Is it common for a factory to also sell retail on Aliexpress?
- In my experience yes.
- Also, is there is a checkmark you can select on Alibaba to only see Factories, and not Trading companies? thx
- That’s the problem I keep having in alibaba and apparel. Sooo many companies selling 10 piece at a time. Hard to differentiate the trading company from the factory when there are so many 10-at-a-time sellers there.
- So far I only able to see it when click on Company information — Amd see: Business Type: Trading Company
- Best odds of finding factories, you should look on 1688.com
- I would say it is more common for factories to sell retail on Aliexpress because trading companies are less likely to hold stock/inventory
