Alibaba is a popular B2B platform that helps connect suppliers with buyers. Alibaba makes it easy enough to find a wholesale supplier in every field, and hair extensions are not exceptional. It offers an ever-expanding choice of suppliers and an excellent search engine. But having numerous suppliers offering countless products and services does not guarantee you find a trustworthy supplier. In fact, there are many reports of scams on Alibaba, as well as other issues such as customer service, packaging, shipping times, and more. So how to find reputable suppliers? In this post, we will show you the signs to recognize the reputable supplier?
I. What Factors Would Make The Reputable Suppliers on Alibaba?
1. Trade Assurance Suppliers
Trade Assurance is a free service offered by Alibaba that’s designed to help create trust between buyers and suppliers. Trade Assurance covers you if the products you ordered do not ship on time and if the product you receive does not meet the specifications or quality standards. If this happens, Alibaba will pay for the goods and you’ll get a full refund. So using “Trade Assurance” is a fantastic way to avoid scams!
So how do you use this feature?
When searching for products/companies through Alibaba, check off the button that says “Trade Assurance”. From there, you’ll be able to look at products and suppliers who have signed up with Alibaba’s trade assurance policy.
2. Gold Suppliers
“Gold” is a premium membership for suppliers on Alibaba. Suppliers who pay the fee ($10,000 USD) are provided with comprehensive ways to promote their products which, in turn, maximizes product exposure and increases their ROI. Go to the product page or supplier profile and look for the number, which tells you how many years the supplier has had the Gold status.
Because gold suppliers have to pay such a large amount each year, it basically weeds out scammers who are only after your money. What scammer would pay that much money? Scammers just usually go for free Alibaba accounts.
3. Verified Suppliers
Verified suppliers have arguably been your best choice. They are gold suppliers, who have been inspected by a third-party inspection company. If the supplier has been verified, you will see this on their Alibaba profile, as well as a list of what they have been verified for.
To screen for Trade Assurance, Gold Suppliers, and Assessed Suppliers when you look up suppliers on Alibaba, check the button that says each of the three so you see the relevant suppliers and products.
Alibaba also has ratings and reviews now, so you can see what other buyers think about the suppliers and their products.
II. How to Verified A Company Background?
To qualify as a Verified Supplier, a supplier’s company profile, production capabilities, products, and process controls have to be inspected, assessed, and verified by independent third-party institutions to assure reputable and consistent expertise on Alibaba.com.
1. World-class Inspectors
Verification by top global inspection companies such as Bureau Veritas, TüV SüD, SGS, and TüV Rheinland.
2. Verified Videos
The inspection companies will send the verification department to the supplier to assess the facilities and necessary information and make the verified videos with the aim of ensuring a supplier’s company profile, production capabilities, products, and process controls.
3. Detailed Information
This covers the company profile, management system, production capabilities, and process controls. Supplier’s production facilities & processes, employee numbers, management, main export markets, etc.
What Information Is Verified?
- Company Overview: Legal Status, Company Address, and Human Resource
- Production Capabilities: Production Processes Machinery
- Trade Capacity: Market distribution, Export revenue, Main clients
- R&D Capacity: R&D staff, Design processes, Design equipment
- Quality Assurance: Certifications, Supplier management, After-sales service
It can be said that the supplier company which has been verified on Alibaba, is a trustworthy supplier. Clients can completely buy the product without any doubt about the quality of products as well as worry about whether they are the scammer or not?
