Delivering quality products to consumers is your ultimate goal when running an import business. You need to cut expenses when importing from other countries, including China. However, without professional helps, you may end up spending more money than necessary.
China Assured allows you to avoid the headaches when navigating the complex landscape of China. They are experts in importing goods from China and they will oversee the overall production process. This will save you both money and time. You need to understand the basics of importing from China, which starts with working with a trusted intermediary.
Have something that will sell
You will save money if you have good products to sell. You may research the market by checking with online and offline retailers to see what’s popular in your local market. You also want to be sure that the products are affordable in terms of production and distribution costs. In order to reduce liability risks, all products must meet regulations and safety standards.
Communicate with the manufacturer
You need to go straight to Chinese manufacturers to keep costs at a minimum. One big problem is that, there’s no guarantee that you will find a reliable manufacturer among many thousands in China. Enlisting China Assured as your trusted intermediary helps you establish lasting relationships.
Place large orders
It’s advisable to ask for a few units as sample, but eventually you need to place large orders to reduce costs. The larger the order you place, the cheaper the cost per unit and shipping costs will be. If you order 10,000 units instead of 1,000 units, you may also ask for bulk discounts.
Order multiple colors
You need to realize that customers are diverse and you can’t predict their preferences. It’s very risky to pin all your hopes onto one single design. You will need to pay for final designs and manufacturing molds, before the production process begins. Selling multiple variants ensure faster sales. Communicate with Chinese manufacturers through China Assured to help you achieve this.
Track your imports
Make sure you know what is happening with your product every step of the way, from manufacturing to delivery. With reliable manufacturers in China, you can track your imports in real-time and you will know precisely where they are in the process. China Assured helps you to ensure that quality and speed are maintained in manufacturing and shipping.
Get creative with your payment terms
Some of our partner manufacturers in China will allow you to set up a payment plan for your shipment. Just work with the manufacturer to find a payment solution that works for both of you. If you can delay the payment, you may borrow less money from lenders, so you don’t need to deal with high interest rates and late fees.
It is clear that looking for reliable manufacturers in China and establishing long-term relationship are difficult to say the least, particularly if you are new to the importing business. You need to know how business dealings work in China, how to find reliable suppliers and how to negotiate terms. China Assured arrange everything to allow you inspect the facilities and to get your shipments on-time.
