Hi everybody!

I'm new here, and am on my way to becoming a proper fountain pen nerd. Although I do have a long way to go.

 

I'm looking to buy some Chinese pens, and need some help with how to choose sellers and which delivery options to choose.

I'd also like to know which e-commerce sites to go for. I only know of ebay and banggood.

 

Here's the pen that I'm smitten with right now:

https://www.ebay.com...xTBa7SO5_qmBFOg

 

The seller has close to 99% rating, and ships to India free through "economy international shipping". Should I go for it?

Would love to hear from experienced Indian members.

 

 

 

There's another listing: https://www.banggood...arch#customerQA

 

and another pen: https://www.banggood...B#jsReviewsWrap

 

Would love to have your ideas.

I'd recommend the seller jpzh11 on eBay. Bought a Moonman Wancai, arrived at my doorstep in 14 days.

PenBBS also has an ebay store if you are interested in those type of pens.

All recommended sellers above are your best bet, fast response and shipping.

The free shipping method. Btw, I didn't have to pay customs and it was through registered airmail. Tracking was provided.
