One of the major things covered in FBA Empire is how to test product samples before purchasing large quantity orders. This allows you to not only see the quality of the product yourself, but also helps weed out possible scams. If a supplier EVER tells you they cannot send you a sample, do not even bother contacting them again!!!
The thing about getting samples sent from overseas, is that each sample could easily cost you $50 to $100 a pop. Something many people do on their first go round with importing is not ask enough from the supplier (whether that is not negotiating the unit price enough, shipping times, etc...). Almost every single supplier will actually COMP you the price of the sample, if you end up choosing them as your main supplier.
While a $100 sample may seem insignificant to some, let's say you can get the unit cost of your product + shipping to the US for $4 each. That would be a 25 unit increase to the original order you were going to place. If you make $20 profit per each unit sold, you just made another $500. Again maybe $500 does not seem like much to you, but that $500 could purchase an extra 125 units you would not have been able to before, which translates into an extra $2500 profit ON JUST YOUR SECOND ORDER!!! I could continue this math onto your 4th and 5th orders, but I think you get the point.
Again these are just a few main points to keep in mind that can really help take your FBA Empire business from doing average, to killing it in a very short amount of time.
