Alibaba For The Brits

Alibaba.com is a huge marketplace with extremely low prices – so low that it could seem not legit (But it most certainly is!).

So, what is Alibaba actually? Alibaba is first and foremost a marketplace. A marketplace that’s hosting thousands of different sellers and factories, each with different standards of products and quality. That means that we as costumers have to be more cautious with the checks before we make a purchase. Most of the scams are absolutely avoidable with the tools that Alibaba themselves provide.

  1. On-site verification – to ensure that you are dealing with a real factory, Alibaba has an on-site verification process – They will send agents to the factory address that is listed by the seller to confirm that the factory is actually there and the business is legit.
  2.  Supplier assessment – a third party company will inspect the business and factory, and will provide more detailed report regarding the seller’s business (even photos and videos of the factory)
  3. Trade assurance – an essential tool for any cautious buyer. Deal with suppliers that offers Trade Assurance, this might be the most important tip we can give you, because with that Trade Assurance your money won’t go through to the seller unless you mark the products as ‘Arrived’.
  4. Transactions History – although it is not an indication of quality, you can go with the ‘masses wisdom’ and be a bit more assured when you see that the seller have sold this product for thousands of costumers and it is ranks high enough.
  5. Goods Certifications – when importing certain products, you will need a certification to get them in to the UK. Before you place your order, make sure (Ask for proof) that the seller have the right certifications or else your products will stop at Customs.
