      To make it short:

      Order-preparation stage:
      1, how to find the most competitive pricing factory.? Remember cost layout varies (sometimes a lot) in different areas in any country. If you are not familiar with this layout, ask someone for help.
      2, how to confirm the most competitive pricing supplier is competitive in credit, manufacturing capability ect? Go to visit by yourself. you can also ask some local agent for help to undertake factory audit to save your cost.
      3, How to make sure your product requirements/specifications are understood/translated correctly? request some samples, but usually you need to pay for these samples, and sometimes, suppliers will charge 2-3 times of the unit price.

      Order-manufacturing stage:
      1, how to make sure all the quantities are manufactured correctly?
      2, if any quality problem occurred, how to make sure the factory ACTUALLY correctly probably?.
      3, how to make sure the order will be delivered on time?

      Since you are thousands miles away from the factory, you can ask some inspection company or import agents to supervise this order. they will tell you all the truth to avoid any surprise when goods arrived.

      Order close-up stage:
      shipping, duty, tax, ect are almost of the same operation process, if you are not familiar with this process, it's better to ask some broker for help to avoid any problem of: Goods detained, goods arrival delayed, too high transportation cost ect.

      I personally advise buyer deals at FOB origin terms, in this way, you can control everything on the shipment.

    6. Thank you for this post:

      Hi, I am a beginner and thought about goods from China but I don't know how to evaluate if it is safe to do it because they ask for full payment first so how can I know if they will deliver the goods?

      This is a business that is in London but goods are from China and the payment is through a Bank of China to a Chinese guy, can someone help me here?
