Re: Which countries do you buy products from?

Currently, I am buying products from local distributor, however, I am thinking to directly outsource from India and China. I sell tyres. Indian tyres have good market in the country. Chinese tyres are relatively cheap and I also see an opportunity to sell Chinese tyres. The process of procuring goods from international market is very tedious. The law does not allow to directly pay the supplier and obtain goods, we need to first obtain permit and then start the process through bank.

Honestly, I can't remember at all of them right now. To be fair, I would have to make a list to have a better basis... But, I can say that I have certainly bought from many countries (some of them even considered very unusual shopping destinations, by the way :p). I like meeting new places and having new experiences, but always being very cautious when it comes to shopping. :rolleyes:

I'm from the Philippines and for personal items, I usually buy my products online from the USA. But as for resale, we by our products from China, Thailand, Hong Kong, and sometimes Vietnam. The reason why is because usually,those countries have great deals when buying bulk orders. They're not cheap in terms of quality at all as long as you make sure what kind of product you're getting first before you buy it, regardless of how cheap the price is.

Well till now I have never purchased something outside my country as I am pretty satisfied with the prices of the products that I need. I am afraid of the shipping costs and so I just stick to buying everything within my country.

I work for an electronic hardware manufacturing company having interest in electronic components mainly manufactured by China and Korea. But we find Korean quality and prices suitable for our products so we import most of them from South Korea.

We have a place in Manila called Divisoria which is the hub of commerce dominated by Chinese businessmen. The market is complete with all items that you may need from food stuff to hardware products. The price is the cheapest in the country so you can imagine the brisk sales there. I think 99% of the products being sold in that market are made in China no matter what the label is. Even if the label says it is made in Germany, you cannot trust it because more likely it is made in China. As what the Chinese businessmen say, you cannot beat the cheap price of our products.

Personally, I prefer to patronize my own country's products because I'm well aware of how much it means to boost my own country's economy that help boost other countries own. But to some extent, it's very difficult not to patronize products from other countries which are good products as well. So, when it comes to patronizing other countries products, China happens to be one of the country I patronize their products very well.

Often I buy all the products I need in my country, but unfortunately, not everything can always be bought at home. For example, I often order natural caviar online at https://globalseafoods.com/collections/caviar , because in my country I can’t so easily buy natural sturgeon caviar or some other. Therefore, I make such orders, it's very convenient and profitable.

I have recently become less likely to buy caviar, although I really love it. It seems to me that the store began to sell fake, not real caviar. Are you sure that the caviar you order is natural?
