Which Version (i.e., Startup) of the Starter Package should I get?

We created the three versions of the Starter Package, with three different buyers in mind:

Package Customer Profile
Core If you rather go the ‘Do It Yourself’ route, this package might be for you. It includes the core content, such as the 4 Part Import Manual, the Shipping, Taxes & Customs Guide and the Document Templates.

In addition, you can also use the Partner Dashboard, to manage payments, book shipments, quality inspections and much more.

Startup This package includes everything in the Core package, but also the Product Regulations Module, and the Sourcing Report features. We are with you, every step of the way.

This is the one stop shop you’ve been looking for.

Business Want everything in Startup Package, but are willing to pay for additional personal support? The Business Package will offer you 3 Sourcing Report tickets.

Also, it gives you access to the discounts offered by our partners.

Can I change from one product to another (i.e., All Categories to Watches)

If you are not satisfied with your order, or for any other reason want to change, we will give you access to another product, without extra cost. All you need to do is to email us.

  • Core to Startup: US$120
  • Startup to Business: US$150

Will I be able to launch a product after applying the process?

The concept of the Starter Package is to guide you step by step, through the sourcing and product development process, to the point where you have a product, that can be legally sold in your market. While there are no guarantees for this outcome, this is the intended result.

Do you guarantee that I will succeed if we follow the manuals and guides in the Starter Package?

No, each product and situation is different. We provide a framework that simplifies a relatively complex procedure, but we don’t offer any insurance or guarantee for success. This also apply product regulations, customs processes and tax rules that can change at any given time. We cannot guarantee that the information is kept up to date in real time. As such, we advice our customers to consult local authorities, and lawyers, in addition to applying the process covered in the Starter Package.

Do I need any previous experience or skills before using the Starter Package?

No. As a beginner, you can rely on the tutorials and task lists to get through the process.

That said, we insist that you request assistance on a very frequent basis to us, if you are an absolute beginner.

We’d hate to see you fail launching a successful product.

What software or equipment do I need to use the Starter Package platform?

All you need is access to a computer, phone or tablet. Everything is managed online, from your account on Chinaimportal.com.

Supplier Check System
Why do I need the Supplier Check System?

The Supplier Check System can help you to categorize suppliers into the following categories:

  • Excellent
  • Qualified
  • Average
  • Not Qualified

The system is tweaked according to the industry. Hence, a supplier that may be classified as Excellent in one industry (or product category) may be only Average in another.

The Supplier Check System shall be used together with the sourcing process explained in the 4 Part Import Manual.

How do I use the system?

The system is based on data entered by the user, which includes, for example, the registered capital and the year of registration. This information can be found for free on various company websites.

In addition, the user is requested to answer a few questions about the supplier, and the information they present.

Based on the answers and information provided by the user, the system then makes a points assessment.

A Supplier Assessment Report is then automatically generated and delivered by email to the customer (the report will be delivered to the email address provided during the purchase of the Starter Package).

How can I access the Supplier Check System?

The Supplier Check System can be accessed by all customers from the ‘My Account’ section on Chinaimportal.com. Thus, you must order a Starter Package and login before it can be used.

Do I have permanent access to the Supplier Check System

At this point, we have no plan to limit the system by either access time or usage.

Can the Supplier Check Reports be saved and stored for future usage?

Yes, the reports are automatically delivered by email.

Payment Methods
Can I pay with my Visa or MasterCard?

Yes, we offer credit card payments through PayPal or Stripe. Customers based in certain countries may be required to create a PayPal account in order to make a Credit Card transaction. This is free and only takes a moment. You just need to add your email address and agree with Paypal Terms of Service. With Stripe, you don’t need to create an account.

Can I pay with PayPal?

Yes, you can pay with your balance, bank account or credit card through PayPal.

Do you offer a safe payment method?

Yes, all payments are processed by PayPal or Stripe, which use an SSL certificate to encrypt your data.
