    Hi guys,
    Do you know any good alternative for aliexpress? Well, maybe not alternatives, but simply a different (cheaper) source of chinese electronics.

    I'm selling some electronic stuff on ebay (memory cards, usb sticsk, dvd players etc.) and i'm doing quite ok.

    However, the competition is becoming more and more fierce with every month so i was thinking about finding a cheaper supplier.

    Aliexpress is kind of a mall where different manufacturers offer their products and the final price (ie. my cost) includes: aliexpress commission, paypal commission and god's only knows who's elses).

    Any ideas?

    You can PM me if you don't want to post your suggestions to google

    the key to making Great and Not good profits online and on ebay if finding a good niche product which low to medium competition..... electronics always have the highest since they are plentiful to buy and resell. Years ago before asian dealers starting selling online on ebay and amazon you could buy super cheap and dropship using ebay and online stores and make a killing, well alot of the mauf. started to see a good opportunity and they jumped on the bandwagon and started selling on ebay and other online sites and phased out a lot of little guys...so they way to still do well is find a handful of really good niche products that not every one is selling that you can make a good profit on and has a good markup... aliexpress and dhgate and the hundreds of other trading china sites offer all of the same low priced cheap stuff and you can still do well on buying and reselling you just have to be really good at marketing your products and know how to play the numbers game right.... do some more research and find some good niche products....
