The wholesale jeans business is always overcrowded in the major clothing wholesale markets in Guangzhou.
Because denim is wear-resistant, stain-resistant, and stylish, the wholesale jeans business in China is growing steadily every year. According to incomplete statistics, China produces more than 2.5 billion pieces of denim clothing every year.
Along with the renewal and development of denim, the output of denim clothing is increasing all over the world.
According to the data, in Europe, almost 50% of people wear denim in public. And in the Netherlands, 58% of people wear denim. 46% of people wear denim in Germany. However, 42% of people in France prefer to wear denim. America has the most denim wearers in the world because almost everyone has 5 to 10 or more.
In short, denim apparel will become indispensable content in the lives of consumers around the world.
Due to the high demand for jeans, the number of businessmen coming to China every year to purchase/import jeans denim garments has also increased. Guangzhou’s major wholesale clothing markets are full of foreigners, and the annual bi-seasonal Canton Fair in Guangzhou always has more customers sourcing apparel than other industries.

3, Will the suppliers interested in small quantities?
In general, wholesalers have stocks in the warehouse.
Therefore, the requirements for the minimum order quantity are not high. If a single purchase can cover all sizes, it can reach the minimum order quantity.
For example, a women’s denim short, their sizes are 1-3-5-7-9-11-13, you take one piece of each size, then a total of 7 pieces, that is the minimum order quantity of this item.
However, if some models are not in stock and need to place orders at the factory, the minimum order quantity will be bigger.
4. Can wholesalers in the market do OEM orders?
Many wholesalers in the market are middlemen, but almost all of them say that they are factories. Even if you place an OEM order for him, they will also take it and guarantee no problems.
In fact, most of the wholesalers in the market are just trading companies, they do not understand the professional production knowledge of products; only a small part are real factories, then they understand products and technology.
Therefore, if you want to make your private label products, then you need to find the right supplier and find a supplier who understands the production technology.

5. How to control product quality?
The products purchased in the wholesale market are generally finished products that are shipped directly from the warehouse.
Therefore, product quality control is mainly through random sampling.
Take the purchase of jeans as an example.
Before shipping, random sampling is taken for the packaged goods to check whether the bulk goods are consistent with the sample, whether the quantity is correct, and whether the color and size are the same as the order. Finally, pay attention to whether it is damaged or not.
If it is an OEM order, which is produced and shipped in the factory, then it is necessary to control the quality from the start of the factory production.
At this time, the quality inspection is divided into three parts: pre-inspection, inline-process inspection, and pre-shipment inspection.
Of course, the most convenient way of quality control is to outsource it to a professional quality control company or a purchasing agent.

6、How to deliver when time is urgent?
Many foreigners who come to the wholesale market for purchasing are on short-term visas, a tourist visa for a week or so.
After the purchase in the market is completed by placing an order, the time to back home is up.
Therefore, the supplier can’t contact the customer and many goods are not ready to be delivered.
This problem is very well solved.
Before all foreigners come to China to make purchases, they will contact a shipping agent who is responsible for transporting the customer’s goods from China to the destination country. The shipping agent will have its warehouse and can store the goods for free for the customer. So the supplier’s goods can be delivered directly to the shipping agent’s warehouse.
Some sourcing agents also have their warehouses, where they can collect all orders from customers and load them together for shipment. The advantage of purchasing agents is that they can help customers to keep track of the progress of purchase orders and control the quality of goods, which can save more time and effort for customers.
7. What are the payment methods?
The most common payment methods in the wholesale market are cash, bank transfer, online transfer, etc.
Many merchants in the wholesale market are small companies, and the most common method of payment is cash. If you pay in USD or CNY, they will love it.
(click to see the difference between Paypal and Alipay)
There are more and more payment methods now, and there are corresponding solutions for large purchases and small wholesale purchase payments.
The wholesale of jeans is generally a small payment, you can communicate with the supplier about the payment method before placing the order.
From the above problems, we can easily see that it is not difficult to buy wholesale jeans in China. As long as you have a qualified purchasing agent, every problem can be solved.
But there is another problem here:
Purchasing agents problem
1, The purchasing agent is not familiar with the market.
The sourcing agent faces a variety of customers and purchases a variety of different products. They may not be familiar with jeans or professionals; also they are not familiar with the jeans market in Guangzhou.
Maybe he can take you to find the wholesale market in Guangzhou. But many agents do not know which area of the market the jeans section is in.
Due to the unfamiliarity with the product and the market, the purchasing agent will waste a lot of your time and energy.
2, Jeans quality control requires professional knowledge and experience.
For jeans purchased in the wholesale market, quality inspection is relatively easy.
Because the sample has been confirmed before placing the order, the quality check before shipment is mainly to detect whether the bulk goods are the same as the sample.
The main aspects are as follows.
Quantity: For the quality inspection, the right quantity delivered is the first of all step.
Style: Confirm that the bulk goods are the sample as the samples, to avoid mixing different products into the goods.
Color: Confirm the color of the goods according to the customer’s requirements.
Size and ratio: Different customers have different requirements for size and ratio, so we should strictly check whether the size and ratio of the bulk goods are the same as the order requirements.
Packaging requirements: Due to the characteristics of the mode of transport, the guests have their own packaging requirements, and the supplier needs to pack the goods according to the buyers.
This is to avoid damaging the goods in the process of transportation.
For factory OEM orders, quality control is required from the denim fabric until the product is packaged and shipped in containers for quality inspection.
Seemingly simple wholesale jeans, from finding the right wholesale market, purchasing the right jeans, to the product quality control, and the transportation, every link needs to be very careful. If any one part goes wrong, the buyer will lose money and time.
If you are a jeans importer or a wholesaler, or if you also have such purchasing confusion and want to wholesale jeans from China, in that way, finding a suitable purchasing agent will save a lot of time and effort.
And maybe you like a local purchasing agent in Guangzhou to help you with the purchase of jeans, you don’t have to come to Guangzhou, the better way is to contact me.
