INVENI is t he premier China-Direct sourcing and custom manufacturing firm in the Caribbean. Our full-service sourcing solutions were designed to help businesses overcome the challenges and complexities of doing business in China. 

When INVENI was formed in 2012,  we identified a major stumbling block that companies would face when sourcing / importing from China. This pertains to  finding the right supplier. Is the supplier legitimate, can he be trusted, is his business internationally certified and does he operate with export licenses?

Helpful Tips on Doing Business in China

China, referred to as  "the factory of the world" , attracts millions of interested buyers every year to its shores for purchase of its manufactured goods  but do you know there are basic requirements to meet before sourcing from China?

Checklist before you source from China:
  1. Purchase large volumes at a time
    All Chinese manufacturers have a minimum order quantity (MOQ) which buyers must meet in order to do business with them.

  2. Order months in advance and wait for arrival
    Ensure you have sufficient capital upfront to make a down payment on an order. Give your supplier sufficient time for production and shipping.

  3. Qualify suppliers
    Allow ample time to find and verify suppliers who can meet your specifications and expose red flags prior to engaging in business negotiations.

  4. Conduct Quality Control
    Hire a sourcing agency with specialists on the ground in China to provide quality inspections for your goods at each stage: during production, pre-shipment and container loading. Any errors in your order received cannot be refunded or returned to China for a production re-run.
