Hi,
I'm considering drop shipping some electricals from Chinavasion.com, but I don't know if they're any good.
Has anyone dealt with them before?
Any advice?
Thanks,
Theo

I have been selling some of there stuff recently and all i can say is be prepared for a lot of problems like import taxes, damaged products on arrival and they run out of stock very often and don't update the stock updates enough. also choose your products carefully as they mix in a lot of very poor (xmas cracker quality) tat in with the good stuff. The margins are small on the products as there are loads of people having a go at drop shipping with them at the moment and are willing to make peanuts. On the plus side the customer service is very good and they ship stuff pretty quick and efficiently and they have "some" nice products also.

I'll post this on the review as well.

Morning Theob.

What can I say about chinavasion.. SCAM.. I have had nothing but trouble with them.

first of all it was a return of a DVD player, the lid broke, fine, but it took so long that my customer cracked the poos with me, I had to purchase another one and have it sent to them, chinavasion never refunded or anything.

Next, well, I purchased a camera for a customer, I had been trying to work out postage costs for someone in maldives, so I had changed my country to maldives and had not set it back, I ordered this camera and clicked OK then relising my error contacted them within 30 seconds of making the order, they assured me several times that it would be rectified, I had to send another one to my customer, again, my cost, over a couple months chinavasion did find it and told me it would need to be either abandoned in maldives or at my cost returned to them, poor comms by the departments, anothe rloss and gain to them

this one not realy their fault but, customer purchased a GSM security thing off me, it got to his country and because of duty costs, decided it was not worth it and asked me to cancell the order and refund, by the time CHinavasion got it back, they was to be a $9.00 refund, their shipping costs were astronomical.

Customer was not happy.

I will not deal with them ever again.

Thanks to everyone who posted.

I took all the comments into account and I chose to use them and so far have just placed a few small orders with Chinavasion.
Fingers crossed, but there have been no problems so far.
Everything arrived with my customers in decent time and I didn't feel 'out of control' with the situation.

I will post more if there is any other good or bad feedback I could share.

Thanks!

Hi, still no problems so far.

Sometimes I have waited for a while for an answer to some technical questions, but I think the time-difference is to blame more than anything.

To be honest I think most of the answers can probably be found online pretty easily if you cannot wait for Chinavasion's answer.

I am not a large 'business' yet by any means, so far I have still only placed a few orders.

Chinavasion are warning that this Saturday (tomorrow) is their cut off for orders to be placed in time to deliver for Christmas, but I know that the Winter weather has caused delays, so I would be careful leaving it that late!

Hi All,

I have been trading with chinavasion for about 12months now and havent really had any problem apart from a charger dying which they replaced for free. As for small margins, it realy depends on your sale price that will determine your margin. Chinavasion Does offer its resellers level discounts, so over time the more business you do with them the larger your margins will become. As for taxes of importing chinavasion products to your country and customers, this is your responsiblity to ensure you know about your countries customs rules and regulations from importing products.

Kind Regards

Hello,
I know this may be late, but I have been selling with Chinavasion solidly for the past 6 months - infact, on my ebya shop, 98% is from Chinavasion. Yes in this time I have had a few returns (3) - however their after slae service is awersome clear and to the point. Over the Christmas preiod I sold (clear after fees) over $2000 (my takings) . I only have praise for Chinavasion and as of yet have NEVER had a problem with taxes on anything... touch wood!
Good luck and go for them.... I can trust them.... there are many others where I have been scammed - Alibaba has been one of them (however there are good sellers here too)

Best wishes
Jason
