Hi Chen, Nicole is a girl by the way.
But Chen with regard to the volatile market right now in China, what signs of hope to resolving this can you give Salehoo?
Obviously China has alot of great products, a potential to make very good profit & do very great business there as well.
However, it also has an enormous amount of scams and illegal operations presently creating counterfeit or '100% fake' items.
How do you in your estimation, see the future going?
There was a recent recall of chinese petfood for instance, that poisoned thousands of animals. That's only one of many that's been thrown in the news lately.
Obviously, the problem is there exists a certain set of mafia underground people in China or people who don't know better.
This has gotten very mischevious with people ripping others off; entangled into law enforcement investigations and overseas fraud office reporting.
Do you think you have a method, or news that would help other distributors & people to gain great success out of China? And to avoid all the despicable scam thieves & peddlers?
China is a truly great market after all, it would be nice if we could all be rewarded from it.
thank you for my remind.i am not familar with the name system of US.
answer your question.i live in china and i know the ins and outs of china market better.
there is also lots of copies and fake product in china online shop.
we have taobao.com as ebay.com
the only payment method in taobao.com is alipay.com,the same as escrow.com
seller would not get his money unless the buyer recieve the product and be satisfied with it.so only a few scammer is on chinese website.
it is the payment system bugs that give the oppotunity for the scammer to cheat.e.g. western union or paypal.
scammer always advertised their product at a quite good price and claimed they only accept the western union payment.when some guys cannot resist the low price temptation,they are fall into the scammer.
even some websites do accept the paypal payment,there is still chances to do scammer.
some cheater register more than one paypay account with certain ways,so they can move the money from one account to another.even paypal dicied in your favor,paypal are not able to recover your lost since the money has been removed.
i think the most safe way to make payment is escrow.it will decreas the scammers.the biggest problem is the transaction fee is too high.in china, we use the alipay.com for free,no transaction fee at all.
as for the fake or copies,it is true that many copies and fake items are produced in china.some of the seller do admit the fact when they sell them.some bad seller may sell them as a authentic products.
btw,i believe chinese seller can register to the escrow.com
i do have a register escrow.com and we have ways the register a US debit card in china which used to withdraw money.
i am not the government officer,i cannot do too much to change the fact in china.
when you cannot change a fact,we have to accept it; use its good side;keep away from the bad side.
i will do my best to supply the information to avoid salehoo members' being scammed again.
