Business always require serious and respect. Sales contract is a legal protection for a foreign trade business. No matter for buyers, China factory suppliers, and export trade company. Must work based on the contract. Although there are many excuse or reasons, but focus on the contract. In fact, business is a communication process. Of course, there should be many chance to communicate, discuss, and negotiate to solve the problems. But we need take our own responsibility first. Only based on sales contract, business should be easier and clearer.
(5) Hire export trade company or sourcing buying agent
Don’t want to introduce ourselves. Or want to advertise to attract some clients for you. I simple want to explain a fact. “How to manage your business oversea”? In fact, buy wholesale products from China factory suppliers, it’s your business oversea, right? And you don’t stay in China to waiting for the goods ready. And can’t take care of the bulk stock products shipping. Which means you have to hire service company to help you. As well as need China factory suppliers to help you custom made products.

Then to reach the final targets. Obviously, buyer, China factory suppliers, and export trade agent, are same team. And each partner should have the same target. To buy wholesale products from China smoothly, safely, and fast. No matter custom made, or stock bulk orders.
(6) Try to find China factory suppliers in manufacturer hubs
A: Know about manufacture hubs
China is a very big manufacture hub. While many cities have featured products. And there are completed and experienced supplier chains in the manufacture hub. For instance, Guangzhou is famous for fashion clothing, textile products, bags, and furniture. If you want to custom made shoes, the best places are in Fujian, Wenzhou. Meantime, small commodities are in Yiwu, Wenzhou, and Taizhou. For home appliance and fashion clothing and fabric, Ningbo, Shanghai, Cixi are the best places. Of course, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Foshan, Chengdu, etc. So many famous cities or area for special featured products.
B: Try to place order at manufacturer hubs
Do remember, ask your export trade company, or sourcing buying agent recommend China factory suppliers from such manufacture hubs. And try to place custom made bulk order to them. You will find, same design, if you find correct China factory suppliers. The price should be much cheaper. Nor matter metal or plastic commodities. Or sock, cap, or scraf products. Of course, if you want to buy bulk stock products, use same methods.
C: Don’t worry about shipping
Maybe you will be worry about the shipping methods. Take it easy. Because a good export trade company, can help you consolidate and shipping from every China city. For bulk orders, generally use sea full container shipping. So that only a little difference between the cities nearby port or not. Furthermore, if consider about the quality inspection, only means a little travel fees and labor cost. Which are not so expensive. But comparing buy wholesale products in the best China factory suppliers. These is not a problem at all.
(7) Try to place custom made orders to specialized China factory suppliers
A: Focus on correct products range
For this point, please understand, that different technique and machines for different products manufacture. So that you’d better check the China factory suppliers which products are the most competitiveness for them. For instance, sportswear clothing, seems similar with swimming wear, or underwear, but totally different for manufacturing. Moreover, because of dedicated in certain products, the China factory suppliers have more competitiveness in the certain area. From material purchasing, work process, and experienced designers. As well as the cutting, sewing workers. Which are always mean lower cost, and better quality.
B: Choose correct cities
Furthermore, based on the manufacture hubs. If you want to place knitting wear to Dongguan, Shanghai or Wenzhou. Surely it’s wrong choice. Because that cities are mainly for fashion woven garments. For knitting wear, the best places are in Dalang, Shantou, and Ningbo Tongxiang. Even in such area, maybe have some garments factory suppliers. But surely, they have to purchase related material, accessories from the manufacture hubs. Even some garment China factory suppliers, will out-sourcing service with other manufacturers. By the way, same situation for shoes, fabric, bags, footwear accessories, etc. Although Guangzhou is the biggest and best marketplace for wholesale. But different featured products, have manufacture hubs in other China cities.
(8) Enlarge your quantities of custom made orders with inventory risky awareness
A: Good quantities reduce cost
Since we understand and accept “cost based on quantities”. Then you can try your best to enlarge your order quantities as you can. Because better quantities always can get better price. For instance, although the MOQ of China factory suppliers for custom made is 500 pieces. If you place order in 2,000 pieces, the price should be better. And if 5,000 pieces? Absolutely, you can get more competitive price. And the China factory suppliers are very welcome such custom made orders.
In fact, many big wholesalers from you local markets, get cheaper price from big quantities for custom made, or bulk stock buying. Please note, the cost to be cheaper, is not only for less cost and profit margin from the China factory suppliers. But also comes from the raw material suppliers, accessories cost, and management fees. Furthermore, the inland transportation cost, warehouse store fees, and export shipping cost, will be all cheaper for unit price.
B: Pay attention to inventory risky
Of course, seems every business man should understand such simply reason. But how to enlarge your custom made order quantities? Here, we think the best way is that, you need understand your local market demand. And you can forecast the sales revenue for some certain designs. Yes, don’t want to enlarge each designs. Only focus on 10% to 20% designs. Which you think should be best sales for your new collections. Then you still need consider the inventory risky. Which means, if too much quantities bulk stock, can’t sell out before next season. The inventory is another style of cost. That’s why custom made bulk order, are always the most important way to buy wholesale products. But most of the business man, can’t accept or try to buy wholesale products with customs made orders. Instead of, many wholesalers, prefer to buy wholesale products from marketplace.
(9) Require China factory suppliers protect your brand image or fashion designs
Sometimes, for fashion brand company, they generally will have own image, and original designs. Before they launch to the wholesale markets, the new designs are commercial secrets. In fact, anyone have such demand, can require the China factory to protect your unique products or designs. To avoid fake replica products.
As we know, there are many copy branded products in wholesale markets. For instance, fake Nike, Adidas, Jordan sports sneakers or sportswear. Or LV, Gucci, Dior brand bags, shoes, clothing, or cosmetics products. Even replica branded watches, glasses, belts, etc. Such fake branded products are illegal in China. While we only want to make an example here. If your designs are very nice. Maybe should pay attention to protect your original designs. As well as your logo, labels, and related accessories.
How to buy bulk stock products from China factory suppliers with cheapest price?
What’s the exactly meaning of “bulk stock products” we are talking about here?
Here, for “bulk stock”, we need focus on the meaning of “shelf off” products. And not mean the newest designs. Or hot selling bulk orders for ready stock. For the normal products, you can reference as “custom made” purchasing. Because same process, same way, and same tips. Here, let’s focus on “cheapest bulk stock which to be shelf off”.
Sure, for such bulk stock products, the price should be the cheapest. Generally, only 20% to 30% of the original bulk price, when hot selling time. Why the bulk stock will be so cheap? Below, we shall introduce the difference. Or defects of bulk stock products, than on-selling goods.
1. Out of season for sales
Generally, many China factory suppliers or fashion companies, will launch new collections every season. And they will marketing the new designs. Meantime, shelf off the last seasons products. In this term, there are some bulk stock left. To consider of the inventory capital, and discount of next season. As well as the management cost, warehouse cost. So that the China factory suppliers will try to sell out in bulk order. With a cheap price, to attractive their clients to buy bulk.
2. Unsalable in certain markets
As we know, many designs maybe can’t be good sales. Because designs always focus on the market demand, but can’t so much precisely match the demands. Then surely will be some items can’t sell good. Which means lost of the China factory suppliers. And the best way is to sell out as soon as possible. Because even keep the bulk stock to next season, the sales should be worse then current term. This is a popular situation for a fashion company in business operation. While it’s also a chance for some wholesalers. Who can check and judge if the goods can sell in own local marketplace. Of course, sell in cheap price, is always helpful to attract consumption. And maybe change a market, the bulk stock should be good sales.
3. Short in sizes or color
Short in sizes or color, is popular status for some certain designs. Although some products are good sales in wholesale markets. But step by step, maybe short in sizes or color. As market demand are different. Such status no matter for wholesalers and retailers. But also for China factory suppliers.
By the way, these kinds of bulk stock, will be mixed design, color. And quantities are difference. Moreover, some designs are not last season. Maybe 2 or 3 years ago. Please note, different year’s bulk stock, have different price. Generally, if last seasons bulk stock sales in 40% discount. Then the 2nd years bulk stock should be 30% discount. And 3 years should be cheaper more. Of course, different material products, maybe have different situation. But generally are the same system. For shoes, fashion garments, leather bags, etc. If furniture, stainless steal products, home electric appliance, will be a little different.
4. Poor quality or have some small quality problem
When China factory suppliers are make custom made bulk orders. Or they produce some designs in bulk stuffs. Because of some special reasons. The bulk stuffs have quality problems. Nor matter the buyers rejected custom made orders. Or the China factory suppliers assume the loss. The bulk stock are difficult to sell out.
In such situation, the China factory suppliers will find some wholesale buyer to accept the products in very cheap price. Or ask some export trade companies or sourcing buying agent to recommend to their wholesale clients. If you just wholesale products in similar designs or categories. It will be a good chance.
As we all know, from good China factory suppliers, bulk products generally will be good quality. Only if some wrong raw material used. Or color tolerance. Or size difference. Maybe some times the wrong patterns. Anyway, for the bulk stock, there are good chance to be sell out. Especially in some certain markets. While for what markets, or what demands, have to judge by yourself. In a serious attitude.
5. China factory suppliers close down or need fast cash flow
Because of fierce competition. Or the management system problem. Or other special reasons. Maybe some China factory suppliers meet some troubles. And have to sell out the good stock immediately to get cash flow. Or the China factory supplier need change or adjust their main products. Then they need sell out the bulk stock.
In such situation, maybe a chance for you to buy cheap wholesale products. Who are sell similar designs in local markets. Because it’s a random opportunity. So that, need consider serious, and make decision quickly. Because the China factory supplier surely have many old clients. And everyone know this is a good chance. Maybe finally the price are not the cheapest. But surely be the best cost-value effective. Since China export trade company or sourcing buying agent, have many suppliers network.
