have a realistic agenda and stick to it. make a list of specific items in order of importance, map out a plan of action and go with the right mindset. spend some time researching the vendors so that you’ll have a clear idea of who you need to see and what you need to learn from them. remember, the devil is in the details.

 2 

know how big the fair really is

the fair grounds are the largest in asia, at a staggering 1.3 kilometers long and span more than 1.2 million square meters of space. wear comfortable shoes and carry a trolley bag. your body will thank you.

 3 

pick your mode of transport

most large hotels provide shuttle buses to and fro. the trick is to take the first bus to the fair so you start the day off early, and leave an hour prior to closing to avoid peak-hour traffic and long queues. if taking the train to hong kong or flights to other cities, book early as they tend to get very full.

 4 

learn the jargon

if a supplier can’t speak a lick of english (very rare), remember that almost all understand the universal language of business. your five buzz words will go a long way: price, minimum order quantity (moq), lead time, quality and payment terms.

 5 

be aware of import regulations

be familiar with quotas, duties, compliance marks, certification and laws on the products that you want to import. many items have specific and mandatory requirements, so be aware before you start ordering.

 6 

come on a full stomach

fill your belly with a protein-rich breakfast so you can avoid the massive lunch queues. sure, there are starbucks, papa john’s, mcdonalds and the like, but rather than walk for ages only to wrestle hundreds of hungry folks for french fries, just stop at the many coffee shops located in each hall for a quick sandwich and coffee.

 7 

print business cards

everyone wants a piece of you, or rather, your name card. print a few hundred but be wary: hand them out only if you truly want to start doing business or you will be added to email databases you don’t want to be on. spam alert!

 8 

expect misleading booth names

it is not unusual to see booth signs that are completely different to the exhibitor’s inside. many companies sell their booth allocation to others desperate to exhibit, so take heed and ask first.

 9 

don’t rely on your memory

in a notebook, staple the suppliers’ name card and take detailed notes of items, prices and other important information you may need. ensure that the supplier does the same so you are on the same page. take photos if they allow and carry an extra phone battery pack.

 10 

negotiate, negotiate, negotiate!

never place orders right away. negotiate prices, ask the right questions and tell the supplier that you will order in due course. don’t be too enthusiastic. why? 

the prices you are quoted first are usually not the best prices, and the best items are usually back at their factories as many as afraid of others ripping off their designs or ag真人官网平台app copyright. 

always visit them if you can, and make a few calls or send emails to clarify your terms first before you place an order. use your wise business intuition: it will get you far.

share with your friends!

money stolen via 

online payment services

some iphone users in china are losing money due to a potential loophole in apple’s login system, according to a security warning from alipay, one of china’s largest mobile payment companies.

alipay said in its weibo blog that it contacted apple and is working to get to the bottom of the breach.

recently, chinese iphone users have complained that their money was stolen through online payment services after their apple accounts were allegedly hacked by cyber attackers. 

 

it’s advised that users who have linked their apple identities to any payment services to lower transaction limits to prevent further losses.

some have lost 

as much as 10,000rmb!

 

similar reports have been circulating on chinese social media platforms with hundreds of people claiming to be the victims of the apple id breach. some even claimed to have lost as much as 10,000 yuan (about 1,440 us dollars).

many users uploaded screenshots of online payment notifications online saying, “i never buy these.”

some victims asked apple for refund but not all got the money back.

while both alipay and wechat have acknowledged the issue, it’s unclear how many users have been affected. but with around 1.5 billion users between the two, quite a few people could be at risk. 

 

the problem appears to arise when users link their apple id to their payment method, though there’s no word on how the apple ids were stolen or by whom.

cause is unknown currently!

 

the company said it had reported the problem to apple and the us tech giant is working to solve it.

“we have contacted apple multiple times and are pushing them to pinpoint the reason behind the theft. apple replied they are actively solving it,” said alipay in its statement.

though alipay can’t find the cause by itself, the company recommended all iphone users to lower the “password-free quota” for mobile payments.

“all payment methods will be affected, including alipay and its rivals,” the warning said.

another possible solution to this problem is enabling two-factor authentication. the system was introduced to apple users in 2014 after many celebrities’ personal photos were leaked online.

alipay deleted the warning on thursday without any explanation. the alleged breach has not impacted android users in any way.

blockchain tech-based electronic b/l will be released

recently, taiping shipping, one of singapore’s largest freight forwarders, is working with technology giant ibm to digitize one of the most important documents in shipping.

the two companies will collaborate in the design and creation of an electronic bill of lading that will be based on the blockchain. in international trade, bills of lading can be used not only as proof of ownership, receipt, and contract of goods but also by banks and other financial institutions in trade finance.

since traditional bills of lading are handled by multiple agencies, there is a risk of loss and fraud. in addition, it must be mailed to the parties, resulting in unnecessary cost.
