    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.
    Regards,

    Provided the certificates are genuine they should pass customs.

    So how would you check the legitimacy of a non-notified body CE Declaration of Conformity?
    Cheers in advance,

    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.

    Regards

    I want to thank you for posting the link to the Proven Amazon Course! Signing up for it is one of the best decisions I have ever made! Your post helped me steer clear of a much more expensive course that was not what I needed. Thank you again.

    I don't push the PAC, but when I see someone needing help to find a niche I do recommend it. The link that I gave you ensures that you get a copy of my book as part of the package.
    Hi Walter, I have been researching for a couple of months and decided I am going to take the plunge and look to source some products within the next few months. I would love if I could pm you some questions, maybe you can see if I am making any mistakes and point me in the right direction. Thanks!

    Hey man. I was referred by a paid mentor of sorts to the username you use in the warriorforum and somehow found you on here instead. I am interested in importing/exporting. Could you pm me if you have the time? I can't figure out how to pm on here. Thanks!

    Awesome, thanks for replying so quickly. I am passionate about life and business, and I would love to learn from you outside of books. If you could email me at jaylonmf@yahoo.com, I would like to give you some more information about who I am and more clarity about what I am asking. Thanks for your time! Hope to hear from you soon through email, even if it is just a short conversation.
    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?
    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.

    What are your thoughts on the startup bros ecommerce video and business plan for importing from China and selling products?

    Also if you don't mind me asking, do you go over the process of product research and finding something possibly profitable in your book as well? 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 yours 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.

    Regards,
    Walter
    Hi Walter,

    Thanks for all your help on this forum and for sharing your knowledge. I am interested in buying your book and was wondering if Import Directly From China is part of PAC now? Is PAC also your book?

    Which one would you recommend? I wanted to send this as a pm but could not find a way to pm you. Would you be able to send me a pm so I can message you in the future? Thanks.
    Hi Walter,

    can you reply to a question !? I need you to send me PM.

    best,

    Yes, I have sent you a PM so you can reply.
    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
    Walter Hay
    Walter Hay
    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?
    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.

    Hey Walter,

    I bought the book, I was reading it then i turned off my computer. When i turn it on, I cant seem to locate it anywhere on my hard drive now. It didn't seem to download the way things typically do, its not in my downloads, and when i run a search i cant find it anywhere. is it possible to get another download? I can prove I bought it with my bank statement if you need it.

    Thanks

    The latest version is now 133 pages, up from 83 pages. If you don't have that one you should have been notified by my support team. If you haven't received a notice it might be because you have not given them your email address.

    I suggest you contact them on msteamwebmaster@gmail.com

    Hi, just want to say thanks for all the fantastic information you have shared here and ask one question about your book if that's ok? I'm in the UK and often find myself skipping whole sections or chapters of business books that deal with US taxes/business entities and other location specific things. How US-specific is the information in your book? Thank you!
    Walter Hay
    Walter Hay
    Hi Trixii,

    It is only slightly US centric, and is used successfully in the UK. One of the countries where my franchise business worked very well was the UK, and I have lived there for long periods.

    Importing is almost universal as far as rules are concerned, and product sourcing principles are the same wherever you are located.

    Regards,'Walter

    Thank you. I bought the book (didn't realise it was on offer!) and have started looking though it. I see that there are several UK specific details so that's great - I look forward to working through the whole thing. Thanks!
    Walter. Love your AMA. Two quick questions. 1. How much $ would you be making in a good year when you were in business? And 2. I just agreed to help out a bitter kola exporter in Nigeria import to the USA, do you know what are the best channels to find buyers? Read your book. Cheers.
    Walter Hay
    Walter Hay
    Hi Cyriex,
    I won't name the figures but when importing and running my franchise business I had numerous franchisees in four countries. They all earned an average of 4 times the national average income for their country, and I received a generous percentage of that as royalty.

    The best channel to find buyers is Alibaba. I don't recommend them for buyers, but they are great for sellers.

    Regards,
    Walter
    Hi Walter,

    I'm really enjoying reading your AMA thread here. As a result, I'm interested in your e-book. This will be my first e-book...silly question: is it possible to print the e-book? I want to do to this so I can read without an electronic device.

    Thanks,

    I am really interested in buying your book. But I am having trouble navigating your site. When I click on the "Buy The eBook Now" link it just sends me to the bottom of the page and I am not to sure what to do. Could it be my browser?
    Walter Hay
    Walter Hay
    Hi,

    You are not the only one. IT is not your browser, it is my brilliant web designer who thinks if it's clear to him it must be clear to everyone.

    Just fill in the General Information next to the BBB rating symbol, and then click on Order Now.

    Hi Walter!
    Thanks for sharing your experiences. It is very empowering. I am trying to validate my business idea and wondering if you can give me some directions. I am a multilingual Executive Assistant. I am wondering if there is a need for small business owners who are doing business with China to hire an EA who is fluent in Mandarin. Thank you so much and if I can help you with anything, please let me know!

    Morning Sir,
    Your Import Direct From China book is there a print version or just ebook, thinking of buying
    Walter Hay
    Walter Hay
    Hello,

    Sorry to say that it is only available as an eBook. The reason is that I revise it regularly, and in eBook form it is easy to then provide the updated version to everyone who has bought earlier editions.

    There is no charge for the updates. The newest one will not be issued for about 2 months.

    Walter

    Yes it is a great resource. Although I have some experience in China, I must say that it helps confirm my suspicion on the 'tactics' employed by suppliers here. I visited an LED manufacturer last year which turns out to be an assembly shop.
    Hi Walter,

    I just finished reading your ebook first time round and will be reading it again later! Great book. I have sent you an email... :) If you can give me some advice, I would be greatful! Thanks
    Hi Walter,

    First of all, I would like to personally thank you for all the help you are providing in your AMA. I have some question to ask you. Do you have an email that you answer personally? I would love to keep them private. Thank you
