I have a question i was watching a video on youtube about buying products from alibaba doing an advance search by filtering supplier down to Gold Supplier, Onsite Check, Assessed Supplier

Does that usually mean I can still find genuine Apple products from a site like alibaba? or a good chance the items will still be fake?

100% FAKE!!!!!

If from a Chinese supplier and I mean mainland China, not Hong Kong. You still need to be careful, but genuine branded products can be found in Hong Kong.

Hi William,

Agree with Marc. Branded products are simply not feasible from China mainly because huge brands have a strict closed manufacturer and distributors channel, this way they have control over the sales of their products.

Hello William,

Samsung products are originally from Korea.

Naturally, all branded items that claim to be both genuine and manufactured in China is a big hoax.

Hope this clarifies.

I agree with Mark.

Those products in site like Alibaba are all imitations only. That is why they are selling those on a much cheaper prices. To be safe, I suggest you buy your products on those trusted website who are an active seller for several years already.
