    Why is it worth importing products from China?

    In recent years, China has taken a leading position in global consumer goods production.

    For an enterprising business owner, the opportunity to buy and resell Chinese manufactured goods can provide excellent returns.

    According to the latest data, approximately US$216.7 billion worth of Chinese products were exported worldwide in February 2023.

    Affordability is a key factor when importing products or manufacturing materials made in China, but research is essential before embarking on this strategy.

    Importing from China can be a complex process and requires planning and relationship building. Failure to adhere to the plan can lead to delays, missed deadlines, and lost profits.

    Here are 7 steps you can take before importing goods from China:

    1. Step 1: Select the products to import.

    Check the profitability of your preferred product and make sure there is a market for it. Calculate the cost of purchasing compared to the price at which you can reasonably sell. Be sure to do your due diligence to find out what you are allowed to import. Please remember that many items are subject to restrictions; be careful to avoid this.

    1. Step 2: Find a supplier.

    Once you have decided on the product, make a list of Chinese suppliers who can supply you with this product.

    1. Step 3: Inspect the product.

    When you find a supplier, ask them for product samples and information about manufacturing plants. You can ask your supplier/manufacturer to audit the products you have chosen.

    1. Step 4 – Classification and calculation.

    Now that you have a product, the next step is to classify it according to the HS. Using the product code, you can calculate the import duty rate.

    1. Step 5 – Delivery of the order.

    Each company has its own minimum order. Most companies in China will require an order of at least 10,000 units. You can order either a full container load (FLC), which uses the entire shipping container, or a less than container load (LCL), which shares the space with other shipments. Also keep in mind that it will take a day or two for the shipment to arrive with factory to the port, and a couple more days for normal customs procedures.

    1. Step 6 – Prepare for and expect shipping.

    You can make this process much easier by hiring a customs broker. This professional will complete and file the necessary paperwork, estimate costs, review regulations, and otherwise smooth the process.

    You will also need to provide initial import documents:

    When your order arrives, be prepared to pay import duties and arrange for pickup and transportation of your product.

    1. Step 7: Make payment to China.

    The best products to import from China

    Some of the most profitable items to import from China include clothing, electronics, and household goods. These products are in great demand, and their choice is quite large. However, importing these products can be expensive, so it is important to do your research before purchasing.

    Other products that can be imported from China include toys and jewelry. During the holiday season, toys are always in high demand, and jewelry is popular as gifts. However, these products are not as popular as clothing and electronics, so finding good suppliers can be the basis.

    Finally, some of the most undesirable items to import from China are furniture and home decor. These items are expensive to ship because they are bulky, so it is often better to purchase these items domestically for your benefit.

    When looking for a new supplier, it is important to be sure to vet them to avoid scams and get the best product for your business. It is also important to understand how products are delivered from China to your country. A good way to do this is to visit the freight forwarder before placing an order with the supplier.

    To reduce import costs, import products in large quantities. You should also be aware of any potential tariffs that may apply to the goods you import. Some products have high profit margins and some have low profit margins, so it’s important to find the right balance.

    Whatever products you import, it is important to have good suppliers and take care of logistics to ensure that the products arrive safely and on time!

    Import and delivery of toys from China

    Want to get into the toy business and capitalize on the growing popularity of toys, but don’t know where to start? We’ve created a detailed guide to help you get started. We will help you decide which countries and which toys to import. We will also help you find a suitable supplier from China and choose the appropriate delivery method.

    Where should I import toys?

    Some countries and regions spend more on toys than others. Therefore, it makes sense to import more toys into regions where the toy market is growing rapidly. Countries with the highest annual spending on toys per child include:

    Great Britain; $438 per child

    United States; $371 per child

    France; US$358 per child

    Germany; US$336 per child

    Russia; US$300 per child

    Italy; US$187 per child

    Spain; $176 per child.

    Why is it worth importing toys from China rather than from other countries?

    China is the world’s leading manufacturer and exporter of toys. More than 50% of the world’s toy supply comes from China. This means that China has the largest variety of toys than any other country in the world, so you can find any toy you need there. This eliminates the need to coordinate the export of multiple products from different countries. With the availability of Chinese suppliers and shipping methods, all toy deliveries can be easily accomplished. In short, with Enhofchina you can import toys from China very easily.

    Can I import toys from China?

    Yes. China exports a huge number of toys to different countries every year. Whether you are shipping toys to the US, Europe, other Asian countries or any other part of the world, you can import toys from China there.

    Is it safe to buy toys wholesale from China?

    When looking for a Chinese toy supplier, you should double check their safety certifications and always be sure that you are buying a quality product. Choosing the right manufacturer and suppliers in advance will save you a lot of time and effort.

    Before purchasing toys from your supplier, check the toy restrictions in the country you plan to import the toys into. For example, all toys imported into the European Union (EU) must comply with the EU Toy Safety Directive and have a CE mark on the product confirming its safety.

    When choosing a supplier, tell him which country you plan to import your product into. A knowledgeable supplier will be familiar with these safety regulations and will work with you to ensure the products they sell are available.

    We can take on the entire burden of finding and vetting a supplier if you need it.

    What toys can be imported from China?

    You can import almost any kind of toys from China. To give you an idea of your options, let’s get started:

    Toy cars

    They are inexpensive and small, making them easy to transport. They are also top sellers.

    Educational toys

    Stock a wide selection of educational toys for all ages to position your business as a one-stop shop for educational toys. This will keep customers coming back again and again.

    Manga style toys

    These could be action figures, figurines, plush toys, etc. Be sure to have a selection of toys inspired by today’s most popular anime and manga.

    Kids toys.

    When looking for a supplier of children’s toys, you need to double check that the toys meet all regulatory requirements. Children’s products tend to come with a lot of regulations, and parents check them carefully when purchasing them.

    Science and STEM toys

    Science and STEM products for kids are more popular than ever. Again, have a wide selection of science and STEM toys suitable for a variety of ages.

    Wooden Toys

    When choosing a supplier, check the quality of workmanship. Make sure all toys are thoroughly sanded to prevent customers from complaining about splinters. If toys are painted, ensure that the paint is durable and meets all applicable regulations.

    Electronic toys

    High-tech electronic toys are modern and interesting for children. Parents often buy different toys for boys and girls, so choose toys of different colors and styles to suit each child’s preferences.

    Plush Toys.

    Plush toys are still very popular among children. Have a wide selection of characters, animals, sizes and colors. Look for suppliers with high quality products. Low quality plush toys don’t sell well.

    What are the import taxes on toys?

    Import taxes vary depending on the country and the specific type of toy. Before you ship your item, make sure you are familiar with the import tax for the specific type of product and the policies of the country you are importing into.

    If you don’t know where to start, Enhofchina will help you. We have connections with many local suppliers and can help you find the right option for your needs.

    How to deliver toys from China

    Once you have decided which toys to ship and have found a supplier, you will need a reliable shipping agent. Most toys can be shipped by express, rail, air or sea. Which option is right for you depends on your product and your company’s needs. We can help you determine what’s right for you. After placing a purchase order with a toy supplier, you will have a Packing List in hand with your other shipping requirements, such as delivery time, shipping cost budget. Enhofchina will create the most suitable shipping quote for each of your items.

    What is the cheapest shipping method for shipping toys from China?

    Ocean shipping is generally the cheapest way to ship toys overseas. Talk to your freight forwarder to make sure this is the cheapest option for you and that it suits your needs. But the delivery time will be longer than with express delivery, rail transportation and air cargo transportation. Therefore, if the shipping time by sea transport suits your needs, then it will be a good way to deliver your toys.

    How can I find a reliable freight carrier in China?

    There are many freight forwarders in China, but there is no need to waste time comparing them. Contact Enhofchina instead. As a Chinese company with experience in shipping all types of cargo around the world, we can provide you with the knowledge and support you need to deliver all your toys.

    What documents do I need to ship toys from China?

    Customs paperwork varies depending on what toys you’re shipping and what country you’re exporting to. However, most shipments from China require the following documents:

    International supply contract

    Bill of lading

    Commercial Invoice

    Packing list

    Proforma invoice

    Certificate of origin

    CITES permit

    Import/export declaration

    Which is cheaper shipping from China or container by sea from China?

    There was an interesting question: What is cheaper cargo shipping from China or shipping by container by sea?


    The question is not quite correct.

    Now I will explain why.

    What batches take cargo delivery from China?

    Through the cargo take most often small batches.

    Or those goods that can not be brought in white.

    These include branded goods that can not be exported from China without the permission of the copyright holder.

    Or dangerous goods, which most often are not accepted in the assembly.

    Once again, I would like to remind you that cargo shipping from China is illegal transportation.

    If someone takes his goods from China through cargo, he risks to be left without goods and get in trouble with the law.

    I want to draw your attention to another risk of cargo transportation from China:

    The risk of not receiving a shipment sent via cargos

    Besides the fact that a car with smuggled goods can be arrested at the border, it can literally burn up.

    Why are some shipments classified as dangerous goods?

    Because due to their physical properties, they can be destroyed in transit and damage other goods, as well as harm people and the environment.

    These include flammable goods. Lighters, perfume, some cosmetics on flammable liquids, paints, varnishes, etc.

    There are also self-flammable goods, such as batteries.

    Not in vain on each type of transport there are rules of transportation of dangerous goods.

    For example, when transporting dangerous goods by motor vehicles, they specify that the driver must have a license, i.e. pass a special training course.
