Title: (ask)cheap overseas electronic components online store
Post by: e0ne199 on July 01, 2019, 10:57:12 pm
hello everyone, i want to ask a question..does anybody here know about an online store that sells electronic components with, if possible, free shipping delivery?
it is okay if it is on ebay or something like that, but for that one i really need a very trusted seller because the first time i bought something at ebay i actually bought a scam which would never arrive to my place  |O...it is really dangerous to buy anything at ebay anyway...
any answer is appreciated, thx before  :D

Aliexpress is my primary go-to for cheap parts and modules. Dx.com and banggood are also in the mix. I’ve looked at Taobao several times, but it’s always seemed like too much of a hassle to figure out.

For free shipping, you are not going to do better than eBay/AliExpress, but you will encounter the occasional scam.

Otherwise, http://www.taydaelectronics.com (http://www.taydaelectronics.com) and http://lcsc.com (http://lcsc.com) are reliable sellers with cheap shipping.

thx for the reply, it is okay if it is not a free shipping delivery as long as the shipping is cheap enough to pay because i just want to buy some electronic components and i don't want to pay for 50 dollars just to get it delivered, and i hope the seller can be trusted as well...
if there is anyone else who wants to give some recommendations, you are welcome to post it here, hope this post can help someone who has the same needs as me  ;D

Here, DigiKey or Mouser ship free if you order $100 or more.

I read here in the forum some recommendations about www.utsource.net (http://www.utsource.net) I've never used their services but I am considering to order some stuff from them to try.

eBay goods usually arrive just fine.  But the problem is quality.  Some has been totally junk.  Some look fine but junk. 

I bought whole bunch of SMA connectors.  It works but if I tried to torque it down or use it repeatedly, (few dozen times), it breaks. 

Anything moderately critical, I buy from Digi-key.  (a local supplier in US).  Things that doesn't really matter comes from eBay.  If it's from eBay, I test the component myself before using.

You are from Poland?
Look here for someone who is from Germany and will re ship stuff from Conrad.de .
