Did you just said "manufacturer from Pakistan" ? Well, you had a pretty smart & cheap deal, mate. The clothing here is pretty cheap for both import & export.

LOL guys really now?? nobody here noticed that the guy from Bloomberg told you COMPLETE bullshit numbers?! I mean 248B USD WHAT THE HELL????? They made 24B USD last year (2016) and they made way less than that in 2014 so divide by ten and you come closer to the real numbers. Alibaba is fine BUT IT'S NOWHERE NEAR THE REVENUE FROM AMAZON AND EBAY LOL. And here I thought Bloomberg was very correct on everything while these numbers and assumptions were just waaayyyyy off :p

Yes, anyone could just buy anything from Alibaba. Alibaba is just a portal that link you directly to the businesses/products. As the middleman/portal for the transactions, Alibaba earns less than 3% of the sales transacted (but since Alibaba's revenues is more than $500 billion, it is quite a substantial amount).

Wrong information - On Alibaba.com you cannot pay by AliPay. Only on their Chinese B2C site like Taobao and Tmall
Nick Sofialakis (1 год назад)
$7,500 for a full Ali-membership that can be acquired from other portals just as powerful for a much much lower price!!!

anybody knows how they can deliver their merchandise to their customers ?
Timeless D (1 год назад)
Alibaba ties up with at least 18 largest logistics/delivery companies in China and for overseas shipment, I believe that some of the largest logistics companies in the world are in partnership with Alibaba.

I see every one mentioning the Tmall and Tabao sites, however when I go to them they are not in English. So how do you use them?
Timeless D (1 год назад)
No, Taobao is available outside of China. I am from Singapore, and my son and daughter ordered merchandise from Taobao, too. Once I saw a very cute non-flat bottom glass (for drinks) in Bangkok. I wanted to buy it, but the restaurant said that it was not for sale. My daughter searched for it in Taobao and bought half a dozen at S$2.00 each. I was surprised when she showed me and I asked her how she got it and she said from Taobao. On another occasion while eating at a Japanese restaurant, there was a very cute wine goblet with a hole in the center for putting in ice so that the ice doesn't come in contact with the wine. I commented that the goblet is very cute and my son found it on Taobao and ordered them for me.

Remember that time when you wanted to order a calculator online and Alibaba shipped you 280 calculators that looked like they've been sitting in a Warehouse since the 1990s tarrif storm? Alibaba; where you can get 280 identical calculators from 280 different companies that change names more often than product listings and at wildly dynamic prices. Phishers all. If you can sift through the BS, you might find a gem but this market is as fake as those regurgitating "entrepreneurs" laughing their asses to the bank.

Communist totalitarian. Amazon copycats. Sweatshop labor. New World Slaves. China is happy place. Happy place... No slave labor here. No mass killing of communist enemies. No way no how. We are happy country of brainwashed, honorable online scam artists. You bought BABA stock? Sorry you must be stupid.

It helps the merchants and customers find each other and conduct the business in their unique ways. You can get everything you want on the taobao site. It really facilitate our life.

What if the pants (or whatever product) is actually amazing and those other manufacturers steal your idea? Or the actual manufacturer you ordered from steals your stuff and sells it?

And now.... You design has been on sold, and every second farmer in Pakistan is wearing your Bloomberg pants. When third world countries respect intellectual property, sites like Ali baba might stand a real chance

They should just quit wasting money on the propaganda. This dog will just not hunt. They need 20 billion to link you up with a "supplier" in Pakistan? Give yourselves a shake people...

Alibaba express is selling fake replica gold and silver coins as well. I wonder how many will be scammed on the retail market.

RNJvisionfx (1 год назад)
Please tell me your definition of fake, yeah items may not have a big name brand such as the sportwear store Nike, take shoes for example.. it may not be a big name brand and have some other name brand you never heard of... but how does it make the shoes fake??? All cause of a name brand you never heard of?? Let that sink in for a bit..
Timeless D (1 год назад)
Everybody knows that there are lots of fake products from ebay and Amazon, too. The "reliability" actually depends on the sellers, since everyone in the world could use any of these (Alibaba, ebay, Amazon) to sell their products. However, there's safety measure for buyers using Alibaba since IF buyers are not satisfied with the products they received, Alibaba will withhold payment to the sellers and the buyers get back the refunds.
Chen Yang (4 года назад)
And taobao and Tmall is much much much much much more interesting than alibaba for their very very plentful kinds of products you can find than Ebay or Amazon, especially for the individual customers.
Chen Yang (4 года назад)
+The frenchy because only the very cheap fake products are attractive to foreign customers, the real one what you what like nike, adiddas are even expensiver in China and the customers will not have the interest to buy them, most the foreigners can buy the real one with cheaper price in their  country, especially the americans. In addition, as far as I know, alibaba concentrates itself mostly to the business customers for wholesale, it's really not a good place for individuell customers and the biggest c2c company in China is taobao and Tmall, the daughter company of aligroup, there is a lot of viedo in Youtube about how to buy in taobao. There is also many fake products in Taobao(also in Ebay and the Amazon marketplace, all imported from China by the foreign customers...), but there are much more real ones in Taobao and you usually can distinguish from them easylly with some features for example much cheaper than the ovp or the average price in the market. Tmall is like taobao but 99% of the sellers selling only the real one.
