E232: How to Source from India with Meghla Bhardwaj of Global SourcesMarch 18, 2019 in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
Meghla Bhardwaj is the Head of Content Marketing at Global Sources and organizer of the Global Sources Summit. The summit is one that I really love, and for this year Dave and I will both be speaking at the event.
Meghla has been on the podcast a couple of times talking about sourcing from China specifically through Global Sources, but this time our topic is different.
Sourcing from India
With the ongoing China trade war and the uncertainty of the future of tariffs for Chinese products, alternative sourcing countries have become more and more popular. One country that’s been getting more attention is India.
Compared with sourcing from China though, there is a void of information about sourcing from India. In this episode Meghla discusses the ins and outs of sourcing from India, more specifically:
- Advantages for Amazon sellers
- Products and categories India excels in
- Quality of the products compared to those made in China
- Payment terms and lead times
- India trade shows
- Navigating India with/without a guide
