Podcast episode 34 of Amazing FBA had as its guest Global Sources CIO Peter Zapf who generously answered sourcing questions, including one that is likely in every importer’s mind: How to work out a “good” price.

He also named eight steps to ensure product quality, including getting several samples and making an objective QC criteria list.
