HOW TO BUY?
The suppliers in those wholesale jewelry markets normally are not good at English. Some of the big factories may hire some staff know English but for most of the suppliers, they do not have English salesman, or just know little English, cannot communicate well enough. This may not be an issue with selecting jewelry which depends on quality and price.
However, after the buying trip finished. You will find out, those styles you picked from several, or even dozens of suppliers take you too much time to follow up.
So how to follow all those orders, make sure the mass production produce as required, the sticker or package are right, the goods meet the standard?
Then you will need to hire an agent to take care of everything. Better hire someone experienced and professional, to avoid paying for mistakes. Or at least, have a better chance to win.
I have been working in this field since 2010, helped my US client to develop a line of jewelry from zero to 145 SKUs per season.
I already know well many suppliers, has good knowledge with production line, packing process, and how to inspect the mass production. I hope with my help to ensure supply, you focus on picking the styles, and sell at your end, we can grow business together.
