China Wholesale Retail

China has fast taken over the world when it comes to manufacturing products. In today’s guide we shall look at purchasing the differences between buying wholesale and retail items from China – as well as how you can benefit.

Difference Between Buying Wholesale and Retail

Most consumers buy their items at retail price, however, as this is the price that we pay for items in a store. A large majority of wholesale items are only available to business owners, however several wholesalers in China are willing to sell wholesale products to consumers if they purchase in bulk.

 What products can you buy from China?

Whether you’re buying wholesale or retail items from China – there are literally thousands of products to choose from. Some of the most popular items include clothing, electronics, raw materials, food products and more.

 There are companies that offer both raw materials and final products to people around the world wanting to take advantage of the great prices that Chinese wholesalers and retailers can offer. The cheaper raw materials can be used in production more locally.

Buying Wholesale and Retail Products from China

 Buying wholesale and retail products from China is easy, and thanks to the growth of the internet it has become much more accessible to the world. An increasing number of people are purchasing their Chinese products online – and with the increased demand, more and more Chinese companies are building websites for their products.

Even if you are buying retail price products from China (this is most applicable if you only want one of any particular item) you can still benefit from lower prices on products than in your local store. Shipping costs are surprisingly lower than you might think, with many Chinese sellers offering free postage on some items – particularly if you buy wholesale in bulk.

The only disadvantage to buying your retail and wholesale products from China is that there are always risks involved in dealing with overseas companies. Make sure that whatever company you buy from has a strong returns policy as well as good reviews and customer feedback. Always ensure they offer you a secure and safe payment method such as PayPal to pay for your goods.

 The internet isn’t the only place you can buy Chinese products however. Particularly if you are after Chinese retail price products, you will find them in almost every store you visit! Large business owners also choose to visit China to see the factories first hand and speak with the owners about arranging the best possible deal for them.

Some of the larger Chinese manufacturers also visit major cities around the world and attend expos whereby you get the opportunity to speak to them in person about your wholesale needs without traveling to China. Keep an eye out for any expos in your local area.

Buying Wholesale Products to Sell as Retail

One of the main reasons why people buy wholesale products is so that they can then sell them on at retail price to make a profit.

Since websites like EBay have come about, millions of people around the world have started their own e-businesses from the comfort of their own home. The Chinese wholesale market has helped make the process easy, and a huge number of products sold online have originated in China. It is not only e-business owners who can benefit from selling wholesale products from China at retail prices. Many convenience stores and gift stores source their products from China – particularly food products and toys. There are limitations as to what foods can be imported from China, depending on your country’s customs regulations, however there are still thousands of items such as candy, dried food and nuts that are regularly exported from China around the world. In fact, 50 percent of the USA’s apple juice originates from China.

Purchasing your wholesale products from China will significantly increase you profit margins when selling the products on.
