Any Online References for Yiwu Market?
Even Yiwu market is not fully online, there is still some references for you to have a look at Yiwu market.
Yiwugou.com is owned by the same company runs Yiwu market. It covers the most Yiwu market products so far. This company sent out a lot of their staff to market to take pictures and write descriptions for suppliers in market, then publish their products online.
This way works for a time. But obviously, it's impossible for them to keep updated with ALL suppliers. Suppliers can have new products in their showroom each week.
This means, for a lot of products on yiwugou.com, they actually don't exist in the market anymore. At the same time, a lot of new products on the market are not online.
Can I Just Order Via Yiwu Market Online?
Personally, i would like to say "BETTER NOT". esp. for the fist time visitors.
Emails and online chatting kill lots of time. There is high possibility that you spent lots of time, searched out a product, send out lots of emails, but received nothing.
The possible reasons are either technical problems, or the supplier is not having it anymore, or they're just too busy...
Most importantly, for a lot of products, you have to personally check the quality and feel the quality.
I have a customer had his agent mixed a container of home decoration products according to pictures, but he could hardly sell half of what he bought :-(
