Maneuvering Through China Wholesale

Knowing the Best Path

Now that you know what goods you want to sell, it’s time to select a supplier. The number of options can feel overwhelming. It is important to choose the provider that best meets your needs. Many sellers choose to work with China-based suppliers. China-based suppliers have the experience to manufacture your product at a reasonable cost. Trying to get through the noise to find the best wholesale supplier can be tricky. Here are two options to get you started on the journey.

Find China Suppliers

Getting the right supplier is your key to success. You want to make sure you’re working with a quality supplier. Your reputation and business could be on the line. When it comes to supplying and manufacturing goods, China is a global leader. This means that most China suppliers are familiar with working with foreign companies. The Canton Fair is a popular solution to navigating the China wholesale market. The Canton Fair (also known as The China Import and Export Fair) is China’s largest and oldest trade fair. It is also the most representative of the China wholesale market. Usually held in Spring or Fall, The Canton Fair offers a variety of goods and distribution options.

The Canton Fair is organized by the China Foreign Trade Centre and has been around since 1957. Many international businesses participate in the fair including scientific research institutions and factories. The fair covers most industries such as electronics, consumer goods, textiles, and home décor. Attendance is free but there are other considerations. You will have to pay for transportation and accommodations to China to attend the fair. The fair itself is exceptionally large, with 60,400 booths and 25,000 exhibitors covering 1,185,000 m2 (12,760,000 sq ft) of exhibition space.

Since the fair is in China and attended by people from around the world, English will not typically be the first language of exhibitors. Some company representatives may speak basic English or may hire English speakers just for the event. This means that if you have specific or complex questions, you may not get an answer. At least not the answer that you’re looking for.

Work with a Sourcing Agent

A sourcing agent is a great resource for navigating the China supplier market. The China sourcing agent is going to be local to China. Because a China-based sourcing agent is going to be able to communicate with your partners in China, they can help negotiate costs, shipping, and product quality. Since a sourcing agent is a direct link to you and China businesses, they will act on your behalf at all times. China-based sourcing agents are local and are aware of the variables associated with working with China businesses. If your product is unique or you plan to do business in China multiple times, a sourcing agent is a good option.
