Online shopping is not surprisingly 'dirt cheap' if you really find a good supplier. You can get almost everything with a price that doesn't even burn your wallet. Unfortunately, most of these sellers are from Chinese e-commerce website. I usually shop through my trusted online agent SGshop. I have been using their service for many years now. SGshop eliminates many barriers for me and makes online shopping cross border a lot easier.
The language barrier is always a problem for a non-Chinese speaker like me. Sometimes the product photo looks super tempting to buy but unable to read the Chinese character for the details descriptions since the website is in Chinese without any translation options. Worst if I am looking for something for specific in particular but hard to communicate this to the potential seller at the other end of the world. At SGshop they listed all items in English and with easier understandable descriptions.
You know we are in the era of Alipay and Wechat pay. We can't register and do a cross border transaction using those. I know what you are thinking, we have PayPal and so on. This option is seriously limited and not many offer these options though. Payment mode is secure with wide options from secure credit card to online payment transfer. You don't even have to worry about extra bank charges shopping with SGshop.
I am not sure about you but as for my experience did the transaction with China is like hell. Especially the delivery part. No one explains on customs clearance part. You can't even give up the items which are stuck at the custom and end up paying an expensive price for items clearance. Your time cost goes to custom and on added up. Burn my wallet deeply. From packaging to customs clearance completed by SGshop on your behalf. You don't need to leave your house or receive a message your items stuck at custom. Everything delivers at our doorstep. I remember buying a shelf which is considered big items and all reached me hassle free.
4. Quality Control
Most of the price is super cheap but that doesn't mean we are to accept the bad quality. We don't have anyone to even verify and check the quality for us. When the item reached you if it is good then good for you. But if the item is total garbage, can you apply for a refund? Some seller is smart they will say 7 days money back guarantee but provided the item reached them by then. Who is bearing the shipping cost back? SGshop has a warehouse in China and they will check our items before delivery. Anything doesn't meet the quality expectation will be sent back to the seller for replacement. This is a seriously good service.
5. Refund and Compensation
If you find the items reach you are not as ordered or even damage item, you can always talk to your agent who will then deal with the seller at the other end.
