Default Online Trade Companies

Hello, I'm thinking about ordering products in bulk from a trade company online (EC21) however i have no information on what a trade company exactly is. How is it that a trade company can sell products for much less than retail price? Any info on trade companies would be great, are they safe to deal with? does anyone here have any experience dealing with trade companies. thanks

Default ec21 or alibaba.com

Dealing with EC21 or Alibaba.com is difficult.

It is a great place to get ideas or figure out pricing, but probably not a viable option to actually safely purchase goods.

There is no substitute to actually visiting china. The Canton Fair in guangzhou is a great place to start.

It is like a brick/mortar ec21 or alibaba.
