If you are looking for online stores that sell cheap made-in-China electronic gadgets, DinoDirect.com is no doubt one of the top options. But it is definitely not the only choice.

Headquartered in Shenzhen, China, DinoDirect has 10 branch offices and a good number of warehouses around the world. In addition to offering low priced products, the online shop also honors worldwide free shipping. Another huge product line at DinoDirect is a wide range of apparel, including wedding dresses & accessories, special occasion dresses, men’s clothing and women’s clothing. A variety of payment methods are available there. To better protect your interest, you are encouraged to use PayPal when placing orders with DinoDirect or any other international online stores. For more details, read DinoDirect Review.

Based on my research, almost all famous Chinese electronic gadget online shopping sites source their products from Shenzhen, the manufacturing hub of consumer electronics, computer and communications products. In particular, Huaqiangbei, the shopping centre of such products, is the major place where these websites hunt for long-term cooperative partners to get the lowest priced gadgets for their inventories. Besides, most of them offer free shipping to any corner of the world. Here I would like to list some of the best alternatives to Dinodirect where you can shop for equally good gadgets at competitive prices.


When you find a cool gadget of desire at DinoDirect.com, I would highly recommend you to search for the same product at DealExtreme.com first and vice versa. Their prices are usually the lowest on the market. You can compare the price to make a better shopping decision. In my eyes, the two companies are same good in terms of product quality and credibility. DealExtreme provides free shipping and accepts PayPal too.


FocalPrice is another legend in the Chinese arena of electronic gadget foreign trade. Its founder is a talented young man who had made huge success at eBay before he led a team to create the FocalPrice.com. The site has been making huge revenues since it was launched – it never receives any investment from a third party and develops its business completely by the money it has earned. In terms of category completeness, FocalPrice is no second to DinoDirect or DealExtreme or any other China electronic gadget stores. The prices it offers are highly competitive too. Free shipping is honored. PayPal accepted.


To be frank, I have never seen any pricing advantage at ChinaVasion.com. The Shenzhen-based store seems to specialize in more high-end electronic gadgets. The best-selling products at the store include car DVD players with GPS, tablet PCs, smartphones, cameras, camcorders and more. Accepts PayPal. Free shipping is not available.

Lightinthebox.com & MiniInTheBox.com

Unlike wedding dresses and other special occasion dresses, electronic gadgets are not the major category at Lightinthebox.com. However, the site has really amazing cell phones and tablet PCs made by Chinese manufacturers. For instance, HiPhone became world renowned right from Lightinthebox.com.

As a sister site of Lightinthebox.com, MiniInTheBox.com carries a huge variety of “small gadgets”, such as cell phone accessories, video game accessories, watches and cool toys. Prices are good. Free shipping is available on select items and discounted shipping is frequently offered. Accepts PayPal.

Lightinthebox is the most reputable Chinese B2C and B2B website on the global market. Its company size, credibility and product lines are unbeatable. The best thing to shop with the store is: you may save more hassles.


As for wholesale deals on electronic gadgets, AliExpress.com is worth checking out. The site is a transaction platform rather than a store like the above mentioned names. Chances are you may find thousands of direct suppliers or manufacturers of gadgets and get best prices on what you want. In addition, the number of gadgets available at AliExpress.com is second to none. However, you may need more time and energy to find out more reliable sellers there. Buyer protection service is provided by AliExpress.com. The company does not charge buyers for any fees. Instead, it charges sellers for a certain amount of commissions on successful order. Again, I would suggest you use PayPal to ensure online shopping safety.
