How About the lead time?
The whole leading time varies slightly depending on its product attributes, specific details of parts, and estimated quantities. But more often than not, the lead time is approximately from 5 days to 30 days or so.If they keep components in stock, then the leading time can always be shortened into one week. But keep in mind that you might be replaced by your competitors if you don’t move fast. When it comes to the lead time, a very important factor should be considered. That’s the deposit. Please remember that, Chinese suppliers won’t start purchasing materials until the deposit hits on their bank account.
How about the MOQ?
Yeah, you might have heard Yiwu market accepts a small MOQ. But does it really happen there? It depends. You might come across a supplier who accepts 1 carton only, but at the next storefront, chances are that you get stung by the hefty MOQ requirement. But why? The answer lies in whether they have the off-the-shelf stock or not. If they have the off-the-shelf item, they will accept the 1 carton MOQ, but remember that Chinese suppliers are happy to do small business, but they won’t make themselves to. On the contrary, if they have not any stock, the supplier will ask for a higher MOQ, because they need to produce it even make moulds, draw specific designs, and such stuff. It’s a money and time consuming process. What’s more, their subcontractors have their own MOQ requirement. When we pool those together, the final MOQ comes as no surprise.
What if my order can’t reach a container volume?
Don’t worry about that. Yiwu market has developed a special global logistics system. Find a agent, and let them deal with all those hassles. They help you prepare necessary documents and consolidate your cargo with many other buyers’ into one container. Send your goods to the designated warehouse, and one month later, your goods will arrive at your side safely. At the same time, buyers share the sea freight together. It saves you a lot of money.
