About StartBuyingInChina.com

Hi, I’m Bastiaan de Koning. I’m from the Netherlands and I am an Internet Entrepreneur.

I’ve been buying online products all over the world for more than 20 years now. And I’m buying products from China since 2008. In 2013, I started StartBuyingInChina.com. Since then I create multiple sites about Chinese stores like StartBuyingInChina, BestChinaShoppingDeals for coupons and discounts and the SafeBuyingInChinaCourse, for all the tips about buying from China.

Since then, I’ve helped over five hundred thousand potential China buyers all over the world. My first eBook, ‘7 biggest mistakes people make when they start buying in China,’ has been downloaded around 10.000 times.

(My fulltime company is Roadmap2Independence. I help (Dutch) entrepreneurs to build their internet business based on their knowledge and business.)

    1. Hi, Thank tyou for your interest, The site you mention is located in Las Vegas and is not a Chinese store. This does not fit this site. Have a nice day.

  2. hi Boris: I would like to send you my e-mails to Rosewholesale and a seller bwvmjtzn.xyz who Rosewholesale claims is not on their web-site, even though the seller is. I’ve sent e-mails stating the exact page number where the seller is located on their web-site. The seller of course, is not responding & Rosewholesale has completely stopped respond responding. I really feel this matter deserves attention. Thank-you. Angie Visser

    1. Hi that’s a strange story Angie, I didn’t know Rosewholesale had sellers or resellers on their site.
      Rosewholesale is part of Sammydress and some more companies. Did they solve this problem yet?

    I tried to answer the email today Saturday the 4/10, but it was closed, could not respond to the email.

    I think that they behaved disgracefully.
