The Chinese have been cheating people the world over for centuries...   Their business plan is to generate income by promising goods and services with no intention of delivering...  

I've given up from ordering from China anymore, unless it's through Lazada. Ebay Chinese sellers are hopeless, either the item never comes at all, probably because it was never sent, and then the sell

I brought a book once on E-bay on how to scam idiots.......   That was 3 months ago and I still haven't received it..............................

Can paypal not help you?

Eventually, but you have to wait until the final delivery date which might be 3 months. Then you have to send a letter to the seller before you can start a PayPal dispute. In the meantime you've wasted 3 months waiting for an item that was probably never sent in the first place.

Never had a problem with EBay buying Chinese goods same with Ali just takes a long time coming because I choose a supplier with  delivery free products.

You must be the only one in the world. You only have to look at their ratings and read the comments about non-delivery and items not as described.

Some Motorcycle parts l've got from China because nobody else can supply them so just commented I have had no problem apart from some minor alterations to the copy parts.

Did you really ever use eBay? You will not open a PayPal dispute but you will open a case in eBay. When you order you also get information about the delivery date range. And if you wait too long after this then you will lose the option to open a case. I ordered very many things on eBay. I always got my money back if it wasn't delivered in time. I opened a case and said that I want to have a refund and not a new delivery. I always got my money back.

Did I say that I never got my money back? I said that you may have to wait 3 months before you can claim, and then you have to start all over again and hope the next Chinese seller actually sends what you paid for. I paid the last seller on the 16th July, but delivery date was up to the 21st September, nearly 10 bloody weeks!

I totally agree with every word.

 

From what I remember eBay was a place to connect second hand sellers with a buyer, I don’t remember chinese retailers and drop shippers jumping in until later. I don’t think eBay can manage them well which is why I avoid eBay.

 

I got sick of waiting for 3 months, especially around Chinese New Year, sellers swearing blind they had sent and never shows up then asking you to wait a while then pleading poverty, asking you to wait or pay some percentage for a replacement.

 

Aliexpress is OK for me, sure somethings never arrive but I usually buy multiple items and I never spend more than 1000B with any supplier. I was only ripped off once, a zigbee sensor that wasn’t zigbee - because it was the same brand name Aliexpress sided with the seller - and made 350B from me. But others had already posted in the reviews, I should have read them carefully.
