* If you are not sure what the duty free shipping is, here is the info..
EDwaybuy.com is a China shop launched this year with a brand new concept: All products are shipped from the EU, there is no China shipping and no need to search for the right warehouse in order to save customs costs. All products have already been cleared and are being shipped from Germany, Spain, Italy or France.
Whether this concept works, what the service and the prices look like and whether the choice suffers from the concept, let's see together! Edwaybuy is a young and ambitious online shop.
EDwaybuy offers various warranties and services for buyers. The first thing to be mentioned here is an unrestricted right of return for 30 days from the time of purchase. The prerequisite is of course that the product is undamaged.
According to the online shop, it is not necessary to give reasons. However, possible shipping costs will not be refunded and the return shipping costs including mandatory insurance must be borne by the customer.
But if you want to keep your purchase, you are still covered by EDwaybuy: All products that are defective due to quality defects within 12 months of purchase will be replaced. The English formulation is 'quality-related issues' - what falls under this and what does not have to be clarified on a case-by-case basis.
EDwaybuy also offers free support, which is supposed to help with the operation of the purchased device. That actually sounds pretty interesting, some Chinese products can be more difficult to set up than usual, especially for newbies. Basic knowledge of the English language is required for this.
The processing time for orders where all products are available in stock is one to three working days. Orders are usually sent via DHL and should reach your home within one to three working days. Overall, this means: In the best case, it takes two working days from order to delivery, in the worst case six.
With EDwaybuy there are usually no shipping costs. There could be exceptions, but we couldn't find any. Both cheap gadgets like a Mi Band 3 and bulky vacuum cleaners like the Roborock S5 are delivered to your home free of charge.
EDwaybuy only offers PayPal for payment. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can pay with your Mastercard, VISA, AmEx or Diner's Club card without registering - the debit variants of VISA and Mastercard are also supported. Customers without a compatible credit or debit card have to create a PayPal account for themselves and pay by SEPA direct debit. In principle, however, we recommend paying with PayPal, as this also provides PayPal buyer protection.
The online shop EDwaybuy mainly focuses on products from Xiaomi or those from the Xiaomi ecosystem, for example Roborock, Amazfit or Yeelight. However, there are also a few other smartphones from the larger Chinese brands, such as RealMe, in the range. This of course means a much smaller selection than with Banggoo or even Gearbest. But there is almost no other way to solve this in a shop that exclusively serves European customers from European warehouses.
Still - the choice is noticeably limited. The Mi 9 and Mi 9T series are complete and available in almost all colors, as is the Mi A3. The Mi Mix series, for example, is completely missing. So it could be that your favorite mobile phone is not even available on Edwaybuy.
The prices are okay, but rarely the best prices. The Xiaomi Mi A3 with 64 gigabytes of storage costs 216.47 euros at EDwaybuy at the time of the article, and 195.89 euros from Amazon Germany (from Xiaomi directly). At Gearbest it costs only 161.17 euros. So comparing prices is worthwhile as with any other online shop, including edwaybuy.com.
However, comparing EU warehouses with prices directly from China is also quite unfair. Nevertheless, before you order from EDwaybuy, we recommend a price comparison on our website in the respective test report.
Like most other Chinese online shops, EDwaybuy offers a list of coupons for specific products. Again, you should make sure that you really get a bargain. The best deals we list daily on our offer page.
In article below you will find all Edwaybuy coupons, which will be updated accordingly if there are any changes.

Since EDwaybuy is brand new on the market, we have not had any direct experience with the shop. EDwaybuy is backed by the operators of the eBay store Xiaomi germany with over 20,000 reviews, 99.4 percent of which were positive. The reason for criticism in the reviews so far has been the poor communication with the retailer - but that is said to have changed under the EDwaybuy label.
As soon as we have had first-hand experience with EDwaybuy, this section will be added.
