    I'm in California and have purchased from DHGate about oh 20 times ..... my personal record is 10 days from placing the order with Sunshine Glass co. (a real factory) to arrival in my PO box!
    Unheard of !
    They too have an 'in' - free shipping and it was labelled 'express' red label. Not bad !
    Obviously some sellers go cheap on shipping and others pay a lil xtra to get it here quick.
    All we do is choose 'free shipping' it's up to them to pay for fast or slow.
    Conversely, I've had other sellers (long time since they were erased off my purchase history, they only keep the history for 1 year. Don't remember the sellers) take 1.5 months to get here.
    For those of us who have used DHgate for the past few years, we've seen the site get more functional and the shipping times greatly reduced. Great to see !
    Friend of mine just got a 'hello kitty' bong - took 1.5 months - I'll ask her the seller name.
    Cheers !

    Finally heard back from seller yingin5. They will be sending me another one for replacement no questions asked after they saw the pictures of the crack right in the tip of the mouthpiece. Sent me a tracking # so everything should be good and they still have great customer services as I see it. Just the national holiday got in the way to slow the process down some. Im happy now.

    I think I have a new record to report. Tracking says it was shipping in China March 5. I saw that it departed China on March 7, and now 2 days later i'm expecting delivery today in Canada! Maybe they saw how long I was waiting due to CNY? Not sure, but this is unprecedented!

    @biohacker my 21 year old got me to buy it.
    I can use a big mouthpiece if need be!

    However a smaller mouthpiece is what I perfere!
    Today[​IMG] is CANNABIS DAY so maybe tomorrow I'll use it with a setup I have waiting to be used!
    @biohacker I like this smaller moUthpiece.

    Ataxian, do I see nougat? They don't look like small mouthpieces either!:lol:

    I did think of you today my CA bro- today I wake and bake! A rarity, I always begin each day with extensive lung clearance routine which takes many hours before I can consider food or cannabis.

    Oh how I would love to rise and shine, cannabis style as I always did pre-allergies.
    I need some more sleep, so Im not "up" yet (I'm very high), but I am comfortable enough in my breathing and mucus level to fully enjoy my Omnivap this am. This is due to great progress lowering infection recently.

    Anyway I did think of you as I enjoyed a wonderful morning high. A few hours sleep now then music to face but hopefully in high spirit.:)

    Received my order from PopularGlass! Packed impeccably, everything looks decent except for one piece that has a very small chip in the edge of the base, and most pieces have a bit of "scuff" marks on them. Some bases have a slight wobble, but overall for the money i'd order again! I might mention the chip and see what Steven does.

    GAS in full effect!! :rockon:

    (this might get as bad as my VAS :o)

    Thank you 4 the kine word's!

    CANNABIS make's LIFE DOABLE

    GLASS make's is SMOOTH (in my situation)

    Popularglass.com AKA stevenlmz79 on dhgate! Only china glass i've ever purchased (3 orders) have been from him.... but this last order was the worst quality (not that it was really bad or anything, just not flawless like my previous pieces from him).

    Got a Mobius from the seller Lovehookah.

    --> [link removed]

    Quality seems to be great, as packaging was, and the shipping time was outstanding. 9 days to Europe, never got anything from China as fast.

    Modnote: Link to labeled counterfeit glass removed

    maizhongglass (maizhonggood, rundow_glassbong - Same sellers)
    maizhonggood (rundow_glassbong, maizhongglass - Same sellers)


    Update for today... two sellers behaving badly, and one (kind of...) redeems himself.

    Seller "lcj88332" has shipped 2 pieces of glass that don't match the photos on their sales pages. Seller freely admits in conversations on DHgate message system that they are selling items that don't match the photos, claiming "fragile" color on one piece (forcing them to ship clear, obviously! :D). They are also claiming that the color they shipped is the only color ever used to make the other pipe. If that's the case, where did the sales listing page photograph come from? Anyway... stay away from these fraudulent scambags... they talk like it's just no big deal that their customers do not get shipped the same object that they paid for! :o

    Seller "glass1999"... what to say? Shipped my pipe to another state over 1,000 miles away, then claims the pipe was received broken by the recipient who called them on the phone (in China? Huh? My U.S. phone # with English speaking person was on the package too!) after opening a package that doesn't even belong to them (WTF?!!?!) to see what's inside! Yeah, that all sounds reasonable. NOT!!! :o
    As suspected, after being pressed for details, seller finally admitted that pipe will not be shipping, and grudgingly issued a refund. Thanks for the senseless time waste, you wierd and puzzling people! :(

    Seller "glassbongs_hookah", who was giving the "dead uncle" excuse for not re-shipping a customs return... 3 plus weeks worth... finally came through. Anyway, pipe finally shipped, arrived, and is awesome! I'm a bit annoyed, but happy with the outcome. At least he kept communicating, and didn't scam me. Hard to decide if he belongs in the good seller or problematic list... but overall I think he's a good guy and seems like a good seller in general, so we'll add him to that list and see if it's a good fit for the long term. ;)


    Let's keep adding to this list, and help it grow! Please post about your DhGate experience, or PM the details of your buying experience to me, and I'll keep this list updated! :)

    Unlikely,

    From what I understand, glass isn't on the list, and if it was, its the import of raw materials used for manufacturing of goods

    So, it would effect people importing a shit loads of steel for cars and whatnot, but not dude buying a glass bong from China (although, you maybe should be paying tax on it ;) )

    Update for today... only one seller to report, but they are amazing!

    Seller "plusplusglass" appeared on DhGate about a month ago, and they are simply superb. Very high quality thick glass recyclers, in a variety of beautiful styles and colors, at really good prices, even by DHGate standards. These people take customer service to a whole new level... they use brand new double-wall boxes and quality new bubble wrap and they quite literally photograph each stage of shipment packaging, showing you YOUR pipe being weighed, wrapped and going into the box! Oh yeah... they ship IMMEDIATELY FROM STOCK... a DHGate rarity. You will get your tracking number within hours, if the factory is open. I have received one BEAUTIFUL super thick incycler so far (with 4 more on the way...) and the thing STUNNED me with its quality and excellent packaging when it arrived! My current favorite daily driver, I love it and this company so much it is hard to adequately convey. I really wanted to put these guys right up there in the "Exceptional Sellers" list immediately, but they will end up there soon enough as further reports come in from other happy buyers. Give this seller a look... they are something special! :)

    Oh yeah... and seller "lcj88332" continues to delight and amaze me with his creative excuses as to why he can't seem to ship anything that matches a photo on his listings. Excuses are now turning to reasons he can't refund my money without me cancelling the DHGate transaction disputes first, so he can "refund you on Paypal". Never mind that this would remove my buyers recourse, and leave me open for a complete ripoff. Oh well... they can't all be winners! :(
