Backgrounding your supplier
Checking a supplier’s background is necessary but it can be difficult to do, as there are many short-lived traders or manufacturers who accept an order without the resources to make a timely delivery. The threat of being taken to court or looming bankruptcy is sometimes dealt with by simply closing shop without leaving a forwarding address.
Determining suppliers’ capacity to deliver the ordered goods on time is a necessary step in the sourcing process. You also need to verify the nature of the suppliers’ businesses, their status as exporters and their creditworthiness before placing an order.
It might become necessary to check on your prospective supplier’s financial standing, especially when a large amount of order is involved. One reason is to determine whether the supplier is capable of handling your order and is not in danger of going bankrupt. A close examination of his finances will indicate whether he has the means to make good on his promises.
Hiring an agent

Getting an agent might be the best option if you do not want to spend a lot of time with the details of sourcing in Vietnam or with follow-up work. Agents can locate products and suppliers and can also perform other groundwork. They can follow up orders that have been placed.
Choosing an agent who is familiar with all facets of trading can ensure that the goods are delivered on time. You will need to check the agent’s experience.
