Sourcing products and services from China

For the last 40 years, China has built up its manufacturing base to be one of the most successful in the world.

In recent years, the growth of the Chinese domestic consumer market has increased imports from overseas of high-quality products. In turn, this has driven up the quality of locally produced products. Today, China is moving towards better quality products.

Lower-quality products are moving to other Asian countries.

The global issues, starting with the virus in early 2020 and continuing today with conflicts around the world, resulted in a rethinking of supply chains. The repatriation of manufacturing back to your country using China's production know-how is an option for consideration.

wechat

WeChat

Calling WeChat an e-Commerce site may upset persist as WeChat defines its self as a “services platform” not specifically a shop or social media.

In the same way you can create your own store inside Tmall, Amazon, etc. you can create a store inside WeChat. There are two main difference:-

  • Each store is individual and the store products are not sold against each other. Therefore it is not e-Mall, i.e. not an on-line department store.
  • Each store is independent and do not share the same service levels, processes and procedures. Their social median customer satisfaction keeps the stores or good trading practices.
