I've managed to purchse a few parts that have come from Hong Kong and the process went smoothly on each transaction.
I think it was a 10,000pc minimum....wire the funds and wait a month or so.
I searched "Alibaba" and a couple of other search sites like that to find the manufacturer I needed and then just emailed them direct.
BUT, most of the time I'm striking out on the inquiries I'm making because the majority of my emails go unanswered.
I'm simply asking for minimum quantity requirements and pricing but more often than not....don't hear back.
Is there a "better way" to purchase offshore parts? Are there US based representatives that have their own web sites etc?
Are there any search sites I'm missing out on?
I've used Alibaba, Chinabusinessworld, Globalsources, Hkexporter.
Any hints or tips on purchasing these parts is appreciated....(Chinese especially...mainland or Hong Kong)......thanks.
