What lay behind cheap products, which are from China factory?

February 18, 2011

Nowadays, you can pay less, but get many products from China factory.

But pls pay attention at these phenomenon, and think about that some problems you will get when you buy it.

1.Poor quality-

Product is easy to be broken in couple months, even in weeks. You pay less and need to pay again soon.

2.Unsafe product-

Mostly you cannot find any certificates on it, it means that it’s really possible to cause some damage to life or loss of property due to some unsafe products, and do you think that China factory will make it up for it or not?

3.Little profit margin to reseller-

Reseller can only earn very little money by selling this kind products to you, in the other words, reseller won’t have enough profit margin to offer better after-sales service. Refund/return might not be possible, and how about your warranty?

Here’s a real story and just happened in America.

便宜的代價 – MADE IN CHINA

MADE IN CHINA的東西不都是不好,但為何MADE IN CHINA常與劣等品質畫上等號? 可見便宜的背後有著許多人不願去面對的隱憂

1.品質差、很快就壞

2.產品無任何認證、甚至對消費者、環境等造成危險(害)

3.廠商利潤低,不願意負責售後服務;除非碰到很有責任感的經銷商

大陸製MTB腳踏車燈這二年在國際市場快速走紅,最大原因就是亮、便宜,幾乎是同等級產品的1/3~1/2,時間會證明的,當大家趨之若鶩之後,便宜背後隱藏的危機開始浮現

美國網購通路GeoMan Gear是難得的負責廠商,當Magicshine產品發生鋰電池起火事件後,隨即公告產品召回,警告消費者停止使用避免危險再發生
