Welcome to our community :)
Kindly refer to my answers below -
1) Hot products to import from China and around the world
We don't really have a list to give you. You see the kinds of products considered as 'Hot' will change over time so this means that finding what products are hot would entail a lot of research :)
Although we don't have a written list we do provide our members a tool to help them find niche markets/items. If you haven't yet, I recommend trying our Link hidden: Login to view
to help you find profitable products to sell.
We also publish every Monday our Monday Market of the Week blogs which features profitable niches (which I search for using our very own Market Research Lab) for you to sell .
2) How can i go about looking for the above information on a regular basis and from where?
I think I just answered this question in my reply above :) But we also have guides to help you come up with what products to sell - Link hidden: Login to viewLink hidden: Login to viewLink hidden: Login to view
3) List of Trusted Wholesalers from China and around the world?
I can help you with this once you have a specific list of products you want to sell :) Once you do flick me a PM or email or add that list to this thread and I'll start searching for suppliers!
4) Shipping from china and list of trusted Shipping companies who will ship to Australia
Everything and anything that has to do with shipping is beyond our scope since all shipping arrangements will be done by the suppliers themselves. So it is best to ask them directly about this once you have chosen your suppliers.
