Hi Singyen

We are a group of Singaporeans living in China and have access to wholesale items over here. If you are keen, you can pm me the products you need and we can help you source. No guarantee though!

China wholesale websites usually requires big amount orders.
So i suggest you should look for some local artist who does great accessories and unique gifts for this occasion.

Would appeal more to s'poreans.

Does it mean that if I want to get things from overseas, I need to go through wholesalers who are at overseas?

Example : China has lots of gifts & crafts. I saw their items online. But their payment mode is T/T or western union. I never use this payment mode b4. How to do the payment?
Some require minimum quantity 5000 pcs but I only want to get small bulk 20 to 50 pcs cos don have so much captial to get 5000 pcs.

Any1 to advise me?
Hi singyen,

I'm a newbie too... What I did was to google for the product I want online. It's pretty useful, I manage to find some supplier in China that takes only small bulk. Good Luck in your googling.

For payment via western union, you just have to go to SingPost & remit e payment. Do note Western Union do charge a transfer fee. http://www.westernunion.com.sg/SingPost.html

Hope I helped

Googling? you mean bargaining online or on the phone? How to bargain with those suppliers in china? Are they very poor attitude?

From my understanding, Western Union is not advisable for oversea payment. The other party may get the money and not shipping goods. And there is limited or no way to track them.

Try to use pay pal which is safer
