BIBI LED is one of the most professional/ Experienced/ Hardworking LED Display suppliers in China.

Tip 1

Arrange a flight ticket to visit China to see by your own eyes — not just beautiful pictures and videos.

Visit China at least four times a year in the first three years if you want to find the real right long-term partners and suppliers. It seems high cost, but actually, it saves a lot in the future for your company – Lower purchasing price, better quality, better communication, more satisfied customers.

During in these three years, you will see almost 50-100 difference products and suppliers and will understand how to compare the price, function, original material, and the way how to talk with the Chinese suppliers.

And most importantly. It is easy to hire a staff to focus on taking the photos and videos in China, and they might be a one-person public office, ten people company or 100 people corporation.

So, you do not know “who they are,” “what quality they offer,” it is dangerous for your company reputation and yourself. You might be a VIP guest to the court if you are choosing the wrong suppliers.

Tip 2

Make a live video call to see the machines, products, workers and the one who you are talking. Work with the real company.

If you do not have time to visit China

If this order is so urgent

If it is hard to get the visa

If you feel comfortable to communicate with this salesman

If this is your new supplier

Make a list of what you want to see by live video call. It is a responsible way you do for your company reputation, your customers, your boss and yourself.

Tip 3

Talk/meet with their old (At least two years) customers face to face or by the call. The case study pictures/videos don’t mean anything. 

When you ask the project references, you might receive the beautiful pictures/videos or the news/blog about that project. It seems a very trusted way and looks comfortable.

But this could be wrong!

The right ways

– See the project in local by yourself.

– Make a call with their old customers – at least work with them for two years.

– Meet their old customers – at least work with them for two years.

MZW is an auto parts manufacturing company that offers a turnkey solution for diversified auto parts needs. We make it easier for all customers – from start-ups like self-owned repair shop to tire 1&2 automotive companies –to sourcing high-quality auto parts.

Tip 1

Be Expert by Study Product Manufacturing and Production Standard

Most Chinese products have corresponding production standards(Chinese National Standards (GB, GB/T, GB/Z) and Industry Standards) and the standard books are issued by the Chinese government, which means it’s professional and authoritative.
The standard books have a lot of knowledge about product manufacturing, such as product specifications, materials, dimensions, and environmental protection requirements, as well as test methods. If you have just entered the industry, you should try to obtain the product production standards and increase your expertise, which can help you find the good Chinese suppliers

Tip 2

It’s better looking for a trading company if you have low quantity or diversity product needs.

The manufacturers do not like low quantity order, due to their materials/parts supplier also have the MOQ policy for them. It would waste a lot of time if you want to make an order that does not meet the factory MOQ.
So if your quantity is low or you need multiple products, stop wasting time to bargain with the manufacturer directly. Ask for help from a professional trading company.

Tip 3

It’s not a good sign when you get a super low price (Lower average 20%)

Some potential suppliers will offer a price that is much lower than average. That’s because they want to get your first order. And it’s VERY LIKELY, they will use tricks to increase the price after you send the deposit for the first order. You can guess what is going to happen then.

Keep this in mind, there is no free meal in the world, you get what you paid for. The low price means higher profit on your side, but the super low price means super high risk.

Require more industry related certificates, at least ISO 9001 management certificate

A company with ISO 9001, at least they pay attention to enterprise management, improve production efficiency, management efficiency and so on. The related industries certificates represents the strength of this company. The institution that issued the certificate is equivalent to helping you to go to the compnay to check whether they are trading companies or factories. The more certificates, the more institutions help you to review. Then you can also trust they are at least a qualified company.

Tip 2

If the supplier can visible chat with you, show you their company. It will be great.

This is a very good way to check whether it is a factory or a trading company. If it is a factory, you can review their production equipment, warehouses, workers, etc;

If it is a trading company, you can see the working environment of their company in a video call, and you can know a lot through observation.

Tip 3

Try to get more suppliers’ case with TOP 500

The requirements of the world’s top 500 products are generally high. If there are many experiences with the world’s top 500, this company has a strong SUPPORT ability and ability to deal with problems. Of course, the products are also very good.

Lunarides amusement rides manufacturer founded in 1998 and located in XingYang China, focus on design and production of amusement equipment with small and medium-size, especially on trackless train rides.

Lunarides has more than 10 years experiences on the supply chain optimization and keeps close relationships with supply systems.

Tip 1

At first, You must understand what kind of supplier you need.

The Chinese government requires most of the supplier to be qualified, especially for the large amusement rides. Most of the suppliers located in Beijing, Guangzhou, Chengdu. (But some suppliers located in Wuhan, Baoding, Henan just not as much as in Beijing Guangzhou, Chengdu). These suppliers have their own advantages and disadvantages.

The supplier located in Beijing and Guangzhou were commended by most of the buyers, The amusement rides provided by these suppliers are high quality but high cost.

May some buyers will ask, is there any supplier with a good price? Yes. mainly located in Henan, but just a reminder that please visit the factory before you decide to choose the supplier.

Of course, each production base has a leading enterprise in this industry, and the quality is excellent, but it is not necessarily suitable for everyone.

It is worth noting, except large amusement rides

The quality problems we often say are mainly reflected in the exquisite and beautiful appearance of FRP, and the quality of the mechanical structure and parts and materials are basically the same.

Tip 2

Seeing is believing. but now is a multimedia age. We can see things via photo or video.

When you communicate with the supplier who is just blindly boasting about the factory area, please request the evidence to prove this. Such as the photos of the production line or video.

Otherwise, a stable supplier is the most valuable, it is a guarantee of quality and safety.

The most important thing is the skill level of the engineer.

Tip 3

Even if you are willing to bear the consequences, do not follow the lowest prices

If you want to buy a brand new rides, but are worried about buying used one.

It is hard to identify that only see the outlook.

Here are two tips for identification

1)Check the corner of the steel structure

Under normal circumstances, the polishing piece on the sender cannot be polished to the corner. The paint can only be sprayed on the surface of the corner rust. It will shake off if it is slightly vibrated or hitting the rust.

2)FRP can not just look at the appearance, you need to look inside.

The new FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics)  is clear and transparent, and the old one will be turning black as time goes on. It is easy to identify.

And one more thing.

The price of used products can really be very low. Some of the suppliers may assemble the equipment with used accessories to keep the lowest price. So please respect the price if you need the high quality.

If you often purchase on Alibaba, you may understand this situation.

The most effective way to find suppliers of Chinese amusement rides is to find them on China’s Local Amusement Rides Exhibition. In addition,  go to the amusement equipment production zone. See above location

The most popular exhibitions are usually held in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou.

Tip 1

 The supplier should be Reliable

This is the most important thing because you are doing business with real people. Although others such as PRICE, QUALITY, DELIVERY, PAYMENT TERMS….. are also the main factors. Without this, you will see how many headaches the Chinese may bring you. Some even can play many games and fool you in many ways.

They may attract you at the beginning with super lowest prices then set up with a lot of traps so that you will go deeper and deeper. Many clients complained to me afterward: “That guy kept grabbing my feet and I feel quite passive……”
I am not saying that low prices are not good always, but just you need more time to judge whether the person who deal with is reliable or not.

Tip 2

Responsible and react at once

In case there is any problem, the supplier should be responsible for the after-sales services instead of kicking the ball to another.

Speed of reacting when problems happen should be taken into considerations too. There are so many, not only many, can say above 90% people, when they asking order and money response is fast. However, when problems caused, they pretend to disappear or ignore and lots of delay.
Of course, this is not unilateral but also depends on the cooperation between you and the manufacturer. How much support you give to the suppliers. Business always pays attention to a win-win situation. Anyone who just wants a single benefit will not last long.

Tip 3


To help you solve the problems instead of creating lots of headache and trouble for you. Could give you useful suggestions even good business ideas, bring you extra value.

How can you know the machine can meet your requirement, the answer is “factory and product inspection” , hire a third-party inspector is hired to audit the factory may be the best choice for you. it won’t charge you too much money (nearly 200 dollars per day) and they will find the details and issues you may miss yourself and the supplier did’t tell.
