Wuhan Corona Virus Amazon Seller Personal Update with SymoGlobal China Team

Today Steve Simonson is joined by a few members of the SYMOGLOBAL.com China team.

We check in with the team leaders to be sure they are alright and we ask about the situation in China and what they think about the current response as well as the potential for recovery.

We also dive into the timing of factory openings, what impact any delays may cause, and there is further discussion about some of the regional supply chain realities that exist as a result of the current situation.

Although the China team members speculate that the peak is near or perhaps 7-10 days away, Steve points out that the CHINA authorities are saying that timeline more often than outside experts who suggest the peak is still many weeks away.

The fact that China is taking so many steps appears to have contained it to within China, and we hope that they can get it under control ASAP.

We wanted to bring real people who are responsible for hundreds of containers and let them tell you what they are experiencing.

We don't know who is right and we hope for a immediate containment and elimination of this virus.

I wanted Amazon Sellers last week not to travel to China until at least June (or we know more) and now the US Government is catching up.


DO NOT GOTO THE CANTON FAIR - it's not worth the risk! I've heard most people are getting refunds from organized trips, but I've heard a couple people asked for a refund and got shut down by a specific trip. I recommend retaining an attorney because Force Majeure should allow you to break any contract and get a full refund. Anyone not offering this without a hassle appears to be ripping you off. Message me with examples of tour refund rejections and I can refer you to an attorney.
