Has anyone used alibaba.com to buy and sell items.

I would be really interested to hear what experiences people have had with them. (good or bad ) Boy wants to buy some stuff.

Many thanks

Never actually bought or sold anything on there, but i registered ages ago to see what its all about.

There are too many scammers on there so be very careful, choose secure payment methods. Make sure you DONT pay using Western Union. What kind of stuff you looking to buy?

I registered but never bought anything or sold anything. TBH i thought it was more of a wholesale website not really for buying things in quantities of 1 but in bulk. As said above be careful as most of the things i saw were from places i dont trust when buying online.

Better use eBay for buying/selling and Paypal for Payments. You have user's feedback which gives you a little idea who you are dealing with and you are covered by eBay in case something goes wrong.

Took a risk and bought 10 ipods for £350 Got them today, they are the real thing and working ok. I suppose i was lucky, don't think i'll do it again. Left boy to sell to his mates.
