Replying to [CupOfTea]:
I am a exporter from Manchester, we have office in China, if i am in China and want a sample i have used pay pal to pay Chinese factories, and it saves me so much time, and with more peace of mind, to pay from a Chinese bank is a nightmare.
If you send T/T then you have a charge for that, and will wait about 5 days or more to clear, and you don't have the peace of mind.
The problem is not many use the pay pal service, some have but they need to take Foriegn money not RMB?
The other issue is it's ok for samples, but no factory will take pay pal for a large order like a container, the T/T or L/C is the ones to use.
But if you can use pay pal and get the sample, this will bridge some trust for you and the factory, as you have the sample and the deal went through ok, now you are ready for the big one
Maybe we can talk more soon, John
