What should be prepared before ordering?
1. Make a purchase strategy in advance
For example, you are planning to order big quantity for furniture, you can contact with some suppliers in Alibaba or Make-in-China websites something like these for information first. Then go ahead to book a hotel and plan a trip. Otherwise, you also can contact us Riwick for sourcing suggestions.
Purchase for home purpose
If you are purchasing for home use, also need to have some knowledge for sea transportation, customs clearance and so on. If you already knew this, please have a look at our below topic：
Order from market or factories？
Single product with big quantity
In this case, it’s better to go directly to the factories. Since they are more professional for certain item. Make a plan to visit the factories and check their actual situation. For example, you want 3-4 designs for sofa sets, shall we order from several factories? Of course no. Now many suppliers provide the ODM/OEM service for many designs.you just need to compare the price and quality. Here’s a professional manufacturer who have 12 years experiences can provide the ODM/OEM service, website：ICESOFA, SIZER SOFA.
Go to market for various of items
For instance, you purchase for hotel stuff, it’s better to check in the market. Seeing is believing. Most of the shops in the market are factories direct sales.
Price and discount.
How many percentage discounts we can get? In my opinion, it depends. Large quantity always can get a big discount around 20%, otherwise, small orders get a little discount maybe 10%. Besides, nowadays the price is more transparent than before, most of the shops would not call high price. But we also need to concern about the designs and quality. I believe you get what you pay for. However, the material price has been shot up a lot since September 2016 like the steel, wood, and sponge, so now the furniture prices are little higher.
