Does Alibaba take PayPal? The answer to this question is “Yes” but this is not an honest question. The real question is if you should be using PayPal to pay suppliers or when you should use PayPal on Alibaba.
In this article, I’ll walk you through the safest way to buy products on Alibaba using Alibaba trade assurance. Plus buying products from Alibaba using PayPal.
Does Alibaba take Paypal?
A lot of people are afraid to make purchases on Alibaba because they never met the supplier in person. Making business deals of hundreds and thousands of dollars with someone they never met makes people very confused. They have a hard time making the choice even with “Trade assurance.”
Trade assurance is a very good feature when it comes to knowing the supplier’s background but you can use Paypal too.
When you should use PayPal on Alibaba?
The best time to use PayPal on Alibaba is when you’re buying a sample product from the supplier. That’s one of the times you should use PayPal. Keep in mind suppliers tend to charge fees of 4 to 8 percent USD, 4% is mostly the fee. It is like PayPal tax.
Paying the 30% down deposit is also normal to using PayPal. So that’s the only situation you should use PayPal on Alibaba.
Alibaba Trade Assurance vs PayPal
So now I’m going to explore every detail about Alibaba Trade Assurance vs PayPal. After reading this artic, your doubts about Alibaba Trade Assurance vs PayPal will be crystal clear. My last article was a complete guide on making an effective profile on Alibaba “How to make an Alibaba account?” plus “Tips for buying from Alibaba.”
Alibaba Trade Assurance pro feature
Since Alibaba introduced trade assurance, you can get rid of all the risks of getting scammed. You can place the order to supplier vie “Trade Assurance.”
Do all suppliers from Alibaba accept trade assurance?
The answer is “No,” but I can tell you that all the suppliers from China will have “Trade Assurance.” The suppliers from other countries are unable to access this feature. Even though suppliers from China have “Trade Assurance,” still most of them are not comfortable using it.
Especially when the amount is large like 50 thousand USD or 100 thousand USD because the supplier doesn’t know the buyer’s real background and doesn’t know if he is trustworthy or not.
Because there are bad buyers out there, they take advantage of the fact that Alibaba is giving more advantages to buyers. When there is a dispute between buyer and seller in the refund process. <qoute>
Is it 100% that you will get your money back if you’re not satisfied with the product?
This is a bad thing when you receive a bad quality product and you have to apply for a refund. But if it happens to you, you need to fill out this refund form and provide as much evidence as you can as a detail.
Is it easy to get a refund on Alibaba just like online shopping?
It is not easy as you thought unless the product you receive has too many defects that you can’t use or resale, or the product is completely different from your requirement. Then you have a very high chance to get a full refund.
