Garbage responses on Alibaba, what is right way?
I was just looking for unbranded clothing. I posted one buying lead on alibaba. It listed the products I was looking for. I asked to respond with FOB price and some information on their additional capability (e.g drop ship).
Within couple of days I got a dozen responses. However even a second grader can tell that the didn't bother reading the buying lead in the first place. Most of the responses have standard shabby sales text about the company and products. It was just frustrating to read through those emails to see if anybody is worth contacting. To add insult to injury, now I am getting some spam emails.
I read one another alibaba post here and did a quick google search on term alibaba fraud, I got 322K results.....that to in 100mSec ;)
What is the right way to get pricing for the products on alibaba.?
Proceed with caution.
Of course each vendor will respond to you differently... and levels of ability to communicate in your language will very. Keep your questions simple.
Since you have given us the "spam" heads-up, I'd suggest using a DISPOSABLE email address when communicating with unknown suppliers, then give them a better one if you end up actually doing business.
