Wholesale Clothing – Wholesale Clothing for Startups

Updated on September 25, 2011

Wholesale selling involves selling in bulks. Retailing is selling in ones and twos. Being a wholesale seller means your customers are retailers, who pick clothing from you in bulks to resell in retail. Sourcing wholesale clothing from the right manufacturer or distributor is the key to being successful in this line of business. You add your profits and resell.

You could either sell all kinds of clothing be it men’s wear, ladies clothing, kids wear etc. or you could just focus on one line of clothing. This greatly depends on your knowledge of clothing, fashion and interest.

Having decided what clothing you would deal with the next step is to identify manufacturers and distributors who could cater to your requirements. This often is a tedious process and the time spent on it would be worth it. You could use the Internet to make your search easier. Once you have decided upon some suppliers, you could visit their warehouses to check on the quality of their clothing and what they have to offer. You need to get a good picture of the purchases you need to make from the distributors in terms of the minimum orders you need to place, policies about returning goods, their guarantees on quality, shipping time etc.

You could also visit some of your would be competitors to check out on the range of clothing they have on offer. You could check out their pricing and ordering policies, minimum order, shipping etc. You could check the quality of the clothing and their pricing. Pricing your goods right is very crucial.

You also need to visit retailers to introduce your business and build a relationship. You could also enquire about the type of clothing that is selling fast. This would be an ongoing affair once you have set up your wholesale clothing business. Your visits often should be backed by samples of the latest trends and the pricing of your various other offerings and you should be prepared to take orders from them for fresh supplies.

Identify hot selling products and start off your business with just a few products. Expand your line of products as your profits increase and your capacity in handling a greater line of products. Clearing your old stock and bringing in newer ones with changing times in a very orderly fashion is the key to being successful.
