Looking for a China supplier to help launch your new business? Then there are four things you should know about why you need about entering the search without expert help:
Fraud from China scam businesses is not an uncommon occurrence, unfortunately. When you source products from online channels like Alibaba.com, you may find yourself wondering what happened to your money. Perhaps your China supplier says that no money was received from you, yet you have just finalized a rather large payment. Look closely at the transaction, and you may find that the bank account beneficiary does not match the supplier name. Scammers, via online transactions, can siphon money you’ve sent to your supplier without either of you knowing until it’s too late. One of the best ways to avoid payment fraud is to employ the expert help of a reliable sourcing agency like Walker World Trade. Walker will check the credibility of a factory you may be working with for your peace of mind.
After investing money and time on product to arrive from China, the last thing you want is for that product to not meet specs. The missed specs may be nothing more than a mistake on the part of the manufacturer, but it doesn’t matter… It can set you back a few months as you wait for the product to be reshipped. And time is money.
To avoid this, it’s always a good idea to visit the factory and inspect your manufacturer and a prototype of your goods. If you are unable to make the journey yourself, a representative from your product sourcing agency can work to make sure the right orders are being sent to you.
There are a variety of reasons why your product never arrives, among them fraud, a factory logistics error, or a hold-up at customs. Avoid the nightmare by letting an international trade manager track each step of the China import and stay in constant communication with the suppliers from the placing of the order to its arrival.
B2B supplier listings like Alibaba.com have some good quality listings, but there are numerous low-quality listings as well. When looking for suppliers on your own, you have to be on your toes at all times. If the supplier tricks you, portal representatives will not go rushing to your rescue because the transaction is between you and the supplier. In most cases, you’ll be out of money without a legal leg to stand on.
With so many things that could go wrong when finding your own China supplier source, it is not a surprise that many importers prefer to use international trade management companies to handle the logistics. Contact Walker World Trade for expert international trade management experience.
