Manufacturing in China
« on: July 31, 2012, 10:18:17 AM »
Any body here with experience manufacturing in China,
How do I (if there is any way ) to secure my investment in case they don't deliver , meaning I already dealt with the company they sent me prototypes and they have been in email contact all along, is there any way now tht they want a deposit for manufacturing tht if they don't deliver I should  b able to dispute my charge if I pay through PayPal or any other way

do you know what an escrow is? Look here. Very basic for safekeeping of both buyer and seller interests.

I have a close friend who makes very significant purchases from China every month and he puts the entire thing on his Amex Platinum. One of the shipments was even seized by customs and Amex refunded him every penny.

Plus, he earned millions of MR points.

I never specifically used one in China, but did it in Europe. Just look up a trustee or escrow agent in your area. Your other option would be to agree with the supplier for payment only upon receipt of the bill of lading (as soon as the goods are on the ship). But the most important would be to inspect the goods by you or an independent 3rd party prior to shipment.

Good advice -- but-- even payment on b/l is not 100%, as i know of cartons full of rags instead of product -- no way to be 100%-- need a good agent that u can trust -- but for lets say 5% on small dollar amount -just not workable-- and the agent has no relationship with u-- while he is in the same industry and city  as the mfg and see each other all the time-- maybe break up shpmnt to a few dlvry,till u become comfortable   --

I manufacture an exclusive prooduct in China, and ship it worldwide. I invested a small sum ~$2000 to get a sample. I took a risk and paid via western union. The company/product proved success.

I took the risk.

Today I don't hesitate to send money as I already have a business relationship with the company.

Every investment has risk.

I wish u luck and much success.

I manufacture in China and I pay my supplier with credit card with PayPal and Iím paying a lot of money on PayPal fees
 even when sending to family friends option Iím still Pat a lot on fees

I was thinking if I uploaded on a debit gift card with a credit card and and add it to my paypal account if anyone knows if I will get away with the fees

Dan wrote something about paying taxes with some gift debit card avoiding the fee

 if you have any ideas for me would be greatly appreciated thanks

Many (most?) credit cards code Transerwise as a cash advance, so you'd pay a few % cash advance fee plus interest until you pay, so probably not worth paying with a cc.
