Have Any Questions?
Here is a list of some Frequently Asked Questions about sourcing, manufacturing and importing from China.
Why should I hire a sourcing agent in China？
There are a lot of unknowns in China. You need to have presence in the place where manufacturing is carried out. Even if you feel that you can trust a supplier, there will still be issues that need to be dealt with. Language barriers, cultural differences, and different time zones will make the process sluggish and time-consuming. It is inefficient to handle these issues over Skype or by email.
Usually, you need to be on the factory floor to handle issues that crop up during the production process. A good sourcing agent will work in your best interests, manage issues during all stages of production, conduct quality control inspections, handle paperwork for shipping and so on.
What are the modes of payment to the supplier? which is the most reliable?
Work with a good sourcing agent and route your payments through them. The usual terms of payment when starting something new is 30% deposit before production starts, and 70% balance payment before the product ships from the supplier.
Are Chinese manufacturer able to match western quality standards?
Yes. Most high-end products – ranging from smartphones to vehicles – are now made in China. Keep in mind, however, that you get what you pay for.

What is an estimated lead time for making a sample?
