    They did tell me the shipping is Door to Door, no customs clearance, no tax because Im paying for Door to door shipping and everything is included in that. However ontop of that they charging me VAT, if customs is cleared how come there’s VAT? Am I missing something

  6. Haress on November 23, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Don’t buy overseas shipping cost is too expensive you should not be sourcing from Ali Baba

  7. Pyde Piper Productions, LLC Jonathan Bashir on November 23, 2021 at 11:04 am

    These videos if you know so much about making money from china why are you asking for money to teach people how? Why not take your own ideas and make the money you are claiming to teach me how to make? Makes no sense

  8. Hot bay on November 23, 2021 at 11:05 am

    I found alcohol markers on Alibaba but since i never bought from there i wasn’t sure if i should have gotten them and there was a huge pack of markers for 6$, is this legit?

  9. Nellie McConnell on November 23, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Looks like Chinese Federation Military is owns most of this company. Where are these located? Where does the material come from? Where are the sewing factory?

  10. Pyde Piper Productions, LLC Jonathan Bashir on November 23, 2021 at 11:09 am

    People can be so gullible.

  11. Salvage Monster on November 23, 2021 at 11:10 am

    I am very confused? What are you?

  12. EnchantedIDK on November 23, 2021 at 11:10 am

    I got an Alibaba ad when I first clicked on this video.
    Ironic

  13. Kelvin Britz on November 23, 2021 at 11:12 am

    Fuck dude, what are you on… Coke, you’re making me seasick just watching you move side-to-side!

  17. Jenifer Sabb on November 23, 2021 at 11:14 am

    John Santos, thank you so much. I can’t believe somebody actually took time out to explain/share this information in layman’s terms the way you have done it. I could just scream. Again, thank you.

  18. George Smiley on November 23, 2021 at 11:14 am

    The worst thing is, that Alibaba Trade Assurance was not what it should be. I thought Alibaba Trade Assurance would mean, that the buyer will always be sure to get something for his money. That is not the case, because Alibaba Trade Assurance is Fake. They help to the seller, and are doing very wrong.

  19. Mistress Sugarbritches on November 23, 2021 at 11:15 am

    Why would anyone buy anything from a person who’s associated with 40 thieves?

  20. Twist and Toil on November 23, 2021 at 11:18 am

    you the man brother from New Zealand

  21. J.R. In WV on November 23, 2021 at 11:18 am

    I just wish there was an online manufacturers database for companies in the US and Canada like there is for China, it’s crazy how much more advanced they are when it comes to bulk manufacturing and wholesale batch sales. In the USA most companies that could compete with Alibaba suppliers don’t advertise and have to be contacted individually by TELEPHONE CALL. We haven’t made it out of the 1980’s and it’s killing us.

  22. Jg Rsb on November 23, 2021 at 11:19 am

    I tried alibaba a few times and got scammed. Although amazon is not much better because the same alibaba scammers are on amazon!

  23. ah! on November 23, 2021 at 11:20 am

    I tried to watch, but seriously, the rocking back and forth, I just couldn’t take.

  24. JARA Unknown on November 23, 2021 at 11:20 am

    I believe I could learn from you. However,, may I request that you stand still. I’m an experienced blue water sailor – watching you makes me ill.

  25. Ivy Smith on November 23, 2021 at 11:20 am

    What’s alibaba email or phone contact plz?

  26. Kalvin Miller on November 23, 2021 at 11:21 am

    Buy American F@#% China

  27. sales allmybanners on November 23, 2021 at 11:28 am

    Never mentioned anything about payment methods, paypal, money gram etc, nothing really important about alibaba was said, is just general information about how to buy on internet in general nothing specific about alibaba, no good information

  28. Moses D Cedeno on November 23, 2021 at 11:28 am

    I would never buy for trust any seller in the Chinese market – also CCP has there hands in everything why would we want to given them our personal info. China is all about scamming everyone 🤮🤮🤮

  29. S Finau on November 23, 2021 at 11:30 am

    Others see him swaying annoyingly from side to side while I’m sitting here taking notes for my business. Thanks for the free content and thanks for taking the time out of you’re day 🙂

  30. Too Tough Chris on November 23, 2021 at 11:30 am

  31. Mark, Booth. on November 23, 2021 at 11:31 am

    WEEBLES WOBBLE BUT THEY DON’T FALL DOWN!!😁

  32. perceptions3182 on November 23, 2021 at 11:32 am

  33. Olider Shitawa on November 23, 2021 at 11:32 am

  34. Donna Navarro on November 23, 2021 at 11:34 am

  35. Biscayne Bool on November 23, 2021 at 11:35 am

    Are these $15 dollar e scooter deals for 1+ . are scams correct? Just asking. Anyway..

  36. Gosn Ralez on November 23, 2021 at 11:35 am

    I just got scammed for 320 usd. Didn’t know half of this things you guys are saying in the comments. In my case there was no trade insurance, I paid with bitcoin, etc. I have open dispute yesterday so now we will see. Alibaba said they’ll do everything they can for refund money.

  37. Janet Cazie on November 23, 2021 at 11:35 am

  41. Cody Lamb on November 23, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Companies have to pay to list on alibaba the odds of getting scammed when you have trade assurance are 0%

  42. Maverick 1957 on November 23, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Alibaba is a major SCAM! Outrageous shipping charges.

  43. Myra Shotton on November 23, 2021 at 11:47 am

    Everything we buy is from Ali/China isn’t it?

  44. Felicity Gee on November 23, 2021 at 11:47 am

    Your speech patterns are quite rhythmical, I think you use your body to keep up the good speed and rhythm of your talk. I didn’t mind it at all, thought it made you look energised and enthused about what you were saying.

  45. Maverick 1957 on November 23, 2021 at 11:49 am

    The one thing I DO know; There aren’t *any* reasons for me to buy from Alibaba. They scam you on shipping, & it’s often * low quality junk* they sell.

  46. Nirav sharma on November 23, 2021 at 11:49 am

    I got scammed too! I ordered earbuds for 5k and it never came it took my money and never sent me the earbuds.

  47. Myra Shotton on November 23, 2021 at 11:51 am

    "customers" in our area get the same things that we would be buying wouldn’t they? By us buying direct from Ali we cut out the middle man, which is what the "capitalist system" is designed around. When we buy from Ali we know exactly what we want, what you’re talking about is buy technical gear, is it?

  48. brandon woodford on November 23, 2021 at 11:52 am

    This dude bobs back and forth so much, I’m getting sick.
