Shipping: Supplier Responsibilities

Your Alibaba.com supplier is usually responsible delivering your products to the shipper and providing the necessary paperwork to export the products out of his country.  He’ll probably work with a professional shipping agent to make sure this process runs smoothly.

The supplier usually covers the cost of getting your products to the shipper or to the nearest port.  You are then responsible for shipping and freight forwarding costs.  Once your shipment arrives in your country, you’re responsible for clearing your products through customs and having them delivered to you.

These terms are negotiable, however.  There are numerous ways you and your supplier can split up shipping responsibilities and costs.  But whatever arrangements you two decide on, it’s a good idea to set the terms in writing to avoid any misunderstandings or disputes later on.
