too many bad sites so the competition is great. Our media links make this an even more effective marketing
source for our customers. It is important you convey to readers your URL or
product lines. We will publish listings of our advertisers in a whose who index

regarding paying for services that the other party may have access to their

the high service they expect from us in return for what they are paying
for. Details of our account will be sent to you. We refund all payments less

SHOULD ONE BUY OFF UNREGISTERED COMPANIES?
You have no comeback for return of monies & you purchase at your
own risk. Entirely up to you but many Internet Thai websites are not tax paying Thai Companies. Some internet websites in
Thailand are brokerage fronts who are not true manufacturers with
Thai Limited Companies. Please ask them for their status before
paying monies over. It is illegal for foreigners in Thailand to use
Internet websites as this is deemed work as well as income. If you pay and not receive your
goods you have no guarantee to receive a refund or goods so only use
licensed Companies for all purchases. If in doubt ask your nearest
Royal Thai Embassy-Trade Dept or Commerce dept & Chamber of
commerce in your country.

accept Western Union next day service and very good.
WHAT OTHER WAYS TO ENSURE SAFE PAYMENT?

remittance. When the goods are ready and shipping docs scanned and
sent to you and Bill of Lading complies then final monies are released to us.
