Some reputable online Chinese marketplaces are Alibaba, TMall and Taobao. Alibaba is an online retailer and wholesaler whose stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange. TMall is a B2C shopping platform that claims to be Asia's biggest. Taobao owns it.
Taobao Focus connects ordinary consumers anywhere in the world to Chinese wholesalers by sourcing, buying and shipping items door-to-door from China at the best possible price. Though many Chinese online marketplaces offer North American shoppers irresistible bargains, shoppers must exercise caution to avoid fake items, fraudulent websites and poor-quality products. To avoid becoming victims of scams, shoppers must do their own research and use only reputable websites.
