Q: Please tell me what kind of products have the potential to become great hits in my country.
A: Before considering any additional values that will come with the goods, there are yet two more things to be considered: （1）The goods are considered “rare” or are “difficult to acquire” in your country. （2）The goods could be purchased with a competitive price, and sold at a higher price in your country. When it comes to the definition of a suitable product to sell, it really depends on your point of view as you are the expert with the professional understanding and knowledge in the area. Thus, we suggest that it is better to start your research in your specialty fields to find the specific goods you want to import or export. However, food, raw materials and beverages are sometimes hard to be imported and exported due to regulations in different countries and regional areas. In some cases, you might need to fill in extra customs forms and even submit samples to government bodies beforehand. Before importing commodities into your designated country, please take your time and check the regulations and customs information.
Q: What are your adopted methods for purchasing?
A: （1）We could purchase goods that are available on the Internet (Yahoo, Taobao, PChome, etc.). （2）We could purchase goods that are sold in physical shops. （3）We could purchase goods that are available directly from factories.
