Alibaba’s first Indian trade facility centre opens
Alibaba.com, the wholesale trading platform of China’s Alibaba Group, today unveiled its first physical trade facility centre in the country at Jaipur and a Hindi portal, aimed at connecting small and medium businesses with global buyers. By providing information and services in Hindi, the site will enable Indian traders, especially those from small cities and rural areas, to easily connect with merchants worldwide.
Alibaba.com will refund the Indian merchants for the supplier if the supplier does not meet the shipping time or the quality of products fails to meet contract requirements. Alibaba groups B2B arm has said it aims to more than double user base in India over the next few years through on-boarding of over five million businesses on its wholesale trading platform.
