    Do you guys think its a good idea to start by purchasing products from alibaba and selling them on amazon. I tried ebay but there are just too many hidden fees and all that junk.

    Should I start with alibaba or worldwide brands? I already have a wwb account but its difficult to find anything that i can flip for a profit on amazon.

    You know there is also the best route for that type of product. A e-commerce store and some ppc ads. I have helped a few build this type of business from Alibaba. Not easy but very profitable. One of them was for construction materials, good bucks.

    alibaba is a great place to start however the shipping costs is high unless you buy using china post which then the shipping costs is lowered or free. But if you scout around you will find some great suppliers if you need help message me.

    Aalibaba is a good site but not all vendors are honest. I would always start out with ordering samples to make sure the products are quality.

    Alibaba and wholesale sites in general can be good, you just need to find a genuine seller on there that actually sells what they are advertising, then building a relationship with the vendor, then here is where you can cut out the middle man and possibly get a cheaper price, but I agree with the other guy, get samples first though!
