Chinese sellers are taking over the world, here is what you can do about it

3 things experts say you should start doing today

We know the land of manufacturing is in Mainland China. For decades we have studied how to source products from manufacturers and improve the quality and supply chain of our product brands.

The Chinese manufacturer has been learning at the same time. And they have grown on the Amazon marketplace as well as other global markets by astronomical numbers over the years. We are talking hyper growth now. Sellers from around the world can agree the Chinese seller building global brands and selling direct to consumer (we call it F2C - factory to consumer) is a reality.

What Can an International Seller Do about it?

So, if you’re an Amazon seller now, you may be wondering - what can I do about it?

You can get upset about it and hide under a rock. Get defensive and hope that things go back to the way they were - a time when Chinese manufacturers and e-commerce business owners had no idea on how to list their products on Amazon.

But the times have changed. And you can no longer wait and pray.

1. Understand the Chinese Seller Landscape

Instead of fearing the unknown, why not master the unknown. Embrace the Chinese Amazon FBA seller, learn from them, network with them, and make a deal with them.

We have the biggest friction when we talk “us vs them”. And the current market is in that exact situation - the “Chinese” vs “the rest of the world” fighting for the top ranking in Amazon FBA.

It has come to a point where these Chinese Amazon sellers have mastered certain processes in the marketplace more than overseas sellers. News and knowledge are now

originating from the Chinese seller community, and overflowing into the overseas seller community.

2. Stay Ahead of the Game - and Learn from Chinese Sellers

So what are we suggesting here? Stay ahead of the trend, and build your relationship with the Chinese Amazon seller.

They are looking for overseas business owners to partner with and make distribution deals with. Why not with you? If you’re an experienced Amazon FBA seller from the overseas market, you are a perfect candidate to make a strategic business deal.

These things cannot be done online through a Facebook group - they must be built over offline, face to face meetings. And not a one-time meeting and a deal is signed, but a spark to a relationship, a spark to a connection.

3. Understanding the E-commerce Environment: Sellers, Suppliers, and Marketplaces

Digging deeper into the landscape, you need to understand something- many Chinese sellers are not the suppliers. They are sellers like you. They find the product opportunities and contact the factories to resell the goods.

There are still huge opportunities to make deals with Chinese manufacturers on joint venture brands and distribution. The Chinese manufacturer, as well as the Amazon marketplace, want to have direct distribution models. So by you sitting back in America feeling the growing Chinese sellers are factory direct- you are often mistaken.

They are also in the middle. So you have a unique opportunity to attend a conference where there are manufacturers and suppliers who need help from international sellers and distributors.
