Has anyone ever used this website before?

A Russian friend of mine put me onto them, but I'm very skeptical when it comes to online stuff.

It's not a single company - it hosts lots of small businesses. And some are very really badly dodgy. But some may be right.

I wouldn't buy there anyway.

The Gold Suppliers are the sellers to go for. It should mean they are authenticated and checked by Alibaba.

As far as I am aware it is only really good for bulk stuff and reselling?

There are a few good suppliers there but also there are a number of dodgy once be careful and do your research before buying anything there.

I've bought something from these kind of sites before.. The package arrived with ants in the plastic surrounds of the packaging.

Never again.

Majority of suppliers on Alibaba are fake/scam. Don't fall for the gold supplier tag. They are all checked by scam 3rd party companies not Alibaba.

I would not deal on Alibaba If I were you.




Do whatever you want to do man.
