Hi,

Just been reading all this negative feedback about DHGate and was wondering if there are resellers who have had any good experience with DHGate.

I have placed a lot of DHGate products on my website and am considering removing them if there's no good comment or recommendation from fellow sellers.

Looking forward to some positive comments. Thank you.

DHGate isn't at fault, it's more the sellers that have an issue.

This particular person, I know well enough now and he has a feedback rating over 100.

He has always been very helpful even with disputes. I wouldn't expect perfection that's for sure, but these guys have been good.

Beijing2000 and many other supply sellers may be a different story. I only know who I have experience with. So I would not hold it against the whole DHGate company as every supplier is different.

Look at their score and carefully get to know them first.

Also ask the seller any question you have. I was going to buy some golf clubs and asked if they were fake and he replied yes, didn't try to lie or mislead.

If you have a bad experience with a seller, it's not dhgate, it's that seller. I'm sure some of us have had bad experiences with sellers or buyers on ebay but we still go there.

Think of dhgate as a wholesaler and manufacturer version of ebay from china.

Personally i wouldnt dropship from dhgate until you build a trusting relationship with a specific supplier, too many things can & often DO go wrong. Delayed delivery times, wrong products sent & bad quality items are recieved more times than not and any of these things will lead to angry or disgruntled customers. The best thing to do is order samples from various suppliers first and then keep a record of their delivery times, item quality, communication, price etc. then mark each one out of 10 in each of these fields. This is a good way to find the best suppliers on dhgate. (Also bear in mind that the suppliers with the most feedback are not always the best, it's been quite the opposite in my experiences) :lol:

HI

I have a bad experience with a DHGATE's seller. I am agree with you guys that it's not DHGATE's fault

I have ordered at DHGATE and received a fake item from this seller. But seller didn't give the correct description in his listing and use a genuien picture of this item and ship me a fake one.

And also this seller shipped my item by EMS while I paid for DHL.

In my opinion most of the DHGATE's sellers are not good they received several negative feedback and their experience with buyers are not that good.

After my first order I am realy thinking wheather i order another item from DHGATE's seller or not.

I've been buying and selling with dhgate for over a year now and haven't had one bad experience. You just have to be careful what sellers you buy from. Obviously check their feedback first. You can check a sellers feedback and see what customers have left on certain products. I'll usually contact the seller and establish a business relationship or negotiations prior to purchasing. Almost all sellers can be negotiated with. I've even had a few send free samples. If you need any info on a certain seller send me a PM i've dealt with several of them.

You just have to be smart when buying from them. I mean you wouldnt buy $3,000 worth of stuff from a 0 feedback on ebay would ya.

Dhgate has a similar feedback system. Just dont buy from anyone with poor feedback. And use your head when buying products.

True, you have to be smart when buying from a seller, but I don't agree with not buying from low feedback sellers.

Most of the sellers with low feedback I have found to be the most reliable and honest. Its most likely because sellers with high feedback are more layed back and don't care for each individual customer as much because of their high volume of sales.

Lower feedback sellers treat you with more interest and I have found to generally have better response times.

Ask questions to the sellers, test their interest in you their potential customer.

Same olf story but with a different site. Dh gate is a good site. The company isnt to blame but some of the sellers suck. Just my honest opinion. Know what u r buying and who u r buying from is the key. The website is just a website. They really dont control who buys r sells on that site.

I have lived in China for years. The biggest thing is our misunderstanding of Chinese business. Most of the people selling these think they are real because they are making them. This is how a lot of them think. You have to ask very specific questions about the items, get pictures of the tags, stiching, materials used, price, origin, ect. To us we take it for granted that in the USA all things are real, because we have a real legal system. No matter what you buy in China it is fake, no matter what. You should know this up front before buying. This is why, the export tax on the real items, I.E. anyting from apple, microsoft, ect is almost 40%. a real 2 GB Ipod Nano cost 250 USD in China. You won't the prices to match US markets. Once you able to understand this then you know what to expect. You can't get upset with the seller because 9 out 10 buyers want this fake. They are just filling the demand of the poorer class of Americans. They are better capitalist than most of us. If anyone has any questions about China I will be glad to help.
