Make account

First it is better to make an account. If you already have one, you can easily log-in and see the status of your orders, items you have put in wishing list and many other that will show later. If you don’t, there are 3 options to make a new account: 1) Using your FB account, 2) Your Google+ account, 3) using email and password to create the account. My opinion is use the third option. It might be not the easiest, but you can access your account from anywhere, even your job where FB might be blocked.

After you fill all needed data, you are ready to enter the Gearbest eshop. When you sign-up for the first time, you get 10 FREE GB Reward Points. You also get 50 points for getting in your email their Cool Newsletter. When you enter you see this.

The points here can be used as real money. The more money you spend, the more points you get. 50 Points = $1.00. You can use points for discount if you have at least 50 points. The discount (from the Points) cannot exceed 30% of the item sub-total cost. Coupons cannot be used together with Points to reduce prices. Taking cash from “My GB Wallet” costs 5X Points value. For example: $5 will cost 25 Points.

Make my first order

Now that you have a Gearbest account, all you must have is and a PayPal account. This is better for you. PayPal gives you the means to get justified in the unique case something goes wrong and in 180 you want a partial or full refund for your order. Don’t get afraid. If you make the order through us, you can contact us to help you in case something happens. Now that we have both accounts, we search to see what we liked from Igeekphone, that we read in a article, want to buy it. So, we go to the article and click on the links. The link will redirect you directly to the page of the item you want. Don’t forget to write down the coupon included, to use it to get it at a reduced price.

For our example we are going to buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro, a VFM mobile. So we click on the link and we get transferred on the page of the mobile at Gearbest. There all we have to do is to check first if we are logged in. If not, better login. Then we click on the Add to cart


We will see that our order is transferred to our cart


Now we press View My Cart and we are transferred to our Cart page. There we see our order/s. As you can see the price of the mobile we choose to buy is 141.99$. If you have a coupon, you can added at the area mentioned in the picture as Promotion Code. By this way you will get an even lower price. For this mobile is no needed, as it is one of the lowest in the market.


Then the only thing you need to do is fill in the form below your personal information. Be careful to fill correct information: Your name, address, Zip code.


After all, click the button PLACE TO ORDER. Then, when it finishes, you will review all information that you have filled in the blank and make sure it is right.

How to choose shipping method?

We have 4 option for you, we recommend you to choose option 3 or 4. Sometime the cost so high, you have to choose 2.

Remember and caution: Never choose Unregistered Air Mail, If you choose this option and you lost your product, and you will never find it.


  • Unregistered Air Mail 15 – 35 business days $0.00 (No tracking number, very difficult to search it)
  • Registered Air Mail 15 – 32 business days $0.00 (Recommend for product what is lower $50)
  • Priority Line – USA Express 7 – 15 business days $0.00 (Recommend for US, UK,  location)
  • Expedited Shipping 3 – 7 business days $6.87 (Recommend for another location outside US, UK).There will have the tax cost when you choose this shipping method


More to the point, you have to check your shipping cost because most of the products are free ship but some of them may cost you a bit. So, be careful.
If you want your phone to be shipped faster, you should pay a small amount of money for that, because it just takes 7-14 days, faster than 1 month. Right? Furthermore, if you choose free shipping, maybe your local shipping company will take some shipping money from you, because Gearbest just applies free ship from the warehouse to your frontier. And when it comes to the customs, you will have to pay for the fee.
