Has anyone purchased from this website? Looking at purchasing camo netting, elwire, etc. Just don't want to make a big mistake.
I also used them for my camo netting. Bulk rolls of fire retardant 255' for 599.99 with free shipping. Its high, but the cheapest I have found. The scary part about alibaba is that even though they may be "verified" as real companies, when you send your money to that foreign bank without really knowing there is no recourse if you do not get your product. Alibaba will not stand behind the companies and you are just out of your money. However, I have made a small purchase from a company in China off of this site and did get my shipment, but by the time I paid for shipping I could have just gotten it here.
There are a few risks you're taking when dealing with overseas suppliers:
say you're getting Camo netting, you have no way of guaranteeing that the material used is fire safe unless you actually buy some samples and test it out. don't always believe what they write on the website --- do your own testing. You're trading low-price for higher-risk, but that doesn't mean you can't get good quality products --- just watch out for yourself. Of course, if you're going through a US supplier, they probably already handled all the import, fire safety testing etc for you so you don't have to --- but that also makes it more expensive.
it's always a trade, do you have more money or do you have more time?
he had pics of the stuff he was using and I thought he was going to tell where he got it but ?
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think you can actually order anything from or through alibaba.
shawnc, you're right....they just hook you up with the supplier and you order through the supplier. You have to contact the supplier and a lot of times the item shown is not the exact item that they have, you have to be real careful.
I have bought from many companies on Alibaba and never had a problem. you can use Aliexpress and they do Escrow, you pay a mutual party, once you get your goods they release your money. you can also use Paypal or T/T payments. I alway make a small order first or get a sample to check out the quality. like Ebay there always is a risk of not getting your goods.
