Hello all. I wanted your collective advice on something: I am just starting importing from China and have contacted a number of manafacturers regarding their products and about samples - most suppliers tend to have a modest arrangement for this I.e. slightly higher cost per unit etc (I can fully understand this). I just received an e-mail from one supplier who has quoted 50usd per unit (at MOQ the cost per unit is circa 4usd). This feels very expensive to me - the caveat is that they will take the cost off your first order. The point of a sample is to determine if you would feel the quality is something you’d want to sell, so spending 230usd on three samples of items costing 4usd seems a huge outlay. My question is: A. do you all think this is reasonable? B. Are there any standard patterns of sample vs bulk order prices that you are aware of and that I should be aware of? Thank you in advance.
