How do I login?
Click on the Login link at the top right-hand corner of the page to go to the Login page. Enter your e-mail address and password and click on Login Now button.

If you check the Remember Me box when you log in, and if you do not log out, you won't have to log in each time you come back. Your browser will "remember" your e-mail address on your computer and your contact details will be pre-completed automatically when you send inquiries. However, for security reasons, you will always be asked to log in when you access secure parts of the site.

Why do I get an error message when I type in my password?
1.  Check how you are entering your password. Remember that passwords for Global Sources are case-sensitive. For example, if you entered "comPL3X" when you originally registered, the site will only accept "comPL3X", not "compl3x" or "COMPL3X".
2.  Check to see if your keyboard CAPS LOCK has been accidentally turned on. If so, it means your password will have been typed in the wrong case.
