Hello Boris. I am quite new to the Chinese online shopping. I intend making use of 1688 .com, ordering from different manufacturers. How genuine is this site. How about freeshoppinginchina .com. I also need an authentic purchase agent alongside few shipping tips. Please help!!!
Hi Debs, The first 1688 is an Alibaba site but only in Chinese. The other url doesn’t work.
Are you kidding me?!? AliExpress is a total scam. They will take your money and not return yours. They have a two month average ship time. We have learned to stay away from any companies that do not have phone contacts. They have put us in “appeal”twice in five weeks. Look at the 300 plus complaints against them on Oberlo. Oberlo and Wish are reportedly dropping them. We do know for a fact PayPal has dropped them. BBB rating is awful. Please stay away if your customers are important to you!! I will not give our store name as we have heard of several wholesalers who say Ali can do great damage if you complain about them. This site needs to do more research before recommending a company.
AliExpress is a market, not one store. You deal with independent retailers under one company name. I used the money back guarantee multiple times. Sorry to hear you had such bad experiences. BTW I had a very bad experience with Wish… It took months before I got my money back, because they said they didn’t receive my payment, although it was paid…
I bought from Rotita.com a year ago and quality was super bad, pieces to wear a couple of times and dispose and some unwearable, size was odd, and many items didn’t look as the image in the website. Knitted clothes are super super small and not simetrical shape.
Gearbest is added now 😉
Ever heard of joom China is it legit
http://wholesalebuyonline.com/. this site claimed that they are wholesaler from china and selling I phone in very cheap price so how can i know this is real or fake .. i have read many review and seems okay so please guide.
4.Bank account/Debit card/Credit card
Is dresslily a fake online site
Have you heard anything about Hahabag.ru?
No, .ru is a Russian site.
I have seen the list of the online stores you published on this site but my question is, are theses stores retail or wholesale supplier’s stores? Because some stores are retail stores but claim to be wholesale suppliers.
Good question. All these Chinses stores are retail. But many retail sites also sell wholesale, with wholesale discounts. If you want specific wholesale, try Alibaba.
Thanks for your response, you are doing a wonderful job here. In fact, you are a great gift to humanity. I wish you well.
I want share my shopping experience on DHgate.
The experience is amazing.
No one can as DHgate.
Hi, I’m not sure how often this site is updated but I wanted to ask if anyone has ever done business with the website sell-to . com? There’s virtually no legal information on the site and the only way to contact whoever runs it is through a basic contact us form which is linked to a gmail account. The reason I’m suspicious is they have a laptop I’ve been looking everywhere for but it’s priced at $499 which is almost half the retail markup in America (around $999 – 1,200). The explanation they give is that they get their products directly from the manufacturer so there are no extra fees. Does that sound legit or scammy?
Half the retail price? Fake, scam. I checked, there is no payment information available. you need to check in first.
Don’t buy here.
As someone who is naturally cautious of all things “online”, I took the plunge with Banggood, the experience was amazingly easy and the first items arrived within 2 weeks. I live in Perth Australia. Can’t wait to buy again.
Great to hear!!
Years ago I bought many things from Aliexpress, everything always came. But then I got 15 payments on my Visa card to various chinese stores. all at the same day and none were from me. Visa took care of it all, but I stopped dealing with Aliexpress. Obviously my credit card information was taken from Aliexpress. I could not get anywhere with them.

A month shipping time ?! God , It is too slow . Why not have a try with Junfeng ? Junfeng is an International Express Agent in China, they work with DHL / EMS / UPS , and have privilege so that they can mail parcels in a few days by DHL / EMS / UPS . I do often buy things from China on Taobao , I mail my items to Junfeng , then they mail to me . I just pay for the freight to Junfeng , my parcel will arrive in a few days . It is fast and safe . I recommend you to have a try with a little shop . First you can go to know about them .
Here is their page telling about how to shop on Taobao and how to mail by Junfeng.
For buying and shipping internationally from Chinese websites like Taobao, JD.com, Tmall, 1688.com, Dangdang, Paipai and so on, use Chinaebuys at http://www.chinaebuys.com.

It’s super easy and super fast. Visit Chinaebuys.com to open the door to buying from all Chinese websites!
What the hell? Is this a total Scam Control? You should be ashamed of yourself for having to actually make a fake website saying that you’re legit. Shame on you for stealing people’s ideas and money. Don’t ever buy from these companies..
That’s pretty harsh.
If you check my blogs I give you all kind of information on how to recognize fake websites.
There is a big difference between fake sites & scam vs bad customer service. I can filter for the first, not the second.
If you are not satisfied with a store, leave a review. And don’t buy at these stores anymore. And if you hate all Chinese stores, leave them.
(BTW your FB group doesn’t accept my comments. And If people send in comments twice, they get an error, I don’t need spam on my site 😉 )
I Ordered almost 100 items from aliexpress. All items arrived, albeit with about a month delivery time. i live in europe belgium
Good to hear! Thanks
Sammydress takes a month but all your items arrive in the right size and good condition.
I have been ordering from Aliexpress for the past two year and ordered heaps of items from different stores. There was only one time that an item didn’t arrive and I did get my money back.
Yes you have to be careful with what you order (you get what you pay for) so look at the item carefully and if the photo of the dress for example looks really expensive but the price is only a few dollars then it’s reasonable to think that the quality isn’t going to be that great. I have bought clothes and the quality is exactly what I thought it was going to be which was good.
Give Aliexpress a chance……I have never had trouble with them.
I can say some words about GearBest and GeekBuying. I’ve Ordered a phone from GearBest(it was marcked as ‘In Stock’) and luckily payed it over PayPal(very good service), first I had to wait for all the dispatch term, then when I wrote them, they said it is out of stock, and advised to wait or they will refund as quickly as they can. I chose the second option, but the money were not refunded until I opened a dispute on PayPal. So this took me about a month! Then I ordered the same phone from GeekBuying, I was tought, so at first I e-mailed them and asked if the phone is in stock- they said it was, so I made an order, now I wait for two weeks, but the phone is not dispatched and they ignore my messages.
SO I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND YOU ANY OF THESE SHOPS! BE CAREFUL!
Geadbest and Geekbuying are stores from different companies. And they should work real. Sorry to hear you had these bad experiences.
Do you have any suggestion as to how to get my money back from Rosegal.com for clothes I paid for but never received?
Reseal.com said they will issue a refund (which is not possible on a debit card, my mistake for using it) and then they close the ticket and stop communicating. All other tickets I open, they ignore.
Why did they close the ticket? Sending an email might help?
Because that IS HOW THEY ARE. They say they will give a refund and then they cut off communication.
Sammydresses is one of the most fake site.as i am buying a cloth from india it tame almost 15 days and dont even give the tracking no.of my item.its the most fake website i have ever seen realy
Hi, sorry to hear. 15 days is not too long. And most of the time I always get tracking info. Did you contact them through the complaint-service?
Yeah but still i dont receive any update of the parcell till now they dont give anything. I positively think that they are fake
I bought many products at SammyDress and they are not fake. I’m sorry to hear you have these bad experiences, you should contact them about that. Wish you more ‘luck’ next time 😉
We buy from china with regular bases,and we tried maybe 5 mail forwarding companies but we stayed with Tip Trans,
As they offer free china address and shipping with DHL cost only something about 8$.
Compare prices at:
I don’t think forwarding companies work with regular Chinese stores. If you are dealing with Taobao, TMall, Amazon, ebay, FCACHina, Paipai this is a great tip. Thanks.
Aliexpress.com doesn’t control sellers at all.
At aliexpress website you can find Product ID: 32504107080. In “product description” section you have -> please buy it on “www.goxsell.com”.
This means that seller -> “my-camera-drone” it is a fraudster.
Aliexpress is a very iffy store. I looked into that place a lot and it is literally gambling. You MIGHT get what you order, and there is an equal chance you will get nothing. I like the sites where people take photos of what they received, and you can see the real deal.
AliExpress is not a real store, but a marketplace. A portal to 1000s of little and bigger chinese stores/manufactories. You need to check the seller too indeed.
Ordered almost 30 items from aliexpress. All items arrived, albeit with about a month delivery time.
Be carefull with www . Goxsel . com. They are deceiving people from around the world.
The site is no longer active. For what I can still see, they are scammers indeed.
It is active ‘goxsel.com’ . Wait 5 seconds to load website to your browser. I have build this blog against goxsell.com. They didn’t send my goods and didn’t refund. I lost 1500 $.
Goxsell.com -> real scam website.
goxsel.com -> my blog
There is a difference in double ‘L’ in website name.
Ohh I see, I missed the extra ‘l’. Sorry to hear you lost so much money!
At this store they are selling low priced iPhones, that isn’t trustworthy. And they say they accept many payment options according to the logos at the bottom of the page. But when you check for payment options you’ll see only Western union and bank transfers… Bad, bad…
Better to check this blog post! Avoiding fake Chinese stores
Any idea how to stop their activity ?
Their website, chat and the whole trading is working without any consequences.
I think you have done a lot already. You cannot prevent scammers, it’s better to educate people to avoid them. I hope StartBuyingInChina.com can do such a thing.
I started buying from Aliexpress about 6 months ago. You can relly find there some very nice items for a very affordable prices if you search thoroughly.
I recently started making wreaths. I have my business license. I live in the US. I’m looking for mesh, ribbon, floral arrangements, decorative sprays, seasonal ornaments but also other ornaments for decorating, decorative cords etc. Please help me find a website that is legitimate, great low pricing.
Hi Sarah, Success with your business.
We have listed 100 legit Chinese stores here. We don’t have info on specific products, that’s not possible to maintain. For what you are looking for, I would suggest to start at general stores like: AliExpress.
Antelife.com STOLE MY MONEY STOLE MY MONEY STOLE MY MONEY

here is my history with me and antelife… if its posible to put here… i am not lying.
Sorry to hear. I hope your comment will add to improve their service. And hopefully they will solve this dispute with you. Good luck!
rosegal and romwe are terrible sites . They steal images from other websites and designers and put a very low price on the product . When you finally receive the garment it’s often an extremely low quality and hideous replica . I’ve had Halloween costumes made of better material. When you email them about the product not matching the picture they’ll say “oh it’s because all monitors have different settings so colors might be off.” They have very terrible business standards.
Hi Emma, Thank you for your comment.
Rosegal and Romwe are stores from different owners. What you described is something more Chinese stores do. They should upgrade their quality standards.
I am wondering why Tmart is included, and even rated very high on this site, despite too many serious complains on reviews from buyers all around the world
Thank you for your concerns.
As far as we dealt with TMart it is a legitimate store.
If you have personally ordered at Tmart, we would love to hear your experiences and or read your review.
o, I might have judged too quickly, sorry about that.
No problem. A lot of people only complain on the Internet. Writing positive reviews is just less common. So reading online reviews is good, but can also be distracting. If you search for other stores’s reviews you will find a lot of negative reviews too.
I hope your experiences will be good though 😉
Very mature reactions you both; also very uncommon on the inter-webs 😉
There is still hope! 😀
*kisses the ground*
I’ve been a long time buyer from china with DHgate and Aliexpress. But the quality of the products in aliexpress have gone down a lot. I’ve had to return many things.
As you wrote in your other comment. It all depends on the quality and professionalism of the reseller.
we recently launched a new e-commerce business in my country in Africa, we intend to add the service of buying direct from China in the site. Now i am searching for a reliable chinese online store that offers cheap quality products to partner with so that all their product will be sold on my site, you have done well by display many legitimate store, …any specific recommendation for me?
(dont want to mention my countrys or website name, because some of our citizens frequent your site)
Good luck with your site. If you want to implement stores, that’s a difficult task, especially importing the product data. Although, it can be done.
I cannot recommend any stores, just because I don’t know what you are looking for. You found the list with 110 chinese stores too. Try the stores that suits you best and contact them. If the deliver the service you want to deliver, than these stores might be an option.
SABABUY .COM not only china products but one of the best in prices and service .
i buy alot from there .
This is an agent and not actually a store. I have no experience with them.
Can you please tell me what stores are good for buying sterling silver
jewelry. Every piece of sterling I have bought from China stores on ebay has been fake.
I don’t know how they keep getting away with it.
Hi, I know little about silver. Vancaro is one of the jewelry stores I have listed. But you must check yourself to see if they sell real silver. Start with small orders.
Aliexpress has many fake silver. but depends on the seller reputation.
Where can I buy necklace, phones, powerbanks and inverter at a cheaper rate.
the following website is cheater fake scam: taobao-technology.com
Based on my checklist, I agree!
Nice collection of online shopping sites.
These are really some very good sites to shop online
DealExtreme prices have gone very high compared to aliexpress. Their popularity has let them increase their prices to almost the same as in the stores in my country. So why wait 2 months to get my package from dx if im only saving a 10-15%…..
Which online stores will you recommend for ladies trouser and skirt suits please.
Above you can find the fashion stores we recommend. You can find more legitimate China stores here
Thanks but I need a specific recommendation please. Been checking all.
Hi Ola. We supply information about legitimate Chinese shops, not individual product categories or requests. That’s logistically impossible.
Which online shop would you recommend for African Countries?
Which online shop would you recommend to purchase good quality phones?
Hi, TMart or DealExtreme are good.
Hello what is your recommendation for Chinavasion Chinese store?
Chinavasion is a legitimate shop. Please check this China store list.
hi Boris, iam from Mauritius,i want to buy an onkyo Receiver 7.2,in china,i got two shops,but when i ask for certificate of conformity,no answer.could you tell me if the company named Wain import,and shakone home theatre company are trusted companies or shops?
May be you can recommend me some trusted shops[ for personal use]
Hi Milka, I don’t know the stores you mention. Wainimport looks neat, but the prices are too low, although they are higher dan a regular fake store. NO reviews can be found about this shop. I suggest to be cautious. Trusted shops cane found here.
Which online shop would you recommend for me to purchase good quality, cheap clothing to resell on my own web page? Thank you in advance for you expertise!
What about gearbest? I think that’s a pretty reliable one as well
hi Thanks for the Comprehensive list of websites in china where one can buy from. Please i stay in Nigeria West Africa so i want to buy a laptop power bank because of unstable power supply here. I only have checked this site Taobao but i don’t know if they will ship outside of china as the items they have are all in Chinese Currency and language
Hi Vincent, for Taobao you need an agent that will ship it to you, which makes it more expensive. Otherwise I would suggest AliExpress or TMart.
Thank you for taking as much time as required in making this enlightening site more effortlessness to your capable. Pls I need to inquire as to whether shoppingbag.pk is Real or fake site.
Thanks I await your response.
Hi Mumtaz, This is a Pakistan site. Looks real but I have insufficient information to confirm this site.
easybuy69.com, all sites are well designed & user friendly.
This site is from Bangladesh and not China.
hello boris im looking for a great replica website with quality name brand footwear and clothing.please help
Not sure, this site was mentioned last weekend: diybrands.com. The number of brands suggest it must be replicas.
Let me know what you think.
Hi Boris, what do you know anything about diybrands.co website? Is it fake?
Hi Calvin, Poorly made website. This one is interesting. I haven’t seen a site like this before. DIYbrands = Do it yourself brands. And there are too many non Chinese brands to have in stock. I think this site is real but it is selling copies (counterfeit). You order the product and then they make a perfect copy for you. Buy with care and test them with a smaller order.
I saw your review about MiniInTheBox…
I made on 12/12/2014 an order with the number 1412120416587507 on MiniInTheBox website. .
On your website it shows that the order it was send on the 15 /12/2014, but until now I didn´t received anything. The delivery time promiss ir was 20 Days!
Tracking Number: SWP9922936008
Then have no costumer line and any email ou question you ask, then just send an auto repply
There’s no option op my site to check your orders at Miniinthebox. But 20 days is that long. I suggest to keep contacting Miniinthebox directly.
Pls, let me know if buyneto.com is fake or not.
Seems like a legitimate US site to me….
Good dya. Boris could you please check the following sites electronicsecuritydataltd.org
and fsafecare.com? What do you recommend are they trustworthy site?
Thanks in advance
You asked about fsafecare in your previous comment. It’s fake.
The other site you mention is not a Chinese site, but I think they are fake too. The prices are too low. I cannot confirm. The site is created 6 months ago and is pretty new. Many pages aren’t completed. So I checked the address. Nice home, but no office 😉
I wonder for one site name is to2c is it real because they offer few phones i was watch cheaper about 20 € then other sites and that is confused to me 🙁 because it would be my first bought of phone from china 🙂
so i was wonder could u help me and answer me 😀
thx in advance
Seems like a real site to me. They pass the test. They only sell Chinese phones. Please check my previous blogs about buying phones.
Thx u Boris on ur reply 🙂
and i know that r chinese phones 🙂 bc they r better then copy they made
i was look 2 phones to buy asus zenfone and coolpad f1
both look good after i was read bout them 🙂 but site was wonder me 😀 bc to2c giving phones cheaper then other sites bout 20 € and that was confused me 😀 and i was looking answer on few sites 😀
anyway thx u and have a nice day
Hi Mario, a fake site offers products for just 30% or less from the original price. 20 euro off isn’t a big deal. For what I can tell, To2C is a legitimate site. They offer Paypal as payment system. A fake site will never do this, because you have a refund policy with Paypal if you do not get your products. That’s why fake sites always uses Western Union.
thx u 🙂
Hello Boris,please kindly i want to know whether 234buy.com, online shop is genuine to buy from them
Looks like a genuine site to me. They pass the test.
thanks so much brother Boris,may you continue to do the good job.God Bless U
Good day. My name is Rashad and I am from Azerbaijan. I am planning to buy Apple ipad air 2 128gb and Apple iPhone 6 Plus 5.5 inch-64GB from China. And current I am getting al of emails from different kind of companies (persons) suggestions in accordance with buy above products to incredible , funny prices. And acctually some of them have provided me with their certificates and licenses about legality.
So dear Mr. Boris what do you think about and which company (website) do you advice to me order above products with trustable?
I think you will understand me.
In prior I am deeply gratitude to you.
Have a nice time.
It’s impossible to buy legally original Apple products in China for low prices. The changes are very high that these ‘original’ products are fake or that the products will never arrive. I cannot provide you any trustworthy site with genuine cheap Apple products.
Please see this article and this one.
Check your sites or offers with the tips written in these blogs. They will probably fail the test…
(I’ve deleted your personal skype+mobile data)
thank you Boris for the list, but fast question do you recommended any package consolidation service in china ?
I think you refer to more advanced ways of importing? What specific service do you mean? Can you please elaborate a little?
Thank you very much for reply, I will usually purchase a lot from chinese websites. I tried buyincoins – aliexpress – eBay and to be honest and share my experience, what I do is the following:
First find seller with a very good inventory list then choose what I need and after that contact him to get special shipping price ( which I usually pay using PayPal ) and out of eBay or aliexpress invoice system.
Now I face some issues if I found some items with seller and another with another seller, if I want to ship them directly to Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ( where I live right now ) it will cost me about $100 or $200 using DHL or FedEx. My other option is to ship it to my US address with free shipping option ( without tracking number ). The chance to loose it is high, then consolidate the shipment there and ship it to my address as one package and that will decrease the shipping fee, but still its high.
What I was looking is company offering package consolidation and forwarding service like Yoybuy. In china you can’t find list of companies doing this 🙁
Sorry for the length
What you do is very advanced to most readers I presume.
I haven’t seen a packager for Chinese products yet. But this doesn’t mean there aren’t any. There are some agents for Taobao. I wrote about it here.
I do not think they offer the service you want. But maybe you can contact them and ask them if they can help you.
From your comment I understand there is no free shipping to KSA? Have you contacted Fedex or DHL, they might know an answer.
Good luck and keep me posted.
Boris, awesome list…thanks so much for taking the time to put it together for all of us!
There’s one that you may want to add to your list, and that’s http://www.gearbest.com. While they are similar to the other sites, a very good friend of mine has ordered a lot of product from them, and they’ve even given him products to review on Youtube. As far as I can tell, they pass the test you listed above, but of course the final decision is up to you. Again, thanks for the list! 🙂
Thank you for the compliments!
I have no experience with Gearbest. But they do qualify as a legitimate shop. So i’ve listed them on the the full list of Chinese shops.
Your article was a blessing in disguise for a first timer like me. Could you please tell me if bluelans.com is a genuine place to buy stuff? I found their collection pretty good and cheap.
thank you and regards…!
This is one of the many shops I haven’t seen before. But it seems legitimate to me. They pass the test.
thank you…i need your feedback on the following sites.i found some pretty cool clothes at jaw dropping prices but trying to exercise some caution.the sites are:
thank you and regards…!
It is good your do your checkings on sites you don’t know. I appreciate that!
Please check the link in my latest comment to you, it will help you identify a legitimate shop yourself.
For these 4 shops, they all seems to real to me.
hi, just wanted to inform you to add another site to your blocklist. bluelans.com seems legitimate at first.i tried using paypal a couple of times and fortunately my suspicions aroused when despite cancelling some of the items which they claimed was the reason why i could not access paypal i still could not use the same.it offers paypal at a payment option but ultimately sites some reason or another to the user to switch to western union as the only other option left.
This site seems legitimate to me. One of the criteria for a fake site is they sell very expensive products for very cheap prices. This site has only very cheap products. It doesn’t make sense to create a fraud site if they cannot make a huge profit on the products.
But to test them, I just bought some earings for my daughter and paid with the Paypal express checkout system. China post without tracking. Everything works fine so far. It’s already been paid and I have a order confirmation. So far, so good….
I did receive the earrings after 4 weeks. Everything was okay, one strange mistake. They sent me 2 pairs of the same earrings.
cheap prices and free delivery without a tracking number seems too good to be true.please do let me know when the earrings reach you.thank you and regards! 🙂
Hello! You have done a great job here! 😀
I want to know if this site is real and if you would recommend me this site? rayflectorsunglasses.com
I hope you can help me!
I will be waiting your answer, thank you!
Hi Javiera, The site is an English / London web shop. Seems to be real. But it is not something to be discussed on StartBuyingInChina.
Good luck, Boris
Best way to start your shopping experience is to have somebody who you can trust and who has had personal experience shopping from China. I was lucky to have a friend recommend some sites. You could find some price differences between them but in overall I believe that Focalprice offers competitive prices and most important thing for me is Customer service. I had few problems but they reacted promptly and solved issues to my satisfaction.
I was hesitating to approve your comment. I agree with what you say about recommendations. But it was a bit too much pro FocalPrice. That’s why I deleted the links you added.
PLEASE I WANT TO KNOW IF THIS SITE IS REAL WWW. TOP-HUAYI.COM
Perfectly fake!! No prices, No shop name, Payment only by money transfer and a delivery within 3-5 days worldwide. This is just impossible…
Please help me find a site that sells 3d led tv .
I seldom see shops that sell 3d Led TV’s. I think shipping of a single TV worldwide is too expensive and risky. I did see some tv’s on AliExpress.
Interesting article, but for a person who is totally new to online china market it becomes difficult to check for the authenticity of these sites. If you go to the facebook pages of certain sites like sammy dresses, DH gate, Aliexpress, light in the box, Mini in the box etc, people have described them as fake and unreliable. So how to decide? is there any other way? Did you check for yourself if the sites listed here are legit?
Hi Swati, the shops on this list are reliable and real.
This doesn’t mean there are no mistakes made. People who have a bad experience do complain more often.
If you want to see if a shop is fake or not, these articles will do:

8 Times looking through the eyes of a scammer
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Thank you for taking your time in creating this informative site more grace to your able. Pls I want to ask if http://commidities.net is real or fake website.
Thanks I await your response.
As far as I can check it is real, but a smaller independent company.
If you would like to know how to check a site if it is real or not, see this blog: https://www.startbuyinginchina.com/fake-chinese-shopping-sites-black-list/
I live in Gaborone,Botswana an I have recently had quite some interest on buying online and 3 times I have bought stuff from 3 different suppliers on Alibaba, an it came through,no complaints,but I must say I wasn’t even aware I needed to know so much about buying from China! Your site is very helpful, it opened my eyes,I thank you very much. Please be kind enough to check hbxdt.en.alibaba.com for me. The site has very eye catching beautiful heels for women, too good to be true maybe. My insticts are just telling me to further inqure about them. I tried to google to find reviews of the site and customer service,haven’t found any, I hope you will be able to assist.
Thank you for the complements. I’m happy to hear you already have had good experiences. This is just what should be 😉
I haven’t mentioned Alibaba before, since it was all Chinese written. I see it is in English too. Next week I can check the page you mentioned. The thing I liketo say about Alibaba is the same as AliExpress: You are dealing with Chinese manufactories directly. Alibaba/AliExpress are just portals. Always look for references made by other customers.
Good afternoon, first I would like to congratulate you for the excellent site. I need a site that provides unique handsets Samsung handsets and documents for submission to Apple Brazil, can you help me? Thank you so much.
Hi Cleverson, thanks for the compliment.
I’d like to help you, but I don’t understand your questions. Are you looking for original Samsung handsets, or Samsung compatible? And what do you mean with submission to Apple Brazil?
I’m sorry, my English is not very good. I want to sell here in Brazil the original and need to know where to buy iPhones? Also need to know about the Samsung Galaxys?
Now I see. Buying (in retail) legal original brands like iPhone or Samsung for a lower price than in your country is almost impossible. The prices of originals in China are the same. Please check this blog: https://www.startbuyinginchina.com/alternatives-buying-chinese-brand-smart-phones-part-3/.
There might be ways at underground markets or parallel import, but I have no experience with that.
Thank you for this nice list. Do you have any information about online food shops? I’m looking for online shops for chinese tea, but did not find yet?
Hi Seran, Thanks for the suggestion.
I haven’t done much research on food. Last week I found http://www.teavivre.com. It’s all about tea. I hop this will help.
I buy my goods mostly at Banggood and
Tinydeal, the Support from Banggood is better than from Tinydeal, but the prices are better on Tinydeal.
Thanks Alex, please share your experiences on Banggood Review or TinyDeal Review
Here’s a list with 86 shops. With ratings and reviews: en.pandacheck.com/shops
You have a done a great job for all the foreigner. I need your comments on DHGATE. How this website is different from aliexpress and alibaba. Further, kindly guide me about some websites where i can buy jewelry and watches at best rates.
Thank you for the compliment! DHgate is a reliable site. So are AliExpress and Alibaba. With Aliexpress you buy from a Chinese manufactory directly, they send the product to you. Alibaba is more for large orders.
I create a page for jewelry before. https://www.startbuyinginchina.com/best-chinese-jewelry-watches-online/
Happy Shopping, Boris
I want to buy with cheap clothing from china with free world wide shipping
and wanna resell them in my home country. can you please tell me where can I buy those clothes ,price around 5 or 6 dollars because I noticed most of the retailers in my country order their products from China and sell
around 9 or 10 dollars.
It all depends on the clothing you want to resell. A lot of shops offer free shipping. 1) talk with the resellers in your country about the Chinese suppliers they use. And ask for their experiences 2) Start with small orders and see if you like the products. If you want to buy larger quantities, you can always negotiate for lower prices.
A list of chinese clothing is found above.
A list of wholesale (B2B: large quantities and no free shipping) shops is here: https://www.startbuyinginchina.com/china-wholesale-stores/
PS AliExpress might be a good start for you. Products are very cheap and you’ll find same products with and without freeshipping with different prices.
Could you please help me were can i get All Star, or Converse shoes the latest one. Someone telling me that the is one of Somaian or Parkistan selling in bag 20 inside but she don’t want to show me this guy. Pls help.
‘Someone telling’ doesn’t sound legitimate to me…
You can try AliExpress There you’ll find Converse and AllStar sneekers.
These are the china shopping site through which you can buy the wholesale products, clothes, bags, toys, accessaries, electronics etc. they are famous top sites in online shopping
First of all nice list!
I saw a website compareimports.com. Do you have more info about them?
It looks like a comparing website.
I think It compares the biggest china wholesale website.
Compareimports is a comparing site indeed. They do not sell any goods but redirect you to Chinese retail/wholesale stores.
Kindly ask for a list of Chinese companies manufacturing branded electronics especially laptops and desktops, appreciate it.
Hi, thank you for the tip.
I’m working on a list for laptops, phones and other electronics. I’ll post it when it is finished.
Could you please send to me also a list of phones and laptops
Hi, a list of phones wouldn’t work because I don’t know if the phone works for you. Please read this blog and follow next weeks updates.
I want to come up with a list of laptops and tablets next month.
ok thanks..wish all the best.
hey guys, please i need trusted cheap sites for clothing (online shoping)
On the sidebar you’ll find multiple links to clothing categories.
hey do u know if balabalashop.ru is a legit site to shop or scam and what do u think about AliExpress?
AliExpress is a aggregation site for Chinese shops. You buy directly from Chinese manufactories. It works very well with low prices. As you can see I promote this site on my site. No worries!
About Balabalashop.ru: I don’t know this shop. The shop has a Rusian extension. Looking further: They seem not to work on Chinese hollidays. So it might be a Chinese site after all with brand products. These brand products are probably counterfeit (fake). I found this on the internet too: http://www.scamguard.com/companies/balabalashopco/ So be careful! Start with a very small order and see if it is what you want.
Please share your experiences.
really it is a good job
i tried Aliexpress.com and it is a very good and trustful online shop.
hi, sir can you help me where i can shop nba shoes? i want the real website please and cheaper price please.. hope ypu can help me.. thank you..
I’m not searching for individual products but for trustful sites. You might start at Lightinthebox or DinoDirect. These are large companies and trustful.
You are doing a great job thank you very much.
I wanted to know that if the website rm44.com, is OK or not? means is it a scam or a real online shopping store?
You can inform me on my email [deleted] as early as possible.Thank you.
UPDATE: RM44.com is scam! See this Blog
I’m not familiar with rm44.com. For what I can see. It has no real shopping name. The company is Shenzhen RM Trade Co. This is a very simple name. I think it’s just a dropshipping site without it’s own warehouse. Based on their site, it’s not a site I would recommand. If you have any experience with this site. please let me know.
Good luck, Boris
I am Matt, I like to tell you that
You have done a very good job here…….
You have help foreign people shopping in china….
I’m looking for a trusted cheap cell phone online shop
do you have some, could you kindly direct me to it.
Thank you for your compliments.
When looking for phones you can start at TMart or BangGood. If you are looking for accessories try Cellz or MiniInTheBox. I hope this will help. Good luck, and please share your experiences.
Great list of Chinese Shopping Websites! We also provide a list of about 100 Chinese shops for German customers and still found some sites we didn’t know yet. Good work!
We will check them too and include them in our so called “China Shop Liste” where we collect all reliable China Shopping Sites delivering to Germany.
Nice huge list you have! It brings some new shops for me too.
are dealextreme and gearbest reliable sites as sometimes they ask for buyers credit card photocopy?
Moreover kindly give name of some retail sites which are good for fountain pens and double edge shaving razors.
The sites are legitimate. I would check the terms and conditions at DX and Gearbest for this. You can use Paypal with your CC too.
I have no information on specific products.
Good luck, Boris
Never knew there were so many Chinese shops. I only bought at Lightinthebox. No complains.
Sometimes you might even not know it’s a Chinese shop. Lightinthebox has a very good translated website and send you a description written in your onw language (I get it in Dutch, which is not a very common language in the world)
Nice list to have, I bought couple of times at Milanoo, good. But takes long time to get.
