Although Gearbest leaves an England-based office address on its official website for contact needs, its major operation centre as well as warehouse facilities should be positioned in Shenzhen. It is, in nature, a Chinese online international store serving global buyers. From the Norton Secured (powered by Verisign) identity verification page, I noticed that Gearbest.com belongs to SHENZHEN GLOBALEGROW E-COMMERCE CO LIMITED, a tested legitimate Chinese company owning a number of shopping sites.
I personally believe that Gearbest.com is a legit site after a thorough investigation into it. Here are my reasons:
1. It is backed by the powerful e-commerce company based in Shenzhen.
2. The shopping site is protected by Norton and users don’t have to worry about information leaking while using it.
3. It accepts safe payment methods such as Paypal or credit cards.
4. I have received a quality-made product from the online store. Click here to read my review of the novelty glasses offered by Gearbest.com.
What Gearbest.com impresses me most is the refreshing style of its homepage. Being simple and neat, it looks so comfortable and every product showcased there looks amazingly cool. Just as how it advertizes itself, it is a store where we can buy all kinds of cool gear, including cell phones and accessories, tablet PCs and accessories, car electronics, audio and video, LED lights, lifestyle supplies, men’s clothing and more. A total of over 100 categories are carried by the store and it is a good place to find inspiration on how to lead a cool and fashionable life with lovely gadgets.
Like other popular gadget shops such as Banggood.com or Focalprice.com, Gearbest.com offers a competitive wholesale price for each product plus worldwide free shipping. Some gadgets there are available at as low as under $1.
One great attraction of Gearbest is its customer-friendly warranties and return and exchange policies. If you are not satisfied with the product purchased from the site, you can return it for a refund within 45 days of receiving the package. Also, you can send it back to the store for an exchange within 3 months of receipt. In addition, the store provides free repair and lifetime technical support.
