    I have been looking for a supplier for a month now and cannot find any.
    Some are not responding according to what I'm looking for,
    Others don't pick up their phones when you've been waiting until 3 or 4 am to call them (being in the UK)

    Getting a supplier is really hard.

    As for payment, I feel safe with what I've learned about Escrow

    Hello,
    I cannot PM, can you help with your middle men in China? please.
    I am in UK and my customers are in Africa, I need a better quality of the products I sell because when they hear it's Africa, they care less about quality.

    I think that one of the keys to managing the risks is understanding more about.

    Thus, to help to understand more about the risks of doing business in China, I am conducting a research for a thesis about the frequency of common problems faced by companies when they source products from China, if you have some time please take part in this survey.

    Finding a good Chinese supplier can be very difficult, especially if you don't know exactly what to look for. There are a number of sourcing companies out there that can help connect you with a reliable and dependable supplier in China for almost any product.

    Importing from China is a dangerous business if you are not sure what your doing. At the very minimum, you must have someone over there onsite to oversee the quality control on your behalf.

    Hello everyone.. i am new to this whole, wholesale thing. and right now I am wondering one thing. I'm currently looking to get a package shipped to me in the U.S. from china. and in the description it says that shipping is free thru the china post air mail. but I am wondering if there are any other fees that might come up like a tax or anything else once it gets over here? and if so around how much would that be.?. .thanks in advance. :)

    btw. the package's dimensions are:
    20cm x 12cm x 10cm (7.87in x 4.72in x 3.94in)
    and it weighs :
    0.5kg (1.102lb.)

    trust always is the bridge between each other. That's correct. Just like my industry, logistics.

    It’s more likely one to two years old. Spikes in basic commodities like oil can drastically change the sourcing picture. This is where your network helps you
