China Sourcing and Manufacturing FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions

  Why use a sourcing firm?
There are many excellent factories in China;however, dealing with Chinese factories requires a lot of experience in terms of effective communications (in Chinese), product quality control process (material requirement, processing technologies, mid-production and end product quality testing), shipping and export management. Using a professional company like Shanghai Sourcing will help you buy goods from China with much less hassle and even lower cost!

  Do I pay more working with you than going straight to factories?
The answer is "NO." In several ways you end up paying less to work with us!
  First, a lot of factories don't deal with buyers directly;they are represented by agents.
  Second, many factories do have their own export departments; however, you will notice that using a professional export agent is lot more efficient than dealing with factories directly. When you try to find a product, you know that it could be made by many factories, not just one factory. Instead of searching them one by one, you can use a professional agent to bring you the right choice at once!
  Third, a professional agent knows how to control production quality, and substantially minimize your business risks!
