Could you please PM the vendor you use? I have looked at jacksun and rex and dont like the look of their hair/websites and payment methods etc. Thats why I ordered from an AV as Im confused about how the whole CV thing works. Id really appreciate any help/advice you could give me. So nervous to order from a CV without any proper websites and paypal etc. I like super thick european feel/looking hair in honey/dark blonde, straight and want it to last. I have been searching this website and all of the vendors for DAYS and keep going back to California lace wigs for some reason!
I think the AV just makes you feel comfortable but .. no reason to pay all that money to buy from the middle man when you buy from the CV directly.
The CVs all operate the same:
First - I never look at their websites because I like virgin hair (in terms of color) and I like kinky curly texture and I know the other things I like already. I have used Jacksun and a couple of others for years though - never been ripped off but I always order custom units.
1) I only use email to communicate so I send email to their email address and tell them what you want, On the website you can download the order form if you want a custom unit.
2) they will come back to you with a total price - and with a breakdown for the length, texture etc as well as the Western Union fee. They will include the name you must send the money to in China. (I think they take paypal ... but I always use Western union)
3) Then you send the money via western union and they give you a money transfer number
4) email the CV with money transfer number - he will confirm and will tell you when to expect the unit
That's it. Don't be afraid of the process.
Remember a CV is a wholesaler not a regular store so you cannot expect any super customer service or to ask a zillion itty bitty questions and go around and around on the price with them. Approach them as a knowledgeable buyer if you want their respect because they normally deal in BULK like 50 - 100 units a week from a lot of AVs that know what they are talking about. The AV (like California wigs) gets the unit and tweaks, like layers it etc and charges you a couple of hundred for their efforts. That's the business.
I think this is where a lot of people go wrong with CVs - they want the $280 unit from the wholesaler (the CV) but they still want the customer service you'd get from an AV where you pay $500. Can't have it both ways.
Yes, 'doctor' means working on the unit yourself - which you will have to do anyway whether you order from a CV or a AV if you want it to look believeable.
