Shopping with ali express
August 6, 2011 10:30pm CST
I would like to start a small online business. I am thinking of buying stuffs from aliexpress. I heard of many people being scammed when using this site. Not to mention the fuss when the merchandise arrives at the customs. When using courier must it pass the customs. Can anyone share their opinion on this.

I've never tried buying stuffs from these kind of sites before because I am not sure if they can be trusted. And I don't think using courier need to pass through customs. Maybe you can try looking for items from local suppliers first as I believe some will give you a great deal.

Hi sis! I am not into business but sometimes I do some survey on stuff like clothes and others in Alibaba site- the same like aliexpress. I am not sure about the deal because I never made any business with any of the suppliers there but if you want to deal with them it is better you deal with the supplier yourself and get into things as detail as possible-their history, reviews etc. If they supply along with their websites check whether you can trust the supplier or not. There are amny suppliers available but we can't say that we trust all the sites because it can be scam sites too..Anyway what kind of business you would like to start to? You can start finding the local supplier first before the international one.(^^)
