PORTLAND, Oregon (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
Alibaba is the world’s largest marketplace, bringing buyers and sellers together in a match-making fashion on their popular ecommerce platform. Their quickly approaching IPO has investors, small business owners, manufacturers and entrepreneurs researching and learning more about the opportunity to leverage the resources, innovation and technology promised from the China-based company.
What Alibaba offers for small business owners, startups and entrepreneurs is a platform to connect with sources for production supplies, materials and other necessary items to start or run a business. Because their sellers can leverage economies of scale, buyers at Alibaba have access to vendors, pricing and buying practices like samples, quality inspections and financing options that are typically accessible by only larger organizations buying in volume.
OpenSesame, the world’s largest elearning marketplace, has released a new, free elearning course: How to Get Started Buying on Alibaba to help people interested in learning how to get started leveraging those resources.
Alibaba represents a significant opportunity for small business owners and OpenSesame wants to help them navigate the marketplace to maximize time and savings potential. Any procurement agent will tell you that buying raw materials, promotional items or office supplies is very different from personal shopping online. In the OpenSesame online course, buyers will learn everything they need to know to get started on the Alibaba marketplace today, including setting up an account, finding the supplies they need, selecting the right supplier and financing their purchase.
