I have a question. I am in the middle of negotiating with a potential supplier in China right now, and I’ve already bought a sample from them, and I think it’s pretty good. I’d like to buy a small quantity of 20 units which is in their next MOQ price “bracket” (1,10,50,100,etc,..) to test the waters and mitigate my risk, but they won’t let me order anything less than 50. Is this normal/ reasonable? How should I negotiate this?
So I bought a bunch of samples from different suppliers, chose one I liked best and ordered a test order of 300 quantity. Selling that out now and in the mean time that supplier turned out to be a dud so sourced a second supplier the same way, modified my product and now awaiting receipt of a second, larger order.
