      Simple ways to verify Chinese suppliers

      Hello everyone, I am a new member from Beijing, China. There are many simple ways to verify a Chinese company, such as:

      1. If the company has a Chinese-version website except the English one
      2. If it has a business license
      3. If it has a detailed business address in China
      4. If there is information about it on the internet
      5. If it has a land line and so on

      Hi Poplarocean,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      These are some of the ways you can use to verify Chinese suppliers, you can also post a request for a company review right here on Wholesale Forum. Whenever you are not sure about the company you are interested in working with, you can post a review request in Wholesale & Dropshipping Reviews - Wholesale Forum, we shall then do our best to give you a full company evaluation for the supplier you have found.

      Thank you

      we do a lot of company verifications for our customers and you might be surprised to know more than 60% of the landlines either "don't exist", or "are never attended" or always busy....60% of the companies we verify fail at this step.

      To add, another trend we have noticed is a lot of the "Chinese fraud companies" will pick up the phone when they see an International number on their called ID, however, if its a Chinese number, they would not pick up.

      Interesting! We all know there are many ways to identify a Chinese company, can you share some with us?

      And
      1. and get someone to verify the posted Chinese information for you if possible
      2. and ask them to send you a photo if possible, in most cases registered company could be found in an official website of the local authority
      3. and verify that address using google maps / baidu maps
      4. and check if these information from other sources coordinates with those on their website
      5. and make a call in person during the working hours and talk to them!

      Anyway good post.
      These are just the basics. You will need to pay a site visit in person before you deposit your money with the supplier. At least you should hire someone to visit them and send the photos / videos to you.
      Be wise, be safe.
