Thanks for this website, REALLY!!! I have learned so much from you!
I have a question too about one supplier I have found: made-in-china.com
What are your thoughts? Is it a scam or legit supplier?
This is a first time I plan to import products from China so really want to make it right, don’t want to get scammed (I can’t afford that).
I have done some research on this website and got mixed reviews – some people say it’s a scam, some report successful orders.
Please help Andrew!
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for your question.
Made-In-China.com is definitely not a scam! It’s a totally legit B2B (Business 2 Business) website, very popular one by the way.
The main reason why you got so mixed reviews is that it’s only a PLATFORM between sellers and buyers. Made In China doesn’t sell any products, they have created a marketplace for sellers and buyers just like Alibaba.com or DHgate.com
All those scam stories you have heard most likely came from people who tried to purchase branded electronics (such as iPhone, Pioneer DJ equipment etc.) from a supplier listed on Made-In-China.com You should know that you can’t get branded electronics from China! If you’ll try, you’ll get scammed, as simple as that.
Also, don’t forget that Chinese B2B websites like these are FULL of Fakes, such as:
* Designer clothing, handbags, shoes
* Hair straighteners
For me – getting a FAKE is same as getting scammed so stay away from ANY branded products when you deal with Chinese suppliers!
What’s interesting about Made In China website is that they offer Audited Reports for selected suppliers:
These are not free though but if you’re after a total piece of mind, well worth the money ($40)!
In general I’m not a huge fan of Made In China website – I prefer Alibaba.com and GlobalSources.com but that’s just me, I’m sure you can find great suppliers via Made In China website too!
Hope this helps,
