I'm a newbie to Salehoo and need some advice. I have come across Link hidden: Login to view on SaleHoo and there are no reviews up as yet.

What i'm concerned about is United watch will only accept wire transfers for international orders. Is this normal, or has anyone dealt with UnitedWatch? as i'm a bit hesitant to place an order.....Any help or feedback would be great!!

There is no security with wire transfers so make sure you find out about this supplier before dealing with them if that's the only payment type they accept.

HI bb_08

I agree with DropshipWholesalers, be very careful, I fell into this trap when I first started, sent money via Western Union to a company I had been talking to for weeks via email and yahoo only to find they were a bogus company. I should have done better checks.
Unfortunately I dont know why legitimate companies dont broaden their ways of accepting money as Paypal these days can be used by hundreds of countries even china as of December 2006 can accept Paypal. It would distiguish the legitimate companies from the illegitimate companies who are only out there to rip you off and there is a lot of them out there.

So take as many safe measures as possible, if you can try and steer away from these companies who only accept wire transfer or Western Union etc.
Thats just my thoughts anyway.

Thanks for your advice!! The only thing is United Watch are happy to take payment by credit card if you are located within the US. But if it is an international order it must be wire transfer....Jimmy any insight? is there a reason for this, or is just likely to be a scam?

I imagine that that is for their own security. I wouldn't take a cc from an international buyer. I'd be hesitant to take any repudiable form of payment such as a cc, PayPal, etc. from a new buyer outside of my home country.
