Why is it so unfair that your country's local ATV manufacturer has to jump through hoops to get his properly built vehicle in the retail store, while somebody who's got no idea about basic technical and safety features can simply plonk his junk into a metal container and ship it over for half the price?

I stopped using Alibaba AND all other similar marketplaces 2 years ago when I discovered the good quality and stability of the Eastern European manufacturing sector. If you want to work with real people and real businesses you'll have to use official trade organizations and business chambers for leads and you'll have to spend money on international calls and faxes. All these problems occur because people want to cut corners. Either do it properly or don't do it at all.
