Aliexpress, Alibaba’s sister site, that came to light, little under a year ago has amassed global appeal by showcasing a variety of products targeted to small importers and individual buyers.It offers an excellent escrow service for payment, and its probably the fastest growing commercial portal of the past year.Here’s some of the best buys at aliexpress of the last 6 months,some of which you would want to get your hands on right away.For all the people living in india,ive selcted these fantastic products that you should get your hands on right away.
For folks staying in India,importing electronics is not difficult,but will take few months to learn the tricks of the trade.Just make sure you have a good clearing agent and a good manufacturer in China,everythign else will move smoothly.Also,the government has made duty charges on most electronics 0% or non dutyable.
THINGS TO REMEMBER WHILE BUYING:
1.Aliexpress is a fish market,and you are the king.You have the power to bargain,as there will be many sofuppliers selling the same product.Dont feel awkward to ask for a better deal,the chinese are really accomodating people.
2.Be weary of dubious sellers.If there are 5 sellers for a particular product all quoting 5$ and the sixth offers it to you for $4,take a hint and stay away,its almost certainly a scammer.Other scamming tricks are free product offers,like if you buy 100 pieces you get a25% off,or if you buy 200 pieces you get a netbook free etc.
3.Always inquire about the shipping cost as this can increase your cost greatly,some suppliers offer free shipping,so check for that,or if you are a hard bargainer,you can get the shipping charges reduced.
