- CV. Safgo
CV. Safgo is located in Indonesia and produces baskets, reed diffusers and coffins from environmentally friendly materials. One of my friends recommended that I should join Alibaba.com. One of the features of the platform that interested me was the RFQ service that allowed buyers to actively seek you and request a quote. I was also interested by the professional services offered by the Alibaba.com team.
One of the obstacles to my success was a lack of exposure for my business. However, after consulting with Alibaba.com team, I was able to improve the keywords used for my products when searching on Alibaba.com. Now when buyers search for my products, my business is on the first page of results.
After becoming a Gold Supplier on Alibaba.com, I received a lot more inquiries from Australia, Europe and India. I am now contacted by more serious buyers than before gaining the Gold Supplier status. I have already made sales to buyers in both France and Spain with the help of Alibaba.com.

In 2013, we became an Alibaba Gold Supplier. We were soon getting about 10 serious inquiries per month and receiving one order per month. We sell our products mainly to Asia and Australia. This year, we have received an order worth US$150,000 from Jordan. By joining Alibaba.com, we no longer need to spend money on advertising and we can reach new customers on the global market.
- CV Dwira Jepara
I started my business in the furniture industry 14 years ago in Jepara, Indonesia. I began by selling to the domestic market only. In 2012, I heard about Alibaba.com through Google and was eager to learn more about it. I started to learn about e-commerce and how it could give me great opportunities on the global market. I decided to join Alibaba.com as a Gold Supplier and we were soon averaging 130 inquiries per month.
After joining Alibaba.com, my business grew by 70 percent. In the first year, I gained buyers in England and South Korea. Now, I get more than 100 inquiries each month and ship around 2-3 containers of my products. One buyer in South Korea has become a loyal customer and orders 2-3 containers of products each month. Through using the Alibaba.com platform, my annual income increased by up to 70 percent and this year I plan to open a new warehouse. Because of this expansion, my sister has also joined Alibaba.com as a Gold Supplier and my company is the first in Indonesia to have two Gold Supplier accounts on Alibaba.com.
