Read the descriptions, look at all the pictures. What will often happen is its an accessory that i worth not much and all the pictures but the last one are showing it in use.

 

People buy off there looking only at the cropped title and first picture and act all suprised when the $2 vape just ends up being the coil when the listing was for somethingsomethingsomethingsomethingsomething something replacement coil. And the last photo is the coil and the rest just show what it fits into and the description was quite clear that it was just the coil.

 

Its too much work compared to aliexpress, but they dont seem to be kicking off the trademark violating products like aliexpress does. You cant even find anything searching for nintendo on aliexpress now because of all the trademark BS.

For things like SD cards https://www.dx.com/ is my goto over ali etc. DX has been around for a long time and there is good product feedback built up on most products. Everything is also free (all be it VERY slow normally) shipping. ...

 

 

Just be aware that they vet the feedback.  I bought an el cheapo gopro-like action cam from them once.  Not expecting a lot for $35 odd and not worthwhile sending it back but the picture quality was pretty much unwatchable.  Provided feedback along the lines of 'not expecting much for the price but it was awful' and gave it two stars.  They never published my feedback or rating.

Handsomedan:

 

My elderly dad recently bought a P20 Pro from Wish...needless to say, it's a lookalike that has few features of the actual P20 Pro...but he's happy with it and it works. 

 

 

they sell so many things for 10% of the price. I wonder what games the Wish Xbox will play ...

Aliexpress here have bought hundreds of items off them over the years and never once had something not turn up, From a few dollars to a few thousand never had a problem with them. Cheaper items take time to arrive but more costly time arrive really fast.

Wish looks dodge.

 

But I have purchased hundreds of items worth a few $K in total with BG, GB and Ali and have had very few issues and only 1 that was not satisfactorily resolved.
