Because of exchange loss, financial tax, etc, sometimes, it looks like that our price is a little bit higher than the factory’s price. However, in fact, our total price may still be lower than some suppliers and what you get from your paid price covers a lot more than you expected. Product quality is always the most important factor, then competitive price, especially for small orders. For big orders, typically, we can get a lower price from suppliers. Besides this, service (before, during, and after-sale) is also very important.

How am I going to protect my payment if anything goes wrong when import from China
We totally understand your concern, unfortunately, it’s hard to guarantee that there are no defective products. There are couple of reasons. First of all, all factories/suppliers cannot guarantee 100% of the products are good during manufacture. Second, there is a chance that some products can be damaged during the shipment. Since the manufacturers/suppliers typically don’t take any responsibility once the products are shipped out, so it’s hard for us to take that responsibility too. However, we do our best to minimize the chance of having a significant amount of defective products shipped out. We do pre-shipment inspection carefully to check the quality and if anything is found, we will try to communicate with the manufacturer/supplier before goods shipped out.
