Buying a sample? 1

Question Category: About Alibaba.com Views: 36069

Hello, I have been unable to find an answer to my question, so I hope you can help. I have ordered a sample through Alibaba sample ordering process. I have been in contact with the supplier about his product. He has told me that they do not supply samples through Alibaba and has asked me to pay for the freight and sample cost directly to them. Is this safe or recommended. Thanks

    Samples are always free.Never pay cost for samples.if you know the supplier is on alibaba approved list.you can pay max freight amount.if you have fedex/dhl import a/c that no. is sufficient.Normally supplier charge freight for the first time for sending free samples,if you place orders.they may reduce that freight cost in next order.Never deposit cash in their personal account.people may cheat you.

    best regards

      Why we can't accept Paypal.
      1)
      Paypal is good for buyer. For seller, it takes 45 days to get the funds from paypal after we finish the deal.
      It's not good for trading company funds recycling. That's why we don't support Paypal
      2)
      we get the product from the factory, it is no tax, if use paypal, we must make the VAT invoice by company, then we will pay 17% tax, and pay 6% tax for paypal, it is too high, we just get a little profits from the business, hope you can understand us
      3)
      Last month, we have send 20pcs tablet PC to a India customer, but they complained that they just got 18pcs.
      And let US to return the money to them, otherwise they will block our account.
      So we can not accept paypal for new customer now
      ption 1 :
      You can pay 50% deposit to us, We will deliver your goods at once, after you received the goods, you can open the package.
      You will pay 50% to DHL OK ?

      I have purchased Flip Magnet Wallet Stand Cartoon Printed PU Leahter Case Cover For Nokia Lumia 625 Phone Cases+ Screen Protector For Nokia 625H in the month of DEcember, 2013 and received product in January, 2014. It has been 6 months I am using this product.
      The paint on the case has started coming out and also threads from the edges comes out frequently. It seems that product is not up to the mark as committed on website.
