    Hi!

    I am already a seller on ebay.in, and am selling well in my niche. Having said that, I wish to gather as much information on the following:

    I wish to find more information on how to import items from Alibaba and sell it on ebay.in.

    I am interested in buying on Alibaba.com, or any such good Chinese site, items like electronics and electrical items, and selling them on ebay.in (Ebay India). I need to know what are the things that I should have: for example, I think I must have IECode. What else is required (of course apart from the money to buy them:))? Do I also need to form a company to import those items, or can I easily import them as an individual? What are custom duties to be paid? Any more money needs to change hands in cust0ms?

    How to import from sellers on Alibaba? Does the Indian Customs cause a lot of trouble? How fast the items reach you in India? Do they (Alibaba sellers) drop-ship directly to customers and if they do, are they fast in delivering, and are their products reliable? Is that route (drop-shipping directly) safe, or should I buy a few items first, and then list them on ebay.in?

    Of course, I have no experience of this drop-shipping business, hence forgive me if I have not used the term correctly! :)

    Do the sellers on Alibaba have reliable distributors in India? I have found that at least one distributor is in India, but when I contacted him on phone, he didn't gave me the prices, or gave me a catalog. That got me disinterested in that product and that Indian distributor.

    So, if any Indian member on BHW is selling Alibaba products on ebay.in, then I request him/her to please PM me, or write here, some details of how he/she is importing or selling the products, and how is the experience of doing business on Alibaba...

    Many thanks for the help in advance! God bless!

    But no one is sharing anything. :(

    I haven't lost hope though. If I get the info from any source, I will share it with you all.
