In China there are hundreds of manufacturers and trading companies who supply the goods you want, but how to find the right one? We hope the following Information can help you.

1. Create a Win-Win Situation

You need always remember that it is very important to keep motivating your Chinese business partner. There is no permanent friends but permanent interests. Let them know that they will get their profits during your business will help your business a lot.You should make sure that you have got a win-win partnership in every of your cooperation.

2. Time is the best negotiation tool

For Chinese suppliers most of the price can be discussed and negotiated. But the best tool for price negotiation is time.
As long as the Chinese businessmen realize that they will lose the customers price will be changed immediately.You can never let them know what we need nor let them know the schedule is urgent.You can lock the transaction and products as soon as possible, so that you will not be at a disadvantage in the negotiations with the Chinese suppliers.The key to the negotiations is not to let your opponent feel desperate but use time to lock the reserve price.

3. Manage your relation

With nearly everything in China managing from a distance is hard.The distance is not only measured in geographical distance but also cultural distance.Both can be overcome by regularly visiting the supplier.This will increase your credibility and certainly builds long term commitment.To manage the relationship, make sure that you clarify what you expect and stick to your expectations.

More importantly is the fact that you want to stay with your suppliers as along as you are satisfied. Abandoning them to save money elsewhere can become a costly process.


A) China Sourcing Service
Low cost country sourcing is the centerpiece in most discussions of procurement cost reduction strategies. With the right procurement service provider and thorough plan, foreign companies that use China sourcing service can have their piece of cake and still enjoy it too as long as they ensure that they are accompanied by the right China sourcing consultant in current global economic situation.

China has emerged as a major sourcing hub and has been supplying corporations worldwide with products across all industrial areas. For businesses interested in setting up a supply base in China to buy products at competitive prices, opening a fully owned buying office locally is a potential option. Buyers may also choose to work with traders or work with a Procurement Service Provider providing a high quality outsourced China sourcing service or finally they can attempt to directly source from their home base in high cost countries.

The table below outlines the pros and cons of operating a fully owned buying office vs using an outsourced procurement service provider.
