Commonly used social media are Facebook, Linkedin, WhatsApp, WeChat, etc. Chinese people use WeChat more often.
4. Freight Forwarding
As we all know, the indispensable link between import and export is transportation, and transportation is divided into various channels: sea, air, land, etc. Many well-known freight forwarders have offices in China, and they know the strength of some Chinese foreign trade companies. So if you know the freight forwarder, you can also get some Yiwu agent information through them.

If you have some friends or relatives who are engaged in import and export business, then they must have certain agency information and freight forwarding information in their hands. And if you and your friends both work with the same company, then you can negotiate more reasonable commissions.
6. Customs Data
Customs data refers to the real document records extracted from the “customs bills, bills of lading, and commodity inspections” of the customs of various countries in the world. With customs data, you can find sellers, learn about competitors, and more. Customs data can be said to be an essential trade assistance tool for import and export enterprises.
7. Airport, Hotel Advertising
Powerful Yiwu agency companies will choose to place long-term publicity advertisements in international trade cities, airports, hotels, and other places with high passenger traffic. When you visit Yiwu and don’t know where to contact the Yiwu agent, you might as well write down the contact information on these advertisements and try to get in touch. If you are already in Yiwu, then I suggest that you must visit their company when you choose an agent. You can look at the scale and sample room of the agency company. Seeing is believing, and the promotional information written in the advertisement is not necessarily real.
However, it must be understood that “China’s best Yiwu agent” is a very vague occupational title, and almost anyone can “claim” himself to be the best Yiwu agent.
Therefore, you need to make an informed decision when choosing this agent, otherwise, you may lose far more than his commission amount. Therefore, after quoting from different agents, you need to compare the scope of services, whether you have professional import and export knowledge and experience, whether you have a legally registered company, etc. I wish everyone can find a reliable agent and business is booming with the help of the agent.
