Questions from 1st-time Yiwu Visitor



Questions:

Hi Jack,

The homepage is awesome, it helped me a lot.I m from germany and have a few questions.Last month i was in yiwu first time to get some experience. Sad that i saw your site AFTER my trip :)

Anyway, the most items i saw where produced for the chinese market, which means all the manuals or prints on the products where written in chinese or english.But i m looking for items which i can sell in germany.Here in germany i never saw any chinese letters on the boxing etc.

How they get those items in their foreign language?I saw many stuff which i were interested in but i can t sell it like this.And thats why i didn t bought them.

The receipts are very funny. It s just a piece of paper without any stamp or description in english which i could show the german tax office.just some chinese words and some prices.They don t even know how to write a real "invoice".Why is that?Actually they should know it because i m not the first customer they saw.

I paid cash but i was little scared that i never receive my items or maybe next day they will just be like : "hum? who are you?"Did you ever heard about cheatings like that?

Do you have german talking agents?

thanks in advance

Answers:

Dear M,

Jack Yang here. Thank you very much for your message. It's a pity we didn't come across earlier.

Regarding your questions:

#1 Normally, the suppliers can provide English packing, or blank packing. That's all. If you need your own packing, we will have to get a packing company.

#2 For invoices, shipping and customs papers, it's all done by export service agents like us. Most suppliers in the market just bring products from factory to Yiwu. That's it.

#3 Normally, they don't say"hum, who are you?". But there is always a risk of quality for collecting without any QC. There is a danger that you may not receive your products because they don't know how to ship, or they write your addr. wrong.

We have a few customers in Germen now. But i'm not sure what do you mean by "talking agent". Can you also let me know more about your business? so i can see how we can help you in the future.
