Things to check before Ordering Clothes Wholesale

When it comes to ordering clothes from a wholesale supplier, there are a number of important factors to consider. Whether you’re ordering for your own retail store or for a private label product launch, understanding these factors can help ensure a successful transaction and a satisfied customer.

First and foremost, it’s crucial to choose the right size and colour for the product you’re interested in. Additionally, you should know the mixing ratio of the fabric to ensure you’re getting the quality you want. This will help you avoid disappointment and ensure your customers receive the product they expect.

Another important consideration is the reliability of the manufacturer (seller) and the quality of the product. It’s important to do your research and choose a supplier who is known for producing high-quality products and providing good customer service.

When ordering from a wholesale supplier, it’s important to remember that you can’t buy by the piece. Wholesalers provide goods to retailers at wholesale prices, and buying in bulk is perceived as an individual purchase. You need to buy each product by colour, size, or buy more than one piece of one product.

It’s also important to be aware of the four seasons of clothing that are produced: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Products may sell out quickly if the season is short, and as the clothes are made according to the Korean seasons, you need to check the difference in clothes (fabric) for each season.

If you want to purchase a product that is out of stock, it is possible to re-purchase with a bulk order, with a minimum order of 10 to 100 pieces depending on the fabric. The production period is 1~4 weeks, and the production schedule varies depending on the fabric check and factory schedule.

When ordering clothes from multiple stores, it’s important to keep in mind that wholesale brands sell products after production, so each store has different stock levels. Therefore, the item may be delivered late due to stock delays at one store.

It’s also important to consider the shipping time if the product is outside of Korea, as it may take a long time depending on the situation of the country. Additionally, if you’re launching a private label product, it’s possible to replace the label with help from the supplier.

Finally, if there is a delay in receiving the goods at once due to a large order volume, it is possible to make a selection through the shipping manager to receive partial delivery.

In conclusion, ordering clothes from a wholesale supplier requires careful consideration of a variety of factors. By keeping these factors in mind and working with a reliable supplier, you can ensure a successful transaction and a satisfied customer.
