Australia has a standard of living as high as anywhere in the world. But the cost of shopping here is high – with imported food, electronics, clothing and tonnes of others products brought here from China, Malaysia and other markets much more expensive than other countries with the same standard of living.
Australia is one of the world’s most expensive countries in the world for everyday living expenses.
This opens a door of opportunity for shopping in China online—especially for low cost consumer goods. Customers are constantly looking for ways to save money and directly importing goods instead of buying the same goods from local retailers and wholesalers is a great market opportunity for start-up import businesses.
Online Shopping China
China and Southeast Asian countries like Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia manufacture consumer goods that are priced very competitively by world standards. These Asian countries are the ideal locations for importing goods to launch to market in Australia.
Some in-demand products and brands to import:
- Consumer goods, notably shoes and apparel
- Home wares and textiles
- Consumer technologies
- Industrial components
- Niche sports
- Children’s products
- Hobby goods and supplies
