It is one of the biggest challenges for Amazon sellers who want to import from China, to find reliable Chinese suppliers. Once you find a product to sell on Amazon, you need to identify a legitimate and the highest quality supplier to manufacture it.
These are some important points sellers need to keep in mind:
On sourcing sites like Alibaba, there are lots of scammers or traders who pose as manufacturers. It is difficult to recognize the legitimate suppliers.
When buying from a trading company, its not possible to get the best price as traders will keep their profit margin.
Sellers might end up dealing with suppliers who don’t provide the best product quality.
