7 ways to choose China reliable supplier in international trade?

7 ways to choose China reliable supplier in international trade?

1.Real Register Company

It shows company/factory status truly, all files information consistency,including business license and registration certificate.

The sales staff generally say that their company’s quality is good, they have rich industry experience, then has honesty and trustworthiness, however I would say that most of it is credible, but if you are unlucky, you still meet the fake company.

So you must see the corporation license in relevant government departments, which can help you to have rights and kinds once you have a dispute with the company. As you know, the office address and the sales staff can be changed, but the corporation license is a legal effect.

Then,the people who business many

years with Chinese also know that your china supplier both have Hong Kong and China mainland receivables account for international business. Hong Kong company’s use registration certificate, and it must update every year with government. The China mainland company is also. If you want to know when the company be set up, you should see its earliest registration certificate.

2.Quality problem

It’s a prerequisite that what king of product quality you want to have, is determined by buyer rather than the Chinese supplier. For instance, it’s impossible to make value equal to UD$100 by UD$50 .But we can request the top quality by US$50 with UD$50 value . Buyer can use data to control quality.

Let them provide AQL report , then we can demand that would be rework if beyond a percent , Or to get a discount certain ,or give more free spare part.

Generally the Chinese suppliers cannot will not easily agree, because it is related to the profile. Then we have to go to the negotiation, we can try to a draft, it’s better to accept, the reliable supplier will cooperate you as much as possible.

If some supplier agree your demand easily,need pay more attention. He just want to get this order, don’t consider carefully.After he gets the deposit,he may tell your demand to high who can’t meet it. Then buyer is passived.So buyer can write all special quality demand in PI.So my point, if the suppliers will cooperate effectively and achieve the buyers’ goal who will be put in Reliable suppliers lists.

3.Delivery time

There is a delivery time in each quotation. The fast is from 5 to 20 working days, the low speed is from 35-60working days. But a reliable suppliers is not must the fastest delivery time. As a buyer need to know the Deadline  local Warehousing , then estimate the order delivery time, let the Chinese suppliers before this date. But the reality is that In China, 70% of small enterprises are delayed delivery, because their suppliers will delay to them,who give VIP customers supply firstly,. So I concluded that the Chinese suppliers keep their promise date for you, buyer can put in the reliable suppliers lists.


Price is a necessary factor, but it isn’t the only one.In same industry, actually, price is more or less.if  price is much more different, maybe their brand effectiveness is more different,or can give some different value. To sum up, it is reasonable(middle) price in one industry ,can put in the reliable suppliers lists.

5.Payment types

Many buyer want to use the letter of credit,which is considered if buyer is famous brand or re-order.. Buyer want to use L/C for first order, you have to prepare to have a long-negotiation.And the normal payment items is Exwords factory,other is need negotiation.FOB Hong Kong can be accepted. Then 30% Deposit,70% Deposit is normal.So I concluded that if they will use L/C payment in

Future business,and all your payment they will try to test. types at their second trade, it can put in the reliable suppliers lists.


After-sales service, warranty service, technical support service,etc. I want to say that it can reflect a reliable suppliers service is not normal status is to face the problems and difficulties.So if the buyer in trouble status,and a china supplier try their best to help you,and no get any profits.I can say not just a reliable suppliers, but the quality of long-term cooperation partner.


Buyer can know many information by visiting supplier website,not only long-term product layout, but also the developmental ability of new product.

Actually, buyer don’t believe to many engineers and equipment in supplier company from sales mail,you can open a official website of Chinese suppliers ,then you can realize.From supplier website, You can know Chinese suppliers culture?what’s the latest news? Is there an industry trend analysis? Have any professional knowledge? And so on. if the website not only bring good user experience, but the products are particularly competitive, and we can also learn more industry professional knowledge, so this Chinese suppliers can be put in the reliable suppliers lists.

At last, .to do long-term business, there must be several reliable suppliers to support you.it’s very hard to find a reliable and long-term cooperative suppliers, it need time to develop and foster.Only a win-win situation,it can build a long-term cooperation relation

This is my original intention of writing a blog, I hope to share my experience of foreign trade, if can be useful to you, I have great sense of accomplishment.
