Importing from China - Sourcing Products from Chinese Suppliers

5733 ratings | 183264 views
Importing from China is a fantastic way to source private label products. Chinese suppliers are high-profit, low-cost! Interested in making $10,000/Month? Download our free ebook here: http://wholesaleted.com/4-step Please note: this description contains affiliate links Importing from China is something that I strongly recommend. It is much cheaper to purchase product from Chinese suppliers compared to USA suppliers. Some people find this idea very daunting, especially the cultural barrier. To help you, we’ve created this video outlining some of our top tips when importing from China. Tip #1: Order the minimal order quantity to start with when importing from China To be on the safe side, you should always start with the minimal order quantity when dealing with a new supplier. I understand that a lot of sellers want to start out by ordering larger quantities. This makes sense, because the more you order the lower the cost is per-item, and the higher your profit margins. It also means that you will have a smaller chance of running out of stock. In Spite of this, when importing from China with a new Chinese supplier, I recommend starting with the minimal order quantity (EVEN if you know it’ll sell well) because you want to test the quality. It is much harder to go from producing 1 unit to producing 200… and even harder to go from producing 200 to 1000. On that note, you should ALWAYS be ordering a test product when dealing with a new Chinese supplier! You’ll have to pay for the shipping, but it is extremely important to do this to check the quality even if the supplier has a lot of reviews on Alibaba. Tip #2: Do due diligence on the supplier That said, reviews on Alibaba are very important. When using Alibaba to source Chinese suppliers, check the reviews. Only work with suppliers that have positive reviews. Be sure to check the address of the supplier on Google Maps. Ensure that there is a factory at the address noted. If there isn’t a factory, then it is likely a middle man… which means you’re paying inflated prices, and not the at-cost price. And pick up the phone and give them a call. Make sure someone picks up the phone and talks to you (yes - this may seem obvious, but a lot of people don’t do this simple thing). Even better is if you can find people who can personally recommend Chinese suppliers to you. This way, you can work with suppliers that you can trust from the get-go. Tip #3: Build a strong relationship with your supplier and representative This is an important lesson not just when importing from China but for business and life in general. Treat people with respect and they will treat you with respect as well. Think about it: If someone was disrespectful to you, would you want to help them? On the other hand, if someone is nice to you, don’t you want to help them? Be respectful, and friendly. In addition, Chinese suppliers like you to be formal in your communication style with them. They like to be told directly that you appreciate their business and are happy with the products being produced. They will be hoping to turn you into a long-term client, and want the positive feedback, so be sure to give it to them. Tip #4: Don’t feel you need to speak Mandarin When importing from China, some people get put off by the perceived language barrier. “But I only know English… can I still import from China?” Yes - you can! Chinese factories have English representatives specifically for people like you. Their English is good and you’ll have minimal language barriers. Don’t let this stop you from profiting from the very cheap products you can source from China. Now, when importing from China there are some things you can do to minimize the language barrier. One, use short sentences, and do not include extra fluff. Be straight to the point. Two, use professional language, do not use slang. Three, be aware that there are multiple types of “English.” Four, don’t assume that your representative knows YOUR particular flavour of English. Avoid country-specific words and isms. Tip #5: Remember that when importing from China “yes” doesn’t always mean YES. In China it is considered impolite for the suppliers to say no. So, even when they want to say no… they are unlikely to, and will often say yes instead. However, this doesn’t mean it is a yes. It is a no. But they will say “yes” anyway. It is one frustrating quirk. If you sense any hesitation in their “yes” ask them the same question, be reworded differently multiple times. If you ever get a “maybe” that is almost always a no!

mrgedk14 (10 months ago)
Hi, Sara, I'm just getting into this drop shipping but I'm a bit confused. In some videos, you talk about importing items from China as in this video, and in other videos, you talk about customers receiving items direct from suppliers in China and the drop-shippers (us) holding no stock and merely fulfilling the customers online order from our own website.
Ramon Sanchez (8 months ago)
What she is trying to said is if u going to use a supplier from China to do dropshipping its better first order to yourself to have a look of the item before u listing , after u checked and liked then u do dropshipping trough amazon ebay or your website thats why she always talking about order to yourself

i get that your trying to get people to be independent and start with minimal sourcing exp. but i also have to stand up for middlemen. i am an american living in Guangzhou. i know from experience that, sending a foreigner into a factory to negotiate, is never good. i have hired a crew of locals to do that for me and found that they walk out with the same product for about 2/3 cheaper that i ever could. even if i were to charge a finders fee of twice what i paid for it, my clients would still get it way cheaper than 99% of what a foreigner would. even better than Taobao or Alibaba . I am a middleman. and i love china!..its awesome. I love your videos !
Tim Swift (11 months ago)
i just bought a 60" TV for 145.00 usd...lol...i really love this place! that was me, talking to the manufacturer, so yes, its great to establish a good connection but if i sent on of the locals in, i could have got it even cheaper. my trick is, to make friends with just normal locals. they are not part of a firm or company that does this. its just ppl here in China. they love foreigners. but the relationship is a bit different than we would have in the UK,USA or AUS. they are about usefulness. you help them, they help you. the more that takes place, the better and longer the relationship will be. im not trying to sell my self here. but i do recommend networking . there are tons of ppl in china that speak English pretty well. generally most ppl under the age of 30. hope this helps . and happy hunting!

Do yourself a favor and check if the Chinese company is legit and don’t take anything at face value before you place an order. Always ask for a copy of the business license and check if the license is genuine and the company is legit. In China all companies are registered with a Chinese name. There is no English version of a business license, so non-Chinese readers have to partner up with somebody who can read Chinese characters. You can verify that the information on a Chinese business license is genuine in the National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System ( http://www.gsxt.gov.cn ) which is an online database where you can access information about all registered legal entities in China. The database is public and free to use . It is not hard to imagine how simple it is for fraudulent companies to produce a fake digital copy of a business license. The most common tricks are to change the company name, increase the amount of registered capital or change the year of establishment to hide a short history. The database will show if the information on the business license corresponds to information in the official company database. The database will show information such as registered capital that indicates company size. Companies with a low registered capital of CNY 500,000 (USD 80,000) or less are most likely to be wholesalers. Manufacturing companies would obviously need to show a much higher amount of registered capital to be approved. Other important information on the business license is year of establishment, address, name of legal representative, shareholders and business scope. The database will also show if the company has been subject to penalties or legal disputes. Please also check my WordPress page with more information on how to cross check Chinese companies http://companycrosscheck.wordpress.com

I really want to make my own product line and have contacted Alibaba suppliers for this purpose. There have been issues though as even though they state their MOQ is 1, the quickly turn back on this and say it's 10-50. The one supplier told me that I could purchase 10 items from them and they would keep it in storage for me and send when ordered. Is this an option I should consider? Or should I start on Aliexpress instead?

you can try the German sourcing company called matchory. you just have to tell them what you want and they will send you a list of the most qualified manufactures with contact info. they even show you the client names of those manufactures. i used them to find supplier for me yoga pants. you will have to pay 250 euro for the list if i remember right.

The first thing is not to buy many products because the exporter can deceive you. After a few times working then more products are already being ordered. The right thing to do is ask for between less than 500 to 2,000 dollars.

I am using Alibaba to source parts for a new product my company is making and I have found them to be very polite and VERY quick in responding.. Because of the time difference, I start emailing with them about 9 pm and go to 1 am... but they will email back usually within minutes.. They have even called my cell to confirm i received a shipment before I had even seen it...

This video is old advice. China sellers now sell on eBay the same price you have to buy at AliExpress so it's impossible to make a profit, middleman or not.

BigVnilla (1 year ago)
I have a supplier/trader we've been emailing. They will send us a couple of samples but want $75 plus shipping cost to send. This seems a bit high since the item bought in bulk ranges from .10-.40 piece (1000 ct. min). This could be a middleman but not sure... we were trying to get a manufacturers out of the Zhejiang Province since 14, 825 suppliers are there. What do you think?
Hi there, most probably they can be just a trader, you can hire local agents who deal with them, please check www.victuregroup.com
