The Chinese online shop Banggood is one of the big players on the market. Here you will find everything your heart desires, whether technology or a new T-shirt. Ordering from the Far East is also becoming increasingly popular in Germany. Because on the one hand there is hardly anything that is not offered in the shops. On the other hand, the prices, which are usually well below the European ones, are also right.
In the following, we will show you which technology deals are currently particularly worthwhile and compare the prices with those of local dealers or with Chinese, if the product is not available for sale in Germany. Then we will give you tips for shopping at Banggood.
Banggood has several warehouses in different countries. Depending on where these are, the shipping time also changes. If you have found a product that you would like to order, you often have the choice between different warehouses, sometimes also within the EU.
The delivery time from China is around 10 to 15 working days, from the USA even up to 30 working days. If your goods are sent from England, Europe or the Czech Republic, for example, you will receive them much earlier – usually within 3 to 5 working days.
Note: If you change the warehouse for a product, the price often changes too. So take a look at the different options and choose the cheapest offer.
If you are impatient, you can also look explicitly at Banggood for products that can be delivered within a week. There is also a separate category in the online shop. The goods offered here are mostly sent from EU countries and will be with you within a few days.
There are no flat-rate shipping costs at Banggood. These vary from product to product. However, anyone who thinks that shipping from China is incredibly expensive is wrong. Shipping is very often free, usually a few dollars. However, there are exceptions here as well.
If you order larger products that are bulky and heavy, shipping can easily increase to over 50 dollars. The magic word here is: EU warehouse. Most of the time, shipping within the EU is free. The following applies: Check the options and see how the prices for the product and shipping from the different warehouses differ.
From July 1, 2021, the exemption limit of 22 dollars will no longer apply to orders from third countries. This means that you have to pay import duties for goods from non-EU countries such as China, the USA or England at the latest from this point in time.
The import sales tax is usually 19 and rarely 7 percent. For goods with a value of more than 150 dollars, customs duties may also be due. In our great guide “Import technology“you will find all the important in formation on the topic.
The number of payment methods at Banggood is manageable. You have the choice between PayPal and credit card. In addition, the merchant offers BGpay, its own payment service, where you can collect bonus points that give you discounts.
You top up the BGpay account from your bank account by transfer – it is more or less a credit account that you use exclusively for shopping at Banggod.
Returns and guarantee
Returns and guarantees are of course also available from a Chinese online shop. Bangood grants you a 30-day right of return. If you don’t like a product, you can send it back. You will be reimbursed for the value of the goods, but not the shipping costs. You have to take care of the return shipment.
The return shipment to China or even to an EU country should often be uneconomical for reasons of cost. So only order expensive products that you really want to have. In addition, Bangood has a 7-day DOA (Dead on Arrival) product guarantee. If a device is damaged or does not work properly, you can replace it free of charge.
You receive a guarantee of 180 days on ordered goods. If you experience quality problems or a defect during this time, you can request a refund or an exchange. However, clothing, cell phone accessories, household appliances and a few other products are excluded from this
Do you want to track your order and know where your package is right now? With DHL, Hermes and Co. you won’t get far with parcels from China. We recommend you to use the website 17Track.
