Finding trusted suppliers
Finding trusted suppliers that won’t scam you can be tricky, but we’ve dealt with so many that we’ve boiled it down to a few key steps:
Contact the supplier and verify their address
Legit wholesale suppliers will list their contact information and address on their site, so make sure they are real contacts who you can talk to.
Check your supplier’s reputation and track record
Find out how many years they have been in operation. If possible, speak with some of their existing clients to find out if they are reliable.
Purchase and inspect their products
Never use a supplier without receiving a sample product first. Check the packaging, product quality, and care of handling. Drive out to the manufacturing site if possible.
Test their customer support
Your supplier is your partner; Ask them questions early and often to see how quickly they respond. If they aren’t fast or don’t give high-quality answers, you may need to find someone else.
