3. Qualified and experienced – Before you chose a supplier, always do extra research and find out the best and qualified people to service you.

The problems that you are going to face when dealing with intermediaries in China, including wholesalers, traders and sales agents are significant. You may face the following issues,

  • Hard to negotiate the changes – if you want to negotiate changes to the product while it is processing, it will be a challenging task because you will not be in touch with the person who does the production process.

  • Cost does not always equal the quality of the product – If you think the price you pay translates to quality, that is not always right. The untold truth is usually the wholesaler takes an undisclosed margin of profit.

  • Impossible to maintain a direct relationship with the factory- That is a big disadvantage because the closer your relationship with the factory the lower your risk is going to be.

You must compare the both sides; Risks and advantages before you jump right in to importing your products from China. Do not rush to commit unless you are completely convinced by the benefits.
