      Hi Walter. First, thank you for all the information you so kindly share. I've learned a lot just reading your posts the last few days.

      I'm interested in learning about importing goods as a business.
      I heard you comment that the PAC includes your book.
      Do you any thoughts on that course? Want to hear your opinion as I'm interested in that too.

      Thank you.

        Hi Gobrian,

        Yes if you buy through my link to PAC it includes my book and I receive some compensation for allowing them to include my book.

        I would not have anything to do with almost every course available about Amazon, but PAC is the exception with its huge success rate and no bad reviews. I will PM you with the link.

        Regards,
        Walter

      @Walter Hay First thank you for your great help in this forum.

      I am an Engineer 40 years old, making a decent salary but has a great desire to start my own business. I am looking for different ways to start this process.

      Need your suggestion:

      - Is it still worth to start selling private label product on amazon?
      - If yes, please recommend any training program .

      Have a fantastic day....
      1. Walter Hay
        Walter Hay
        If done properly, Private Label selling on Amazon can work brilliantly. The program I recommend is Proven Amazon Course which comes with a free copy of my sourcing and importing book. I will send you a link to PAC. The link reward me for allowing PAC to give my book free on PAC.

        Regards,
        Walter

      Hello Walter -- I just read through your entire "Import Direct From China" ebook today. Great information. I'll have to reread many sections. Quick question, we have a product idea that we want to have custom made in China -- do you still recommend Guided Imports? Do you have any additional recommendations no listed in the book? Thanks Walter! Regards, Debbie
      1. Walter Hay
        Walter Hay
        Hello Debbie,
        Yes, Guided Imports can be of great help to you. Custom making products in China is not for the fainthearted and to have someone trustworthy there to help is well worthwhile.
        Regards,
        Walter

      Hi Walter

      Your posts are simply eye-opening. I'm only up to page 5 of your Gold AMA thread. I'll definitely finish it but just can't wait to say thank you! Unbelievably informative. Even more amazing is your helpful and humble tone in these articles. I plan to buy your book but need to clear my plate (like finishing this thread) first. Respect.

        I know that many people outside of the USA are selling on Amazon USA, and it seems that most, if not all, are getting their money through Payoneer. I will PM more details on Payoneer.
        If you need professional help in setting up and running an Amazon USA account, see here:
        https://ko296.isrefer.com/go/pac/whay/ This link also gets you a free copy of my importing book included in the Proven Amazon Course.

      Hi Walter,
      Thank you for your posts on Importing, kept me busy for hours ;)!
      If possible, would love to share my marketing skills for a little of your time :).
      I cant fully explain my situation (character limits) but I have a supplier lined up, with CE FCC documents however I need to know if they are sufficient to claim from customs when I import - are you able to help?
      Look forward to hearing from you.

        Provided the certificates are genuine they should pass customs.

      Hi Walter,

      Have been reading through your thread on Import/Export product sourcing, it has been extremely valuable so far. I am in the process of vetting suppliers and have found one that seems promising, however i have concerns which i would like your opinion on. Would you be able to PM me to discuss these? I only have a couple of short questions.

      Just signed up for your ebook when I saw the BBB seal, and then noticed it leads to a site by Jim Cockrum. What's up there?
      1. Walter Hay
        Walter Hay
        I have an arrangement with Jim Cockrum to have his paid support team handle questions from my book readers.

        Jim came to my rescue when I was being overwhelmed by the volume of inquiries, so I handed over the sales side of things to him. He handles everything for me and for that reason all sales go through him and that is why his BBB rating applies.

Sorry for asking you so many questions I am sure that you are flooded with them and it's a blessing that you just give out so much information here, hopefully I will be able to return the favor one day. Thanks again.

        I don't help with product selection except to show how to find products that are not already being imported into the US, EU etc.

        If you scroll down to the answer I gave member WEDNESDAY you will see a link to a new course that teaches you how to find products that have no competition or maybe a small amount in some cases.

        Hi,

        One of the most important things with this product is to be careful not to buy copies of any of the big brands. make sure your is clearly a different design. A different label is not sufficient.

        Because this is a big selling category and big brands dominate, Customs will check most shipments.

      Hey Walter,

      I'm wondering what the best shipping option is for my order. This is my first larger order, even though it is not very big.

      It is 9 boxes, 32* 34*32cm each, and weighs a total of 180kgs.

      The boxes are waiting in Dongguan city, Guangdong province.

      Should I use a freight forwarder?

      Thanks

        I would recommend http://www.a1worldwidelogistics.com/ The owner posts on the forum as Rsimmons016 and has a couple of threads. He seems very keen for business. He can handle shipments into any US port.

        Is there any difference as to where the FF handles the shipment from my supplier?

        In other words: The FF asked for the address of the goods in China. Should I arrange for the location where the goods currently are, or should I arrange for the goods to be brought to a port? Is there a cost effective option here?
        Apr 30, 2016
      4. Walter Hay
        Walter Hay
        It is usually best to have the forwarder pick up the goods from the factory. This amounts to buying on an EXW basis, although the vendor will often still incorrectly call this FOB.

        Suppliers have a tendency to try to make money out of the inland costs, i.e., the costs involved in getting the goods to the port of shipment, so let you forwarder handle that and you will probably get a fair deal.

    My first job after college was with an international shipping company. I later started my own business manufacturing industrial products and began exporting them to Asia/Pacific countries, including China, in 1978.

    I sold that business in 1987 and began importing, selling B2B. Business boomed and after I had employed all my family I expanded by franchising the business. By the time I retired I had franchises operating in 4 countries.

    Heart surgery forced me to sell that business and retire, but I can't make my brain slow down, so I wrote my eBook on safe sourcing and easy importing. I revise it twice a year and I enjoy teaching through my book the hundreds of entrepreneurs in 35 countries who are now using it.
