I want to order starfish necklaces from ebay. The vendor is in China somewhere, and the necklaces are only $5, with free shipping. This seems too cheap, especially the free shipping from China. Have any of you ordered jewelry from a vendor in China? Maybe I'm being paranoid, but you always hear about peoples Paypal accounts getting hacked or some awful thing happening through ebay. Any tips would be helpful.Thanks!

This is what I wanted to order...

I always look at the seller's feedback to determine if it's a risky purchase. In this case, the seller seems to have a lot of feedback and for the most part it is good. If you're still concerned, take some time to scan the feedback for negative comments, and see what those comments are about.

 

I think this seems like a good find! I may order a few necklaces myself :)

Thanks! I think I will order from the place you used. That way I know the product is good. How were you able to get multiple? I don't see a buy it now option.

I've purchased a few things from sellers in China, and *knock on wood* they've turned out OK thus far. I always check out the detailed feedback and read others' comments to see if the seller is a risk or not. If you do decide to purchase, post back with pics and your review.

Normally all you need to do is send them a message letting them know you need multiples. Since it's China, most of the good sellers still respond within 24 hrs...just expect a little bit of lag time. Most combine shipping or set up a an auction for you specifically with the amount of items you want to purchase.

I've been hunting like crazy for starfish necklaces too!! I came across those and considered ordering them too! They are really cute and a great price!! I didn't because I was worried that the wouldn't come in time before I leave (18 days), and I had read that a lot of ebay sellers from China sell silver plated jewelry as solid silver. I ended up just getting five of these:

And five of these:

 

Sterling Silver Star Fish Pendant Charm 5128 - eBay (item 200346980133 end time Jul-27-09 02:38:10 PDT)

 

They were more expensive, but at least I know I'll get them on time! Hopefully I can get the charms on the chains without having to get jeweler's pliers. gulp!
