Now all our buyers have these time-saving methods available. More importantly, they can choose to pay in whichever way suits them
Beijing, China (PRWEB) September 6, 2010
DHgate.com recently added the ability for buyers on their China wholesale trading platform to pay with an ACH-enabled checking account, removing the need for international buyers to mail a physical check and offering another convenient payment option.
Payment methods currently available for DHgate.com orders include:
- Credit card
- Western Union and wire transfer, which can be accessed either through normal channels or DHgate.com's new e-Wallet system
- Physically mailing a check
No matter what method is used, the payment is stored in DHgate.com's escrow facility until the buyer confirms delivery and their satisfaction with the items.
The US represents the region with the largest number of buyers on DHgate.com, so the China wholesale trading platform expects that the new payment method will benefit a significant number of purchasers.
"We understand that retail is an industry in which you need to see and respond to trends instantly in order to stay ahead," said James He of DHgate.com.
"We've already initiated several features that help buyers either identify trends or receive their orders more quickly, such as real-time chat with sellers and the icon for 1-day dispatch items. However, for those that need to use check payments, those benefits would have been used up in postage time," Mr. He continued.
"Now all our buyers have these time-saving methods available. More importantly, they can choose to pay in whichever way suits them," Mr. He finished.
