Global Sources (GSOL) has expanded Global Sources Direct to provide two online sales channels. Global Sources Direct, announced in June, enables buyers to purchase small lots of consumer products online direct from China at wholesale prices.
The first channel is part of Global Sources' strategic alliance with eBay, which allows eBay PowerSellers around the world to buy direct from China suppliers through auctions listed under the eBay user ID GlobalSourcesDirect.
The second is through its online store, which offers fixed-price sales.
Global Sources Direct is one component of the company's sourcing and product information services, which include Asian Sources trade magazines, Global Sources Online and China Sourcing Fairs and exhibitions.
