If you’re looking for a popular, inexpensive item to add to your store’s stock, wholesale Italian charms are a great choice!
One of the best ways of obtaining Italian charms is through wholesale. You’ll reduce the cost of purchasing the charms and increase your profit margin on these highly popular items, which could have a very good effect when it comes to balancing the books.
The easiest way to find an Italian charm wholesaler is by searching online. Look on more than one search engine for the best results; use MSN and Yahoo as well as Google for results that aren’t listed on all search engines. A simple search for “wholesale Italian charms” will probably yield many leads for you to pursue.
You can also use the internet to find local charms dealers and retailers. A search for “Italian charms” plus your city name will turn up many retailers of Italian charms that you can then visit to inspect the quality of a particular brand of charms before buying them yourself.
Once you have found the brand you want and a wholesaler, you must ask the prospective supplier some questions to ensure a smooth transaction that you will both be satisfied with.
1. What pricing options are available?
When buying wholesale, different levels of discounts are often offered. You will usually receive a higher discount when you purchase a greater quantity, but keep practicality in mind. Will you be able to sell all the charms you get before the trend dies down? If not, consider teaming up with another business person to order; you’ll each get the number of charms you want at a better rate than if you’d bought them separately.
2. What condition are they in?
Used charms can be found at very appealing prices, but make sure the merchandise will be in equally appealing condition for customers to buy.
3. Will you get a warranty? If so, does it cost extra?
Sometimes, warranties are available, and they’re always worth looking into, at least. That way, if you end up receiving a bad batch and customers become unhappy, you can refund them and not lose out.
4. Are they high quality?
Ask them to confirm that “stainless steel charms” are indeed stainless steel, and if so, what grade it is. Any wholesaler should know, particularly ones that state they “sell direct”. An example of a stainless steel grade is 304. If they’re “18kt gold charms”, make sure that it’s solid gold and not gold-tone. See if the charms have epoxy to protect them from rubbing off. Do your research before purchasing your charms, so you have a better idea whether they’re known to have problems or not. Also you’ll find that nearly all Italian charms are manufactured in China. The charms that claim to be imported from Italy originated in China too!
Once you’ve ask your questions and you’re satisfied that you’re getting a good deal on high quality, genuine charms, go ahead and order them from the wholesaler.
