    Hello everybody,

    We are currently at the development stage of an online platform for import and export, focusing on commodities and non-perishable products. The next step now is to fill the platform with products from various suppliers all around the world. As it is really hard to verify the reliability and trustworthiness on websites like Alibaba, and on Internet in general, I would like to know if there is any organization/company/website that has a directory of verified suppliers for different products.

    I am spending hours and days searching for this, and it would be even longer if we had to check individually every supplier that we list on the platform. Any advice would be of great help!

    Sorry to say you may be fighting a losing battle there.

    You don't think any directory of this kind exists?

    I dont get it. You are looking for a source of verified suppliers so you can list them without verifying them yourself?

    Of course every supplier would be individually verified, but if there is a list or directory of already verified supplier, it is a better starting base than sending thousands of cold emails for a potential low percentage of reliable suppliers.
