How to get a ‘good’ price and other sourcing questions answered [podcast]

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.

Peter advised getting multiple quotes from different suppliers then haggling with one that offered the ideal price. He tossed in a caveat, though, reminding importers that squeezing the price could force suppliers to cut corners, affecting quality.

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