Customer Service

GearBest customer service will run in a “limited mode” during the vacation period. Part of the staff will be available to process tickets respecting ticket priority. If your ticket requires a shipping action, you might receive a response from February 20th afterward.


So far, Customers in Australia can only buy from Chinese warehouse, HK warehouse and HK 2 warehouse. These three warehouses will be affected due to the Chinese New Year Vacation.
