And there’s no better time to order since Alibaba.com’s special month of sales, March Expo is almost over. You have until March 31 to talk advantage of all the deals and promotions the more than 58,000 participating suppliers are offering.
Most popular machinery
So let’s take a look at the machinery that’s currently selling well on Alibaba.com.
The Guangzhou Huafeng Mechanical & Electrical Co. manufactures sewing machines and has several models that are hot-selling products right now. For instance, the FHSM-702 24W heavy-duty electric multifunction sewing machine is made for home use. With the upsurge in sales of handmade goods, sewing machines have regained some of their popularity with designers. Guangzhou Huafeng makes many models of sewing machines so you can offer your customers a choice.
If you sell cooling units, you might want to take a look at Alto Refrigeration Manufacturing Co., which sells HVAC units, dehumidifiers, air compressors, wall-mounted cooling units and more.
The Oriemac Machinery & Equipment sells all sorts of construction equipment, including excavators, compactors and road rollers. One of their hottest-sellers right now is the XCMG 5Ton Hottest Wheel Loader ZL50GN, which is ideal for navigating through rocky conditions.
There are lots of other hot-sellers including packing machines from the Coretamp Packaging Machinery Co.. The Foshan Land Packaging Machinery Co. is another top seller of packing machines, such as this Automatic Chocolate Bar/ Candy/ Bread/ Biscuit Flow Packing Machine.
Great deals during March Expo
All the suppliers mentioned in this article are participating in Alibaba.com’s month-long sale featuring many deals, promotions and discounts. To take advantage of the deals, check out the action on Alibaba.com and the Alibaba.com mobile app (sign up here) today through March 31.
One of the special incentives being offered during March Expo is 15% off LCL shipping (less than container load) from China to the U.S. It’s all part of Alibaba.com’s new logistics service, which lets small businesses take advantage of Alibaba.com’s existing infrastructure to save time, save money and simplify shipping.
Look into Alibaba.com’s Secure Payment services. Alibaba.com is also introducing a new T/T transaction service during March Expo. This service allows buyers making Trade Assurance orders to make initial payments into a U.S.-based Citibank account. Previously Trade Assurance orders were processed through a Hong Kong-based Citibank account. This speeds up processing time to 2 to 3 days from 3 to 7 days. It also reduces fees, on average, by $15.
