#4.Visit the supplier factory

visit-led-light-factory-lightstecAfter you have contact with the led light supplier in China and if you have ready place an sample order.You need to think about meet them in their factory.

I strongly ask you meeting them in their factory. That is a important thing you have to do before order bulk order.

First,you can check their workplace and manufacturing process.That is the most important thing to make sure the product quality.

Second,know that factory, the salesman and their manager and their boss.That will make trust with each other.In this way you can insure your payment is save.

Third,and normally,when you place large order,in this way you can get a better discount from the factory.

#5,Request of the inquiry

>You need to make sure what kind of led light products you want.

>No matter the same products, the material quality also have different level.So we need to make sure what quality led lights we want.

>Need to think about how to ship the goods.DHL/UPS, by sea,by air.

#6,Place an order

sample-order-lightstecWe suggest,you need to order samples before place big orders.

When you meet the supplier,inspect the factory.Then you have do more jobs than your competitor in the market.Now you can start your importing business.

We don’t want to make any mistake before order bulk order.No matter how good the supplier looks from their outside.Don’t let them persuade you ordering big order before check samples.

From sample order, you will know the payment process, delivery time, product quality.

When you have the sample, check it careful.If something don’t fit your request.You can ask supplier to change.Or if the supplier can not offer the right product you want.You have better change a new supplier.

#7:Payment Methods

payment_methods-lightstecPayment is make sure both of supplier and buyer are in save way.

Companies are always have their own company account.And it will use their company name as bank account name.

Don’t trust using person name account if you are doing business in beginning.Because some fraud will steal email and send mail to supplier.This have happened.

You have better make sure the bank account is correct in 2 ways. For example.

Mail/phone/skype/whatsapp.

#8.Avoid bad products

low-price-low-qualityYou get what you paid.So don’t choose the lowest price products.

You may know that there is no lowest price products in China market.Different material have different price.

For example, The led chips.Price from hight to low

Brand chips(such as Cree,Osram,Epistar,Nhia,Sanam)
Normally,the chips price USA>Japan>Taiwan,Korea>China
Even the Chinese chips, there are also many quality level.
Gold wire>alloy wire
Copper frame>Iron frame
Silicon glue >epoxy glue
One bin color>different color

This show you the price is according to the material.Do research,check how is the price level in the market.Know more about the material.Then you can select the right price product.

Select the lowest price product means you select lowest quality product. Never don’t this.

#9.Shipping Methods

Types-of-Shipping-Methods-lightstecBefore order,you have to know how to ship the goods to your office/warehouse.

Delivery time from fast to low

>DHL/UPS/FEDEX/TNT

Express is the fast way to delivery goods.It always can delivery your goods to almost any place in the world within one week.And this is also the most expensive way.This way is the good way for weight lower than 100kg.

>By air

By air also is a fast way to delivery goods.The price is lower than express.But you need to go to airport to do customs clearance.Of course, there are some companies can do this job for you .

>By sea

By sea is the low cost way to delivery goods. But normally it will need few weeks to delivery goods from China to your country.

#10.Order plan
