Profile Pages and Fake Profiles

An supplier’s Profile Page is like a mini-website that provides information about the supplier.

Some suppliers only provide basic information, such as contact information.  The most reputable suppliers, however, provide elaborate details about themselves, such as product photos, factory videos, manufacturing capacities, quality control certifications, inspection certificates, etc.

A supplier’s Profile Page also lists any complaints that have been lodged against the supplier.

An supplier who takes the time and effort to create a thorough Profile Page is probably more trustworthy than one who hasn’t.  But a motivated scammer can also easily create a thorough-looking Profile Page filled with fake pictures, fake videos, and fake information.

So, view Profile Pages with a skeptical eye.  After all, even legitimate suppliers use their Profile Pages as a marketing tool, presenting themselves in the best possible light.  Just know that pictures and words alone won’t guarantee – or even accurately reflect – a supplier’s quality level or real capabilities.
