Always do prior research before coming to the wholesaler on the market .They would give you crazy prices once they get a hint that you are a novice, first-time buyer.
2,Get Pictures on Your Phone or with a blueprint

The first hour or more should be spent taking prices from various sellers. Take business cards from the seller whose product you find i…

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.

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.

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.
