Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Hi All,

I'm looking at buying some submersible pressure sensors for a small scale commercial product. Got a quote from a domestic supplier for a chinese product at $175ex. I was wondering if anyone on the forum has any experience sourcing bulk quantities on Alibaba and had some experience to share?

I've had an alibaba account now for a while, and quite frankly, I prefer it over ebay these days for most things

Alibaba or Aliexpress? I know they're the same company, but the ordering process is a little different. I get electronic stuff off Aliexpress all the time. Like you said eBay just can't compete.

Did you get what you wanted? I'm worried a company is going to send me some top notch samples and then forget QC when I place a large order.

Ive only had 5 big orders (100 plus type), but haven't had any issues to date- use gold suppliers as they tend to be the major ones, if its a personal one I'll experiment and shop around looking for samples
