My HOW TO Guide to Buying in China

Published: 11 Mar 2014 00:14:41 PST

Over the past couple of months, I have written a guide for companies that import from China.

It is delivered in 15 emails, as below:

  1. Sourcing: Go on Your Own, or Use an Agent
  2. Sourcing: how to Identify Potential Suppliers
  3. Sourcing: how to Verify a Manufacturer
  4. Sourcing: Second Choices vs. “Never Again” Choices
  5. Negotiation: the Terms you Need to Discuss
  6. Negotiation: Keep some Leverage with the Supplier
  7. Pre-Production: Describing what you Want
  8. Communication: How to Manage Your Orders in China
  9. Quality Control: Check Quality Early in the Manufacturing Cycle
  10. Quality Control: Always Verify Quality Before Shipment
  11. Communication: Build Good Rapport with Suppliers
  12. Strategy: What Kind of Buyer Are You
  13. Longer Term: The 5 Steps to Develop a Supplier
  14. Longer Term: How Lean Manufacturing Helps a Factory Improve Quality
  15. Longer Term: How Lean Manufacturing Helps a Factory Improve Productivity

It’s not only the basics. There is also quite a lot of material for “advanced” buyers.
