"Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs to find a prince..."
I made two sourcing trips to Yiwu this year with different trip organizers, and I must say that Source in Asia really knows how to guide a newbie to get the most out of the trip. The organizers and the mentors were all very accessible for questions and even private counsels. They also did a very good job explaining the unique nature of the Yiwu market so I was able to adjust my expectations to target the right kind of products the market is best at offering.
The biggest advantage Source in Asia gave me was to pair me up with an experienced sourcing agent during the trip. Her knowledge of the market made it possible for me to find all my products in half the time I spent, compared to the first trip. Given the size of the market, it saved me several miles of walking each day! Additionally, she was experienced enough to let me know some of the products I was looking for would be better sourced from other parts of China. Another huge saving of my time and walking!
Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs to find a prince. I am glad I found this group through word of mouth. Great value!
