NEED HELP! How can I purchase wholesale clothing for low $ directly from the manufacturer?**?
From the details of your Q, I really cannot tell if you just want to buy the clothes at an inexpensive price for your own personal use OR if you are buying them to go into business. For your business: You have to buy in quantity – cases at a time. Many times each year. For you, your family’s & friends’ personal use: You have to buy in quantity – cases at a time. You could google “clothing importers” or “clothing manufacturers.” Or “women’s apparel importers” [or exporters] Thanks for asking your Q! I enjoyed answering it! I wish you well! VTY, Ron Berue Yes, that is my real last name!
You on the right path by sourcing your inventory directly from the supplier. So many direction you can take this business the possibilities is endless, but before I even venture out of country I would start with local supplier and build the business, then I would venture overseas when I think I have enough funds. I’m not sure what type of clothing you are looking for but I would start with kids clothing are make kids clothing a big part of my inventory. Reason is that kids grow out clothing faster than adult so you will have many more return customer for kids than adult. Kids clothing got a longer shelf life than adult clothing, most young adult dont want anything more than a year old. In any case, the ultimate goal is to source your inventory overseas, below you will find links that will give your more info on what you are looking for.
I found an awesome site that provides almost anything that you can think of to sell online or in your own shop, etc. They charge you a one time membership fee of $79.00 BUT IT’S WELL WORTH IT! There were direct links on this site to the factories and the prices were unbelievable. For example I bought authentic NFL Reebok jerseys for $18.00. The same jerseys sell for over $100 in the stores. Some of the OTHER products available were: ipods, mp3/4 players, handbags, clothing, jewelry, furniture, gifts, etc. You name it they provide links to buy it right. They also HAS a directory of dropshippers. These are wholesalers that will ship your order straight to your customers. As far as your customers are concerned they think that you shipped it. By using dropshippers you don’t have to have any inventory or even pay for the items until you receive the money from your customer.
