Default Advice with Aliexpress???

Anyone had any success using ali? I have heard some horror stories but it seems like the only real way to make a decent amount on ebay. Any items I should stay away from? Good items to sell? I have a few grand to throw down on an initial purchase but pretty much a noob at this point.

Your going to have to do your own research, no one call tell you what you should sell, look into items you have a good and deep knowledge of.

You are pretty safe on Aliexpress because they have their own escrow service, which I have found to be legit, and you will generally be paying with a chargebackable credit/debit card. The products though are hit or miss. Some good none-branded items but lots of ⊗⊗⊗⊗. The one thing to be weary of is alot these sellers will list items before they are ready to be shipped and take 30+ days to ship the item (still in production/testing is what they will tell you).

I have used aliexpress/alibaba for a lot of purchases. Always do the first one or two purchases using escrow and hen anything after that by bank transfer.

You will nearly always get a better price than advertised and if you see a product that has MOQ higher than you want just ask the seller anyway.

You can find a lot of ⊗⊗⊗⊗ items on aliexpress, but that doesn't mean that it's allowed here they are just no so sctrict as ebay.
So generally sell legal staff, deliver fast.

-aliexpress is much safer than alibaba in my opinion....alibaba is safe when paid via paypal or escrow tho, stick to those until you get to know a seller you can pay other ways and possibly drive the cost even lower
-alibaba almost always has lower price/item than aliexpress but you do have to order more product
-aliexpress usually doesnt charge for shipping where on alibaba they will tack it on (which also can be negotiated)
-standard shipping time seems to be dramatically faster via express than baba

what i do is always bargain with them to get their lowest price on a big order then hit them with lowering their MOQ if its higher than what you wanted....it make take a few go arounds but i almost always get what i want....i also send them quote from other manufactures and they almost always beat the other guy a few back and forths that way can get you a solid deal
cheers
