Founded in 1999, Alibaba.com – the first business that Jack Ma started under Alibaba Group -- has always had a goal of supporting global small-and-medium-sized businesses.

Through Alibaba.com, American companies of all sizes can sell goods to wholesalers, retailers, manufacturers and service providers around the world, as well as source or create products that power the growth of their business.
