* Here is the feed back from a reader called Terryll Rex, who sent me the private message via usfreeads classified adverts system. "Check into DH gate more closely. You SAY buyer protection. And , well, yes they have escrow. BUT their escrow will ALWAYS side with the seller. I purchased tow white gold rings set with diamonds and what I received looked NOTHING like what was in the photos. AND they were NOT white gold, only a silver finish AND they were rhinestones NOT diamonds. Their escrow sided with the seller and refuses me a refund.

New Update 2 Shipping Tips: How to make a smooth purchase and get your item on time
1 Free Shipping” in DHgate.com only apply for those contry that the seller has selected to offer. For example, the seller may have set “Free Shipping” for the USA, UK, Canada. To see if your country is included in free shipping list, click “Calculate shipping costs” on the checkout page and enter the name of your country. Make sure that your country was on the list before you buy, or you need to pay extra money.
2 “Estimated Transit Time” is the estimated time starting when the purchase order is dispatched to the reception of the items. The actual delivery time depends on the date the seller dispatches the purchase order and the destination of the shipment. So the best way to guarantee the delivery is to communicate with the seller and check it for sure.
3In the checkout process, shipping cost is calculated on a per item basis and may not reflect the shipping cost quoted by the seller which may be less as some sellers offer a reduced shipping cost for the combined shipping of multiple items. So that is why your shopping cost is showed different. When you order multiple items from one seller, you can contact the seller to ask for a reduction in shipping cost. In most cases, sellers are willing to do this. After all, most power seller can offer lots of products, they may have mutiple accounts focusing on different categories. It is not so hard to reduce your shipping cost.
