The Chinese market is not just trading in China and in the past.

Your local market now has access to Chinese market.

For your consideration

In working with businesses in North America, Asia and Europe I feel the importance of the internet has been lost on many companies trading locally and world-wide trading.

The internet is often seen as something your business needs a presence on and not the main point in which to start trading. Maybe we saw it as something that was important in the 90’s but we have move on, that was yesterday idea!

This is not the case; the birth of the internet was as important as the birth of the printing press. Like the printing press, the internet is finding different uses very quickly given that the internet, like the printing press, enables faster commutation of information. If the printing press gave access to towns and cities., the internet gives us access to the world.   

There has been a world-wide change in the use of the internet which has been developing over the last 10 years.

The USA has leads the way, “if you are not online you not trading”. This is followed by China, not Europe, with number of users over 800 million and growing. The developing markets of Africa and South America will follow soon.

There has been a growing and changing use of the internet driven by the youth of the world over. 20 years ago, TV, books, newspapers were the main sources of information. Today the growing demands for information, educations and purchases is supplied by the internet.

There is now a generation which grew up with the internet and is working in business. They are changing the way in which we trade locally and international. This change is so great that your local market now has direct access to the international market.

This change is not a “Big Bang” but the changes are happening daily and are often missed by business.

Based on our company extensive knowledge we suggest the following key issues need to be considered;

  • Be seen on the internet world-wide. What services on the internet have been developed recently? Can new services help to grow your business or are they going to take control away from your business?
  • The amount of information being collected has given birth to the term “Big Data”. How can you put this information to use for our business?
  • With each passing generation the world-wide knowledge grows. The world-wide demand for education and training is growing fast along with the growing populations. Is your business seen as a source for information?
  • The world-wide control of distribution channels. The use of the internet enables people to access products and services faster. New big businesses are keen to manage and control access to products and services. Do these new businesses create new business opportunities or effect your current trading?

Shipping to the Chinese Consumer

shipping to china

Shipping of goods to China is not as well established as shipping goods from China. The exception to this is the services offered by the Chinese e-Malls; i.e. TMall, Taobao, JDBuy, etc.

The Chinese e-Malls have the following procedures for overseas purchases;

  • Goods are ordered / purchased from the overseas
  • Goods are dispatched to China to a central clearing centre e.g. Hangzhou for Taobao / Tmall.
  • The goods clear customs and duties and local taxes paid
  • Goods are despatched to the consumer in China
  • If goods are returned they are sent back to central clearing centre. Forwarding from there will depend on instructions from the seller.

The postage can be track by the supply as the packages travel to clearing centre in China and from the arrival in central clearing centre by the consumer and supplier.

When purchasing international goods, the normally delivery time on the e-Mall sites is 15 days.

The central clearing centres are in specific zeros within major cities. Within these zeros the Chinese Customs offer fast clearing service for imported goods by having the goods pre-registered with Customs. Customs issue you with “yellow” clearing labels for each product line so they can scan each package and record the import against your Custom account.

In this way Custom can quickly track and control the import process and collection of duty and local taxes

Most products in the Chinese e-Mall are the net price to the consumer. Given the processes above the net costs of supplier is straight forward to calculate.

Anyone can send a package to a Chinese consumer form outside and Chinese consumer will often purchase goods from overseas websites.

There will be issues of postage, custom clearance, fees, etc. These are normally paid directly by the Chinese consumer.

The Chinese consumer, we believe, will not be purchasing less from overseas websites as Chinese e-Malls “net pricing” is preferable.

Our recommendation is to talk to your local shipping / postal services companies. Use the Chinese e-Mall process above as your check list.

As new shipping products are available to the market we will update this web page / report with more information.

Our other recommendation is do not store your stock overseas. If the goods do not sell you will have to arrange for the goods to be returned. Often this results in damaged goods and additional time and costs.
