Trading giant Alibaba has finally decided to join the second-generation of B2B e-commerce sites with the release of AliExpress.
AliExpress has been soft-launched on Beta status with basic functionality and a decent-sized catalogue of products and sellers (nothing yet compared to the massive pool of sellers registered in Alibaba.com).
Buyers on AliExpress can only use Credit Cards at the moment.
Alibaba’s own payment platform, AliPay, will be offered as an alternative payment method in the near future but what will be the response of international buyers to AliPay? Will AliExpress also accept PayPal?
We will update this space with the most recent news as they happen.
Only Alibaba China Gold Suppliers are allowed to sell on AliExpress. These sellers are subject to a strict verification process carried out by Alibaba in addition to a fee of around 20,000 RMB ().
Buyers should always avoid to execute transactions outside AliExpress platform. Since Credit Card is the only payment method available, if there are serious problems with one order buyers can push for a charge-back.
