Do you encounter
When you are sourcing products from China?
New to China Sourcing
Wondering how to find (best) suppliers in China? Fairs, Alibaba, Global Sources... what else and which one is the best? Sourcing from China seems to be very complicated. You don't even know how to go about it.
You are better at marketing. You don't have time to speak with 20+ Chinese suppliers per product. Esp. when time difference, language barrier, and unprofessional sales rep. all "attack" you. The communication cost is high but efficiency is low.
Pricing and Quality Dilemma
Many suppliers seem to be a middleman. High pricing from China supplier means a very low profit of your business, but if the pricing is low, you are not sure whether they'll provide quality products that are to your market standard.
You want to try a small quantity but many China suppliers are having very high MOQ. Some of them don't even reply. You may also have more than one product that you want to ship out together, but they can't do the consolidation for you.
Before Placing an Order
You send inquiries but they ask loads of questions. Most of China suppliers and sourcing companies only care about whether there's a real order and it's big or not. They don't know how to solve your "problem" at all.
After Placing the Order
They rarely keep you posted the order process. Before the order is placed, they promise OK for everything. When the lead time is due, they feedback they need more time. Or even worse, after the goods are received, defects are found...
