If you google to find China supplier,you many find many supplier,and each produce similar products,you will be puzzled.To contact with all of them is impossible.You need to narrow it down,specify the products,give the products details.Such as,if you search”baby stroller”,that would be many,but if you search “baby stroller with carrycot”,”baby stroller with aluminum frame”,the result will be less.


About Chinese suppliers,there are several types: manufacturer vs. 3rd-party supplier; Big corporation vs. small family-owned; 3rd-party supplier with in-house product development capability (can design and make according to your requirement) vs. 3rd-party supplier that just buys-in and sells-out; vertically integrated manufacturer(produce raw material,then assembly them) vs. assembly-based manufacturer(raw material outsourced); etc. Properly categorizing the suppliers will help you understand what you need. For example, if you need to import products in a narrow range, you may choose a manufacturer other than a 3rd-party supplier. If you are a small business and need dedicated attention, you may want to develop a good relationship with a small family-owned business.


For small factory with raw material outsourced,sometimes their material supplier is not quality controlled strictly,it may arouse product problem.For factory with design ability,make sure product structure is stable and safety tested.Some factory just copy other’s design,it just look similar with brand company,but the structure is worse.


Also need to pay attention to patent issue.If the product has patent,don’t buy it,it will meet Custom Clearance problem.
