I’d guess by not paying their workers a living wage ... or less.

Is it snow yet?

I tried to buy something that was a low price but found I had to buy 400 units to get that price. I then was bombarded with junk mail, and had to list them as spam to stop the junk mail. I don't know how he was able to buy anything individually from them. I have purchased from banggood.com, and have been pleased with my purchases.

Gary, I suggest that you were looking at Ali Baba which is the wholesale arm of the company. I've had many items from Ali Express without any problems, also from Bangood.from whom I get regular emails.

Very few workers would be involved, these days electronics are made by robots, faster than the eye can see!
