You are able to supply products in demand at affordable prices that can be shipped to the BuyersCircle warehouse in either Sydney or Melbourne.
Ideally, you can deliver the products directly to consumers.
What price should I recommend e-Tailers sell the products for?
Price strategy is particularly important to consider for suppliers. The end price to consumer should be lower than RRP and benchmarked against other platforms to ensure the price is competitive.
How do I refer potential e-Tailers to BuyersCircle?
Just like signing up to be a supplier, e-Tailers can sign up to BuyersCircle via this link. You may want to encourage some of your existing retailers to sign up as e-Tailers on BuyersCircle giving them a new sales channel to sell their products.
How can I get more sales as a supplier?
BuyersCircle has over 14,000 e-Tailers and over 650,000 Australian Chinese consumers use the platform. We have big plans to expand into the English-speaking community too. There are a few ways you can drive more sales as a supplier through this unique platform:
Promotional ideas – think about freebies you can offer such as free shipping, low wholesale price to e-Tailers and even buy one get one free on select products
High quality and captivating product content such as exciting descriptions, clear photos, are crucial in not only making it easy for e-Tailers to promote your product on your behalf, but also for more consumers to want to buy
Ensure clear product categorisation in line with BuyersCircle categories
Offer a mix of popular and low-price products to cater to a variety of audiences
How do I know which products were pushed to e-Tailers' stores?
“BuyersCircle Select” on the Chinese language platform currently lists products sourced from suppliers directly to the e-Tailers making it easy for them to keep up to date with new deals and offers they can promote to their community. This feature will be available for the Western, English-speaking community in the future. In the interim, if you don’t speak Chinese you can contact the Supplier Business Development team to find out which products were pushed to e-Tailers.

We recognise each supplier has different payment requirements. We aim to have each supplier on the same payment schedule: payment 30 days after product is delivered to our warehouse in Sydney or Melbourne.
