    Dhgate is a great site for unbranded goods, Don't expect to find genuine branded goods at stupid prices like an Iphone for 100pounds. :Clap:

    Yep, good for unbranded goods.

    Stay away from branded goods as they'll be fake / scam.

    as is custom for all chinese/asian based b2b websites. there will be very few legitimate suppliers of branded goods on alibaba/dhgate.

    DH Gate is not good at all (especially since there's AliExpress now).

    * All branded goods are fakes there!

    * Un-branded stuff you can get cheaper from Alibaba or Global Sources

    It's really full of middle man and traders trying to foll people with fake software or Shure microphones!

    It depends if you are looking to buy large volume or single pieces / small lots.

    Many of the sellers on DHgate are the same as Alibaba or Global Sources. Look for those suppliers that have references from people you trust.

    DHGATE is Paypal's biggest customer in Asia. no geniune branded products there, don't be tempted by the price and the products title

    i have bought some unbranded stuff from DHgate, all was ok but i think most of the supplier's buy from the manufacturer's you will find on Alibaba so if you are buying larger quantity's go to alibaba
