  19. Hi Segun, you seem to have made importation easier than i thought. Just a few confirmations; if i copy you clearly, all i need to start a mini importation business is go on this site, search for my desired products, receive it via a credible courier and begin to market my goods here in Nigeria.

    Is it all that easy??
    Is this site credible?
    What are the risks involved especially when trying to get this items delivered to you at lowest cost?
    Are there no issues with customs and all such stuffs i hear??
    Are you in this business?
    If yes – is it really lucrative?
    If no – Do you know someone close to you who is and making some success out of it?

    A lot of questions on my mind but the internet this days must be carefully trusted- Nobody likes to loose money i guess.

    Please address this thoughts.

    I await your reply. Thank you

    You’re doing a great job here!

    • @Ladipupo, it’s easy. Majority of the suppliers on the site are genuine. You can fish crook suppliers through the reviews dropped on the product by people previous buyers. There are no issue with customs, the goods are sent as gift with a low price.

      I shop on the website often and the business is so lucrative.

      Before you purchase from any supplier, just make sure you check the price of the product with other suppliers.

  20. Sir,
    For a person who would want to start importation, let say 5-10 items. Will Aliexpress accept such order? Thanks. James.
