Instructor Biography

Manuel Becvar, China Expert with over 17 years of experience

My name is Manuel and I was born in Austria in a little town called Melk. For me Asia and its perks always fascinated me since I can remember. I remember watching Bruce Lee & Chinese movies as a kid and was hooked right away. My professional career started in 1998 when I worked for Austria's biggest DIY retailer (bauMax). I moved to Hong Kong in 2005 when I was offered a position as an intern to work for one of the biggest Sourcing Offices in Hong Kong with a staff over 200 people.

For more than 10 years I worked with the biggest retailers in the world on developing, sourcing and finding new products for them.

These retailers included: Metro, Rewe, OBI, Carrefour, Tesco, WalMart, Amazon, Auchan, Lowes, Sears, Homedepot and many others.

As you can imagine the big retailers expect their products to be more than just conform to standards and regulations when they purchase them in Asia. They need to be at the highest standard and quality. These retailers cannot afford to have a product re-call due to quality problems or defective components. These products need to be top-notch.

In those 10 years I got to know all the standards and product requirements there are and additionally gained a lot of experience and insight working with factories in China.

Not just that. I learned a lot about China, its culture & manufacturing. Where & how to find the best suppliers, how to negotiate and communicate with them, how to arrange business travel for my Customers and a lot more.

In the busiest seasons (April & October), I was accompanying up to 30 Buyers within a month to exhibitions, factories and showrooms to help negotiate, develop products and follow up the Buyer's requests after they were gone. I got to know all the tips & tricks you need to return home from your trip successfully.

I now have an Import/Export company based in Hong Kong that you can find under my links.

This course is aimed to make students become a professional Importer in a few days, in what took me over 10 years.

This course will guide you step by step on how to import goods from China.

This course aims to take away all worries & doubt and help you to take a students idea to the next level!

I will cover all aspects there is to importing from China. Be it to start with Alibaba, get to know about importing procedures, dealing with factories, find your products, how to inspect and ship your goods, find out what legal import requirements your products needs to meet up to and a lot more.

When I started my own company in late 2013 my goal was to provide affordable consumer electronics to customers that don't have a Buying office in Asia or customers that do not import by themselves.

In the first few months I felt that many of my new customers are un-educated or unaware about importing procedures and many didn't know the advantages & disadvantages. So instead of explaining everything in detail in every email I decided to make a guideline that they could use every day. What started out as a few pages quickly turned into a book. I wanted to duplicate this success into an online course.

With this course I want to help students having the same success as many others I taught with this course in just a couple of months of hard work. Yes, hard work. Don't let the title of this course fool you. To take your ideas or business a step forward takes a lot of hard work. It is also a great tool for you or your new Employee as a general guide and introduction to import.

There are a few chapters that may or may not apply to you. I recommend going trough them anyway and then decide for yourself to apply these processes or not.

Enjoy!
