Top 10 Import Goods from China with Pics!

  
  
  

While surfing the net--Do people still say that?--While riding the information superhighway--That's better!--for international shipping news, I stumbled across an old thread in which someone asked for suggestions on what to import from China.

The thread was old enough to be of a time when the above interweb phrases would have been hip. If those phrases ever were hip.

Apparently, the thread starter had a friend in China who "offered his services" to allow the thread starter to import goods for selling in the U.S. Those quotation marks make it sound shady. Or dirty.

It seems the thread starter was ready to make money as an international shipper and simply needed to pick a product to import from China. It's nice to have a friend in China with the ability to turn you into an importer of any good you want overnight.

In actuality, if you do import from China or are considering becoming an importer from China, it is a good idea to form an actual relationship with your manufacturer(s) or other business partners there. Taking a trip to China could be very good for your business as well as a culturally enriching experience.

Now that I'm finished with my "go visit China" commercial, I return to that thread. Hey! Those quotation marks didn't sound weird. Maybe it was the phrase "offered his services" that made it sound shady or dirty before.

Anyway, people made all kinds of suggestions for what the thread starter should import from China. The list had things from electronics to drug paraphernalia to hilariously misspelled English-language shirts.

Universal Cargo Management just recently posted a blog on tips for choosing a product to import from China to make money if you're interested. But rather than rehash that blog, the thread made me think our readers may like to know what the top ten U.S. imports from China are.

Unfortunately, those hilarious shirts are not on it. But fortunately, neither is the drug paraphernalia.

Like David Letterman, I give you a top 10 list: The top 10 imports from China.

The source of this list is the U.S.-China Bunsiness Council, counting what China exported to the U.S. in 2011.

With no more delay, here they are...

#10 - Vehicles, excluding railChick in Car

#9 - Iron, steelImported Steel

#8 - Plastics & articles thereofPlastic Articles Imported from China

#7 - Apparel, not knitted or crochetedImported Apparel from China

#6 - Apparel, knitted or crochetedGirl with Present in Knitted Apparel Imported from China

#5 - Footwear & parts thereofShoes for Her Imported from China

#4 - FurnitureImported Couch Businessman

#3 - Toys, games, and sports equipmentToys Imported from China

#2 - Power generation equipmentElectric Power Equipment

#1 - Electrical machinery and equipmentElectrical Equipment

 

Never think you have to import from the top ten list. It's almost always better to import a product you're knowledgeable about and preferably passionate about.

Comments

I am into importing business from China myself and people constantly ask me what they should import. I tell them exactely the same like above. Choose items you are passionate about. In order to be profitable you need to SELL the products. How can you sell anything that you have no connection with? People need to understand that sales, profits and income don't just come from using the latest ebay-analysis tool.
Posted @ Tuesday, March 05, 2013 12:46 AM by Mathew
That is good advice. You won't make any money importing a product if you can't sell it. And it's always better for sales if you're passionate about your product. Thanks for commenting, Matthew.

1. Determine if the products you wish to import have any regulations, restrictions, or licenses for the country you are importing them to. 
 
2. Find a supplier of the products you wish to import. Find 2 or 3 suppliers and see which one matches your needs the best. 
 
3. Find a freight forwarder with experience and that you can trust, like Universal Cargo Management, to assist you with your shipping.

Boa noite, 
 
Gostaria de saber quais são os produto que estão em destaque, e possuam viabilidade de importação para o Brasil. 
Estou buscando um bom fornecedor para desenvolver um trabalho de distribuição dos produtos aqui no Brasil. 
Se caso tiver alguma boa opção, estou aberto a ideias e sugestões. 
 
Atenciosamente: 
 
Elton
Posted @ Wednesday, August 06, 2014 6:26 PM by Elton
Hey Elton, 
 
Whatever Brazilians like to buy and use are the types of products you want to import. 
 
Look around at stores or online shops and see what sells good. Then find a reliable supplier to purchase your goods from. Import them and begin selling. 
 
Thanks.
