Shopping on DHgate/ Spicesforlove

Postby mrbob13 » 14 Dec 2014, 22:30

I was wondering if anyone has ever ordered anything from or

I know they are both Chinese based organizations and "you get what you pay for", but i was curious if anyone has had some experience with either.

They have a bunch of stuff on there that i really would like to get, but have never found US retailers that sell them.

Thanks in advance.

I've found SpicesForLove pretty reliable. They do a flat $10 per shipment shipping charge, regardless of how much is in the box, which avoids surprises at checkout, and they ship promptly.

DGgate is not one seller; it's kinda eBay-like, so asking "how good is DHgate" is a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string?" The sellers are variable. Generally I've found AliExpress hold their sellers to tighter standards, but that might just be luck (they're a similar kind of operation).

They're all selling basically the same stuff, and that quality varies from good value for money to complete crap. It's never going to be stunning quality - if you want that you need to be looking at Western manufacturers ... and paying Western prices.
