More and more merchants, regardless the origin of countries, are sourcing their products from China to sell on Amazon.
Amazon pick, pack, and ship merchants’ orders after they send the products to amazon warehouse. And Amazon, set up the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA),which all the sellers on Amazon should follow strictly, such as weight limit per box, package size, shippment label etc. And Amazon has its own rating system to rate the products sold on its platform. The poor quality products will result in poor rating, and can cause merchant to be kicked out Amazon if the poor quality products rate is over 1%. One important point here is, Amazon does not check the quality of the products to be sold on its platform (from what I was told), merchants need to control the quality on their own. Yet the merchants often have to ship the goods directly to an Amazon warehouse from suppliers/manufacturer warehouse, which means they can’t see the products for themselves in their country.
If many of the products are defective (which may well happen during factory production procedure), there is no mechanism to stop that batch from being shipped to customers. In the short term, customer complaints and returns are costly. But, in the long run, bad rating from dissatisfied users can kill a business in no time.
Most Amazon merchants are small operations and can’t give a big order to a Chinese manufacturer.Not only do they have cash constraints, but they also need to make small bets and test the market. Unfortunately, China is not very small-business-friendly.
If Amazon sellers could not ship the goods to their warehouse to check first before sending them to Amazon warehouse, they should at least do some quality control at suppliers/factories premises before shipment, If they want to avoid complete disasters. And a pre-shipment inspection is most popular in all types of quality control.
