HOW TO IMPORT FROM CHINA
Importing from China can be a daunting and expensive task, especially if you try to do it alone. Many in experienced importers use online directories, which comes with some difficulties and can often lead to all sorts of problems. For example, you don’t know for sure who you are buying from as they could be a trading company instead of a manufacturer, which are two very different things. If you aren’t dealing with a manufacturer then you also don’t know where your products are actually being made and therefore, you can’t guarantee that your product is being made by a reliable manufacturer. It is also very tempting to go for a what seems like a good online deal, however the price can have a big impact on the quality of product that you receive. Even if you receive a sample that is of good quality, that doesn’t guarantee that the bulk order of product will also match it, as trading companies may buy from another supplier to increase their own margin. It is therefore important to use a company with people on the ground in China, who can carry out quality control before, during and after production, before they are dispatched.
MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITIES
Every business has different budgets, price targets and expectations, however it is only cheaper to import from China if you order in bulk. This is because the price always depends on the number of units required and additional costs such as shipping are always cheaper as a cost per unit, with a larger number of units.

SELECTING THE RIGHT MANUFACTURER
If you are looking to import from China, it is important to know where your products are being made and the only way to know for sure, is to visit a manufacturer in person.
