In Alibaba, we can see most of the companies are saying that they are the factory. We can understand that they say it because many customers cooperate with the real factories only, not interested in dealing with a trading company because of serious competition in price.

But we also believe that factories have the price advantage, but the trade companies also have many other advantages which are pretty valuable. Different customers need different company types. We really no need pretend to be a factory.

Method 1.Find the professional Alibaba videos. Two features for the official Alibaba video.
