4 Ways To Source For Wholesale Urban Clothing


Visitors: 249

Sourcing for wholesale urban clothing is not difficult but getting the best deal is. As retailers, you will want the highest margin possible for your goods so reliable wholesalers with good pricing and quality is important. Here we will discuss the different avenues you can source for wholesale urban clothing and make some comparisons.

Search Engine

The internet is the easiest and fastest way to start off. All you need to do is doing a search in major search engines such as Google, Yahoo or MSN. When you key in “wholesale urban clothing" for example, tons of websites pointing to wholesale urban clothing will be listed. You should visit these sites and get a feel of what is available. Notice I said “get a feel". This process should only be used for research purpose and you should not commit to any purchase yet. Be wary of scam sites which may not be obvious at first glance. Always verify the authenticity of the distributor.


Ebay is another good source of information when you are looking for wholesale urban clothing. You can search by the brand name or generic terms like “ladies top". Always include “wholesale" or “supplier" in your search term to narrow the search. Again, this is for research purpose and distributor information should be verified before doing business with them. One of things you can do is to call up the company to make sure the telephone number is valid and also to get a feel of its professionalism by the way the call was picked up. It is not enough to do just that, you will to drill further on the reputation of that company by doing a search using the company name and look for reviews on it.

Wholesale Directories

Probably the most recommended method. There are many online wholesaler and supplier directories on internet. However, they differ in terms of quality of distributors listed and support. Some directories will list anyone as long as they get paid which is not good. There are, however, good directories with proper reviews on suppliers and one such directory even has a forum where members who are retailers exchange ideas and comment on suppliers they work with. You have a much higher chance of success in finding reliable wholesale urban clothing distributors this way.

Contact Manufacturer

If you have a particular brand name in mind, you can contact the manufacturer and look for the wholesalers around your region. In certain scenarios, a company may have the sole distributorship for a particular brand serving your region and you are obligated to obtain goods from that company. If you are selling the goods on Ebay alone, this will not be a problem. You can choose from any wholesaler around your region as long as the shipping or drop shipping charges do not eat too much into your profit margin.
