Also here’s a testimonial by a user on nairaland –

Background:

I have been engaging in amateur orders from China since late 2014. Hitherto, I’ve been using freight forwarders/delivery agents operating here on Nairaland to facilitate the shipment of my consignments after payment for orders from alibaba. 

Typical iteration of my mini imports were as follows:

1. Source for and pay for orders.

2. Pay for courier delivery to my freight forwarders’ location within China.

3. Forwarder ships my orders to Nigeria (Usually takes 2-3 weeks). I normally use normal shipping which is cheaper/slower than express shipping.

4. Upon arrival of my package to Lagos, I also pay a logistics company between N700 – N1,500 to pick the parcel from freight forwarders’ Lagos office and deliver to transport company or Post Office – for onward delivery to Akwa Ibom State.

5. Transport company or Post Office then delivers to Akwa Ibom State.


This lethargic scenario persuaded me to subscribe to the idea of buying from Chinese online stores with inbuilt delivery to buyers address. My first such online store shopping experience was with www.gearbest.com


My gearbest.com Experience


1. Payment & Shipping:

*It is very easy to pay instantly with PayPal. 

*Processing takes between 1 day to 1 week in all my experience. I only once complained about processing delay via tweeter but the response was swift.

*Registered parcel takes about 18 days to arrive my destination in Akwa Ibom, Nigeria and about 3 days on the average for ordinary postage. All my orders always arrive 100% safe.

*The packaging is neat and conceals the content satisfactorily. Gearbest is security conscious. The package does not give clue that it is a merchandise. They resembles ordinary letter as much as possible. 

* At checkout, there are options for paying for tracking no ( which comes as Registered Parcel in Nigeria) and for shipping insurance. I am to suggest that if the amount of the order will be painful to loose, it makes a lot of sense to pay about $1.99 or thereabouts for each of the aforementioned options to guarantee replacement in event of loss/damage of items in transit, or any thing that may motivate claim for restitution from the supplier. It must be acknowledged that international trade has it peculiar risks! 


List of my orders from gearbest:

Of all my orders, I observed that my colleagues at work tends to like the LED bulbs, especially ladies. I have accordingly been requested to make repeat orders both single and bulk for their personal use and resell.



2.Customer Relationship:

* I opened a ticked about delayed delivery and gearbest’s customer care responded professionally. 

* My other communication means has been through their tweeter account. I have always been attended to promptly and positively. I was once assured that my goods will be replaced if it delayed beyond a certain timeframe in postage. 

* I really regard their Customer Care system as top notch.


3. General Remark:

* Gearbest now is my major online shop in China. Most of my orders in 2016 has been from geatbest because it simplifies international trade to a simple art of just clicking buttons online and waiting for my orders to be delivered. Hitherto, I have been using freight forwarders and go through the complex process of customs clearing and multiple courier agents in order to get my Chinese imports to my doorstep. With gearbest, no more stress. 

* So far I have placed 8 orders on a wide range of items, such as: power banks, car accessory, Led bulbs.

* All my orders came as original goods. I have not received any fake product. 

* User reviews are genuine in my impression and reliable enough to guide an aspiring buyer. Most of my orders are for resell, I have repeated orders for satisfied power banks and cheap but original Led electric bulb customers.

* I earned points on buying and writing user reviews and converts the points to discount when shopping. 

* I have no hesitation in recommending gearbest.com to any buyer. They have lived up to expectation and I am looking forward to a sustained long term business relationship with gearbest.com

The desired arrival of Red Dead Redemption 2 on the PC came last month and was made available through the Rockstar and Epic Games store. However, the problems were many and the players were extremely frustrated.

Now the game is also available on Steam, giving the millions of players a glimmer of hope. However, Rockstar has clearly not learned from their mistakes and the players are furious.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Steam

Steam release brought even more trouble for Red Dead Redemption 2

Everyone expected the arrival of RDR 2 on Steam to happen smoothly and with the vast majority of previous problems resolved. However, besides that it did not happen, this release has caused even more problems.

As with so many other games, despite being available on Steam, Red Dead Redemption 2 remains released by launcher Rockstar. Many users have seen their Steam account associated with a Rockstar Social Club account to which they no longer have access.

Once this connection is made, you will only be able to play RDR 2 if you can win. access to your old account. Even worse, you’ll have even more problems if you eventually block access to your account by trying to find your old password.

Unlike in the Epic Games and Rockstar store, the Steam platform offers the ability to comment on any available game. So, with this big “wave” of trouble, a flood of negative comments has also come.

RDR 2 PC

Many users are complaining about various issues with launcher of the game, which for one reason or another, simply is not able to start Red Dead Redemption 2. Apparently, a possible solution to this problem is to turn off the computer command by turning it on just after the game is released.

Rockstar is trying to solve all problems

Since the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC that Rockstar has been working hard to try to solve every problem. In fact, the latest update has addressed many of the reported issues as well as the desired performance improvements.

Still, this second release made it very clear that RDR 2 for PC is far from promised. If you are looking forward to trying this game on your PC, I advise you to wait a little longer unless you want to spend this extremely frustrated Christmas with Rockstar.
