Gearbest started this year with horrible reputation, there’s no doubt. Countless of threads complaining about missing orders or bad customer service. But as with everything there is also a good side of it but often overshadowed by negatives.
Personally I’ve had a generally good experience with GB, last year I spent over in more than $1,500 in about 20 orders and not a single item was lost.
I always add tracking option, and since the last couple months I have used America line / America Direct / IB (International Bridge) and delivery times have been pretty consistent, sometimes even surprisingly quick.
This option drops down when you chose “Priority Direct Mail”. Doesn’t require paying extra for tracking number.
Here are some examples, these are my last 3 orders.
For this shipping method you MUST use this website for tracking: http://www.myib.com/ , clicking the tracking # on GB website does not work. Pasting the # on google directly won’t work. Using 17track.net often won’t work.
If you have had good or bad experience with this shipping method please chime in, and if you really want to buy from GB and don’t know which shipping method to use, try this one out.
And before you mark this as spam or assume that I have anything to do with GB, please know that I submitted this not for GB, but for you. I’m tired of seeing GB complaints in the main page every time I visit the forum.
