looking for recommendations of sourcing agents in China
To those who might reply, the OP is seeking recommendations, not self promotion.
Maryam, any particular area of China or any particular type of stock?
Some advice . . .
You should ensure the following from an agent:
1. Experience in the product(s).
2. Be close to the cities where the factories are located.
3. Speaks your language.
4. Understands your requirements.
5. Can provide testimonials.
Not all agents suit all people or products.
What products are you looking for? In China, there are many industry towns, so, it's crucial to source from the right place. For example, for cheap jewelry and hand crafts, try Yiwu; for electronics, try Shenzhen; for hand bags, try Guangzhou; for furniture, try Foshan; for tyre, try Qingdao. And so on.
After you have decided the right place, you may search the sourcing agents in that specific area. It will not work if you find a sourcing agent in Yiwu but actually the products are made in Guangzhou, as the sourcing agent will not be possible or economically feasible to closely monitor the production and assure quality, considering China is such as massive country.
It's not easy to find a reliable experienced sourcing agent in China. Some agent don't know how to negotiate with the factory so you may not receive the best price with high quality.
so i guess you used some already? are they good to recommend?
Yes.I'd rather to recommend myself. Haha......
lol,,,GOOD FOR YOU.
