One of the Chinese company GearBest which I like the most after Banggood and Aliexpress. The GearBest India, which you could trust to get the products on time and second, is safe and secure.
Like Banggood India, I have reviewed it, the same I am going to review gearbest India, how it is best and why we have to buy from them.
The first-ever product which I have bought from Gearbest is a USB 3.0 charger. The total cost of this product, Including shipping price and insurance, was Rs550/- which is lower than any other available in India. Currently, this product has been discontinued, but you can buy an alternative from the gearbest.
Whenever you feel uncomfortable when purchasing from the Chinese website, make sure to buy a lower item like below $10 and process through Paypal to secure your payment better if some tragedy happened. However, this will not happen with Gearbest because of their support and return/refund policy.
What is the Gearbest India shipping method for Indian Buyers?
We have a couple of options to select which one you should go for it but let me advise which one you have to select for the secure shipping method. There are four shipping methods – Unregistered, Registered Air Mail, Priority Line, and Expedited Shipping.
Unregistered Air Mail – Never select this method. You won’t get a tracking number.
Registered Air Mail – Only select this method when you don’t have the Priority line option. You will get the tracking number, but India’s delivery time will take around 20-30 days.
Priority Line – I always recommend this option because of the affordable price, delivery time of 10-14 days, and delivery by Gati.com courier service, which can be trackable.
Expedited Shipping – Always fast, deliver the item in 3-5 days but expensive than above shipping methods. DHL is the service and highly on the customs radar.
Is there any way to avoid customs duty?
Unfortunately, there is no option in gearbest to avoid customs duty or reimburse half or full amount of customs charges. No charges if the amount is below Rs2,000 or asks the gearbest to lower the price through live chat or email an invoice to avoid customs duty once you placed the order.
How to place the order?
First, make sure to change the currency to INR, given at the top of the website, you can see the actual price of the product and shipping charges. Select the product which you want to buy.
Select Priority Line(India Express) ignore the text “Only ship item with battery” for the shipping method. The Shipping Guarantee option is optional, but I recommend you to buy it. In this option, gearbest will resend the item for free if it is damaged or lost during transit.
If you have any promotional code, you could enter it there or find one “My account” or search on Google for the same.
For payment methods, try to go with the Paypal option or buy through a credit card.
That is it—a simple method, like any other shopping website. I know you guys a bit scared when buying from other country shopping sites, that is why I recommend you to go with Paypal if you are too much about your credit card information.
If you want to ask me any questions, let me know, I will definitely help you out.
