E-commerce adviser tip

Alibaba.com has helped sellers reach buyers around the world for more than 20 years, and now offers an end-to-end suite of tools built for B2B. When a seller and buyer agree a sale, they also will agree on the currency and payment method used. The annual membership fee for Alibaba.com is available upon request, as it varies based on service package. UK merchants can enjoy 100% rebate for this membership fee if they work with WorldFirst on cross-border payments.
