It is important that you know who you are dealing with when importing from China. eCommerce sites are risky; You don’t know if you’re communicating with a factory, a trading company…or a guy in an apartment with the wrong intentions.
GTS has three partner companies based in China that we have known for many years; They will reinforce their words and help take care of any issues that arise. In China, “who you know and how well you know them” matters.
Which Chinese Supplier Can I Trust?
Many years ago we drove to a Chinese company based in Shenzhen, the same city where one of our partner companies is based. We couldn’t believe what we saw. It was an apartment building. Our Chinese partner was concerned for our safety when he saw that it was a residential building. Was it a scam?
Trusted China Partners
If you don’t have anyone locally in China that you can trust, you have no idea whether you are dealing with a factory, a trading company…or a group of people in China trying to scam you.
We regularly receive calls from customers asking whether they should go directly to China instead of working with us.
Without experience in dealing with the culture and a native Chinese businessman at your side who has your interests in mind, the chances of being ripped off increase. We’ve had many customers call us and ask us to contact vendors they found on Alibaba or another eCommerce site. When our partner companies in China call the “factory” and find out the truth, it’s not always nice. One “factory” informed us that they didn’t even sell the product they had on their e-commerce site. Stories like this are not uncommon. Having local people in China is a MUST to do business there.
Trusted China Manufacturers & Suppliers?
Amazon alone has cracked down on over 50,000 Chinese retailers over the years who have been caught rigging the site with fake reviews. It is very important to know that you are dealing with a legitimate factory when importing.
eCommerce sites are risky; You don’t know if you’re communicating with a factory, a trading company…or a guy in an apartment behind a PC with the wrong intentions. In China, “who you know and how well you know them” matters.
