There are so many wholesale women clothing sellers online, it’s no surprise it’s getting harder and harder to find the one which would cater for your niche best.
The best way to get started is to write down the list of wholesale distributors you are potentially interested in - either domestic or foreign and start contacting them. Important thing here is to look at the minimum order requirements and their wholesale unit prices.
How to approach a wholesaler and make it work?
You can start your research with basic google search terms e.g. wholesale, fashion wholesale, women’s wholesale plus some keywords from your products or niche. Go through each result one by one and look for contact information on their website.
Attend Trade Shows
Attending tradeshows is usually one of the most powerful ways to build and grow your business where wholesalers usually set up booths with their supply! Nothing beats face to face interaction. Don’t forget to use the directory and the exhibit map plan so that you don’t waste your time at the place.
Make sure your first contact is productive
You want to establish a professional contact with a wholesaler. However, it’s not always easy as you may think. Sometimes you may end up speaking with different person every time you give them a call. It’s always best to know one or two people by name, this not only makes the conversation more effective but you can learn more about your potential wholesaler. If they can provide you with all the information you need - stick with them. However, if you have doubts, it’s best to look somewhere else. It’s important to follow up with your wholesaler as they might be busy and won’t be able to always respond.
Ask for samples
When you approach a wholesaler, you should always ask them for samples. Never start selling your items unless you have seen it, touched it and tested it. If a wholesaler won’t provide you with fabric swatches, don’t worry, there are so many other wholesalers online, you can skip them if you feel they are not the right fit for you and your company.
