International Trade - the Ins and Outs of Import and Export
John Gates, author
This is a book for new international traders - not just dropshippers, or Amazon sellers, this is for the serious international trader who has a product that he or she wants to sell into international markets on a large scale. This is about physical selling, and seeks to probe those areas of trade that are unfamiliar to the new trader. We explore what you can do on your own -vs - what you can do if you use experts, even if you are on a tight budget. Our mantra is "you don't know what you don't know .." How do you interpret that? How will you deal with it? What are the "unknown unknowns" ? International Trade is not for the faint hearted. It is for serious entrepreneurs who take their trading futures very seriously. What do you know about Risk? What do you know about the markets that you might want to sell into? What do you know about Insurance? How will you get your product to market? How will you ensure that you get paid? How will you protect your Intellectual Property? How can you be first to market? How can you protect yourself against sovereign risk? How much do you know about the supply chain, or the transport chain, or the "getting paid" chain? How do you protect yourself against all of these risks?
