Choosing the right business partner from China is one of the most critical challenges that an importer should meet. It requires not only a lot of time but also a thorough verification of the contractor’s reliability. There are many ways to meet a potential business partner. The most common ones are Internet trading platforms and trade shows in China. Below we explain how to find a Chinese business partner.
Doing business online with the Chinese may seem as a big chance. In ordinary cases, online business is savvy, cost effective and easy: we save a lot of money, which would otherwise be spent on plane tickets, negotiations or onsite checks, so, in case of ordering simple, mass-produced goods, why bother? Obviously there are some risks, but some may say that if our potential partner has a status of a “golden supplier”, than what could possibly go wrong? Well, many things: it is not as easy as buying a book on Amazon.
