If you want to get into online retail, you may think about sourcing from China.

You are right to believe that there is enormous opportunity available in China where labor costs keep product pricing very low. But, and you probably know this as well, Chinaís emerging global economy is poorly regulated, which leads to copyright problems and illegal business activities. Add the inherent communication problems, cultural differences and importation issues, and trade with China becomes a pretty complicated undertaking.

Fortunately, many online entrepreneurs have been pioneering this pathway and their experience provides a good deal of guidance on how to work with Chinese companies successfully.

As many traders point out, there are very reputable and trustworthy people who work hard to make quality products and want to do business with you over the long term. The legitimate factories are often far less web savvy and simply donít have the wherewithal to make connections with buyers.

Most traders recommend using a China Shopping Agent or China Purchase Agent.
