Have you received the cubes? If not, how long has it been since you ordered them?

Yes, I received the cubes today and think they feel authentic. just super suspicious as the same seller has been selling gan puzzles for almost half price

does location affect the prices of cubes? i realize that most cubers are located in north america or europe, possibly making cubes more expensive for you guys to access. I live in asia, super close to china, where cubes are mainly produced. is it possible that that may be the reason why prices are so low for me?

Yes, you can get cubes for really cheap near China, since that’s where the manufacturers are based.
There was a discussion about that, but it is legit, I think!
ZiiCube is perfectly trustworthy I think, along with CubeZZ, which are two good shops.

Could you post a picture of the mechanism? Like a corner and an edge then we can verify if its legit or not.

Yes, shipping to Asia is a lot cheaper than to Europe or America so that explains the low prices.
no, i bought it off a general online shopping website. this website has an unbelievable amount of sellers. and does ziicube sell fake stuff? website seems sketchy
If you buy stuff off of Wish then I would be concerned. HKnowstore is based in Hong Kong and has fantastic prices on puzzles, and Ziicube is also a good choice for wholesale stuff and low prices, ill link both and if you are going to order cubes again, I would pick one of these stores since they are very reliable and have a great reputation among the community. If you want to get premium products then Picubeshop is also a great choice, especially since they are the only store I know of that sells magnetic clocks (aside from TC's Angstrom clocks but they sold out in like 2 hours)
