Can i owned some leather stuff since canton is major city for exporting leather product and so forth?

"Oh my god! That's Prada!" "Honey! That's LV!" "Damn! That's Gucci!" 

So surprise to see so many duplicate in this market especially export worldwide. First impression in this place feels like u r in Africa since a lot of african hanging around this place for purchasing. This place is famous of leather stuff from shoes, boots,bags, belts, wallet, purse, name card holder, watch stripes, laptop holder and bla bla bla...............whatever u want, name it or if u really can't get, make it with placing order.

I would say, most of the boots u saw in Europe and US is origin from here. If the price in ur place is US$ 150, here is RMB150. How would u feel with ur boot right now? 

"No! It cant' be, there must be something else different so that the price will be so much different!"

Yes u r absolutely right. Things different between ur boots and those laying here is BRAND. U can't see any brand on these boots but famous brand in ur place. 

Besides, i would recommend u to have a look on bags which will give u another kind of impact especially those branded name like LV, CK, GUCCI, FENDI, BURBERRY, MONT BLANC and so forth. This time, i would say the quality is totally different from the original but appearance doesn't make suspicious eyes.

I strongly suggest u to purchase in mass quantity cos they will give away much discount if u tell them this is for "sample" purpose since that place is whole sale market. It really worth and present these bags or luggage as christmas gift may polish ur face another round, why not?

Price between 1-5 are almost same. But once u purchase more than 10, it could be very much different.

"How much different?"

50% or more. 

U'll have to train up ur real bargaining power from Beijing Road, Shang Xia Jiu Lu and so many places i've introduced earlier since u r negotiating with the real "boss" in games. Thing does come slowly and slowly don't u think so?

Bargain with vendor, another vendor, another vendor and another vendor.... Once get expert, now is the time for "Negotiating" with the real player in supply chain.

"How to negotiate?"

** Tips **
Do s
1) U have to pretend like a mass purchaser looking for supply, ur face. Be cool.

2) Ask them to quote u the price accordingly after selected (as much as u can for single patern,single quantity).

**They will give u quotation after so many clicks with their calculator...In fact, they always got figure in their mind, just to pretend they are serious about ur quotation.**

3) After heard their quotation, tell them how serious u r in this business, u want to take sample back ur country and this and that, just bluff and ask for 50% discount.

4) They will give u the longest "no" u ever heard on earth.

"Nooooooooooooooooooooo................................." so much reasons after no. Just ignore it.

5) Tell them the market scenario (just to freak them out that u know this market 'quite' well.) "If purchase more than 10 pcs, the price should be like the price want. Don't give a damn shit.

6) Another longest "no" u ever heard........

7) Increase some quantity to round figure ie:10, 15, 20, 25, 30 ........... Repeat step 5 again with further reduce in price (more than 50%).

8) The logic is simple, increase the quantity or step down a little bit on price but still around 50% of previous. Finally u will get the deal sealed.

Don't s
1) Act like shopper as so many chinese do, "Honey, this bag suit me not?" "Is this pretty?" "This looks so cheap, i love it!" The price quoted will shoot up high after ur acting. 

"Don't believe?" 

"Better believe it."

2) Never choose much quantity for single pattern before quotation. That make u looks like a shopper.

3) Never agree their price at first place even though u gut feels that already cheap enough. If can get more, y not?

Alright i believe u have the basic idea in mind, so just practise it. Don't u ever heard of "Practise makes perfect?" That's right. U gotta practise it, else u will end up with negotiation when shaking ur hand.

How to get there?
Option A:
Take Green line (line 2) up to the terminal, "San Yuan Li" station. (三元里地铁站)Please read the board before step out of the station since there are more than 20 blocks of building around the station, everyone selling same stuff, leather product. So u can choose which one first.
