Simply because there is no quality control. So, anyone can register without even having a real business and similarly “Gold Supplier” doesn’t mean anything either.

Simply because there is practically no quality control.

Basically anyone can register there without even having a real business and “Gold Supplier” doesn’t mean anything either.

I would look for the following things when buying on Alibaba:

  • Trade Assurance (and make sure you use it when buying!)
  • Assessed Supplier (Third-Party check)
  • High Sales volume in the past

In general you should look for as many certifications and badges as possible. Also make sure that you either order through Trade Assurance or PayPal in the beginning.
