eBay: For foreign trade people engaged in international retail, the potential of eBay is still huge, because eBay's core market in the United States and Europe, which is a more mature market.

Selling on Aliexpress VS Selling on Amazon

Why do we suggest you selling on Aliexpress rather than on Amazon? You might have looked at many comparisons between Aliexpress and Amazon. Rather than mention statistics like "Amazon is apparently better because regarding market cap, it has $427 billion, while Aliexpress' $265 billion.", we would like to view the difference between these two from the seller's perspective as entrepreneurship or SMEs.

AliExpress vs. Amazon - Whose procedure is easier?

Apart from the documents needed, the estimated process time for AliExpress is 2 days, and for Amazon, normally it's 1-2 weeks. Choosing the Amazon platform requires your suppliers to have stable and reliable product resources, a certain amount of financial strength, local U.S. connections, and have a long-term commitment to research mentality. Amazon's store is more complex and has a very strict audit system, if you violate or do not understand the rules, there might be even legal risks. Most importantly, AliExpress is quite new for the Western sellers, while Amazon quite mature, which leads to more competition, and less margin for you. Thus, for newcomers, we would suggest you choosing Aliexpress.
