Purchasing guide: Checklist
Is GearBest trustworthy and reliable? Standard question for international eCommerce companies.
Here some suggestions:
Warranty & Returns
All products are subject to 1 year warranty if not differently specified on the product page. Additionally, you have a 45 days time-frame to return the item if you are not satisfied with your purchase.
Altering the product voids this warranty so please make sure that possible software updates origin from a trustworthy source.
Under very rare circumstances you will receive a dead on arrival product or a wrong product. Few hints:
(*) If you have to send back the broken or wrong product, GearBest will reimburse your shipping costs up to 50USD. Follow carefully the instruction provided in the RMA letter. The parcel will take time to reach GearBest. Once arrived will be processed in around 7-10 business days. If you urge the item, we suggest you to go for reimbursement and consider a new item.
During checkout GearBest grants you the option to book an extra shipping insurance. We suggest to add this for orders above 20$AU. Orders with insurance that get lost during transit are eligible to full reimbursement on the selected payment method. Orders with no insurance above 20$AU might not receive full reimbursement (usually 50%) in the case the parcel is lost by the shipping company.
The product page will state the estimate shipping date. In most cases the processing times will be no longer than 1-3 unless stated otherwise.
During peak season there might be delays due to high volumes. If you see your order facing delays, open a ticket on support.gearbest.com
The official gearbest support is available at support.gearbest.com. Any official change to your order has to be initiated through this channel. Please be aware that opening a ticket about an unsent order will lead to a freeze of the shipment process until the problem is solved.
If you open a PayPal dispute for a yet not shipped item, GearBest will reimburse the order.
If you open a PayPal case for a shipped item, GearBest will reimburse once the item is shipped to GearBest. Unfortunately the buyer has to take over the shipping costs after contacting the support to receive your unique return receipt.
We suggest to open a PayPal case only if the purpose is reimbursement.
