Online Trade in China
 

Key words: online trader, reputation, risk, due diligence, background check, investigation, civil, criminal records

Shopping online is convenient and fast. You don’t need to get into and out of each shop or mall to explore your favorite cloth, shoes, etc. The large amount of traders online can make shopping easy and simple – just by a click. You don’t even go out of your house.

There are many popular online traders in China. They provide great convenience to people whose time is too precious to be wasted on the road or budget is limited. You just need to find a reputable shop and select the products that look nice and then check out. Some days later, you will get them in hand. Besides, the price is fairly cheaper than the same goods sold at non-online shops.

But you may take risk purchasing online, especially for those foreign purchasers. Many of them come across a Chinese online trade that looks well decorated and the products are cheap. The company name and address are both written in English and the contact number is a cell phone number. This is an obviously trap for Chinese purchasers, but foreign buyers are much more likely to make deals with it without thinking twice. As a result, they pay for nothing. The sellers always have excuses to make up why you can’t receive your order. The reason why foreign purchasers are easily to get trapped is probably culture differences between seller and buyer.

How to prevent such things happen? Foreign purchaser who wants to buy goods from Chinese online traders on the internet must do investigation before placing orders. You can search its reputation or credit standing through media search, and if there are derogatory comments or complaints against it, don’t cooperate with them. You also have to inquire relevant departments to see if there are civil or criminal records against them. Please remember those normal Chinese online traders always leave their address and a landline on their website.

Therefore, prior to placing order on a Chinese online trader, you have to search its reputation and conduct some investigation on its address and telephone. If you still can’t make sure, do a full due diligence or background check on it, which cost not much and will let your feel safe.
