    Hi Max, and welcome to ABW.

    1.Are you interested in Chinese products?
    2.What do you think the Chinese products?
    Actually we buy a lot of products in this country that are made in China and imported and sold in retail stores, without even thinking about it - clothing, gift items and a lot of others. And personally I'm very glad that the trade and economy in China is growing, with more opportunities for the people now and for future generations.

    But if you're talking about items that are specifically Chinese "ethnic" products, kitchen and home decor items, that's different and I don't know about it myself. But do know that there are specialty shops in major cities that specialize in "ethnic" products, particularly big cities (or neighborhoods) that have a large Chinese population.

    3.What kinds of Chinese products are you interered in?Are you buy the Chinese product frequently through EBAY?
    I've never bought anything at Ebay, bt I know a lot of people do - looking for bargains.

    Personally, at times I do a lot of Chinese cooking at home (Love Chinese food), so I will go to specialty Chinese markets to have a large selection of authentic groceries to choose from. I use an authentic Wok and "spatula" and do buy very ethnic food items to use in cooking - bean threads, pressed bean curd, sesame oil, specific vegetables like bok choy and chinese cabbage, the hot pickled turnip that's sliced for hot & sour and tofu and pork dishes - certain cuts of meat - you get the idea. But only some of that can be imported. Cookware and serveware and some kitchenware certainly can be. That covers question 3 - but I'm not representative of what your high demand potential customers might be.

    4.If has one advertisement Affiliate to promote the Chinese product specially, would you like to go to join the member?
    I buy at the local Chinese grocery stores and markets, and have never bought anything at Ebay so I can't say at all. At ecommerce stores with affiliate programs, I imagine specialty cookware could sell - depending the demand and whether or not the target market is doing a lot of online shopping yet.

    Internet selling with an affiliate program, if that's what's being considered, might work if the right niche and market is tapped into and a good program set up. But again, it's a matter of product and keyword research and consumer demand to see what people are actually buying online and know what direction to go in.

    If you're thinking of importing goods from China to sell here, Ebay or a website with an affiliate program, the best thing would be to do keyword research to see what products are getting a lot of searches at the search engines - and how competitive - to be able to figure out how good the market potential would be.

    I bet there is some demand for home accent, decor and "Oriental" style furniture, but it would take research to know how much and who the targeted audience would be. It might just be a very good niche that hasn't been tapped into and crowded with competition yet - definitely worth doing some good research on.

    BTW, there is a member here who is very knowledgable and highly respected and capable, and was raised in a traditional Chinese home. If she finds this thread she may be able to give you some first hand valuable insight and encouragement.

    It's very late and I'm half asleep, so hope I was clear enough and made some sense.

    Hi, I'd agree. Being Chinese myself, I know that a retail site focused on Asian-themed items would probably be a hit if marketed correctly. You can also gauge consumer demand by the number of mom-and-pop brick-n-mortar stores popping up in malls. I know there are Asian grocery stores online, but I don't personally know of any specifically Asian online retails stores.

    Webworker's right, there would also be a ton of good content for you to use in your optimization and to pass along to affiliates if that was in your interests. Recipes, history, geesh, there's probably enough Chinese history out there to fill a million pages! If you ever want to brainstorm about where to go from here, feel free to PM, IM or contact me in anyway!

    It would depend upon the individual products available for me to specifically market.

    Hi Ken,
    usually most people say hi and welcome themselves to the board, especially before asking for contact info about a member. When they don't, they come off as suspicious.
    Now that you have said hi ... Hi!
    you might want to edit your message to change your email to something like hu_zhe/hotmail/com or something so you don't get tons of spam in your inbox.
    Just a suggestion.
