Why do we need a purchasing agent?

Dealing with Chinese suppliers is very time-consuming. Working with a qualified Buying Office or Purchasing Agent can save you much time, cost and energy etc. in China. For example, 90% of the suppliers you met online or at local trade fairs might be a typical trade company while the local sourcing specialists can go to the real manufacturing bases to find out some qualified factories for you in person. Apparently the factory price is much more competitive than that of the trader’s anywhere on the globe, by this way you can save more cost in the business. Also, they will do Warehousing, Shipping Support, Business Risk Control, Legal Contract Support and After-sale service etc. on behalf of you while you are not in China.

Comparing 3 types of sourcing company in China, Choosing the most appropriate one.

Wholesale sectional sofas from China.

Comparing 3 types of sourcing company in China, Choosing the most appropriate one.

1.The commissioned agent: Based on the premise of trust ,you may pay the agent a fixed proportion(usually 5% to 10%) of total purchasing amount for the order that he follows. Also, there is a risk that commissioned agents will get money from the factory without telling buyers.
2.The trading company: If you purchase small quantity and don’t want to handle all the details of China production, you might need to work with a trading company. They can find small factories which are unable of dealing directly with oversea customers but are interested in the small orders.
The trading company adds its margin based on manufacturer’s price. That’s why many professional buyers want to “go direct”. But it is not rational because sometimes a trader might still be cheaper than a large factory even they add their margin.
3.The third party service provider: As the saying goes, you can eliminate the middleman,but you’ll have to take over the functions he performs or subcontract them to a third party.
If you place large orders, many manufacturers are willing to take the time to respond to a third-party’s inquiries. And the service fees will probably be low.

Does it make economic sense to import furniture from China?

Does it make economic sense to import furniture from China?

home-furniture -Wholesale Furniture in China.
The exchange rate of CNY is gradually reducing, bulk purchase of furniture is quite benefited from trading business. Not a little foreign businessmen already purchase furniture from China for decade years.

For example, If you are buying for entire home (250 square meters/ 2500 square feet) with a budget of USD 50000 or more it makes sense to buy entire furniture in China. The price in home country can be easily 3 to 4 times of price in China. Beside buying furniture, you will have the chance to see this exotic country.

It makes sense getting one travel to Shunde if you are buying lots of furniture, but if all you want is an odd sofa or a table that you fancy, it is recommended that you buy at a local store near your home that can offer personalized service and hassle free installation. Of course, it is not an easy decision to buy furniture from a country which is far off and go through the hassle of dealing with shipment and imports, but in the end, it is all worth it when you compare prices at home. In general, a piece of furniture that cost USD 1000 in China can cost 4000 to 6000 in the home country.
