Friday FAQ image
It has certainly been an interesting week at Chinavasion.

We put together a blog on how to complete your first order in Portuguese (Chinavasion em Português, Processo de Verificação da Chinavasion Junto ao PayPal) and had Jing Zhang took a look at five very solid performers in the blog May’s Hottest Gadgets For Resellers.

Ken, from Hardware Sphere also let us know that in a week he will be giving away our WiFi projector to subscribers of his blog. Watch this blog (or ) for more details.

But then we also got a lot of questions. Lets take a look at the more frequently asked questions this week:

How do i set up MMS/GPRS/WAP on my cell phone?

MMS might sound simple but sometimes it can be a little tricky to set up.

Thankfully, Michael Wong has already fought the battle and is more than willing to give you the intelligence you need.

Check out his blog China Cell Phone Mysteries Solved, What Is MMS And How Do I Set It Up for more hints.


A partner/colleague/ friend of mine has an account with you… can I buy things from you through their account?

The simple answer to this question is it would be better to give them the money they need and ask them to buy it for you.

At Chinavasion we are very careful about our customers accounts and are very aware of PayPal fraud and so if we see a different name being used on a previously held account we often get the feeling we ‘smell a rat’ and disallow the purchase.

This is to keep our customers and ourselves safe.

The good news though is that, even though you can’t buy it yourself you can get it shipped to your address. Just ask your friend/colleague/loved one to put your shipping address section and we will send it there.


Is there still time to buy gadgets to watch the world cup on?

Not long ago we talked about the potential Digital TV and HDD Media Players had for keeping your life in order in the blog Digital TV And HDD Media Players: Watch The 2010 World Cup Without Ruining Your Life

The good news is the world cup is just around the corner.

The even better news is that if you make your order in the next 2-3 days and select the ‘ship by courier’ option we will most likely have the item shipped to your home before can have the media device before South Africa kicks off against Mexico in Johannesburg.


You’ve often got the latest cool gadgets, what should I look out for in the near future?

We don’t often ‘tease’ the same week in a row but we were so excited about a coming item that we just had to give you a second peek.

Remembered the Let Cool game player we showed you last week?

Well it’s here, it’s ‘badasss’ black and our catalog writers are fighting desperately for the right to write it up.

Check out the pictures below:

Spy IP Camera (PTZ + Motion Detect + Audio) [CVOI-I52]
When it comes to IP security cameras there aren’t many dropship sources in China that come much more trusted than Chinavasion. Check out why with a look at one of our IP cameras

  • Is this camera PAL or NTSC?
    The concepts of PAL and NTSC are irrelevant when it comes to web surveillance cameras. It will work with any display.
  • How does motion detection work?
    After you install the software, run it to get the IP address of your camera. Fire up your browser and enter the IP address. You’ll see what the camera sees as well as settings to enable motion detection and email alerts. You’ll need the email address you want the alerts sent to as well as the smtp information. For example, if you’re configuring gmail it would, you’re done. When there is motion detected you’ll receive an email alert with a snapshot of the camera saw.
  • Is this the IP Security Camera (Angle Control + Motion Detection + Audio) that I’ve seen on your site before?
    This is the improved Spy IP Camera version!
  • What will happen if each IP camera uses of the same given or default IP

    Using the same IP on each camera will cause an IP conflict. Make sure you read the user manual carefully and thoroughly before
    installing the IP camera. If you are not an IT “savvy” individual then you should consult a IT technician to help you install this unit.

  • Do I need a user name and password to access the admin controls once I visit the IP address of the security camera

    Yes, located in the user manual are the default user name and password, once you have logged in to the admin controls, make sure you change the default user name and password to something that you can remember but difficult for someone else to guess.

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.
