I have been buying hip hop wear from a vender in China. He only accepts bank transfers or Western Union. I made a purchase of 3 pair of jeans and paid for them. In my emails to him I said my name was Jim, he went to WU and could not pick up the money because I had sent the money in the name of James. As soon as I gave him my James name he picked up the money and sent the jeans via EMS. He picked up the money on Tuesday and I received the jeans Express Mail from the US Postal Service on Saturday, four days later and on a postal holiday(vets day).
:( My first total was only for $110 but I had to pay a $14 fee for WU charge. I sold the 3 pairs of jeans for $100 each. : I have now ordered some hoodies and NFL jerseys for $300 that I hope to sell for $750 or more. 8)
I would say if you want to use Western Union do so on a small order and build your way up as your confidence in the supplier grows.
Any endevor has risks, using WU is on I'm willing to try.
I am getting in to urban/hip hop clothes.
