    [size=+2]Without Having to Break the Kid's Piggybank![/size]

    Many of you know me, some have known me for years. I've been selling online and actively participating in numerous wholesale and small business forums since the turn of the century. I generally show up as pete, Pete or peteVA, where just pete has been taken.

    For years I was selling within the US a full range of imported gifts and specialty items, 95% of which were from China. I sold that business a couple of years ago and am now selling small electronics from China to dropshippers and retailers worldwide.

    Over the years, I've developed some friends in China. Most recently, in my electronics operation, I have run into Jenny who has a background similar to mine, in that she has also been involved in the ceramics and gifts business. She is now in Shenzhen, the "Electronics Capitol of China" and after doing me some favors of checking out some suppliers for me, we got together and decided there was a demand for such a service and we would fill the niche.

    Affordable Business Verification is what we offer. Nothing fancy, no frills. There are others in China offering all sorts of service, including having your own paid representative in factories, to ensure the correct components are used and the goods are up to specs. We do nothing like that. It is a simple operation. I sell the service, she visits the companies you request us to verify.

    Once you place your order, prepare for some surprises! That fancy "factory" website may be a widow operating from home. Or, as with many "factories" it will be simply a Trading Company (exporting wholesaler) operating in an office park. Keep in mind, both of these may be honest people who deliver what they claim, but maybe not quite the 300 employees and a smokestack you expected.

    And some will be obvious shams! This is where you definitely find what you were afraid of is true. Having done business with other businesses, Jenny can tell quite quickly when your supposed supplier is nothing more than an Internet connection and possibly a phone. Be prepared for anything when you first order from us, as anything is possible!

    We will also do Online Only checks for the rest of China for just $12.50. Just having someone who can read the documents is easily worth that!

    What agreat service for those who can't get out to China personally.

    We only deal directly with our factories -visit them several times a year and have built up some good relationships.

    It must be very difficult for anyone starting afresh

    I would first try it out before saying anything. Sometimes things are too good to be true

    While that may be true, over 4,000 posts and being here for years should be some assurance. Plus literally hundreds of forum members who have sent me funds for some reason or another who have never lodged a complaint.

    The folks who are getting reports daily seem quite satisfied.

    Hello Pete:
    Good service.
    But can you extend your service area to the whole Guangdong province China?

    it is more complicated to find the correct registered company's name in China, because the China government only register in Chinese, meanwhile, the exporter must has English name, so sometimes, the English name is not proved by China government when face business arbitration. So, it is more important to have a visit to the supplier, taking photos, get the copy of the certificates, make specimen chops, etc, this is the first evidence in case of any dispute, especially for some T/T payment term business.

    The person can directly goes to the local registeration office to check the certificate, this is very important indeed, so, Pete definitely gets good idea.

    Nothing personal Mitch, but I can't tell you how many times a day I get asked questions that are fully answered on the websites I build and provide links to.

    Following this one in my original post - ******************** - would show you that I offer 2 services. An in-person visit to businesses within SZ, and online records checks by someone who reads and speaks both Chinese and English, so a comparison can be made, if necessary. We are up front about it being online only and charge only $12.50 for this, about the price for a visit to a burger barn in the UK, I believe.

    Not picking on you. Not only here in the threads, but by PM, MSN and email I'll get asked daily about do my dropship prices include shipping, which is clearly stated on each page and in large font on the home page, as well as what is the warranty, with it's own dedicated tab at the top of the pages, etc.

    Some days I truly wonder why I take the time to have websites at all, since half the people never go to them, or if they do they don't read of comprehend what is written there.

    So, yes, our in-person visits are limited to Shenzhen, but our online checks are China-wide.
