In a recent interview with CPC Strategy, Nick Cunningham, founder and President of China 2 West, talked about the challenges of product sourcing. Cunningham told the representatives of CPC Strategy, how China 2 West came into action. “I went to China in 2004 to look at opportunities and while I was there I was asked by lots of friends and associates to source products and visit factories,” said Cunningham. “The demand for this service made me realize there was a business to be created and China2West (C2W) was born. C2W ensures your product sourcing experience is a success.”
When asked about product sourcing, Cunningham told the representative that product sourcing is the search for reliable supplies (components), finished off-the-shelf products and/or private label product development of a concept or idea. He also shared their strategy of discovering new products. “When we research a new product, the first point of call that we always use is our own network. For very peculiar or unique products, we go through the Chinese version of Google, which is called Baidu. The last point of call for us includes sites such as Alibaba, Global Sources and Made-In-China.com.”
During the interview with CPC Strategy, Nick told the representatives about the challenges of product sourcing. “Core challenges include Communication, Culture and Education, Quality, Standards and Delivery Timings, and many more; but the biggest challenge is finding the right supplier.” He told, that the Amazon seller doesn’t bother going to China or manage quality control. “Most people don’t pay attention to it, but visiting factory is extremely important to ensure the quality and the manufacturing process,” said Cunningham.
Cunningham shared details of the factors they consider while selecting a product supplier. During the interview, he also gave advices to sellers who are experiencing problems with their suppliers and gave some expert takeaway tips for product sourcing.
