    would you buy china product ?

    as topic, would you buy product from china ?
    Cause i plan to create a site helping foreigner to buy from china web site, yah i know few site is doing that but i think i able to beat them on prices and service ....

    Me :
    Electronic gadget. - for me abit risky due to low QC and difficult warranty.

    Cloth and foot wear - possible, due to low prices but some time worry on quality.

    Small electronic item (LED, Display item, Thumb drive) - yes, low cost, more choice and different design.


    Sport equipment - yes and not, i will buy those will not dangerous my life, for example, sport kite, mountain board but not parachute, paramotor.

    Small gift - yes more alternative choice and cheaper in prices.


    Please input ....

    thanks

    Well considering that the majority of things sold are made in China, Taiwan, etc...
    If it were me and I had not met the person in real life before you are doing business with, I would do a small order to start to build trust and build slowly...the small order amount would be equivalent to the money I could afford to lose if they just screwed me and did not deliver...
    Best of luck.

    First read this and it hit me:
    All the spam on forums is for stuff like this and most if not all that spam from china.

    Okay, now to your question.

    In short, no.
    I am in the USA.
    I am going to buy electronics, I will get from amazon or dell, etc online.
    Or just go to the nearest store here.

    Is there a computer 100% made in the U.S. anymore since Dell became an elephant in the industry?? I can't think of one...
    the key if you are directly outsourcing the work to China or wherever is to have a U.S. "assembly" point on the product for the PR, etc...heck, Fords aren't even 100% U.S. any more...

    This is not whether a person, or I, would buy a product made in china, but rather from a website selling products directly from china.
    Big difference.
    I would not trust, and it may be just me, buying from an offshore site.

    Ya man. That's why all of our stuff here is marketed to be from "America" even though most of it is not!

    For example in the e cigs niche...98% of the products are made in China if not more. Very few American buyers would buy the product direct shipped from China. A lot of them will buy products that are assembled by another company based in the US (normally Florida), and re-branded with said company's name.

    You throw "China" into the conversation and "Lack of Quality Control, " "Inferior Product," etc arguments arise. Even though its the same product...all goes back to the local branding and marketing of the product.

    For Sonny's question, if you're going to outsource from China same tips recommended as previous and concur with Iowadawgs views being similar to most U.S. shoppers. Hence, you have to work on the "assembly" point or branding to not have a Chinese brand or face to it I think.

    Best of luck.

    actually i don't plan to invest in retailing or rebranding, what i do is pretty simple, i provide a list of product from china retailer store and help you to purchase, i don't hold product quality or responsibility, only responsible from my site is product will arrived your house and unbroken ......


    Basically you buy, i ship with china prices + my commission .

    That's cool. Maybe you just emphasize the product and brand name and don't bring up the country of production?

    When you get the site up let us know to check it out!
    Cheers,

    I think your mode of operation will be more suited to B2B(Business 2 Business) instead of B2C(Business 2 Consumers)..

    Computer shop owners who assemble PCs would readily buy through you. They are the ones looking for electonic parts at wholesale rates. When Chinese goods are assembled at a location outside China, the possibility of its sale increases.
