Prices don't look 50% off. I can't justify it but some of those prices don't look that cheap compared to Eacheng main shop.

The prices on the main website don't include shipping.

I checked a couple items. Palio Hidden Dragon 40+ is $16 on eacheng.net (not including shipping) and $10.26 on AliExpress (Tianjin Guanghe Store, including shipping). They do seem to be running the same sale on some items on eacheng.net, though - Palio Macro Pro on AliExpress is $24.83 (normally $49.65) including shipping. On eacheng.net (not including shipping the "member price" is $41.79, while "your price" is $25.91 (in most cases both prices are the same). Palio Macro Era, however, isn't on sale on AliExpress, while on eacheng.net it's discounted down to $27.76 (not including shipping). Palio Hadou Japanese Sponge isn't even available on eacheng.net, on AliExpress it's $7.88 - I paid $12 a few days ago, drat!

I guess if you wanted to try Palio Macro/Pro/Era now is the time to get it. Be sure to check ALL their outlets - three on AliExpress, the main website at eacheng.net AND E-bay ("china-friend") for the best price.

I've got questions for u guys.

The descriptions on aliexpress say free shipping but there's also a shipping cost mentioned on the same page with the item description. So is that 'free shipping' when ordering from certaim countries or do they take out the shippong ost when you finalize your order?

Sorry for the noob question :?:

Hi choon
If it says free shipping then it will be free standard shipping which is around 3 weeks. If you want faster shipping then it will be a cost. You can select this at checkout. Hope that helps.

Yes there are many fakes among many bargains... so buyers beware...

You can always ask member here if they think it's a fake... a few members here seem to use them regularly, so they would have a good idea. ;)

THE BEST RELIABLE MARKETPLACE.

The surest way to buy genuine DHS products is to take to DHS procurers directly.

I recently discovered an AliExpress shop which is owned by DHS Shahghai manufacturer. They supply from DHS warehouse directly.
The goods not cheap, but all products assured to be of 100% authentity.

At times AliExpress have a Big Sale Day, price off 15-30%

My take on AliExpress is that if you order from stores which you know are reliable (in my case, the three run by Eacheng, see previous posts) then the merchandise is most likely genuine. Also, if the item is cheap, there's no point in making and selling counterfeits. It's the expensive stuff (like National H3, or Tenergy, or those $60-100 Ebony blades) that you need to be careful of. No point in making and selling fake Reactor Corbor or Blutenkirsche 868.

Glitches do happen - once, New-new Shop suddenly wasn't free shipping anymore. It took three complaints and two days before they actually LOOKED and fixed it! (The first couple times they assumed I had somehow chosen one of the express shipping options by mistake.)

Tianjin Guanghe (i.e. Eacheng) is having coupons again. $2 off $12 minimum order for the next seven days. Except everyone's allowed THREE coupons. Don't think you can use all three at a time, although maybe you can get $6 off if you buy $36 worth of stuff...

ANOTHER Eacheng.

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/1146130

I bought two Reactor blades off them:

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Shi ... 99906.html

Got a message from "ZBT" (if you've ever received packages from any of the Eachengs, you'll know the significance of this..). Blades arrived today, sure enough...

Image

This one doesn't seem to have as much stock as the others, they're running a 5% off sale for the next 2 hours.

So how do you recognize a Eacheng? The conclusive proof is, when you get your stuff, it was mailed by one "Tian Zhi Bin" (or Zhi Bin Tian) from an address involving "Room 1901", in Tianjin, China. Other clues - you poke around the website and find "Eacheng.net" brand rubber protectors. They will usually send you one or two of these free when you buy rubber or blades, though I think they're running low or running out, because the last few orders, they've sent "61 Second" brand ones instead.

I got three packages from them today - one was from a "new" outlet that I suspected was Eacheng but didn't look much like them (see earlier post) containing two Reactor blades ($7 each). The other two came from one of the more established shops, one had some Double Fish 1-star "new material" (i.e. plastic) balls, and the other a HRT Red Crystal Carbon blade.

Image

Here's the weird part. Before I opened the package, I noticed the lightest one cost the most to ship!

Image

Package 1
Contents: HRT Crystal Carbon blade
Declared weight: 0.17 kg. Actual weight: 190 g. Postage: RMB 42.36 (this being a little under USD 7, order was $11.45 including coupons and 50% discount.)

Package 2
Contents: 2X Reactor DJ200 blades
Declared weight: 0.457 kg. Actual weight: 277 g. Postage: RMB 15.88 (USD 2.60 on a $14 order)

Package 3
Contents: 3X 6 packs Double Fish plastic balls
Declared weight: 0.11 kg. Actual weight: 191 g. Postage: RMB 22.66 (a little under USD 4, on a $14 order)

Go figure! :lol:
