Hi all
Not to sure if I have posted this in the right spot but what the hell.
If I buy some stock for someone in the For Sale: Wholesalers Selling Exclusively to SaleHoo Members! Spot of this site and they use paypal how safe it is??
Is there anyway I can go about things to make sure I don’t end up getting scammed or even ripped off?
Can anyone here give me any advice on the safest way to trade on salehoo?
Thanks for your time
utam

We have a process that requires members to register with salehoo as a seller if they want to sell to our members. We do a stringent check on thier information, contact info , Business registration and more to ensure that they are a legitimate seller. If they do not live up to the deal then the buyer must report them to us.


If they do not have Registered Seller title next to thier username then we do not recommend you purchasing from them.

If I catch a member trying to sell to another member and they are not registered, I will intervine and delete thier contact info and possibly the whole post. If they continue to persist without registering they will be banned from the forums.

What is his name?


Someone can post his name and get him to answer the questions so we can put him on the spot.


Not to antagonize him at all nothing like that, the reason that it should be done is just to make sure he is offering a reliable service.


Any questions that someone has with a supplier, are usually answered first off when you meet that supplier and ask them about their background.

You need to talk to them quite a bit first by asking them about the product, ask them what it usually comes with, how much are the shipping rates, and other simple but key questions. If they can answer these effectively and easily, you can trust them, and most of the time won't run into a problem.

But if they can't, then you can't trust them. You most likely would never trust someone who can't answer simple questions that relate to exactly what you would be buying. It gives you a feel of a supplier right when you meet him or her.
