Good China Shopping Sites

Here is a list of good China sites. I will add more details soon.

These sites are platforms, similar to eBay, you have individual sellers. When you buy 3 items you might buy it from 3 different sellers. They are quite safe when you buy through their sales and payment system:
www.aliexpress.com
www.dhgate.com

This list are companies, so when you buy several different items there is just one seller. Those sites are also a few years in business and are safe to use:
www.banggood.com
www.dhgate.com
www.dx.com
www.eachbuyer.com
www.everbuying.net
www.focalprice.com
www.gearbest.com
www.geekbuying.com
www.lightinthebox.com
www.pandawill.com
www.seeedstudio.com
www.sunsky-online.com
www.tinydeal.com
www.tomtop.com
www.tvc-mall.com

And one Hong Kong store, this is also a direct sales store:
www.expansys.com.hk
If you are just interested in prices in Hong Kong you can check www.price.com.hk

There are also many retails websites in China that server the local market in China, a few examples, of course they are only in Chinese:
www.gome.com.cn
www.jd.com
www.suning.com
www.taobao.com
www.tmall.com

(I am not associated with any of those sites)

You know a good site I should add? Leave a comment here…..

  1. Folks, just follow the golden rule of commerce, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!” Simple as that, and please don’t make a fool out of yourselves! ;)
    Even if it costs a few extra dollars, buy only from well established stores like Amazon DotCom, eBay DotCom, or BangGood DotCom, etc… otherwise you WILL make a fool of out yourselves!! ;D

    • I am skeptical. They write ‘established in 2012‘ but the website was only registered 2018-04-21. Their English writing does not make much sense. They write about manufactorer but mean retail or repair shop.

      They write Hong Kong and China, but there is no Hong Kong address.

      Their head image has obviously a Photoshopped company name:

      I would not feel good here.

  2. Something else I have found with eBay and AliBaba. Many of the sellers advertise fake items. Yes, you will get the item, but it will be fake. Neither eBay nor AliBaba administration will do anything about it.

    Areas where I have found problems are:

    Seeds of non-existent plants: rainbow coloured roses, blue watermelons, and so on. You will get a packet of grass or radish seeds, and by the time you germinate them it will be too late to even leave negative feedback.

    Silk: there are thousands of silk items listed, nearly all of them have no silk content. “Genuine Thai Silk” is eBay speak for “100% polyester”.

    Opals: again, thousands of listings with almost none being real opal. Mostly plastics or other synthetics. I think the sellers believe that opal is a colour rather than a gemstone.

    • Alibaba usually protects the seller no matter what. You know the Alibaba story… and the 40 thieves…

      eBay has a item not as described complain procedure. But it can be tricky to achieve success. Your seed example is a classic. You will have time-out before you even know.

      With other products, for example fake SD cards, the (usually Chinese) seller will ask you to cancel the report and promises you anything you want to hear. Till you cancel the claim, then you don’t hear from them again. A closed claim can’t be reopened. They know the eBay system very well.

      My advise with eBay is, do not hesitate. File your claim and ignore all sellers responses and end the claim as soon as you can.

          • Hello i’m in China i buy materials to runbestbuy, i understand now it’s a scam , Can i go to see the police their?I transfer money by bank .
            I have name of the people and account number and bank.

          • You can try. I doubt you will ever see your money again, or the goods you paid for, but it is worth a try if you are in China anyway.

            I suggest you print out everything, the website, the order page, the bank details, everything. Again, to get money back is very unlikely. Chinese police will usually not help when foreigners are involved.

            To warn others, can you let us know what you bought and the amount?

    • Sunsky-online is a not scam.
      But selling a duplicate of phone and parts. Once you order, no matter the goods are bad or damaged, you won’t get any other goods are refund. Money will be gone.
      So, don’t try.
