In JS, the top 5 sellers for a product I am interested in list several variations of the same product, and are listed by the same seller using the same product name as the company I plan to source from on Alibaba. ie. Jiange Trading Company, ie. Jiange Garlic Press, brand ie sold by: Jiange. Question: How can I tell if they are the same manufacturing company I am wanting to source from? or a private seller using this company name? They are selling very well and would be my competition. If I source from this company can I/should I also use their name in my listing title? They would be the manufacturer!
There are three types of sellers on alibaba: Manufacturers, Trading companies, and 2 in 1 (manufacturer + trader).
Jiange Trading Company is indeed a trading company. They buy stuff from the manufacturer in extremely big quantities, often even a whopping portion of their catalogue. Then they sell it to people that in turn will sell it to customers. They are a middle man.
