1688.com also called Alibaba.cn is the popular chinese version of Alibaba.com. It is a great site for wholesalers and small businesses to source their products due to cheap prices, even cheaper than Alibaba.com. Most sellers from popular sites like Taobao, AliExpress, and eBay buy from 1688. Indeed, for resellers, 1688 is the answer in earning wider profit margin!
You can basically purchase almost anything in this site as it offers very wide selections and categories of products. However, when you are buying from overseas, there may be certain shipping restrictions which cannot be shipped like liquid, cream, powder, chemicals, strong magnets, pure batteries, knives, weapons, etc.
Moreover, 1688.com is designed for Chinese buyers, thus the website is 100% Chinese. But you may use Google Chrome as your browser due to its built-in translation feature, which can translate the whole webpage to English or your preferred language. By doing that, you can search for products and read product details, specifications and reviews. Also, you may use chinese keywords for accurate results using google translate when searching for products, and avoid lengthy keywords as they may bring about irrelevant results.
