Regard the Metal Detecting as a Hobby
« on: April 25, 2016, 16:51 »

Until today, I have worked one month and a half. My job is an editor so I have to find articles about metal detector or treasure hunting stories every day. Those articles are from Chinese website or English website and I found a difference between the two different cultures. Most  foreigners regard metal detecting as a hobby and they enjoy the process for detecting but many of Chinese choose the metal detecting as a way to become rich. Although I am a worker to promote our metal detector, I don't recommend this crazy idea. A few people using metal detector found treasures, then become rich, but the opportunity is very rare. You could take a metal detector out and enjoy the nature, maybe you will have a windfall at the same time. I appreciate the way to regard the metal detecting as a hobby.

Wondering about what sort of comments you get from your poor terminal customers.  Do you only sell to terminal people?

Adam, Goodbeard is referring to the wording on the advert.  Someone being terminal normally means they are dying of some disease.
"Kingdetector owns professional technical team, huge sales and after-sale service system, which gains high comments from terminal customers. Its staff team with practical, creative and progressive spirit........."

I 'm surprise that your countrymen find anything using the cheap 'knock-offs' that you were trying to promote on this forum.  Have a look at a professional VLF or PI metal detector and see how it compares to the cheap counterfeit knock offs...might pick up more with a stick and a wet piece of string.

...interesting Warranty cover.....from my interpretation, the warranty period is 5 days from receipt of goods  :o

"No agent, employee, or representative of Our Company has any authority to bind Our Company to any representation, affirmation, or warranty concerning the goods and any such representation, affirmation, or warranty shall not be deemed to have become a part of the basis of this agreement and shall be unenforceable. Any claimed defect in material or workmanship shall be deemed waived by Buyer unless submitted to Our Company in writing within five (5) days from the date the goods are received by Buyer."
