I could understand what they are saying since I have similar situation when I bought something via store online from overseas, or export products to another country.

Generally, we make conclusion about “DHgate Scam” as below:

Firstly, Logistics problem: Even DHL/UPS can’t always delivery all products according to exact same time that they promised from official declaration, the main reason is that they can’t control all the customs staff on all the country, which always exist all kinds of conflicts from individuals or unit group profit.

Secondly, Supplier Problem: We know DHgate really have supplier supervisor to inspect their supplier, however, they are not wholesaler, but wholesale platform for small business trader and factory, they can’t control all products quality, besides, suppliers divided into different business type, such as traders, factory, etc.

How to avoid scamming or getting bad products from dishonest suppliers?

Solution 1, Research credibility of the supplier in terms of transaction records, positive feedback percentage and other related details listed on their products and company profile’s pages.


Solution 2, Request support from DHgate staff.

    Dear readers,

    I can confirm that is a part of international fraud and scam.

    Month ago I set 2 orders on

    1. 512gb USB Stick, it was lot with minimum of 10 pieces order number: PO#1336400870

    2. WIFI IP Camera order nummer PO# 1336488502

    Both was with free shipping.

    USB stick appear to be 4gb instead of 512gb and cameras came without wall outlet-converters, so cameras are useless until I buy extra converter that costs almost the same as cameras.

    I contacted immediately administration of They answer your emails and ask you to contact seller or after sale department, but it is only a trick, that after 20 or 30 emails you gave up. If you don’t, then they just block you (DHgate and dhgate facebook account), so you loose any possibility to reach them.

    It is obvious, that it is well organized international fraud organization.

    Be warned, stay away from this scammers!

    Best Regards

    Avtandil Nadibaidze

    Don’t order people.You have been warned.China is collecting on that trillion dollar debt from the American people through DHgate.However if you like lineing up someone else pockets with cash or making a donation to this company,well be my guess,Just don’t expect them to actually send you what you want.

    DHGAte buyer protection is a joke and it is totally totally set up to favor the seller.

    This is a review of both the seller “cecelia” and the website “DHGate”. I bought this phone from seller Cecelia almost 3 months ago. I received the phone in time. The problem: the phone was listed as “4GB ROM memory” however it had only total memory of 2.4GB (1.27 internal and 1.17 external). This was checked with several apps. All of them read the same memory info. The used memory was shown separately and listed the memory used by system as well. The total was 2.4GB including all used memory. Cecelia wanted me to use an app called “An tu tu” to test the memory. That of course showed the same numbers. During several weeks of correspondence with “Cecelia” they kept claiming that the system memory does not show up and real memory is 4GB. Sending the phone back to China is not an option because shipping costs too much. Finally I opened a dispute through DHGate. They asked me to send “evidence” to which I mailed them the photos of the phone showing the system info from several apps. However GHGate seemed to just want to delay things and run out the clock. They repeatedly kept asking me to “send evidence” even though I had already sent it 5 times. Finally after the 5th time they said “we have received evidence however you must use the attached app to test the phone and send photos from that”. They wanted me to use the app “Ztest” “within two days or we will release the payment to seller”. So I used the “Z test” to check the phone memory. Of course this showed the same numbers. This test also clearly showed total memory of 1.27Gb internal and 1.1 external. However this was still not acceptable to DHGate. Their conclusion “this number does not include system memory and with system memory the phone has 4GB, Case closed”. The second problem this phone has: it claims to have 3G however to date (3 months) the 3G function on this phone has not worked. It works only in 2G frequencies (on T-mobile). Other minor problems: 1. poor instruction manual on the use of the phone. 2. Although it is Android 4.2, it has many little quirks and took long time to learn to use the phone. 3. I have not been able to find a case/cover for this phone here locally. 4. The phone came with screen saver film on it with many bubbles under it. I complained about this to the seller and asked them that they send me another film. No response. Beware buying China phones in general. The “satisfaction guarantee” from DHGate is a make believe promise too. I did not heed many other reviews with similar complaints. Be careful.

    I ordered a pageant dress and supplied the measurements. Dress came, but was 3 inches shorter than promised. Seller said it was too late for replacement and couldn’t I have a tailor fix it. I asked how? I don’t have material to match! They offered to send me some fabric…. really? Like sewing a band on the bottom of the dress would fix things. I asked for refund and ordered a replacement elsewhere. After 5 days, per DHGate policy, I issued the dispute. Seller wanted me to pay to return, I saw no reason for me to pay out of my pocket for something not in my control. After 3 weeks, DHgate just informed me they’d released payment to seller as I should have disputed within 7 days. Their stated policy does not list a deadline.

    I will only pay through paypal. It looks like paypal will not do business with this company anymore – they most likely get burned covering all the scam transactions

    I own your 8gb stainless steel spy camera watch. It keeps perfect time and seems to be everything your web-site
    promised. But the English manual is impossible to understand. I need a better manual or possibly a CD so I can
    learn to use all the other features the watch offers. Please let me know what you can do to help me.

      Hi Jose,
      I just checked these three stores from, it should be safe to buy from them, but we suggested that you buy from factory directly, many China factory provide small order online.
