eBay launched a report known as The Asian Exporters Index that exposed some unimaginable numbers about Chinese language exporters promoting internationally by way of the positioning.

One of many massive stats which stands out to me is the variety of exporters in China making over 1,000,000 {dollars} a yr in gross sales.

“In China, 65 exporters turned over greater than US$1 million, with the biggest recording annual gross sales of over US $14.3 million.”[1]

Not all these thousands and thousands in gross sales from the 2012 report had been made by eBay. Additionally they embody on-line gross sales by related websites like and the businesses’ personal web sites, however the information exhibits how profitable on-line gross sales will be, even in doing worldwide enterprise.

The U.S. Postal Service entered right into a cope with eBay and China Put up final yr to assist Chinese language sellers ship small packages to the U.S. in a a lot shorter time period than common worldwide supply companies. eBay revealed that the settlement has led to 30,000 parcels a day despatched from its sellers in China, with package-tracking included.

Almost 40% of eBay sellers in China are utilizing the ePacket service to ship to the U.S., with over 80% of things delivered in 5 to 10 days.[4]

USPS isn’t alone in providing such companies. Right here at Common Cargo, we’ve got an Categorical4Air service that works equally, delivering smaller packages, as single client items can be, from anyplace on this planet to anyplace on this planet (and it delivers to most locations in 3-5 days).

The world simply appears to maintain shrinking, making it possible for producers to promote straight to shoppers.

There’s nonetheless room so that you can make critical cash importing items from China, or elsewhere all over the world, and promoting it on websites like eBay or Amazon.

Simply because many corporations in China are actually promoting on to shoppers within the U.S., it doesn’t imply that they gained’t additionally promote to you wholesale. And there are nonetheless loads of corporations in China (and Asia usually) who solely promote with that business-to-business mannequin.
