Just be aware that alibaba has a lot of scammers where they will say that they have this type of gpu's but then after you paid for it they will vanish. and also some of the products there according to my friend has over runs where there are some defects on the unit but they still sell it.

I am interested to order some mining rigs for eth from Alibaba. Does anyone have ordered from alibaba this kind of products?

Yeah, I've had a couple of replies from the sellers, sound sketchy and can't answer the basic questions I need such as shipping times, ETA etc.

Spoke on Skype with a few and found them really unhelpful. I've only known bad things about the site tbh, from my point of view, I'd skip it.

There are five main suppliers listed on Alibaba selling crypto mining hardware. Has anyone dealt with any of these companies before? So far, none of them have been willing to agree to use trade assurance (escrow) which is a red flag to me. I have not had such problems buying other stuff off Alibaba. Can anyone vouch for any of these companies? Or, even better has anyone visited one of them in person?

Here are some links.
https://heaventech.en.alibaba.com/?spm=a2700.8443308.0.0.NLotvw

https://toplinesz.en.alibaba.com/?spm=a2700.8304367.0.0.HAOjNZ

https://winkor88.en.alibaba.com/?spm=a2700.8304367.0.0.zVRqLL

https://szdihao.en.alibaba.com/?spm=a2700.8443308.0.0.NLotvw

https://bitcoin.en.alibaba.com/?spm=a2700.8443308.0.0.NLotvw






I'd honestly stay away from any chinese product that you are going to heavily invest in / rely on. Especially bitcoin miners, as they are placed under a huge load, a good quality product is needed for a long range endurance into the future. Aliexpress (Alibaba) has a huge reputation for selling dodgy/ bad quality products for cheap prices. While the pictures look legitimate and the price is attractive, the quality of the product you are going to get is very much questionable.

Now before anyone starts saying how good Alibaba is, I'd like to point out that I bought my phone from them. At first I got sent a fake replica (even a replica of a cheap 100 USD phone) that was so bad it broke within a few days. I complained and in 3 days they sent me a real/legitimate version for free (and with express shipping! Smiley Wink )

Overall I cant complain, but if you get stuck with a dodgy seller who wont respond to you, you have basically lost your money as the only payment method is via Debit/Credit Card. No paypal whatsoever. I'd say be careful, and if your budget allows, buy a trusted miner. Always buy grey imports with caution - there is no guarantee that every seller will do as they promise.

I am about to order an APW3+ PSU through a supplier on Alibaba called Apluspower, will update the status of my order to let you guys know if its legit.

As mentioned in the previous posts it seems like they don't offer any form of trade assurance... but then again none of these suppliers listing these mining products on Alibaba seem to offer any form of trade assurance, so does that mean that they are all not legit?  Huh

So based on this I decided to give it a shot with the PSU, if it works out great because some of these suppliers have awesome prices, would be nice to have someone from China to confirm this type of info though.

As I've said previously and others. I'd stay clear.

If they're sold out on Bitmains site, then why would a chinese reseller have full stock of them? Same goes with Pandaminers and Baikals etc...

Especially if there are no trade assurances. If you're in the bitcoin world and sending money to people without  some kind of assurance, then you're in for a bad time. Believe me, I've been there.

You're brave for putting your love for Paypal out there on a crypto forum Smiley

In all seriousness though, just because they have a storefront and say they will ship your item in 2-3 days, doesn't mean they should be trusted.

Just a quick google search of Alibaba and scam will bring up thousands of genuine issues.

I guess that's the difference between decentralized and centralized money, bitcoin is a scammers playground. Look at all the cryptolocker stuff that's going on, theres no way they'd be asking for paypal would they. So guess Paypal and bitcoin have their differences and places in the world.

For what it's worth, and if it wasnt clear, I agree with what you're saying.

With that said, some suppliers on Alibaba accept paypal it seems.

I've used aliexpress quite a bit and never had problems, even Gearbest.com for some gadgets and home automation stuff I get. Generally quite reliable.

I've always been taught, if it's too good to be true, it generally is....

Taobao English is where the resellers are.
Taobao China is where the real sellers are.

Also, the sellers on Taobao china are mostly out of stocks these days, just checked lately.

Be the person you want to coin.

I just use a Bitcoin VCC on Alibaba and it works just fine due to them not using the fancy security features that exist on sites like eBay. Even Taobao CN works too, just got to use a translator or read Chinese like me Smiley

can you use credit cards on alibaba? if so can't you just do a dispute if you get a broken miner or scammed? Pretty sure ali express lets you use credit cards but their selection and prices not as good as alibaba.

It is important to realize that every five companies have a "golden supplier".
In order to get this done, there are strict criteria.
They can not afford to cheat!
They would lose status as "golden supplier"
And it's after the shop.
And shame in all of China.
These info are directly from them.
