In addition, “don’t add any punctuation marks” when you are filling in the amount option, if not the system is not able to calculate the amount.

Next, please select the option:

Please select the payment methods:

* Note: –X1 is the goods that need to provide invoice.

                 X2 is the goods that no need to provide invoice.

*The exchange rate of X1 and X2 have differences, and the bank accounts used to transfer money also different.*

*X2 is temporarily closed now, only X1 can be selected.

If you use “Internet Banking Transfer” or “Cash Transfer” services, please select this option.

Please make sure that you have completed the bank in transaction before 4 p.m., then your supplier will be receiving the payment (RMB) on the next working day.

If you use a cheque to make the payment, the 3 working days process period is needed for your supplier to receive the RMB payment.

*Generally, the exchange rate will be relatively high, because the exchange rate trend will be different after 3 working days.*

If you have BA (bank acceptance) approved by the bank for your company, you can select this option.

  • We will provide the invoice of the goods to you.
  • You can submit the invoice to bank to get the loan, and then the bank will make transfer transaction directly to our company account.
  • Lastly, we will help you transfer RMB to your supplier.

*Next, please click “Book” to proceed to the next step.*

Common Question (FAQ)

X1: We will charge an additional fee 2% of the Total Amount (RMB) as “Invoice Fee”. The exchange rate will be better than X2.

X2:We do not charge any additional fees when the transaction amount more than 10000 RMB. We will charge additional fees 20 RMB when the transaction amount less than 10000 RMB. *The exchange rate will be worse than X1.*

Most of the people think that it would be more cost-effective to charge the 2% fee after converted to RMB. In fact, the amount is the same. For example:

10000 RMB ÷ 1.653 = RM 6049.61

 (means that need to pay “RM 6049.61” to our company bank account to exchange “10000 RMB”)

RM 6049.61 × 2% = RM 120.99

10000 RMB × 2% = 200 RMB     (200 RMB ÷ 1.653 = RM 120.99 )

*Conclusion – (RMB) 2% charge fee = (RM) 2% charge fee

The exchange rate of X1 will be much better than the exchange rate on the market, and also much better than X2. Moreover, if you count it properly, the exchange rate of X1 after deducted by 2% charge fee, the total amount of RMB that will be obtained is not much different with X2.

STEP 5:Fill in the details of China's Suppliers


Payment for: Choose the corresponding method according to your own situation, which contains “Full payment”, “Deposit”, “Balance”, and “Others”.
