✱ Reduce Overall Expense
Buying from China in person could be costly and time-consuming. A China sourcing agent help you in regard of the whole import process, so you don’t have to fly to China to visit or investigate the supplier. All these travel expenses actually cost a lot more than hiring a sourcing agent in China.
✱ Price Advantage
Believe it or not, most China sourcing agents may get a much better price against your own. Why? Because they can gather quantities from different customers together to ask for cheaper price from the suppliers. Since they have many local source channels, they will compare the prices from different suppliers before they give customer the best quote.
✱ Quality Control
Sourcing agent can visit factories and quality check in person. Actually, most of the goods shipped from China are without quality check from the customer themselves. This is often risky because if the customer receives any defect goods, it will cost so much and headache to send back the goods and have the suppliers resend them again.
It is always better to have a 3rd party inspector on behalf of the customer to do the quality check before goods are shipped to reduce risk of receiving defect goods.
✱ Shipping and Logistics Assist
China sourcing agent deal with logistic companies a lot, and often get better price from the logistics company if the sourcing agent is really deal a lot with them. No matter goods were purchased from wholesale markets or from the factory (some of the factories do not offer shipping service), they can collect goods and arrange shipment to any countries easily.
Some logistics companies are very tricky too, especially for newbie importer. The shipping company might quote you the freight cost which do not include any port landing management fee etc. So when the customer receive the goods from the custom, he will need to pay more extra which were not informed by the shipping company. With the help of the sourcing agent, customers can avoid all these unnecessary charges.
✱ Language Support
A good China sourcing agent must speak good English so that he can convey customers’ idea to the suppliers without any language barriers. Most of the time, they work as a Chinese to English interpreter and cultural navigator to ensure the message is not lost, and to help customers to develop a partnership with suppliers smoothly without influence of cultural difference.
