How to - source goods from China

Many people predict that China will be the largest economy in the world in the 21st century and will soon surpass the United States. Although the relative cost of manufacturing in China has risen in recent years, the country is still often the cheapest location for retailers and manufacturers to source goods or parts.

Do you want to join the thousands of companies who benefit from the low cost of sourcing from China but don't know where to start?

China is not an easy market and it is recommended that first-time buyers have an understanding and follow certain precautions before embarking on any potential transaction.

Remember that China is a medium to long term market and it is important to stay focused on your goals, even if you encounter problems. Patience and perseverance should be key. 

If you get it right, the rewards can be well worth the effort.
