Things have been as busy as ever at Chinavasion.

We launched a brand new category in the blog Breaking News: Chinavasion Launches New LED Flashlights Category and discovered a new trend in the blog Security Plug & Play Security Cameras Kits Suddenly Become Affordable For Small Businesses.

So without further ado lets look at some of the more common questions we saw this week.

How can I find out about your special prices and how long do your specials last?

While Chinavasion prices are always the lowest out there we do occasionally put things on special to get you even more profits.

These can last for anything from several days to a month, depending on the promotion.

There are two main ways to keep up with the low, low prices at Chinavasion:

The first is to keep an eye on our Specials page.

But, if you want to get the details from the specials page, plus all the super secret price cuts, by subscribing to our Chinavasion Specials Twitter Feed.


I’ve had to pay import tax on a repaired/replaced item, how do I prevent that?

As we said in our blog Global ECommerce And Import Taxes, The Awful Truth import tax is just one thing as importers that we need to live with, like parking wardens or telemarketers.

However, there is one way to stop the taxman taking two bites of the cherry when getting an item sent back to you.

Just put the tax receipt in the package you send back to China, this is the receipt that has been provided by the courier when they delivered you. we will keep it and include it with the replacement/repaired item and it should stop you from having to pay twice. However it is still at your government’s discretion.


I forgot the password for my account, can you send me a new one?

Relax, renewing your password is a very easy process.

Just click on the I forgot my password link below the sign in link.

You will be taken to a page where you will be asked to enter the email address you made your Chinavasion account with. Once you’ve done that we will send you an email and you can enter your new password.

If you don’t see the email just check your spam folder to make sure it’s not there.

It is important though that you type your new password though, rather than copying and pasting it as this way it won’t contain any sneaky spaces or other characters that will trip you up next time you try to log in.


You’ve always got the latest gadgets. What products should I watch out for in the near future?

Do you remember those cool 3G wireless modems that we had at Chinavasion? Well, very soon we are getting a 3G modem and a 3.5G modem. Check out their pictures below:

Product Review




Fingerprint Door Lock – Right (Emperor Grade Edition) [CVPW-J27-Right]
The days of the boring old door lock is numbered. Not only is the
Fingerprint Door Lock
the most stylish and advanced door you’ll see for less than 110USD.

    • I saw the red light but I still forgot to change the battery and the key is at home, what do I do?!There is a 9V battery connector located below the door knob at the bottom frame of the unit; a simple connection using a 9V battery will bring it back to life.
    • I followed the instructions exactly but my fingerprints aren’t being read, what’s going on?This unit uses a swipe sensor, which is different from a press sensor. You need to slowly swipe your finger down the fingerprint reader.
    • Where is the key hole?On the door handle. You can easily remove the cover to reveal the lock’s key hole.

For a bigger list of questions visit the Chinavasion FAQ page or to ask your own question leave a comment to this blog (provided you don’t mind the whole world knowing about it).

We’ll answer them here and, if they’re good enough we may even re-publish them in a future Friday FAQ.
