I had a question regarding requesting modifications to a product. So I am currently in the process of receiving samples from multiple sources overseas to determine if their products are ones that I may like to work with. After receiving my samples, I was planning on send out information to lets say the 3 top choices regarding how I want the product to be modified in order to get updated quotes with the modifications built in. My concern is with the suppliers that I don’t choose possibly taking the modification ideas and producing it themselves or hijacking my listing once it is up. Just wondering if this is a legitimate concern and what anyone else would do to try to avoid that. Also, for the supplier that I choose to make the modifications, is there any way to have them only make the modified product exclusively for me? My concern is that once it is on amazon, others will try to source the same product. thanks for the help in advance.
that’s my plan as I am modifying a product that is already being sold on amazon that’s doing pretty well. The mods are to separate me from the competition but just wanted to know if/how to protect myself from a supplier from copying my idea and private labeling it themselves.
Chinese will never honor any contract. Just protect your amazon listing. If there is competition, buy from them and report / compare pictures showing amazon that its not the same or show amazon your trademark and that your competition is infringing.
