As the largest wedding dress export country, China has been the first choice for many European and American wholesalers’ for the high quality and low price of the goods. If you are going to open a bridal shop and import from abroad, the perfect purchasing location must be Guangzhou and Suzhou in China. But not all of the merchants who want to import wedding dress from China can find a proper manufacturer. Even a little carelessness can make you meet scams, and then it may cause a heavy loss which is hardly made up for. So you must do preparatory work well when you decide to import from abroad. Now let’s talk about several methods that can find a reliable Chinese manufacturer.
The simplest way is searching corresponding key words via some search engines like Google, such as wedding dress suppliers, wedding dress wholesale suppliers and so on. This method is simple and practical, but you cannot make sure if they are all reliable manufacturers just through the Internet. Further observation and contact is needed via email or telephone. This is a comparatively ideal way for some little shop owners who have a small demand and want to import wedding dress to control the cost.
Besides search engines, you can also use some famous B2B platforms, such as Alibaba, Global Sources, and Made in China to find manufacturers. The good news is these platforms gather a large number of Chinese manufacturers and trading companies that have been verified. The bad news is that you need to identify which are trading companies and which are manufacturers. Of course, every platforms has some dishonest trading companies and it is not easy to identify if you never cooperate with them(Tip you should know, some forums would post names of the undesirable companies). If you are interested in some companies, you’d better gather as much as information to ensure they are legal and reliable.
Attending local trade fair in China is also a good idea. There are many real manufacturers for you to choose from. Although you cannot make sure all the companies are reputable, at least most of them are reliable and powerful. You have to know two large trade fairs in China, Canton Fair and East China Fair. You can see various factories and trading companies on these exhibitions. Most of them can speak in English, but many have limited spoken English skills. If you want to get further communications with them, you’d better remain an translator to help solving unnecessary troubles.
It’s necessary to visit their factory when you have a large quantity or you want a long term cooperation with the manufacturer. While conducting a field study, you can effectively judge if they have enough capability to fulfill your order, and it can avoid middle man and scams effectively as well. There are thousands of different factories to choose from in Guangzhou and Suzhou. Compared with Guangzhou, Suzhou has a better wedding dress making craft and a smaller minimum order quantity. Manufacturers in Suzhou, like Jusere, are better at crafted and complex wedding dress making. While the advantage of manufacturers in Guangzhou is mainly about the production, and the style is relatively simple.
At last, it should be noted that many merchants usually pay attention to how to find a safe payment method rather than the information of the supplier when they cooperate with Chinese manufacturers at the first time. Actually, it’s unwise to act like this. If the supplier is reliable, the payment method seems not so important.
