Business Cards

Today I received my very own business cards, I did some internships before, however they were not client/factory facing. The process of accepting and receiving business cards in China is a little different to the rest of the world:

  1. When presented with a business card, you should always accept it with two hands shaped like you are praying.
  2. Secondly you need to thank the person for the card
  3. Study the card in a very obvious way- make sure you look at every detail on both sides of the card.
  4. NEVER just put a card directly into your wallet. You need to read it as a sign of respect.
  5. NEVER write on a business card, you might as well slap the person who gave it to you- there is no difference between the two in China
  6. Once you have studied the card carefully put it into your wallet and present yours to the businessperson
  7. They will now follow these previous steps

And that is everything you need to know on business cards in China- Good luck!
