Today I am going to review the Gearbest in very simple words, a lot of China’s website is quite famous for global shipping, and all this started just a few years ago, when the Internet penetration has reached the extreme, so that China took great advantage of this user base, one by one shopping sites started launching, In the meanwhile, a new site has taken its step in the Internet world in 2014, which is today known as Gearbest, which provides delivery throughout the world. I consider a very commendable step, so that, to the people of the world, the right thing is reaching the right price, I appreciate this commendable step.
I myself am a user of GearBest & I am quite happy too, there is no point in this, that, I am very much appreciating GearBest, the only thing I found to be true is that I am talking to you, later you will be aware of all these things when you place one or more of your orders, in the coming points, I will bring out its drawbacks too.

First Shopping Experience with GearBest – 100% True
It’s a matter of 2015. First time I reach GearBest website by searching on Google for some sports camera, before that I did not hear about the company, so I was little bit confuse to buy that product, so again I refresh the page and explore few more products, and realize that this is not a small site, even I can get so many other gadgets on it, then there was a little faith, and then I start reading review and description of that camera, so it was elaborated description with their actual values, so there was a little more happiness on my face, and my Confidence became a little more firm, immediately after this I select expedited shipping & click on Add to Cart button on the site and apply a coupon in which I get $5 discount just after click on Proceed to Checkout, now the website gives me option to create account, that which I did not already have, so i made it, as soon as it was made I have got some more options from inside, such as to fill your address, selection of available shipping methods with their rates, final payable amount and finally get option to Pay by credit or debit card directly (now it has option with PayPal, that time PayPal option not enabled), after paying total amount I receive confirmation mail from GearBest regarding placing order, after few hours (14 Hours) within my account I check tracking code of DHL which I usually track once a day.
- Courier First Day Status – Shipment picked up, Customs status updated, and Arrived at Sort Facility HONG KONG – HONG KONG.
- Product Tracking Day 2 Status – Processed at HONG KONG – HONG KONG, Departed Facility in HONG KONG – HONG KONG, Arrived at Sort Facility of My Country, Clearance processing complete in my country.
- Product Tracking Day 3 Status – Processed at my country, Arrived at Sort Facility, Departed Facility in my country
- Product Tracking Day 4, 5 Half Day Status – with delivery courier, Delivered – Signed for by Me
Third day status updated, there is a status show in DHL tracking, that product has gone for the customs clearance, DHL customer executive call me on phone and ask for documents (Electricity Bill, Photograph, ID Proof, Address Proof) for customs clearance, and they complete customs clearance on my behalf, but whatever customs duty amount was, I had to pay at time of delivery, which is approximately $14.5, on the second day, I got the product at my house. I am very happy to see my camera in the perfect packaging pack, then I got 100% trust on Gearbest, too by all means, and then after that, I have got most of my gadgets right from here, they all came to me in the right way, and that I am very happy. Now I’ll put the second order in front of you, which had more than $1000 items.
This is my 16th order which I am going to explain next, 15 orders I have already done with GearBest, all the 15 orders I get in the perfect condition, but I had to pay customs duty extras after coming to my country, the rest did not have to face any problem, I had purchased all the products for my personal use which is present in the exact condition, most products are mobile phones, some of which are 3G and 4G handsets, all those phones are still in running very well, whether it’s a battery or a performance, the camera and smart watch are also included in it, whose quality was also excellent, I use smartwatch for daily running, and the sports camera is able to use only once or sometimes twice a month. But there is a sense in the smartwatch, have been using for two years continuously.
Another Shopping Experience with GearBest Order Value $1000
It is an end of 2016, when I had placed this order, well, if I talk about its real price it was $1036 and I also added a coupon code of $25 in it, so by this time I had full faith in GearBest, that too by all means, whether it is the money transaction or the product quality and shipping.
So at this time I had received my order in about 6 days & this time 2 products were together, one mobile phone and Xiaomi’s notebook laptop, I like the mobile phone and laptop from the design and build up quality, I forgot to tell you that mobile phone was Xiaomi Mi 5 and Laptop was Xiaomi Air 13, both the devices are amazing from its performance and design point of view, That was the day, from I loved the Xiaomi brand, now I have bought Mi 6 phone for my friend as well & he is also very happy with it.
The most important notable point in this shopping is, I have to pay customs charges, but that’s ok to me, only because in my country the products I have ordered is not available or if I wanted to buy those so it cost more than double on online retailers like eBay, so it’s better to pay customs charges for those instead of paying more extra on your own country, and I adopted the same way to order them, which I used in the above order.
So all these decisions depend on you, whether you should order products from GearBest or not, with us, it has been a very pleasant experience. Everything else is OK, but there is an important suggestion for GearBest, that they should open their fulfillment centers in every country according to their user volume so that customers can escape from the Customs Charges and get the fastest delivery.
The above review is not even a paid, we have presented it on the basis of our shopping experience & delivery services if you want to visit GearBest’s shopping website, click here.
