Tips on Buying Clothing in Lots

Published at 03/28/2012 02:08:43


If you’re planning on having your own online clothing business, you can start by knowing where to get your clothing supplies. These days, online clothing businesses get their clothing supplies from online suppliers who offer wholesale clothing lots. It’s quite a risky investment because you can’t always trust every transaction online. So, here are some tips for you to know about buying clothing in lots from suppliers.

Step 1

Tip 1: Look for trusted suppliers

Looking for trusted suppliers is very important if you’re planning to buy clothing lots online. You need to make sure that your investment is in good hands and that you won’t end up with any scammers as there are a lot of them online. You need to do background checks for the possible suppliers who offer wholesale clothing lots. Check if they’ve posted any contact number, check their details, where they are from and what products they sell. You can also check their ratings, and the testimonials from buyers. Also check the testimonials carefully since you’re going to get more details from these customers. Check if these testimonials seem credible because it is possible that these are just made up testimonials to make the supplier look legitimate.

Step 2

Tip 2: Read carefully

If you plan to buy wholesale clothing lots online, you have to make sure to read carefully all the things that the suppliers have posted. Read the product description, how much it costs, the type of cloth per clothing, the brand, and the size. Some suppliers who sell clothing lots should also have their terms and conditions. Most people usually don’t read these because they find it too long. That is actually not a good thing to practice because they can play with the slightest details and in the end, if you have any complaints, they will always go back to their terms and conditions and you can’t do anything about it because it’s your fault in the first place why you didn’t read it. You have to make sure that you’ve understood everything.

Step 3

Tip 3: Identify a payment method

In buying clothing lots online from your suppliers, you need to know the payment method that they ask for. Make sure you get the right instructions, list down their account name and account number and check twice to make sure you have written the details correctly. If you’re sending the payment through bank deposits, make sure that you are able to keep the receipt. As much as possible, scan the receipt and send to your supplier for confirmation of the payment that you have made.

It would be better if you choose a supplier for clothing lots who offers split payments for the items that you’re going to purchase. A trusted supplier offers a down payment upon ordering and will accept the other half upon shipping.


Tip 4: Ask questions

If the suppliers for these clothing lots have written some vague information or perhaps they haven’t given enough information for the buyers, it’s always good to ask. Asking questions would help you clarify things with your prospect supplier. You can even ask for anything that would be favourable to you such as other payment methods, or even possible added discounts for the purchased items.

Tip 5: Identify shipping couriers

Suppliers for clothing lots usually have preferred shipping couriers for their products. You have to know what their shipping couriers are. If the suppliers don’t offer free shipping and charge the shipping fees to the buyers, make sure that these shipping fees are correct. Go to the websites of these shipping couriers and identify if their rates are the same with the rates given by the supplier. Aside from the shipping rates, you have to know how long it would take for you to receive the package. Always demand a scanned copy of the shipping receipt with the tracking number from your supplier.
