It is important to understand that Alibaba does not supply exclusively for the purpose of dropshipping. Instead, they connect wholesale buyers to suppliers and ensure all customer orders are shipped accordingly. And, unlike AliExpress where you can purchase as little as one item, you are buying everything in bulk.
