China offer great source for everything, which is regarded as world factory. Being such reason, It is easy to see some stuff with high quality at a much cheapper price rate , but do you know how to select from thousands of suppliers? I am from China, so it is much easier to reveal something: 1. Fraud’s main character: a. Low price. No doubt that low price is really appealing to people, So it is the first trick Fraud use. b. Eager to conclude the transaction. They meet all your requirements to conclude the transacton, after you paid, you will get nothing. c. No secure payment method. Suggested tools: Google search:”website scam” to see if they are included. 2. Reliable company’s character: a. Professional service. You could email them or online chat to test if they could answer professionally and how experienced they are in this field. Ask about Memership, payment method(frist transaction, use paypal Plz), shipping way, return policy, and something else. b. A well-established working team. A trusted company should have sales department, aftersales department, order processing department, tenical department. c. Offer multiple payment method. Paypal or credit card is your first choice when you do business with strangers. Commonly people will search google for china dropshipper, I suggest it is better to use B2B site like alibaba, or tradekey, many trustworthy company are their members. Hope this are helpful and share your idea with us.
