How to Choose Your Wholesale Clothing Supplier?

Wholesale buying is a standard strategy in retail due to favorable prices. If you’re at the point of choosing a wholesale clothing supplier, it’s worth scanning your potential partner in terms of the aspects listed below.

When running retail businesses, cooperation with wholesale suppliers is usually a part of the business strategy. Unless you’re working with vintage, second-hand items, buying wholesale quantities is the most favorable option in terms of finances.

Wholesale pricing allows you to reduce your spending by 50% or even more. Convenience is another factor the wholesale buyers underline. Ordering large quantities from the same provider is a great method to improve the flow of the goods, reducing their costs at the same time with the attractive wholesale deals.

However, choosing the best wholesale suppliers isn’t an easy thing to do. Which aspects should you take into account?

#1 Reputability

Considering the current situation on the market, it’s worth putting emphasis on the supplier’s approach to ecology. Even if your company pays attention to environmental issues, choosing the wrong supplier main ruin it. And since consumers pay great importance to this aspect nowadays, it’s worth verifying the textile sources and the outsourcing locations of the clothing production picked by your provider.

You most likely don’t want to cooperate with those who build factories in developing countries and keep their carbon print high. The latter may also be relevant in terms of emissions reduction requirements enforced by the European Union. Your provider’s carbon print may enhance yours, so don’t forget to verify that aspect!

#2 Approach to recycling

As we’ve just said, ecology is a really significant aspect for the modern customer, particularly when it comes to clothing. It’s worth launching cooperation with reputable suppliers that offer wholesale products made with recycled materials and further recyclable. It’s no longer a domain of niche producers since global wholesale companies have sensed the business opportunity in eco clothing. It’s definitely a mistake to ignore that aspect when picking a wholesale clothing partner.

#3 Quality assurance

Before launching cooperation, it’s worth asking the supplier about the methods the company uses to ensure the highest quality of their products. The quality management system with predictive analysis features may prevent possible delays in production or defects on the production line. That lowers your business risk, too.

Wholesale price shouldn’t be a decisive factor when it comes to choosing a supplier – these three aspects are essential for the current retailers. Whether you run an online store or a big retail sales business,
