Initially the factory visit at Qingdao Xiaodao Food Machinery Company and the trial of the machine was satisfactory. I meanwhile lost trust in the manufacturer, when I dug deeper and found sources disclosing delay tactics and manipulation that I have and am now experiencing.
The Chinese supplier Ningbo Denlux-Shijia Home Products Manufacturing Corp. tried to change the trade assurance contract we have made (and both accepted) through Alibaba. He did this in the middle of the production time. I learned that even a 2year Alibaba gold supplier with 3rd party inspection is not to be trusted.
I purchased on AliExpress.com from the merchant called Battery #1 Shop (Shenzhen Herculesi Co., Ltd) the FREE Shipping High Capacity Electric Bike Battery 48V 20Ah Lithium Battery 1000W.
I traveled to Shenzhen to visit the facilities of Jinhua Color Printing Products, since my initial idea was to continue to work with them, but unfortunately they are not in serious business. They quote but they didn’t deliver the right upscale promised product and they tried to ask more money for the Gloss UV.
I purchased some fitness equipment to test here in New Zealand as samples, before I placed a large order. The total value was around 800USD. The sellers name was Lena and seemed very professional, just like every other legitimate Chinese run company I had dealt with in the past. Alarm bells started going off when she claimed she had not received my money!
I got her quotation by my email and I fond the price cheap compare to other suppliers, so I just start with communicate with this supplier in China, by what’s app. Then he shared artworks of pen with USB for approval and I placed the order and paid 50% in advance.
