Gearbest 2023 update
Please be aware that Gearbest is not the same store as it used to be!!
- Very negative recent feedback from Trustpilot (people lost money from the Gearbest wallets, lost order history and etc.)
- Not active in facebook.
- Website has no links to social profiles.
- Updated website – no link to all goods with EU warehouse option!
- Many goods are not available, and are just listed with “Notify me” option.
Overall it seems that Gearbest’s glorious days are already in the past, and the fate of the online store itself remains uncertain.
What has happened? The main reason for this was the bankruptcy of the parent company “Globalgrowe Ecommerce” group, which was founded in 2007. In 2018, Globalgrow Ecommerce limited its financial support to Gearbest, which had a huge influence on the price policy of this store. Gearbest was always known for the extremely low prices, which undoubtedly attracted new buyers, but the loss of funding from the home company made it almost impossible to offer the same.
Gearbest how to select EU warehouse
Gearbest was one of the most popular online stores in China. You can find all kinds of products there, from textiles to electronics, though most popular are electronic gadgets with famous Chinese brands, like Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo, Asus, OnePlus, DJI, Gocomma, Creality 3D, Siroflo, Zanflare, Alfawise and etc.
Though Gearbest main office is in China, but they had 46 warehouse worldwide. Gearbest Europe warehouses were located in Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy. This helped to shorten delivery time to only 1-5 days.
Unfortunately, in Gearbest website there is no clear EU warehouse filter for each category. There is just banner saying “Dispatch From Local Warehouse – Enjoy Rapid delivery“.
