"Made in China" products - Are They Of Low Quality?

04 May, 2016 | Stef

Made In China is a label that usually gets related to low-quality products. However, it is far from that. In reality, with the rise of eCommerce, our access to the Chinese marketplace has been one of the most radical inventions to take place. The birth of Alibaba opened the doors to the Chinese products directly for us, without any subsidiaries or nifty price tags.

Even though people love buying Chinese products online, there are still some misconceptions about the Chinese products - mainly because of their 'low quality'.

So, are all products from Chine of really low quality? We don't think so - and leave that as a misconception. Why?

A Situation Made By The Demand

First and foremost, every economist knows the rule of demand. If there is no demand at all for products with larger price tags, there won't be any point to manufacture them. Therefore, the domestic and regional demand in Asia dictates the products to be low-priced, but is nowhere close to low quality.

Replacing Human Power

Second of all, using valuable equipment to replace human power is usually the main differentiation that diversifies automatic and manual manufacturing - hence the Made In China slogans. Obviously, investing more money in one time capital investment and considering machinery and equipment is a factor that will make the prices go up. Apart from that, human power is not paid the same everywhere in the world - and China's lower income level also goes along the of lower priced products - replacing the automatic manufacture with human-powered one and drastically lowering the prices of the Made In China products.

With these two factors in mind, we can come to a conclusion that the Chinese products are of low price, and not of low quality. However, if you have had a bad experience in purchasing a Chinese product online, it may have been because of the quality of the supplier, unknown information, misleading description etc.

5 Steps To Finding Top-Quality Chinese Products

So, how to make sure you order the best Made In China products only? The answer lies in the following points:

  1. Find a suitable supplier with a great reputation and positive reviews
  2. Clearly define what you are looking for and expecting from the product
  3. Be aware of the pricing terms and the shipping and if applicable, the customs costs
  4. Make sure you get informed about every specification of the product before ordering it and with that avoid any possible troubles
  5. If you are not sure about anything regarding the product, contact the supplier directly


In the end, making your online shopping for Made In China products worthwhile demands special attention from you just as it demands from the supplier/store to carefully list their products. Having in mind the big saturation and diversity of products, it is certainly easy to find the best bargain, see the hottest discount and order a top-quality product from China!
