Over 70% of the products from Yiwu District 1 are exported to over 200 countries, including South Korea, U.S.A. and EU. However most local Chinese suppliers and booth owners can speak little to no English, and if you’re a foreign buyer it can be a tough adventure. That’s why getting the help of an Yiwu agent is suggested. An experienced agent can help you get the best deals on top quality wholesale products with their local connections. However many businesses hesitate from using China sourcing agents for fear of unprofessionalism and unethical behavior. We suggest you spend some time and choose an ideal sourcing agent who’s a good fit for your requirements. Don’t know how to do that? This post can help you out.
