Hello everyone, first time here. Tonight I stumbled upon an online store I’ve never heard of while browsing for an item I want through Google’s Shopping search engine (which usually sucks in my experience, but I always check just in case)
Anyway, so the site is Fokway.com. First thing you’ll notice is they clearly market themselves as a women’s yoga accessories online store. However, the item I want is an audio device (I don’t want to link it in case it gets sniped, as far as I know the thing is discontinued so I doubt the site has many in stock).
Also, at the bottom of the page, it looks like the site is run by some guy/gal out of Guangzhou City, China. Buying from China always has its quirks, I did like that it’s very up-front with who owns the site. But I’m assuming it could easily be an alias as well.
I did an [ICANN whois lookup](https://lookup.icann.org/lookup) of the website, but to be honest I don’t know what to make of it. Looks like it was created 2 months ago through GoDaddy. Again, I don’t know if that’s useful at all, but I did think only being around for 2 months was a little odd.
I couldn’t find any reviews of the site, I guess since it’s so new. I was considering ordering what I want through PayPal, with the payment method being my credit card so there’s (hopefully) two layers of buyer protection I could use.
Anyway, just looking for some education on how to determine if this site is legit or not. Thanks!
