Sourcing competitor suppliers
I own a webshop in golf apparel and have had some trouble with finding the right suppliers for a new product on alibaba, without spending too much on research & development and shooting arrows hopefully landing on the right supplier I found out the following:
Apperantly all import data in the USA is public so I thought I'd use that to search for my competitors' suppliers, I have checked out this website:
Though the data on this website seems outdated,
Then there are a few subscription based tools that seem to do the same, does anybody know one of these and can you share your experience?
- https://www.importgenius.com/ (starts at 99 a month)
- https://panjiva.com/ (starts at 300 a month)
- https://www.usaimportdata.com/ (seems a bit dodgy and cant find the pricing)
Id be using it to source for one product, though if I purchase a subscription I'd probably use it to source for more products I want to sell in the future..
If you have other sourcing strategies that work well for you feel free to mention!
