One big challenge is payment method which I have offered a lot of help for people buying with RMB since China is the biggest market at the moment.

The truth is that due to the exchange rate, things are generally more expensive on Alibaba and Express, Far cheaper on Taobao and 1688.
However, Tao and 1688 were created for locals to buy and sell to foreigners on Alibaba. But with help, you can still buy from there.

Please can you tutor/mentor me on importation business. I want to engage in business urgently.

I am advising the youths to go into small importation business during this time of recession. It will help them quit channeling all their energy on Blaming Buhari.
The truth is that Nigeria is in a mess. APC just don't want to be honest with the truth.

Yoi can create a free shop on Konga and Jumia, start with something as small as phone batteries.

A boy sent me 15k to buy few phone batteries for him in China, that was his starting capital. Because of his dedication to the small project, I had to leave office and go to the battery Market while it was raining.
Now he is sending 25k and he swore he did not add a kobo outside the initial 15k.

Because of his determination, I will ship his batteries from China for free until he gets to 100k.
So focus more on business section if you are still young, don't go wasting your time with Fashola and Dasuki craps, Ipob, Afonja hatreds, Nothing you say here changes anything if you are nobody.

They are designed for Chinese locals.
The only way is to find a way to get the contacts of the seller and talk to him or her outside the website.

Mr Connection or No connection, you can never take a replica Rolex watch to a Rolex Store in the US and sell it without them spotting its fake, except you took it to a fake rolex store.

And i still maintain my ground, am not buying it. $200 wont give you such a perfect triple A replica


Lmao no mind am, e think say we be maga. Even those triple A Quality Rolex Wil be spotted in a Rolex store, it may take more time but they will surely know

Pardon my Ignorance bro, I read your commentand checked out !688 immediately, the prices seems to be in Yen, and when I did a google search less than 4 naira buys a yen, no I saw a jeans there priced at 55 yen, doing the math for the naira terms, that was ridiculously cheap, or maybe I am missing something. The page didn't translate properly so maybe the minimum one can buy is like 10,000 or something.

how to know a genuine supplier

To get genuine suppliers and not middle men.

Try as much as possible to always use Buying Request as this will help you to cut out the middle men.

For example I have been bringing in a particular product its a custom product and the supplier has been cutting my neck and will not apologise for it.

She will treat me like a piss of shit

She was charging me same product for $2.5 per PCs for 2000pcs.
Mould fee $50
And will still ask me to pay $150 to ship down to my agent.
The worse part is that she will still ask me to go and get another supplier if I think she is not cool.

I got angry and searched for new one

Guess what I found

I found someone after negotiations she agreed that I should pay $0.18

Luckily for me at closing the deal I thought for she to go this low even from our negotiations it shows it could be brought down more

But because I don't like renogotiating when I have already agreed to pay a certain price.

So I contacted another supplier who sent in quotation
And after negotiations he agreed that I pay $0.14 per PCs for 2000pcs
No mould fee
¥46 to ship to my agent

You can see what I was able to archiev using Buying Request

To use it

Make sure you do some settings as this will help you get more good results.
See images once this is done
Go back and seat down and watch the suppliers hunt and beg for you its now left for you to make your choice..

Cheers on this!
Hope it Helps?

Humble me !
