is there anything like this website ? are there other global market "hub" sites ? anything comparable to alibaba (even if on a smaller scale)

In Spanish speaking markets the word associated to "Alibaba" is not "Open Sesame" but the phrase "and the forty thieves" (Alí Baba... y los cuarenta ladrones". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.4.23.10 (talk) 15:54, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Alibaba, Yahoo!, shark controversy[edit]

Alibaba Group, China's biggest e-commerce firm, is no longer engaged in the business of allowing sellers of shark fins to list their products on its platforms. Alibaba Group banned the sale of shark fin on its platforms as of January 1, 2009.

Environmentalists, ocean lovers and a growing world-wide scuba diving community who were aware of the decision applauded Alibaba for the ban.

Yahoo! has a US$1 billion stake in Alibaba representing a 40% shareholding.

Activist groups, thousands of petitioning individuals from all over the world and media organizations had approached both Alibaba and Yahoo! to induce them to drop the shark fin trade. The conclusion of internationally renowned marine experts is that the indiscriminate mass killing of well over one hundred million sharks per year, mostly for their fins, is driving many species into extinction with catastrophic consequences for the biodiversity of the world's oceans.

  • Alibaba have no involvement with what their members buy and sell, they just bring buyer and seller together. I think it's a bit of stretch to say that Yahoo is the world's largest online shark fin trader. --Spuzzdawg (talk) 10:05, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

The logo on this page is incorrect. Alibaba Group is the holding company that includes Alibaba.com. I would change it if I knew how, but if someone who knows how can do it, Alibaba Group logo can be found at http://img.alibaba.com/aboutalibaba/images/alibaba_group1.jpg —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jwspelich (talkcontribs) 23:29, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Alibaba Hires Ex-U.S. Official to Aid Washington Lobbying[edit]

See headers to last edits of "...Related Controversies" section...[edit]

by "LeProf", to see what was edited and why, in this section. One cannot use verbatim text from citations without constructing quotations, and cannot add material facts, like stock depreciations of 15% that do not appear in the cited source, etc. And one cannot have closing, opinion-laden laden text, without that also being sourced. This is not a platform for editor opinion, but for reporting published opinion on important matters from reliable business sources. (Economist-derived information was expanded, and Forbes-derived information was added to create a replacement summation.)

Reviewed foregoing edits, and cleaned up paragraph opening adding places where citations are needed to support earlier (other editor-written) text. LeProf

What are B2C and C2C?[edit]

Acronyms should be defined when first used, with exceptions of those that have become common English words such as laser, radar and led. David R. Ingham (talk) 19:11, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

I added definitions. Did I get everything?--Nowa (talk) 00:40, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Uranium[edit]

Yellowcake is not raw uranium ore; it is processed uranium ore. It is not illegal to possess raw uranium ore, which, according to Wikipedia, is "weakly radioactive" and emits only alpha particles (helium nuclei) rather than the more serious gamma rays. Patrick Campbell was not arrested for smuggling, nor for possession of uranium; he was charged with knowingly brokering goods (yellowcake, in this case) destined for Iran. Most of this is irrelevant to Alibaba: I removed the misleading reference to the concealment of uranium in Campbell's shoes. C. Cerf (talk) 22:54, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Affiliate links[edit]

Please remove the affiliate links, instead use direct links to Alibaba pages. Silly filters won't let me change it myself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.104.91.128 (talk) 08:50, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
