Is DHgate safe? It does not accept PayPal payment.

DH Gate is a B2B directory of business's, it is not a supplier itself. When doing business on any B2B directory you have to remember that you are doing business with individual suppliers, not DH Gate themselves, so you have to really watch who you do business with on a site like that. If you are looking at a supplier that doesn't accept a safe payment option like PayPal or Credit Card, then my advice would be to keep looking.

You will find a mix of good, bad and outright scammers on B2B directories like this, so always tread carefully.

Yes, using the DH Gate Escrow service should be fine, Having said that, I have no personal experience with it and would still personally prefer to use card myself.

I really like the DHgate. But as i know it is not the company use Dropshipper but they sell in bulk or Dozen stuff Minimum order. if we have a constraint for it?

1. Is it illegal on eBay, if our Buyer on eBay know that item our sell it's not from our Address and not include our Name?
2. And How to sell if we buy from bulk from then, then I resell in unit to eBay?

(if anyone has experience on this)

I am New Seller on eBay, and need much learn from you my Master ( Mr. Marc) LOL...

Hi Yudistira,

I'll answer the second question first.

If you purchase in wholesale lots, that will have to be sent directly to you and then you can sell the items individually from there. You do need to make sure the products you purchase from DH Gate are not branded products. Any branded product will be a fake and will end up getting you into trouble when trying to import.

When dealing with a B2B site, you need to always use a safe payment method as well, never use a wire like Western Union.

Regarding Dropshipping, When listing the product on eBay you have to list the location as where the product is coming from. So if you live in the US, but the product is being sent from China, then you have to list the location as China, not USA where you live. The location is for where the product is, not where you live.

Enough with the Master lol, I'll be getting called Yoda soon :(
