Default How to Wholesale Consumer Electronics from China

1. Getting The newest gadgets? Online sellers know the power of being the one carrying new products. Even better are unique products. If you're sourcing electronics direct from the source in China you will be ahead of the pack for selling new products, and you could even be the only person in your country selling certain models.
2. What About Communication Problems?A common reason why small and medium electronics retail business owners are nervous about looking for suppliers in China is that they're uncertain about communicating with Chinese businesses. There's no longer any cause for concern: all electronics export companies in China will have at least a few staff who are good at communicating in English. Also, you'll easily find product descriptions and price quotations in English, from these Chinese electronics companies which are getting better at marketing to international importers.
3. How Are Electronics Delivered From China?You've heard of the 'global village' - although China is a long way away, it's actually not hard to ship products in any quantity from there to any international destination. Your suppliers will probably be able to advise on what's best for their products.
4. Choose couriers like DHL or FedEx for small or urgent shipments. Talk to forwarders in China or Hong Kong for assistance setting up larger shipments via air containers or sea freight.
5. Wholesalers, MOQ? Many would-be importers from China are put off by demands from Chinese suppliers for large first orders - in the range of thousands of pieces, and commitments to buy more. A better way to get into importing from China is often to form a relationship with a professional Chinese wholesaler.
6. Drop-Shipping - The Perfect Import Business?New importers from China are often nervous about building up stock which they can't sell. High value items like electronics can add up to a big business risk, if you are holding stock waiting to sell it.
7. One solution to this difficulty is dropshipping. You can advertise the products you've found from Chinese suppliers, but only pay for them when you receive orders. The Chinese dropshipper then delivers straight to your customer. You keep the profit without the risk, and without the hassle of handling and packing goods.
8. Low Risk Payment To Chinese Suppliers?With online wholesalers you can usually choose to pay in many international currencies, and even submit payment "the eBay way" - through Paypal secure online ordering. Paypal offers total protection for buyers, and dealing with their approved online electronics wholesalers will give you extra peace of mind.
9. Can You Afford not To Source From China?China has been described as the world's factory. The unbelievably cheap production costs for consumer electronics in China are well known to everybody.
10. Online wholesalers simply let you put those products straight in your cart, without all the hassle - and middlemen - normally associated with the import trade. With no sales taxes added or hidden charges, the price you pay.
