Sites like Alibaba – Global Sources

Manuel Becvar

You are probably asking yourself if there are sites like Alibaba. Yes – there are! And one of them is Globalsources. The oldest (and most professional) supplier directory in China.

There are several sites that are 100% legitimate and similar to Alibaba. Such as:

  1. DHgate
  2. Made-in-China
  3. HKTDC
  4. 1688 (only available in Chinese and catered to the domestic Chinese market)

And of course Globalsources. Personally I prefer Globalsources because I’ve also exhibited there myself as a supplier before (review here).

The other sites are absolutely legitimate as well but I have not used them much myself. Partly also because the supplier and product selection on Alibaba and Globalsources is just 10 if not 100 times as big and they’ve been on the market the longest.

I’ve made a review of Alibaba here, you can check it out

Hence I’ve also made a review of Globalsources in a video-screencast which you can find below. I hope it helps you navigate the site better. 

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me. 

Happy sourcing.
