Why We’re Here

In 2010, Ian Schoots and Adam Paterson founded The Importing Club of Australia. Since then, we’ve expanded to multiple offices in Australia and China.

Importing from China isn’t easy. We saw the need for a real support network, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to create it.

We believe all Australians deserve the opportunity to create the life they want.

That’s why we founded the Importing Club of Australia.

What We Do

We Show How To Create An Importing Business

We run live events Australia-wide to reveal the system we use to import from China. We’ve used this method with hundreds of importers to create real importing businesses.

And we’d like to share it with you too.

If you’d like to start your own importing business, these events are the best way to learn how.

We offer membership to the Australian Importing Club for attendees who want to work with us.

We Help On The Ground In China

Our China office exists for the benefit of our members.

We provide product sourcing, supplier due diligence, quality control, and freight forwarding services.

With access to our growing network of industry contacts and experts, you’re never alone.

We Make Successful Ecommerce Sellers

Getting your products is only half the work. To be successful, you need to know how to sell your products online.

The Importing Club of Australia has a faculty of online marketing experts. We deliver cutting-edge marketing training to keep your products selling online.

We Solve Your Importing Problems

The biggest problem most importers face is uncertainty. Any time you get stuck, you slow down.

Momentum is powerful when it comes to building a business.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re negotiating with suppliers, or listing your products online. Our team is here to keep you moving.

Where We’re Going

We’re working to build a brighter future for all Australians. To give them the tools to create a better life. To fulfil their dreams using importing as their vehicle.

Importers from all over the country have created real businesses using our methods. We’d like to help you do the same.

The Importing Club of Australia Head Office is in Melbourne, Victoria. If you would like to visit our office, please make an appointment by phone.
