1. Understand the exporter’s company:
When did the company start? What is the background? Do they have any vision?
Do they have the website?
Please understand the content in the company website. Please focus on content and not on beautification of the site.
Do they have any complaints in google? If there are, please cross check with the exporter to know the real facts and understand the case.
2. Exporter’s Presence:
Find out the digital presence of the company. This is very important because a company which is present everywhere in the internet will definitely would have spent more money and willing to expand their business. It is just like participating in one tradeshow.
3. Knowledge, Quality and Source of the Product.
We need to understand whether the company or the concerned person has knowledge on the subject or the product. We also need to probe lot of questions about quality parameters, specifications, importing countries documentation e.tc. Buyer also needs to understand where the crop grows in the exporting country and whether exporter is purchasing directly from farmer or any middle men involved.
4. Pricing of the Product
Here is the most important thing where importer has to focus on. Please be focused on quality and understand the parameters and variety in each and every product. Please set your expectation clear on quality and also ask the exporter that what quality they are offering? There are chances of high probability that Low price quotations fall in bad quality.
5. Video calling Interaction/ Physical Visit:
Most of us prefer E-mail communication but email alone will not know whom are you dealing and how the person is, you need to do video calling to interact with the exporter so that you are clear and also get more information about the product. In this way, you get to understand the person and company better in the way that they talk.
In case you are comfortable with the quality, pricing and payment terms then go ahead and do some verification about the company in local embassy or associations or government bodies or reference checking through relatives or friends or fellow businessmen in that country. Please make sure you come to a conclusion
7. Willingness to help the buyer
While interacting with the exporter, you can understand whether they are real or not and are they willing to help you with more information and have passion to maintain relationship though you have not given the order. Genuine exporters always give right suggestions and right feedbacks even about competitors. They do not feel unsecured and they have a strong belief in their quality and service.
8. Tradeshow Participation:
Please check whether the customer has participated in tradeshow or not. Tradeshow participation will give you authenticity about the company to a certain extent because if an exporter is paying huge money and coming to tradeshow then they want to stand on a long run.
