If you want to select good suppliers from China
Collecting and sorting supplier information and the quotation is one of the main tasks of the 1688 Agent. We follow a professional 1688.com search system: Good suppliers = Trustpass member + strong merchants + In-depth factory inspection + more employees
- Enter 1688.com and choose the “trustpass member” sellers.
- Select the strong merchants (the logo is a bull’s head)
- Select “Deep Factory Inspection”
- Finally, choose a company with more employees, at least 50 employees or more, preferably more than 100 employees. The more people the better. (It needs to be explained here: I don’t mean that a manufacturer with a small number of people will have poor quality, but it is just a matter of probability. A manufacturer with a large number of people and a large scale has a higher probability of good quality. Can the number of employees be faked? This is not necessary. No worries, this is the one that Alibaba entrusts to the four major international evaluation agencies to check, and it has to be reviewed once a year, so it is highly credible.)
Of course, there are more than these, more methods we will inform in the future article, please pay attention to us!
Therefore, you need to find a suitable 1688 agent in the following five situations:
- If you are a new buyer or an importer.
- If your business is small and the competition in your country is high
- If your sourcing efficiency is low
- If u want to save purchasing cost
