      Newbie wants to Deal with Chinese Factories - Looking for Best Way for Direct Contact

      Hi all,

      What is the best way to source factories in China? I've used Alibaba and always get the feeling I'm speaking to someone sat in a tiny office trying to rip me off.

      I would really love to speak directly with the factories and fly out there to negotiate the deals.

      Cheers,
      Nathan

      Hi,

      Stay away from Alibaba. I had very bad dealing from this site. When I was new it looked like a great deal.
      There is no way to verify the company really exists other than going to the factory which is recommended.

      Hi Nathan,

      If you are not satisfied with Alibaba, you can refer GlobalSources. You can inquiry the whole category and the supplier will reply you very quickly.

      Hi Nathan,

      You are not alone in having that feeling, and sadly what you feel is too often a reality.

      Since retiring due to ill health after running my importing business for 22 years I have taught hundreds of people how to safely source small (or large) quantities direct from real manufacturers in China and other countries at genuine ex-factory prices.

      I don't recommend the popular free B2B sourcing sites, but instead I provide my students with a small list of sites. There they can be sure that if a supplier is listed as a manufacturer, that is exactly what they are.

      During my 22 years running my importing business, I was never ripped off by a Chinese company, and neither were any of the franchisees that I appointed in 4 countries. Once you know how to deal direct you will find it easy and pleasurable as well as being extremely profitable.

      Only a handful of my franchisees ever visited the factories and most of my students could not afford the time or the money. You can safely source from home.
