I was looking for a few small, simple, ON-ON DPDT switches. As usual, I restricted the search to North American sellers. I didn't have problems finding more than enough sources, at decent prices, however if I didn't know exactly what I was looking for, I'd have no idea what they were selling. Why? Let me show you an example of an item description from a US source:
Can you see the problem? No? Ok. Let me show you an example of the Ebay page for a similar product from a Chinese seller:
Of course, you will start yelling at me that there are US sellers who put a lot of work into preparing the descriptions and there are Chinese sellers who don't give a fuck. Sure, you're correct. However out of over 10 US sources I checked (one with 28k+ feedbacks), just one page had approximate dimensions, and nobody bothered to post a screenshot from the PDF with documentation.
On the other hand, 3 out of 4 randomly chosen Chinese sellers offering such switches had detailed drawings with exact dimensions.
If you are a seller who runs business in America, and you stumbled upon my little rant, please stop whining that yellow competition is killing your business. Instead, stop treating your customers like idiots and put a little more effort into the preparation of the description. Good things tend to come back to those who do them. In this case they will came back in the form of green Presidents, left in your store by happy customers.
