    Hi everyone,

    I am looking to start on my online business with handmade gifts and have been searching on Alibaba for samples. I have been getting quotes on samples as well as product order but have been getting frightened by the delivery costs of both the samples and the order. It is super expensive!! Can anyone please help provide some guidance on this process?

    Samples and small orders off Alibaba will always be very expensive, better deals come with bigger orders. You may have to just pay the extra to get samples, it is a part of doing business.
    Since I doubt that there are many items on Alibaba that are truely handmade can you source from elsewhere?

    I would look at organising your own freight through Freight Fowarder Quote Online.


    You can get quotes online and I found they were less expensive overall. Another company I also use is Worldwide Customs & Forwarding. You can get an online quote with them also.
