1. Verify their company registration information

Checking a company's registration information, such as registration date, business scope, registration address, trademarks, etc., can let you see if they are legal and experienced.

2. Check their reputation

What are other people saying about this supplier? Is it a reliable manufacturer and supplier? Their price is the affordable price?
