For the last couple decades, China has become the hottest destination of sourcing. As a buyer, you definitely have to know about your products, know general rules, but that’s not enough, if you want to source in China. In my opinion, such things are important: 1. Business rules in China; 2. Due diligence; 3. IP protection. Rule No. 1 is: CHECK YOUR SUPPLIER’S BUSINESS LICENSE. In China, Business License is like ID card or passport of an individual, it’s certificate of identity.
