    Hello guys,

    So i want to start selling a product in my local town, i have found the product and i have been googling for the last two days for more informations about suppliers. I have found a full hands of suppliers on alibaba and i registered and started emailing one by one asking for informations about the products.

    How would i verify if they are legit? Most of them require 50 to 100 minimum packages per order and require 50% of the payment upfront. I can understand that but i don't want to be scammed.


    Thanks in advance.

    Hey! I'm a supplier myself. As a supplier I understand when customers are cautious and worry, etc. I also only accept wire transfer, bank deposit, and western union. However, that is very risky. And I understand that. So I usually offer a safe transaction method for the first purchase. Like Skrill, or Escrow. I stopped using PP because it got limited :(. Anyways, to build trust and make a customer feel safe I do a sample, with a safe transaction method. And we move on from there :)
    So, sample it, make sure its a safe transaction method, and please feel free to pm me or skype me at baderahmed687

    On a side note, I dont recommend buying in bulk yet. See the potential at the price you get. Quality, etc. (sample it).

    Hello, what would the benefits of using skrill for example be in comparasion too paypal, on weach from my experience the buyer wins most of the cases if it comes to that?

    Using Skrill would protect me if i am scammed?

    Escrow and PP are the safest. I heard of people still getting scammed with Skrill. Its understandable when someone doesnt accept PP though.

    Using Escrow is a good way to keep yourself from being scammed.

    Have a Skype talk with them and see the products in cam if possible.
