Chinabuye Index

Experience with Chinabuye.com

The online shop has a very mixed item inventory so we had to test the store for you. Now we’re able to tell you a few specific things about ChinaBuye.

Pros

  • payment possible with PayPal or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express)
  • free standard shipping
  • no minimum order value
  • point system with different discount levels

Cons

  • many necessary help pages simply don’t exist because questions are answered mainly in e-mails or in a cluttered forum

Payment

The payment and ordering process at ChinaBuye is well structured and easy. After filling your shopping basket you can complete your order by clicking on “Check out with PayPal”. Keep in mind to avoid using special characters or they might lead to delays in the processing and shipment of your order. The address deposited at PayPal usually only contains regular signs, changing for example “ü” to “ue”, so you should be on the safe side.

We recommend paying with PayPal because the PayPal buyer protection offers you the opportunity to open a case within 45 days of paying your order and requesting a refund of your money in case of any problems or mistakes. ChinaBuye offers also webmoney, Western Union or credit card payment (Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Maestro) and even credit card payment via Alipay.

Chinabuye Payment Methods

There should be a payment method available for any preference - you can even pay via Paypal or Alipay

Shipping and delivery time

Standard shipping is always free at ChinaBuye. Independent of the order value the shipping never costs anything. But if you are in a hurry or simply don’t have the patience to wait for standard shipping, you can pay for expedited shipping via DHL, UPS or EMS. Depending on weight, measurements and delivering company, the fees vary. The known delivering companies generally charge about 20 to 30 Euro for shipping.

The express shipping for inexpensive products is comparably pricey and can add to the import VAT tax, so we recommend using the free standard shipping or the very inexpensive registered airmail. Regarding the delivery time, the shipping is comparable to other Chinese online shops. The express shipping should arrive at the latest within two weeks and the free standard shipping usually arrives within three to four weeks.

Chinabuye Shipping Methods

Many options: Ranging from free shipping to comparably expensive EMS-Express shipping

Return policy

The exchange and return of faulty or missing items or whole orders happens relatively quick. You can apply for return or exchange of items within 30 days. If you simply want to return or exchange something because you don’t like it, then you have to pay for the return shipping fee yourself. Otherwise the customer support might be more accommodating. If you do need to return something, you contact the customer support first, describe the problem and state if you want a refund or an exchange. Generally you should always take pictures of your parcels and their faulty or incomplete content, to send picture proof to the customer support. If a product is faulty, the customer support might decide that you don’t need to return a product for the exchange or return to occur.

Of course you always have the option to open a case on PayPal and demand a refund but this should only be necessary in the rarest cases.

Specific features

Chinabuye offers a vast assortment of products. You can buy clothing, makeup and gadgets in one order. And another advantage of ChinaBuye is that you can buy items from a couple of lesser known Chinese brands, such as Ainol, Jiayu oder Orico.

The online shop also offers an internal point system that helps you save money in one of two ways. Either you exchange points for dollar discounts (100 points = 1 US$) or you can save up points to be admitted to the VIP program and get a discount of 1 - 3% discount on every order.

Son unos timadores, cuando no tienen un producto en stock, no te lo dicen y te formalizan el pedido y cuando reclamas te dicen que ha sido enviado y que reclames a tu oficina de correos y que les remitas un "certificado de tu sistema postal como que no está el paquete". Intentan engañarte como a un chino. Te "torean" haciendote perder el tiempo con los mensajes del serv. atencion al cliente, para ganar tiempo y aburrirte, aunque esta es una práctica muy común entre todas las paginas web de e-comerce chinas. Si no tienes PayPal, mejor no compres ahí.

Also ich kann den Shop nur loben. Ich finde sogar Chinabuye ist um einiges schneller als Dealextreme.
Man sollte bei Chinabuye nur beachten, dass es viele Fälschungen gibt, Orginale sind meistens mit

Lieferungen sind immer angekommen. PLUS: Mit dem Zoll hatte ich bisland auch noch keinen Ärger.. Ich hab dort mittlerweile bereits 5 mal bestellt und alle Pakete waren über 50 Dollar.
Also Riko muss wohl ordentlich Pech gehabt haben;)
Also ich für meinen Teil kann Chinabuye genauso empfehlen wie den Giganten Dealextreme.

Erstmal Lob an diese Seite! Finde es super, dass mal ein deutsches Portal entstanden ist, dass die ganzen Chinashops unter die Lupe nimmt und hilfreiche Tipps und Infos zum Bestellen aus China liefert. Leider trauen sich viele Leute nämlich nicht so recht aus China zu bestellen. Halt aus Angst (durch Fehlinfos oder fehlendes Wissen bezüglich Zoll etc.) Geschürt wird das ganze ja auch noch dadurch, dass man überwiegend negative Meinungen im Netz findet. Ich selbst aber bestelle sehr gern aus China - der Preise und der Auswahl halber. Und natürlich hat es auch bei mir schon mal Probleme gegeben. Wie zum Beispiel bei diesem Shop, Chinabuye. Meine Ware ist leider nie angekommen. Habe es aber sowieso noch geschafft via PayPal mein Geld zurückzubekommen. Bei dem Kleinkram wäre der finanzielle Verlust aber zum Glück ohnehin nicht groß gewesen (LED Strips und ich weiß gar nicht mehr, was noch). Diesen Shop würde ich also nicht empfehlen.

Habe aber bereits viele andere Shops getestet. Und bei so Größen wie Dealextreme etc. wurde ich noch nicht enttäuscht. Für die "Neulinge" würde ich auch erst mal empfehlen, große, etablierte Onlineshops auszuprobieren. Dann verliert man vielleicht langsam die Angst und kann sich an andere Händler ranwagen. Und klar: es gibt immer mal wieder schwarze Schafe. Aber die gibt es in Deutschland auch.
Wer auf eine große Auswahl und günstige Preise aus ist, sollte sich ruhig mal trauen.
