AliExpress is actually meant for selling bulk products to companies. Bulk (products) are just large quantities of a particular product. So that companies can simply buy an x number of units of the product for a reduced price. The minimum lot size of a product was usually 20 to 50 pieces. Today many sellers offer their products also by one piece. Down below is an example of a seller that offers iPhone USB cables with a minimum lot size of 500 pieces.
