things. One will make you allot of money and one will cost you allot of money.

    On a lighter note, when in China please find out why the things made in China have no warranty or guarantee on them?:)

    And also, even if there is one on them, why the thing fails immediately one day after the warranty/guarantee is over?

    Thanks!

    False, unless you are a noob at sourcing in china

    I am not Chinese and yesterday I bought 4 jumpers, 2 scarves, 3 trousers, 25 wood bracelets, a woolly hat and a winter coat for less than 50 euros. And that is just shopping for me and my gf, its not even sourcing for my business.

    False, unless you are a noob at sourcing in china

    I use to work for a company that purchased from a supplier, this supplier guaranteed its products (each was around $500) for 1 year, and the products were excellent quality, not a single problem in over 6 months with any customers. And even if there was a problem, the supplier would offer me a full refund on the kit just if the customer sent us photos of it not working.

    Hey GiorgioB,

    We Indians are using China products (not our choice though because the govt is killing all Indian products by not regulating the Chinese products here) and none are of the so-called top quality as you mention. May be those Chinese are giving you the real (made-in-Japan-ONLY) Japanese products with a stamp of made-in-China. :D

    Don't call others noob unless you probe deeper into the matter and understand why everyone is complaining about your Chinese products everywhere in the world.


    Sorry to any Chinese friends here on BHW, but I am stating the facts here (may be it's my own solo opinion here).



    And about supplying the photos of non-working made in China CFL light bulbs, I am willing to send over 100+ pics to the supplier any time! :D:D:D

    P.S.:

    Of course, I admire all other things that are Chinese, Bruce Lee the most:D, but their products are not up to the International standards...

    I know what you mean, and I wasn't calling you a noob. What I mean is that if the "made in china" products sold in india are terrible quality, it is not the Chinese supplier who is incompetent, it is the importer (whatever nationality) who is :
    1- being too greedy and telling the chinese supplier to provide the cheapest products
    2- being a noob and getting f*cked by the chinese supplier, or even just not communicating clearly enough (that happens a lot more than we would imagine)

    As I said, the products I was referring to are CCTV camera kits, and our supplier guaranteed them for 1 year and we never had a single problem with them. Its important to dissociate a good/bad importer from a good/bad supplier. Suppliers usually produce what the importer asks for.

    I know how hard the Chinese work and I don't see any thing wrong in them mimicking the high-priced items that are out of reach of the common man. But I also think that their worst quality still has blind takers in our much greedier politicians (many, not all).

    May be we should exchange some of those Chinese worker, chefs, and martial artists with some of our politicians. :D

    Yeah for sure.. I mean its all a question of greedy people trying to cut corners and save money on the cheap quality. That's really a shame but unfortuantely you see that in every sector. and for sure Jackie Chan would make a good president!! If schwarzenegger is governor of cali.. i don't see why not

    (had an awesome photo of jackie chan here but my computer is being buggy and not letting me place the photo :( )

    Here is how it works at our place with the "cheaper" Chinese made goods concerning warranty: 1 week replacement, if there is no visible damage from dropping, water damage etc etc. Dead pixels are not covered, neither are accessories like chargers

    Problem is simple: People want to buy cheaper and cheaper and the suppliers will use any and all means to make it cheaper hence the low quality of most items. You can buy great products in China - for a price. Is this the fault of Chinese manufacturers ? Of course not.

    But it's not all bad. Some of the stuff you can buy here is pretty decent quality for a very low price. And what can go wrong with a TPU case for a Samsung Galaxy S3 or an iphone 4 that you buy for like 30 or 40 cent ?

    All of my appliances ( small ones anyways ) are made in china. Some of them are already a few years old and see daily service ( electric water kettle for example ). Paid like $8.50 for it.
