How to import products from China?
There are massive business opportunities in China, but there is a strategy you need to follow for importing success.This is complete tutorial on how to import goods from China and how to find suppliers and howto check the authenticity of supplier and how to get your product imported easily without any hassle?
We Suggest :
1. Identify your import rights.
But before purchasing commercial goods into your country, as a business or an individual, you will need to identify if you have the import rights. And only the customs authority can make judgment calls about what qualifies as personal use.
2. Identify the goods you want to import.
Choosing the wrong products means you are losing time and money. the first thing you need to do is to choose the correct product for resell.
You’d better gather as much information as possible about the goods you intend to import. Obtain descriptive literature, product composition information and, whenever possible, product samples.
This information will be crucial when it comes time to determine the tariff classification. The tariff clarification number (HS Code) will be used to determine the rate of duty that will be applied to your goods.
3.Order Products and Get Them Listed
The next step is to order your product, and get started promoting it. Select your supplier, and get your products listed on as many sales channels as possible. You’ll want to have at least 5-10 items in stock, and then list your product at least
4.Order the minimal order quantity
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.
5.Do due diligence on the supplier
That said, Only work with suppliers that have positive reviews. 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. 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.
We Suggest NOT:
1. Always looking for the lowest price.
If you come across a quote that is significantly cheaper than the others, raise a red flag. Lowest price always accompanies with high risk, maybe quality, quantity or reputation.Just find a reliable supplier and grow with them in a healthy way.
2. Failure to clarify product details.
Not clear means the factory will make the decision for you based on cost saving.Ensure you double check the materials and the manufacturing process of each quote so you can feel confident in the products you are purchasing.
Make sure your supplier has totally confirmed every spec of your target product, including the packaging. Sometimes, it’s necessary to send the sample for recheck.
3. Showing distrust towards your supplier.
International trade is based on mutual trust. If you don’t trust your supplier, nobody will look after your production in the factory, and nobody will sincerely help you when trouble happens.
Patience is a virtue, anywhere, but especially in the Chinese market. Budget this extra time and costs as product development.
