The prices vary depending on the scope of the service requested, the methods used, the type of product, and its quantity, here below 3 common billing methods, to give you a general idea about how much is Yiwu sourcing Agent commission :

-Sourcing agents companies in Yiwu typically charge 3% to 10% depends on the total of the order and also the type of products and extra services may the buyer need when sourcing from Yiwu.

Chapter 7: Why you need a Yiwu Agent?

If you are importing products from China for the first time or even a regular importer, for sure you always want to make your buying process quickly and easily and to make that real, sourcing agency services are made for that.

During our experience, here are the top four benefits of using Yiwu agent services:

1. Help find the best supplier at the best value for money

If you are looking for products, you can easily find thousands of suppliers on many online websites such as Alibaba. However, figuring out which supplier will provide excellent quality at the most reasonable price can be very difficult.


However, buying agents can help you find many factories and suppliers that Alibaba cannot supply.

Their prices are generally the lowest in China. But these factory suppliers do not speak English and therefore can only sell their products to foreign importers through trading companies or purchasing agents.

2. Help monitor production and save time

Maybe you already have a large network and know a lot of good suppliers.

But there is another obstacle in the production process. Since you are located outside of China, it can become difficult to follow up with suppliers and ensure production is on schedule.

In addition, the information provided may also be unreliable. You need to communicate with the factory to exchange detailed information on how to make the product and finish the production on time.

Usually, the total tracking time will be 1-2 months, and some product development projects will be longer. You can delegate these responsibilities to purchase agents, saving you a lot of time to focus on your core business.

3. Help monitor Quality control

The role of the purchasing manager is more like a representative of your company on site. In a way, it will be your eyes and your hands in China. During the production process, the buyer can visit the factory to see if the finished product meets the quality standards and your requirements.


After the goods are ready, the agent can check the quality again, then ship the goods to your country/region. In addition, if there are any quality problems or order differences, the agent can help you negotiate with the factory and make sure the final product exactly matches your order.

The agent can persuade the factory to correct the order or to suggest an alternative solution. If you ask a third-party inspection company, they can only tell you that the inspection result is unqualified.

4. Reduce the risks associated with imports

Excellent purchasing agents have extensive experience in product production, product safety, conformity certification, import and export process rules, and international transportation.

Depending on the product to be purchased, it will tell you which certificate is required to import the product into your country, which shipping method is best, and whether the product has potential patent issues.

Chapter 8:  7 Steps Checklist on How to find the best Sourcing Agent in Yiwu


To help you find the ideal purchasing agent for your business, we have compiled the following useful list:

  • Step 1: Define your needs

The first step is to understand the needs of your purchasing agents and suppliers, as well as the needs of the needs. Writing instructions is very useful for your important documents.

For your buyer, this includes the scope of services, language skills, location, experience level, payment method, etc. You must also clearly define your requirements for the manufacturer: which working conditions prevail, which material type and which quality to use? Usage, how long the delivery time should be, etc.

  • Step 2: Set a budget

In the second step, you need to consider your budget. How many units do you want to produce, how much can you spend on the product, and how much can you pay the buyer? It is best not to set a fixed budget to 100%, but to set a range, because there will always be unforeseen expenditures.

  • Step 3: Choose a buying company

As we saw earlier, there are different types of buying companies. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages. Decide whether you want to work with a single agent, a large sourcing company, or a full-service sourcing and logistics company.

  • Step 4: Find and compare

Now that you know what you need and what type of purchasing agent you want to work with, you can start researching. However, not only Google but also the first result. Instead, use a platform on which you can read different independent reviews of other sellers (such as Sermondo).

Next, pre-select 3-4 buying agents that meet the conditions you set in step 1.

  • Step 5: Obtain different quotations and apply for a commercial license

Now, get quotations from the purchasing agents included in the screening.

The quotation should include the price of each service you want to use, the pricing structure, and how the price is calculated.

Important note: Accompany you to obtain a copy of the preferential business license! Then choose the one that best suits your needs and budget.

  • Step 6: Negotiate payment

After choosing a buyer, you still need to negotiate the payment method with them. Large companies usually have a fixed price structure, but you can usually negotiate better prices with independent agents.

In addition, please specify when ordering whether the price of the purchased service will decrease over time.

  • Step 7: Write down all agreed content

In the last step, you need to write down everything you agree to.

Then, both parties (ie you and the buying company) need to reach an agreement (for example, via email or WeChat). For example, it should be clear who caused poor production quality or delayed delivery.

The payment type and amount should also be recorded and confirmed by both parties. In this way, you will have a document that you can rely on in the event of a problem.
