Any ever use this site before?

I have made contact with one seller there who has 4GB iPod Nano's for $179, plus $3 shipping each unit. So thats basically $182 each to your doorstep. Pretty much the best price I've found. He has a MOQ of 10 pieces, and takes a secure site for credit card transactions as payment. He is also based in the US.

Anyone ever buy from here? Feel like making sample purchases?

I have bought from tradekey members before. Some of the suppliers will rip you off in a heartbeat. It is just a site to help meet potential buyers and sellers. You must do your homeowrk before buying anything off that site. SInce the person is in the US I would request more information. I would require a resellers license number and have it verified. I would also request some form of picture Id like a drivers license. A DBA certificate wouldnt hurt either. Just make sure the seller is legal and that you can actually make a court case just in case something goes wrong. I would also think about buying a product sample cod with a contract to buy 10 more pieces after approving the sample. If they won't work with ya than why do business with them. Maybe try a letter of credit. It will increase costs but its better than getting ripped off.

Don'y try to buy from Link hidden: Login to view , I believe this website was started by some Chinese scam artists. There is a similar scam website called digital-******.org, it is selling the same thing with the same format, but with different location/contact/payment info.

(1) They don't have a corporate phone or fax. They use a cell phone number for everything. If you call the number listed on their website (0118613636983035), you'll hear a message and said the phone is powered off. I just tried again @ 8:00 AM (their time).

(2) The website stated the 'company are in the IT field for several years', clearly they're not in wholesale electronics business. The company even doesn't have a CORPORATE NAME., look at the whole website, you cannot find its CORPORATE NAME except 'Electronics export trading company'.

(3) This website was only created on 09-Aug-2006, the owner of the website is located in Ninbo, Zhejiang province. However, if you look at their website, the owner stated in Fujian Province (fake info). Here are details about the website.

(4) Obviously they only take Wstern Union wire transfer. Under the payment, you will see you have to pay another individual located in another city. This is a no-no to do business with a company looks like100% fraud.
