Hi everyone,

I've been looking at Global-Trade Hong Kong which directs to jd.com for electronics and the prices seem to be INCREDIBLY low. e.g. for an Apple iPad Pro, it is 5188 yen (around $61AUD). Is the mark up on Apple products really THAT much? I did a quick google and iPad Pros in Australia retail for $900-1200 for the same product.

It sounds too good to be true. Does anyone know if it is?

Have you used them? Are these fakes, etc?

I don't know the site, but if it's out of mainland China, then you're looking at fakes at those prices. No ifs, buts or even maybes, absolute guaranteed!

Global-Trade Hong Kong is one of your approved sellers, though.

While Global Trade is an authorsied supplier is a verified member, JD.com is not. It's a B2C site, so I need to clarify how you ended up on JD. Was it via a link on the GT site ir did GT customer support driect you personally. If it was via a link, can you forward the link so I can get support to follow up please.

Yes, it's through their site.
On the main Global Trade Hong Kong site, click "how to order" and scroll down to the product categories and it takes you to jd.com etc.
Do they actually have products on their own site? It was unclear to me, but I may have been skimming.

Thanks Sarah,

I'll pass this on to support for them to review and I'll confirm with you once I hear back regarding the issue.

Cheers

Hi Sarah,

Just to update you, this supplier has been removed from the directory at this point until further verification can be processed. Unfortunately, at the time of their approval they had no links to other Chinese based platforms like JD.com, these have been only new and additions that have been brought to our attention by your inquiry.

We'll inform you as to if the supplier passes the futher verification and has their approved supplier status reactivated or not as soon as we the decision has been made. Until that point, we can NOT recommend doing business with this supplier.

Cheers
