I think if you want to get a reliable supplier for large amount and long time cooperation, it's better to China to have a look and comparsion.

The point is find you a reliable supplier , rather than being scammed or getting poor quality.also I think you'd like deal direct with the manufacturer rather than a middleman. let me tell you something about China: most of the suppliers you meet online or at the trade fairs are trade companies, agents, middlemen or even scammers etc. In China, different products has their manufacturing bases in different cities. like shoes & garments factories are most located in Putian city Fujian province; leather product factories are gather round Guangdong province, and my hometown Liuyang city is the home of firework. plywood's bases are in Shandong province etc.

Since you can't come to China for a visit, the best way is get you a sourcing agent, soucing the suplier in China,in the meantime, verifying the supplier for you.
you can find me on skype : stin002, for more suggestion.
You can find many B2C or C2C site searching by google.

That's ture you can search many b2b sites online. there's another problem, how to assure if the supplier is legitimacy. during our working experience, we have met many victims of being scammed by chinese supplier. sometimes even some paid member of B2B sites turned out to be scammer.
And it's always suggested to check your supplier before payment. apply a third party work on behalf of you, contact the local officials for confirmation, stop you from scammer. reduce your businss risk in China.

Hi everyone,

Stating that most of the companies attending Trade Shows and having a website on Alibaba are trading companies is inaccurate.

The first thing you can do is check out the "Company" page on each supplier's Alibaba website and see if they call themselves "Manufacturer" or "Trading Company".
The second thing you can do is open a chat window and ask (politely) if they indeed are what they say they are, and ask them to confirm. You can also request that they provide you with their registration files and pictures of the premises.

Hope this helps.

Steven

I know this may be an old thread, but if you want to find reliable Chinese suppliers I'd recommend these based on our experience:

Visit their trade shows/trade fairs in China:

The best way to get a real look at the product and the supplier would be to pay them a visit. It will would be better for you negotiate face to face as well. Popular trade fairs in China are:

- The Canton Fair
- The East China Fair
- The International Consumer Electronics Show
(Trade fair is in the U.S but with many Chinese suppliers)

Outsourcing Agency:

pay for someone dedicated to sourcing supplier for you, here are some reputable ones (not affiliated fyi):
- 80/20 Sourcing
- Import Dojo
- Easy Imex


Online Supplier Directories
They provide you a well-researched database of suppliers to choose from, just pay a nominal fee. Some popular supplier directories are:

- SaleHoo (disclaimer: this is our site)
- Doba
- Worldwidebrands

Chinese Online Marketplaces:
- Alibaba
- Aliexpress

Note that these are just suggestion, you should do your own research. If you want a detailed look at how to find reliable suppliers from China, you can check out this guide:

Best of luck!
