Some of you have given great responses and as a newbie thats exactly what I need! I dont want to know the exact supplier with their email address, but a little guidance as to where to look and what to look for would be helpful (and not just google!). I had no clue how to even go about searching for suppliers in china! Having been told about alibaba alone has been a huge step.
Also knowing about minimums and how much of a risk it is to do business overseas is helpful. Suggesting group buys is great too.
Next time someone asks about suppliers dont get so defensive and maybe share some of this basic info. (For newbies this info isnt always common knowledge)
Us newbies dont want to take over anyones business but would appreciate a little guidance at times
I am wondering if maybe wording it differently will help newbies when they ask about supplies. I know it is hard since newbies dont have all of the proper terminology when they are just getting started.
Instead of where do you get your supplies try asking if anyone wholesales on here and if so can you direct me to your site. ??? That might get you better responses.
