  • Most profitable items to export to UK for resale?

    Hi,

    I've just found this forum as I am visiting Bali from Scotland, for the first time next week, and considering shipping a container load of furniture back to UK for resale.

    As I have been sourcing suppliers online, and plan to fly to Java whilst over there, it struck me that I should ask the question......are there any other products that show good profit in the UK market.

    Thanks for any pointers on this.

    Welkome to the forum pinkiescot...from another Scot but not sure I'm a Pinkie.
    Furniture is made in Bali and the best will be the intrically carved wood. Better furniture, and probaly cheaper, and in a variety of shapes etc. will come from Jepara in East Java.
    Bata shoes sell all types and are modern and well made for the fashion market and a deal with managemeent on a consignment will privide discount. A favorit export is the plastic rattan couches and chairs...with fluff back cushions. Can be used outside or inside. Balinese unique shell and semi-precious necklaces are also popular and can easily be returned if not sold....or simply gifted.

      Hi Davita,

      Thanks so much for that. Actually all the things I have been looking at, so good to have confirmation on that.

      Can anyone recommend a sourcer for products in Jepara? I have the names of a couple of factories I would like to visit, but really want to work with someone who can take care of my order for me and ensure quality/shipment.

      Thanks.

            I'd imagine good quality batik clothes for men and women. The scarfs too!

            I have a contact that buys from Java and bring it to her city back in Sumatera that may be able to help you if you prefer.

                  How about Batik Tulis Madura... It's modern pattern (flora and coral of the sea). You can't contact us to see fabric of Batik

                      Before considering exporting anything you must know your customer base.  What will they want and how much will they pay for it.  What age group are you targeting.  Are they home owners or renters.  There is so much to know before you invest in the wrong items, only to find they have become your own personal possessions for the remainder of your life.  I exported from Asia for over 40 years, some items very successful some not.  Without a very clear vision of your customer you will increase the chances of losing lots of money foolishly.

                        How about real Indonesian coffee, especially the one made from poop?
                        In the past, I've seen Javanese coffee selling on ebay for crazy prices, WITH people actually bidding on it too!

                          I've never tasted this kind of coffee! I can’t force myself, although it seems to be very tasty. How to cook it at all? Do I need a special coffee maker or this will be fine? Or I need special equipment?

                            It is famously known as "Kopi Luwak or Civet Cofee". It is a partially digested coffee cherries, which have been eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet.

                            How to prepare of brewing it. is the same with brewing coffee from other coffee beans.

                            Grind your coffee to a coarse setting.
                            Place beans in French press.
                            Boil 16 ounces of water and wait around 2 minutes until water is 203-205° F (95-96° C)
                            Add hot water to French press and stir with plastic or wooden spoon.

                              It can vary depending on market demand and competition, but some items that have historically been profitable to export to the UK for resale include:
                              1. Luxury goods such as designer clothing, handbags, and watches.
                              2. Food and drink products, particularly specialty items and organic products.
                              3. Home decor and furniture items, particularly those made from high-quality materials.
                              4. Technology products, particularly smartphones and laptops.
                              5. Beauty and personal care products, such as skincare and makeup.
                              It is important to keep in mind that regulations and tariffs can change, so it's important to research and stays up to date with the most recent information before exporting any goods. Additionally, you may want to consider consulting with a trade specialist or an export-import lawyer for more specific advice on the most profitable items for your business.
