IndiaMART is fake and is full of scammers. I’ve had very bad experiences with them, not just one, most of them.. That platform is more like a middleman and you pay subscription fees monthly to be able to use it. Not fair practices and I wish there was another platform that regulates things like Alibaba does. Even the verified buyers on IndiaMart are scammers!

Hi Rocky, most suppliers on Indiamart are not export-focused, and therefore it is not advisable to source from there. There are a export-manufacturers on the website, but you need to do a lot of due diligence on them. Try using the more export-focused directories such as Alibaba and Global Sources using the supplier location filter. You could also Google “exhibitor list Delhi Fair” to find a list of suppliers exhibiting at the Delhi Fair, which is an export-focused fair. I wrote an article on how to find suppliers in India: https://www.indiasourcingtrip.com/how-to-find-india-suppliers-for-amazon-fba-private-label. Thanks – Meghla

Hi,
I am involved with a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Amta Block, West Bengal, India (near Kolkata, India). I live in Alpharetta, GA, USA and I am trying to urge my friends in Amta to ship products made of “Zari” (a product of jute) that are hand made by poor adolescent girls in the village. I am trying to find a shipper in the Kolkata area who can ship these products to buyers in the US. Can you provide any information?
Thanks
Sujan

Hi Sujan, if you would like to ship in bulk, you should use a freight forwarder. I can suggest one. You can reach out to me at [email protected]. If you’re looking to send individual pieces, you could use a courier service such as DHL or Fedex. There are also 3PL services / warehouses in the US that will receive products in bulk from India and ship them to your customers when they place orders. Hope this helps.
