Well it is all depend what you are buying.
It seems like that part of Dh is pretty well cleaned up ,so no Vero.
I think same rules apply as the other side. Look at feedback and talk to the seller before purchase.
QQ cannot be recommended enough times!

Only as far as the research you do to find a product are they reliable.

You need to look at your market, selling platform and go from there.

Standards will vary between suppliers.

As for the paypal angle, you might be better to look at using a credit card. gives you a buffer for any failure. Preferable not to use paypal associated with an ebay account too

Actually most of them are agents or private seller,not factory directly.As you know,the factory will only face to big order and big customer or any OEM order.

They won't sell the items as small quantity by this way ,they have to protect their big customer.If they also do the small wholesale business at lower price,their big customer will reject .

They sell in bulk though. You cant make a small purchase on that webpage by any means. Are they still a middle man?

Thanks teedon.

i noticed that most of the supplier in normal DHgate buy the product's from there,and then resell it in smaller quantity(like 50/100pcs)

im thinking to make a big order from the DHgate factory(most of them are accepting the quantity i want to order)

but as im about to spend that match money at once i like to know if its safe or not.

Specialy when most of the factorys giving the 28days dispatch time ,i mean in 28 days they deffinitly can withdraw the money in different bank accounts.

i actually cant pay by my CC as the amount im about to pay is more than the limit i have in my CC

so i have the option bank transfer or western union.

has anybody order from thet site before??if yes what you think of it??

about the item of course its NOT Vero,specially in that quantity .

dh gate is full of ⊗⊗⊗⊗ nothing real on there i would adivise not to used western union if you gonna buy off dh gate, if you gonna buy make sure you find good supplier with good feedback and also have good chat with them on the chatbox, i would used your credit card or debit card as i see that the safe option, you can also used paypal on there which i have done in the past but then i used my debit card as it was better for me as i didnt want paypal knowing what i was buying as it well know for selling alot of ⊗⊗⊗⊗, only problem you get if you buy off there, if you sell on ebay and you get one complaint off the buyers then that it for your ebay and paypal account boom it over, as i used dh gate few times but you just got to look to for the right people on there, it safe but somtimes you end up with alot of good that dont work and you will find it hard to get your money back from them, but yes it safe but be careful what you buy and where you sell it

If you are going to spend this kind of money do you think it will get held in custom from being so large?

Go to alibaba or globalsources to find the big factory or you can go to china to attend china cartonfair to source more good stuff by yourself.

For the payment term,you may test a sample or small order and then go for big order,for big order,you may use deposit and then balance against B/L copy or balance against inspection the goods.

There are still many uk business people make a lot of profit from china and there are many ways to go.

But you need to take time to know more.

Remember that anything you buy from china always request request seller to ship it via EMS only not by dhl or fed ex or ups. I learned it by experience. EMS is a little extra shipping cost by 100 % sure you will get it. all the others have a chance to be held by border custom petrol. Ask your to use EMS only.

I had plenty of bad experiences with dhgate. And don't try to sell the items you get as authentic because you can easily tell they are f*ke

your welcome green lion i know what your saying, but i think they all same normal or factory dh gate, it doesnt matter what you buy on there ⊗⊗⊗⊗ or not, i still got my goods through customs even dhl which i wouldnt recommend because you end up paying customs fees, if customs want to hold yours good they will, always used EMS it take round week about 8days get to you in the uk but i do agree with GTB 28 days is way to long for good to be shipped to you when you can find somone which can shipped in 2days with big stock and be with you in a week with no problem with EMS, but always tell the supplier you want EMS even if they say they will shipped DHL, FED EX, they will shipped with ems why because they want your money and they will be happy to shipped by ems but glad to give you any advise GREEN LION

This is absolutely true. I have several good products I buy from DHgate. In fact on most days I make more in one day than I did working full time in a week when fully stocked.

Your mentality certainly changes as I'm actually able to afford things I've always wanted and couldn't when working for someone else. It does take time to find your niche, but is well worth it.

Hi tylamay , 28 days is dispatch time not shipping time,shipping time is still 7-8 days with ems or for BIG/BULKY orders Equick 8-10 days
28 days dispatch time because they making your order in the factory the way you want it.

for example if you want to put your own logo/brand on a product they do it for you.
and another different with normal DHgate is the price of course.you can Save alot of money if you buy from the factory site(normally minimum order of 1000pcs)

Ok nothing special i remember ordering the ipod nanos for me and friends few years back.

They were f a k e and took 2 weeks to come with me paying customs on top. Lol.

If your sourcing goods there dont expect the electros etc to be authentic but for rest they might be good.

Peace.
