Singapore is spot on, they pay extra for those ratings, not worth a zac when it comes to trust.

One thing about Alibaba is that it also has quite a good forum, and buyers do share a lot of info there so you might find a reliable supplier by asking in there.

Alibaba has a forum? I have never used it! What is it like? Unless its the community bit at the top then I have had a glimpse at that.

Gold supplier doesn't mean a lot but then I would personally not go anywhere near a supplier without the trust pass.

Issues you are going to face with bean bags is they need official approvals and tags and such if you are going to resell them...

Been quite a while since I was there myself, but I found it quite useful for finding out about watch suppliers on the site.

I was actually shocked by all the response I got, and it steered me to a supplier who I purchased a Bape watch 1-1 from.

That purchase was designed to test the quality as we were looking to have our own range produced for a company I was involved with at the time.

Still got the Bape, still hasn't missed a beat...and only a couple of people know that it's a fake to this day. I've even had offers to purchase it, and although tempted a couple of times, I politely declined, not because it was fake, but only because I still enjoy wearing it....lol

Even though we never completed a major transaction, the info I got out of that forum was a great help, and definitely recommend that anyone wanting to purchase through alibaba use it themselves. Having said that, it is a forum where you will probably have to ask a specific question, not so much browse for info because it used to have a lot of general rubbish in it.

And yes, it was the community tab from memory, but I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to find.

Thanks for the info guys.
Bevsey123, yes you are right. Bean bags, bean bag covers and the packaging of bean bag filling are subject to a consumer product safety standard. I have to find it out the procedure before I have a deal with a supplier.

Thanks.
