Beware the Genie in the Bottle – The Danger of Ordering Product from Alibaba or Aliexpress for your Hotel Client
It’s an “Add to cart” world out there…
These days, if you wanted to, you could buy a house online without ever setting foot inside. But would you, should you? Maybe not a house, but where does one draw the line? A bathroom? A sink? A vanity?
In the case of a house, you could look over the same cropped and cosmetically enhanced photos again and again to work up the nerve to pull the trigger and sign the note.

There are similar temptations at work in the construction business. The savings can quickly add up if you make that simple act of faith, and outsource your designs and project requirements to a manufacturer’s online middleman.
