Buying a monitor from China, especially Gearbest, sounds scary as hell!

Anyone dealt with their customer service? I've only ever cancelled all my orders from them as they never shipped even after 2+ weeks. 3 orders there, all cancelled.

Gearbest does seem to get a bad press, so I guess there may be some truth in it. That said, I have been buying from them for several years, without a hitch. Literally hundreds of orders. Yes, it is not next day delivery, but China isn't exactly next door. Other than the delivery time, I cannot fault them. Regards.

gearbest...

However my last purchase was a yamakasi catleap that came via a korean seller on ebay.
Best monitor I've ever had and still going strong today

I have ordered many items from Gearbest and can't fault them yet... But I draw a line at spending £100+! A small parcel the size of a lightbulb doesn't attract the same amount of attention at Customs as a 27" monitor would

I'm still trying to find the perfect curved monitor to take the plunge on, but imagine the box is at least twice as deep as a normal 27" too xD

Take it Gearbest with cover all customs charges and UK handling fees and thats included in the price?

That's what I was thinking. Even if they declare the monitor as gift, it will be held at customs for 2.5% duty charge. If not sent as gift there is VAT on top of that too. And if Royal Mail is the courier within the UK, as far as I know there will be a £8 charge for handling fees on top too

gov.uk/goo…uty

That's said, they also have the option to declare the value $15 like what all Chinese retailer do and it will fly trhough customs, haha.

Alibaba and Aliexpress often undervalue their products for the customer to reduce tax, but Gearbest (in my experience) do not do that. They correctly state the value of the item. In this case £160 item would result in a 2.5% duty charge, equating to £4 payable by the recipient (buyer).

Do you know if they declare the item as gift or normal purchase? If they do not declare it as gift the VAT you'd be paying will be stupidly high. I paid £13 on a $50 item.

If I send something to the US through UPS or something the buyer pays customs duty, not me. Why would ordering from China be any different?

No, Gearbest does not declare items as "Gift", other sites like Alibaba and Aliexpress do however.

I’ve ordered 100’s of items from gearbest over the last few years and never once been charged vat. including big items like electric scooters and bikes. They send to somewhere in Europe first, then it gets shipped from there. I have never had a problem with them either. If something arrives broken all you do is send a photo and they refund in full. I’ve also had no shows and never had a problem getting money back or another item sent over. I don’t know why people would have a problem with them because every time I have contacted them they have been fantastic

This is just over £200 delivered from various European Amazon sites and £210 on Amazon.co.uk so £160 is a very good price if you don't get any issues.

I was trying to make subtle point, that you may get charged vat and handling charges but every China dropshipping post claims they never get charged, which is bull. Thus the price quoted on this post is in dubious.

Always a good idea to at least list the price if VAT and whatnot get applied in the body of the deal, agreed there.
