Meeting with Bafang CEO-Mr.Wang

The internet sales is growing up very quick and hard to control the quality, Mr.WANG(The big boss of Bafang) invited me(BTN electric bike CEO: Kevin Fang) to their company to discuss the online sales business and brand control, here is the questions what we talking about, if you are interested, please let me know your guys idea:

1. Products bought online, where is the service?

2. How to control the B2B and B2C customer's service?

3. Brand authorize to Companies who want sell or authorize to third sales plateform like aliexpress,amazon,ebay?

4. New products range or current products? I don't think BBS is possible to control now, because it use on complete bike and online sales together now.


5. Oneline products warranty time shorter,but cheaper for end customer?

I also like and trust Bafang products. I have their fat bike rear motor, their small SWXH hub motor, and the BBS02 with good results so far. If you see old man Wang again, suggest that he update his web page to show current sales. They must be closer to a million motors a year now. That's a lot of magnets.

In the USA, Bafang is most closely associated with the mid drive speed freaks at Lunacycle.com. I like speed too, but ride my bikes pretty slow and they have not broken yet.

There are numerous other good sellers and support people. Some with far better support. They answer their phones and have full one year warranties. No hidden 30 day warranties. Empoweredcycles, Lectric cycles, California eBikes, are a few. ALL with great warranties.

There was a long thread on Facebook Endless Sphere. A consultant gathered all sorts of information. Because some USA companies actually attack anyone reporting any negatives, many are hesitant to reply in a public thread.

You should be contacting the smaller resellers in the USA. Several are already your customers. Some have already had problems with your ability and timing supplying repair parts. THAT is one of the biggest issues. VERY BAD and VERY SLOW parts support to the small guys. Support the smaller shops. Don't simply supply a single big dealer.
