DocShipper Tip: Don't keep a single product in mind. You have to be attentive to all the details. Once you've found a product that works, stay in your swing, and try to sell complementary products. These products will be directly linked to the product you are selling, so you will try to sell several products per order, a way of optimizing profits. As long as you've had the mindset, it would be easier for you to build a systematic supplier network from trade fairs in China.

DocShipper information: But please note that in the very first step, you should choose an export trading company suitable for purchasing. For that, Docshipper also offers the service to help you as well.

How to control the quality of products from trade fairs?

The hardest thing is to confirm the proper quality of the products from trade fairs. We couldn't deny the existed stereotype that "What is cheap is not good" for products made in China, while the price edge is exactly what an entrepreneur would value most.  Therefore, let's focus on three aspects to identify the real fine quality of goods.

The first protection from the local authority

Large-scale Chinese trade fairs as mentioned above will have the local government's support with their launches, fake enterprises wouldn't get a chance to get on the exhibition lists. For further inspection, a click to the National Enterprises Credit Information Publicity System can simply show the legality of any registered enterprises in China( with the help of Google Chrome translation plugin)

The valid documents

Taking the mentioned trade fairs as examples, the targeted products would be e-commerce platforms, stationeries, food&drinks, hardware, household products and organic products( as the orders of trade fairs above). For different products, you'll need respective documents to guarantee their fine quality.

E-commerce platforms

It's the same as any enterprise, so the business license will be enough.

Stationeries, hardware and household products

For those physical goods, the certificates of conformity will testify the quality of materials(such as plastics, metal, cotton, nylon etc.). When the hardware products requiring specialized processing, you have to do the investigation about the enterprise's legit skills to do the processing. Last but not least, the anti-fake labels are indispensable.

Food&drinks and organic products

Certificates of Origin are the most important documents needed, and make sure you pay extra attention to the shelf lives of the products to decide the method of shipping.
