While most sellers are wary of doing business overseas, sourcing products abroad has become easier thanks to technology. It is well-known that buying from Alibaba is usually the best choice (it’s bigger than Amazon and eBay combined).

Browntape tells you how to source products from suppliers on Alibaba.com and the main points to remember are:
