Generally speaking, there are some links online for you to check out companies in China. However, there is no English version of above services so far in China, you have to know a little Chinese to check it all by yourself. The best way to check out a supplier in China is to visit them in person or check them out with local government authorities in China. If you don't know Chinese, still you can pre-verify your business partners from following aspects:

1. Contact information. Please note that whether their contact information is right or not, most of the scammers don't offer a right address, telephone and fax number online.

2. Registered corporate number. Every legal company in China has to register itself with Chinese government authorities and obtain a unique company number. If your business partner cannot offer you a unique registered corporate number, definitely he is a scammer, of course, he may submit you a fake number, so you have to check it out with local administrative government organs with the number he offered.

3. Incredibly low prices, especially for international brands. Most of Chinese scammers usually entice foreigners with a very low price. If the price they offered is too low to believe, you may have a further investigation on your partner to know why their prices are so low. Most of the scammers in China profit a lot by selling replicas or fakes of some branded goods to the overseas market, this is very risky because the goods shall be confiscated or detained by Chinese customs houses in case it considered illegal in China. By the way, please remember that the price for authentic /original brands like Sony, Apple, Nokia, Dell etc should be almost the same at anywhere on the globe. You cannot import from the unauthorized brands distributors with cheaper price in China. They must be selling replicas, refurbished ones or copies of brands etc! Please simply forget such suppliers in China!

4. Payment and shipment terms. The scammers never accept L/C as their payment terms, they prefer Western Union, Paypal and T/T etc. Also they never deliver goods through formal channels in China, they prefer to deliver samples by Express like Fedex, TNT, EMS to avoid more examinations from Chinese customs house. Most of the scammers use Private Bank Accounts in China!

5. Warranty and after sale services. Scammers never take some measures to guarantee their quality and after-sale services after your payment, they may promise you a lot before payment. It's lip-services only. Be careful with some of the Chinese suppliers. By the way, it does not mean the manufacturer has the right to sell or buy in case he has obtained a legitimate unique company number from local BIC in China. In China, all the enterprises with the right to import and export has to apply and obtain a certificate called Certificate of Import & Export from Ministry of Commerce of PRC and its authorized local organs in China after their registration at local BIC. Also a formal trade company has to register with Chinese Customs House and its branches before his formal business with foreign counterparts in China. Then he has to register himself with local Bureau of Inspection & Quarantine in case his products are in need of quality control. Without the registration from above local government authorities from China, no company can deal with you in formal channels in China.

You can refer to a third-party consultant company or inspection company to verify the information true or not. By arranging a factory audit before placing your order with your potential supplier, you will know well about their capability.
