You can add credit card, debit card or even transfer money from RHB bank to PayPal account directly. It’s great that GearBest uses PayPal because PayPal has Buyer Protection that covers most online purchases. Yup, worry free with PayPal as your backup.

Why buy from GearBest? GearBest has the best price for all the electronic gadgets during promotion. Take one of my buying experience as example. I managed to bought Xiaomi Mi 6 smartphone at $369.99 + insurance $8.40 = $378.39. Great deal indeed even lower than original China selling price – 2499 RMB (~$381.70).

100% risk-free warranty. GearBest provides 7 Day Dead on Arrival (DOA) Guarantee (link).

And there is the usual One Year Repair Warranty as well.

For Malaysia, GearBest provides free shipping through Priority Line – SEA Express most of the time. Use that and you should be safe. At least for all my cases…

How long will it take to arrive Malaysia? For in stock product, around 1 week. GearBest uses Kerry Express / ABX to ship usually (City-Link Express sometime). You can track through Kerry Website. And much more details one with ABX Website when reached ABX warehouse at Malaysia. Take a look on below example.

    Do you ever experience item missing or never deliver to you after payment?

    • None so far. Kerry / ABX is reliable. Furthermore, recommended to pay extra insurance for expensive product like smartphone. GearBest will replace new one if package is missing / damage.

    I don recommend GearBest, they once gave me an item for review, turns out to be fake when I verify with the manufacturer.

    • Hmm… First time hearing this. What product is that?

      • Jimmy

        some xiaomi product with serial number

        • Haha… I just used Xiaomi IMEI verify system to check. Both my Note 4X and Mi 6 IMEI are not valid. So they are fake?

          • Jimmy

            100% fake… I did email them and they say they will get back to me… till now, nothing. They told me it was impossible. You know, they even sell their products cheaper than the manufacturer, how is that possible?

            • Cheaper than manufacturer RRP is possible during promotion, flash sales or when they bought a lot from them with huge discount.
