While they used to be considered important, they have now become more of a formality. Spending time and money on lawyers to draft detailed contracts, manufacturers can still refuse to fulfill the agreement, citing unforeseen circumstances.

International contract law is inadequate, and legal costs can exceed the value of the goods. In such cases, services like Alibaba Protection can be more effective.

This is my opinion based on 15 years of experience in international trade, where the company I worked for never sued foreign suppliers.
