    Alibaba. How do I sign up?

    So, just say hypothetically I wanted to sign up for Alibaba to investigate purchasing a number of items..... just out of interest.

    What details would I complete in the fields below?



    Am I a Supplier, Buyer, or Both? And what would my Company name be?

    I put my real name, address and details like that, but a dodgy ABN and business name as I don't actually have either of them I have twice been asked to send web address of my business and I told them I just run a small market stall and they are generally happy to let me do smaller orders

    From my experience, it's best to fill in the info properly, you can make up whatever business name, but your name and contact details should be accurate. The reason for this is Alibaba offer buyer protection and will chase stuff up for you that doesn't show up. I'm not sure they'll chase up a missing package for I.C. Weiner.

    Thats very true.. After adding a company called greefly, I now get 1001 companies adding me on skype wanting me to buy.
    It's a bit annoying.

    What he said.
    I made an enquiry about lathes and milling machines recently, didn't get an answer so Johnson, my personal resourcing agent has made it life's work to send me eager emails from every factory in China that makes anything with an 'e' innit. One very very serious and ernest email offered my a discount on $55k CNC lathes with an MOQ of 10, just for me and my sample needs.
    I hope Johnson has a hobby.
