The most important part of your job is to find a reliable factory in China. I mean a good factory, good quality of products, reliable and conflict is minimal.
That`s possible to find a lot of firm on the Internet or online sites (like alibaba or global sources). You can find the product which is you want so easily. When you find a company on the Internet just make sure company is an approved company "verified suppliers". This is a solution but you still can`t make sure is that the right company. This type of company information and papers are checking by sites worker before giving approval. Usually for make sure they send the agent three times. Then, these companies get the verified suppliers certificate. In short, if you find verified suppliers you can make sure at least there is a company.
In addition, there is another solutions to make sure is the company real and are they real factory or just a agency. As I mentioned above, after finding a approved the company:
- Are they have a their own web site at the contact,
- If they have their own web sites, check the phone numbers and names are they compatible or not,
- At the product catalog, if they have too many kind of products, most likely this company is not the factory or first-hand seller. So from the product catalogs we could understand lots of things,
- If you still can`t make sure, you could call the companies fax number, if there is no fax signal that means fake. ( This is not the %100 solution )
However, a company in China to find out whether or not a real need to visit the factory. Before visiting the factory, don`t do any payment to them.
Would be very costly to check every factory by yourself, that`s why finding a consulting company is the best and economical solution to do everything on your behalf. Before to do some business with consulting firms make a written mutual rights and sign an agreement, get your business as usual warranty .
