Manufacturing product deposits and down payments for product production can be negotiated with manufacturers, particularly when it comes to payment terms. For example a deposit of 50 percent on your molds is enough to show a factory you’re serious and encourage them to send a sample of your product for your inspection.
Always try and promote a positive sales vision of the future by letting your enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit shine through to your production source. This will let your manufacturer know that you’re a serious U.S. partner. A Chinese manufacturer will be more eager to partner with you, even if you’re just starting off very small, if you can demonstrate that you have a professional and positive vision beyond just one order.
Just because your last manufacturing shipment was great doesn’t mean you can relax. Always explicitly demand perfect quality with each subsequent shipment. Don’t become complacent or allow your manufacturer to start cutting corners.
Manufacturing in China can reduce your product cost per unit.
