Top Five Tips for Safe Sourcing
#1: Do your due diligence on potential suppliers and only buy from legit businesses. (see “supplier verification” section below)
#2: Use a bilingual contract and purchase order (PO). This Chinese lawyer explains why.
#3: Make sure the name on the supplier’s bank account matches their business license and contract. If these items are not the same, you will have little recourse in the event the supplier underperforms and you need to go to court.
#4: Don’t release payment until an independent 3rd party as check the quality of goods before they ship out.
#5: If the deal is too good to be true, it is probably a scam. You just can’t buy authentic brands (like Apple or Gucci) direct from “the factory”!
