I am an agent for Indians who mostly import. I have many Clients who are interested in purchasing products in China. Already, I’ve done many projects like hotels, hospitals, apartments etc., with a company in China. I would like to know what is the percentage of payment given to the agents?
You have to be real careful using an Agent as many are hustlers who say they work for you, but really work for the factory. An honest buyer representative will charge between 3 and 10% of PO value depending on order size. QC is an additional fee usually involved for a few 100 USD per day, most small to medium sized order only need 1 day per inspection per order.
Here is a link to pdf that explains how to find the right agent: http://chinasourcinginfo.org/2011/09/20/selecting-service-providers-to-support-china-sourcing-projects/
Let me know how things work out for you.
