Check panjiva.com if you can locate the factory that makes it or take a look on alibaba

Does anyone here have experience ordering items in large quantities on Alibaba, to sell on Amazon? It seems like you can get very nice profit margins.

Anyone have experience with buying from Ali express? How does it compare to Aibaba? Is there a risk of item being a knockoff and would there be a way to tell?

CMIIW, Ali express and ali baba, are the same company, just with ali express you get your items faster, and you can buy smaller quantities.
As items on ali express are usually ready to be shipped

Assume anything you buy from there is a knockoff

Why? I would think that since legit factories are making there products there, these sellers get it from them for a good price and resell it. If it says its authentic, the feedback looks good, and there is buyer protection, should I still be hesitant?

Rookie mistake.  Just assume it's a knockoff and you won't be disappointed.  BTDT. Proceed at your own risk. If ordering in bulk then hire someone to check it out before shipping.
