      Both of these products are really good. You can not tell which is the best, because they have their own taste properties

      Everything depends on the region

      The differences between Spanish and Greek olive oils are not easily noticeable as these are usually mixed and sold in the same bottle. While the product maybe labeled as Spanish, it is actually a combination of oils from difference countries, including Spain, Greece, and Italy; only the blending and packaging is done in Spain. This is due to the fact that the per capita consumption of olive oil in Spain far exceeds what the country can produce. To meet the international demand for this oil, the country imports olive oil from Italy and Greece.

      Every country has its taste :)

      Actually there are more countries producing olive oil: Spain, Italy, Greece, Syria, Morocco, Turkey, Tunisia, Portugal, Algeria and others in the world. So I'd rather say every type of it has its taste and every is better for a specific meal.

      Hello! You should ask next documents from the seller: - The contract of sale or an invoice - The registration certificate (Registreringsbevis). This needs to be the original. If several parts are issued, all need to be sent - The seller is not legally obliged to provide the European Certificate of Conformity (COC). If no COC is available from the seller, you can contact the manufacturer in your country of residence. If the manufacturer cannot provide a COC, you can ask a technical service in Sweden or in your home country.

      Every buyer has to remember the list of documents he/she needs while buying a car abroad.These are the original Certificate of Title or a certified copy of the original, and two complete copies of the original Certificate of Title or certified copy of the original. The vehicle must be presented on the day of export at the appropriate place, along with the attached form, for examination and verification of the VIN. Remember, many borders, especially ports do not process cars for export on weekends; call ahead to make sure your schedule will conform to the business hours of the port you will be exporting through. Also, to help speed up the inspection process, please have the attached form completed prior to arrival at the port.

      Easier for you

      You actually have to ask the car manufacturers how to do it precisely or if it is a Volvo or Saab, or a Scania truck, then just find the nearest dealer. If you want to buy a Koenigsegg, which I am glad for you, then you have to contact them directly. Good luck in driving.

      There are some advantages of verified sellers: secure trade, trading process is protected, the deals are easy and safe, safeguards for all the parties, guidance with documents, helping you on every step of the way, assistance with shipping etc.

      First of all, verified sellers get much more features: unlimited listings, 24/7 support, possibilities to upload pictures, videos and other files. But, despite all these bonuses, the main difference is trust, because people (I mean buyers) trust sellers, which are verified. So, if you are really interested in export/import business, my advice for you is to get verified! As you can see it will be a great help for you to find your new customers and partners.

      Use Export Portal to find new customers!

      From my point of view, the best way to find customers for rubber is to use Export Portal. Displacing your products in online catalog attracts international sellers and gives you the possibility to expand your business globally.

      My advice for you is to use B2B feature on the website. It will help you to find your constant partners. Also, you can use "highlight" and "featured" opportunities, so as to make your product notable by the customers. Btw, the top importers of rubber are China, USA, Malaysia, Japan and South Korea.

      Export Business

      Of course, any export/import business requires time for documents preparation and finding new potential clients and customers. Despite all these, opening a business is easy these days, but making it profitable is difficult even with all the tools that have been afforded to us in the last 10 years online to organize. With the internet as the biggest competitor, clients are constantly being bombarded with cheaper prices cutting out our margins. That being said the right kind of customer will be loyal to you was long as you have a reasonable price. Many might not see that as loyalty but the dollar speaks for itself. Basically it all comes down to finding something that one place doesn't have (and needs) and bringing it there. "All one must do to make gold is bring water to the desert."

      No! If you are already a seller with the license, it takes about 5 minutes (!) to become a verified seller on Export Portal. All you have to do, is to register and to go through the accreditation. As for me, I registered, and after an hour I already had some orders. Also, if you want to do business faster, you can use B2B feature and find your partner for constant and profitable business relationship. Good luck!
