Nowadays, many oversea orders are finished without any face to face meeting, and a lot of customers benefit from them. They save a lot of time and money, and what they need to do is waiting for the coming of goods. If you hesitate to move forward, what is preventing you?
In the past years, JEJA International Co, Ltd has sold Christmas lights to customers from different countries, and there are many beginners of oversea purchasing among them. From their most frequently asked questions, we summariezed the following apprehension. These must have disturbed you as well.Money Security
Perhaps the major stumbling block to purchasing oversea is the existence of scams. You can find people complain online that they sent the money but never receive the products. Scams always start with hacking into our email, watching our communication history, and then create two fake email addresses to talk with seller and buyer separately. In this way, they become a email transfer station and cut the connection between us. When we send the invoice, they just edit the bank details and get the money in their pockets. Scams damage business, and hurt the reputation that our real sellers strive hard to keep.
Good news is that situation has changed now. There are a lot of ways to ensure the security of your money. For small orders, many companies accept Paypal. You can always get your money back if you don’t receive your goods as you pay by Paypal. You can also pay via Alibaba Tradeassurance, from this name you will know what it is made for. If you pay it bank to bank, we call it T/T, please make sure the bank beneficiary is the same name as the company name you are ordering from. If there is anything wrong, just contact your supplier with the contact information on the official website. For us, it is firstname.lastname@example.org .Quality of Products
For a long time, the “Made in China” label has become synonymous with low-cost and low-quality. Does Made in China label stand for poor quality? We really don’t think so. Most of the time, importers and distributors ask for low prices to make them competitive in market, that’s why the quality of many Chinese products so cheap. We always told our customers that you can save at least $50 on repairing if you spend $1 more on Chinese manufacturers. Below are some Christmas lights made by us. If you are interested in them, we can send you samples to check the quality.Shipping Problems
Some customers worry about shipping as they lack of importing experience. International logistics make it very easy now. For small parcel, we always delivery them by express, like DHL and Fedex. It is door to door, and the shipping company will contact you to help on custom clearance if it is needed. For air shipping or sea shipping, the agent on arrival port will help you on everything. A professional salesman will recommend you the best method to ship your goods, and you don’t need any extra knowledge to import Christmas lights from China.

They don’t have so many different products in stock, but they can make any product on their catalog after you place the order.
You can try looking for Christmas yard decorations on Amazon or local store, and check how many different designs you can get. Below are some examples of what you can get from Chinese suppliers.
At the same time, as many factories make Christmas lights to order, custon designs are always welcomed. It is quite common for they to make according to a pictures from our customer, or even with an idea from their customers’ words.
There are many benefits of buying Christmas lights and light decorations from China, but it doesn’t mean that it is always good to order oversea. For example, if you are trying to buy 2PCS or 5PCS of string lights, ordering on Amazon or local store are absolutely good choices. However, if you want to buy in bulk, try some special designs, or prepare for an light project, you can contact a Chinese manufacturer or supplier, and start your first step of oversea purchasing.
