China is world factory. Buying directly from factory is cheap. But you will find it is not an easy job and enjoyable experience to buy small quantity from Chinese factory. In this article, we will guide you how and where you could buy small volume from china.
Chinese factories set high MOQ
Small business buyers don’t buy container or thousands of goods to test the water. You might need to buy 100 pairs of shoes, 50 USB, 5 computers etc. Factories will ignore your inquiry if your quantity is so small, which don’t reach their minimum order quantity.
In this case, I would suggest to buy from wholesaler, not trying to buy from the factories directly. The price from wholesalers in China are also very competitive, in some cases, will be cheaper than buying direct from factory.
For example, if you are buying apparel from China, you should definitely visit. the top apparel wholesale market in China(such as Sijiqing in Zhejiang, Baima in Guangzhou). If you want to buy electronics products, buy from Shenzhen wholesale market
Where you could buy small volume online
Aliexpress is a perfect place for small quantity purchase, aliexpress is set up by alibaba group, the sellers of aliexpress mostly are sellers on alibaba, so they are reliable(have been verified by alibaba). Most of all, they sell small quantity.
Some products are not suitable for small quantity purchase
Products like electronics are perfect items for small volume purchase, but you don’t buy a few chairs of tables or chairs directly from China, buy from your local suppliers, otherwise the international shipping overhead will make your products unsellable shipping all the way back to your country.
