Purchasing guide: hints
Is GearBest trustworthy and reliable? Standard question for international eCommerce companies.
Here some suggestions:
During checkout there is an option to add insurance. We suggest to add insurance for orders above 30NZ$. Orders with insurance are eligible to full reimbursement on the selected payment method in the unlikely event of the parcel getting lost during the shipping procces. Orders with no insurance above 30NZ$ might not receive full reimbursement (usually 50%) in case of a lost parcel. Therefor we suggest you to buy insurance and to decrease the low chance of having problems during the process even more.
