    hello guys
    Am thinking of purchasing some trendy clothes from china my worry is that the clothes might not be authetic having come across an online store in the u.s selling the items i have my doubts. there is a guy i met in a certain forum working in a large fabric store or shop in china willing to make the items
    i need suggestions from experienced members is this guy taking me for a ride since he says he is affiliated with the company and has no proof
    how do i pay him without being scammed
    how do i ensure i get the right items.
    shipping do i pay or he does
    p.s i have never done business with the chinese have heard so much about them
    thanks would appreciate to hear your thoughts

    Ask him to pay with paypal or ask him to afiliate to aliexpress and you will pay with escrow in order to be protected. Never ever pay via WE or bank transfer.
    Buy small quantities fisrt so see the quality.

    I have been burned with clothing retailers in China before. Do not buy in bulk for your first order. Request samples to verify quality.

    If you are purchasing branded then it's safe to say that they won't be authentic.

    I'm not too sure about payment. However, the first thing you should do is ask for a sample so you can check the quality of the fabrics and what not, sometimes the supplier will pay shipping on this but most likely you will have to pay it, shouldn't be much though.

    They make such a high quality copy so it's hard to tell its a actually a copy from the original. Be aware! I have bad exp. with those ppl. They will lie you in the eyes just to get your money and then run away.
