So you may get a good/fair price, then you start ordering again from a supplier, become reliant on them (doesn't seem realistic to have many suppliers when just starting out), and they then jack up their prices. How do you avoid this if you're private labeling? Is it common on Alibaba?
Also curious to know how common it is for suppliers to accept Trade Assurance on Alibaba? If a supplier doesn't accept it, how do you make payment? TIA!
