A factory in Nanchang, China
Nowadays, most B2B companies are based in Guangzhou, China.Our company is based in Nanchang –a second-tier city in China – and have yet to build up our popularity and reputation. That doesn’t mean the technology we engage with and the quality of goods and services we offer aren’t as good as the ones you can find in Guangzhou. A big advantage of being located in a second-tier city is the benefit of relatively lower wage rates, which ultimately reduces the total production cost.
The current situation in the wholesale industry
According to research, most B2B (foreign trade) companies nowadays do not operate in factories anymore. Instead, they take and process orders via alibaba.com. Although we all see a rapid growth in China’s economy, the internet and network are not as developed, which is why most companies do not trade via their own website (if they have one). They do business via agents, which are usually foreign trade companies or online platforms (with an average commission fee of RMB29000/year). On top of that, when companies list their products online, they usually have to pay for advertising so their products appear at the top of the search list. It also costs USD1 for PPC (pay-per-clicks), which induces extra costs.
