Choosing a wholesale supplier can be a difficult task. The internet is full of suppliers wanting you to contact them and use their business but there are a number of factors to consider before you do.
You are, of course, looking for the deal that will make you the most profit and be the right choice for your business. However it’s advisable to look around and take your time when choosing a wholesale supplier and don’t necessarily go for the one that offers the cheapest prices.
Like everything, you should focus on quality. This doesn’t mean that you can’t use a cheap supplier but you need to do your homework first, otherwise you might regret it.
As a wholesale buyer there are a few things you should consider before choosing a supplier;
Find out as much information about your supplier as possible. What is their customer care policy? Do they offer refunds? How long and how much does postage cost? These are all things you need to investigate to ensure your products arrive and are good quality.
Contacts. When choosing a wholesale supplier you should look into how you contact them. If they don’t have a phone number or an email then it might pay to stay away from using them – you need to know you can interact with them if you have an issue.
Check their products are guaranteed – a good supplier will offer a policy to give you peace of mind. They may even offer samples which will give you the opportunity to test their products and to ensure they are good quality. This can also mean (if you like what you see) that you find a supplier that you feel confident using regularly.
