    *Warning* Banggood

    *Warning* Banggood 17th Nov 19 at 10:18 AM
    A warning about Banggood delivery, it just doesn't happen.

    I was given a 30 day delivery timescale which then turned into a 'we will ship' within 30 days which then turned into a shipping date after the 30 day time frame and 14 days after that the item had still not shown as having been shipped so I cancelled.

    I got my money back - well almost, because of currency exchange rates I lost over £1 on the deal.

    You may be surprised and get good value items and equally good customer service but when paying pennies for items, this is far from guaranteed.

    Had stuff not arrive from Chinese sellers. Maybe they didnt post it, maybe it got lost in the post or maybe customs seized it. Who knows its teh risk.

    Ordered more stuff today, delivery estimates seem longer than normal, maybe its just the sellers of this gadget? Or maybe its because its getting close to xmas?

    Except some items i purchased the other day show an expected delivery of Jan 3rd.

    Tried to pick ones where thats the latest but they do seem to be longer delivery times than usual.

    Rather wait than pay double for the same item.

    Never had any problems with China based sellers. "Chinese crap" is sold universally in the U.K. by big name sellers anyway. So why pay more for the same stuff? What isn't Chinese made nowadays anyway?

    In fact, a recent AliExpress order of mine was not showing any tracking nor has it been delivered. AliExpress refunded the full amount paid, without question, after I opened a dispute..

    Had a couple from Ali over the summer. Weirdly both went to addresses on the other side of the country from me so I assume I'd been mixed up with another order.
    Refunded immediately.

    I order a fair bit from them, mostly random crap (case in point a toothpick crossbow) and rarely have problems but I keep in mind that this is a Chinese item and don't spend more than I'm happy to lose.

    That is usually my thinking when buying from China only buy what you can afford to throw away.

    Broke that rule once and spent a few hundred on an item, less than half the UK prices for the same item.

    1st box arrived totally empty where was box #2? Tracking showed it in Memphis USA. Opened dispute about the 1st box and a few days later box #2 arrived all battered and ripped partially open.

    Seller shipped the missing items and all was good until i received 2 lots of shipping /tax charges. Complained and they wiped the lot.

    Lucky ending, especially so as the seller under insured.
