How to avoid fake items from eBay
By GREG BEER, Associated PressBEIJING (AP) The Chinese internet giant Alibaba has a new way of making sure it doesn’t make consumers nervous about buying fake goods.
For some customers, Alibaba’s new “skoot” option on its online shopping platform will let them choose the color of a garment that won’t be sold in stores.
But it won’t let them pay extra for it.
The platform is still only available in China, but Alibaba has already made a number of major changes to its site to make it more accessible and easier to use.
Alibaba says it’s not going to stop the sale of fake products, but that will depend on whether consumers are ready to embrace the changes.
Alibaba chief executive Officer Jack Ma said Alibaba has the potential to become a world leader in the use of technology to improve consumer safety.
He said Alibaba is looking to make the company a leader in consumer safety and said it will continue to invest heavily in safety and security.
Ma said the site would be updated to better identify fake products and improve its “sourcing and detection process.”
Alibaba’s first-year operating profit fell 6.3 percent to $4.5 billion in the fourth quarter of the year.
It had revenue of $3.95 billion.
Alibaba has struggled to attract buyers amid a slowing economy.
Alibaba said it plans to spend $200 billion in 2017 to build up its retail business and boost its online presence.
It said its first-quarter operating profit rose 8.9 percent to 7.2 billion yuan ($9.7 billion).
It had revenues of $5.1 billion.
Album Of Myself was released by the Chinese label BTS in December.
