If you want to order goods from China you can use websites Alibaba.com, Made-in-China.com, HKTDC.com, GlobalSources.com etc.
They are offering direct contact with sellers and easy way to buy goods. But China is really big country and all Chinese companies can't be found there.
For example let's take Alibaba as most important and biggest of all B2B websites.
Alibaba.com in English is opened for all foreign customers. Alibaba.cn (1688.com) is only in Chinese language and is designed only for Chinese customers.
Comparation according Alibaba official data as of December 31. 2012.
- Alibaba.com (has 36.7 million registered users, more than 2.8 million suppliers storefronts)
- Alibaba.cn (has 77.7 million registered users and more than 8.5 million suppliers storefronts)
Companies who have websites only in Chinese have two main problems. First is the language barrier and second is an export license.
Agents can help to resolve all barriers
Export License is the certification for export issued by relevant authority, in accordance with a country’s export commodities laws and regulations. In fact, in order to export products from China a supplier must either have a dedicated export permit (license) of their own or must “outsource” this process to an Import-Export company licensed to export any (non-restricted) product. The Import-Export company would accordingly appear on the export documents for the customs clearance. This is a normal procedure and totally legitimate in China. For some suppliers Chinese market is big enough.
Reasons why some suppliers prefer to use an Import-Export companies may be as follows:
- They pay agent fee but it saves them labor cost and other costs.
- Import-Export companies may have beneficial know-how about the market and government regulations. They are professional to settle documents and refund matters.
- Import-Export companies have regular business so they get the tax refund faster from the government.
On the other hand, for smaller companies it is commonly not optimal for them to have their own export licence because the licence has relatively high associated fees and they must have at least one employee that is certified to perform the export procedure to China Customs. Therefore, instead of having their own licence and performing the export procedure themselves they outsource this process to a dedicated Import-Export company, who are licensed to export any (non-restricted) product.
All agents use minimum two languages (Chinese and English are basic) therefore language can't be a barrier.
Why hire an agent?
We give you web links from Alibaba.cn,Taobao.com and Yiwu in the left column of this website. You can search products on your own and suppliers in Chinese and then contact an agent, or hire agent to do it for you.
B2B Chinese websites in English language haven't been presented on our website.
Agents are Import-Export oriented companies mostly with required export license.
If you hire them to search products for you, they will contact all companies with or without export license, in English or Chinese language (Alibaba.com and Alibaba.cn and all other websites). What's more, they will look for products across Asia, not just from China. Mostly, they'll get better prices than you can do.
The most important thing in international trade is security. As you know, you can on your own risk, purchase goods from China. In this website in menu Buying assistant -> “Direct buying without agents” we give you some basic knowledge of buying and trading on your own.
Do not rely on third parties Websites. Business to Business services are common hunting grounds for the scammers.
Our mission is to prevent frauds, and we have started with marking web link's to the Chinese companies, so you can see how long they have their own websites.
All companies are in menu on the left "Find company" sorted by product categories, but same product can be found in more categories. We are choosing and publishing only websites with both language Chinese and English, or Chinese and some other language. Chinese websites only in English language are potentially very dangerous.
No one except website administrator can't add web link or change some of data.
Choice of adding companies is random. We started with about 10.000 companies and adding of new companies will be continuously.
Note : We are not authorized to tell you that certain websites or companies are legitimate.
