Usually our MOQ is 600 pcs per color per style, but to support start up business, we are flexible to accept order no less than 100pcs/color/style while 20% to 50% UPCHARGE will be applied. However, if the total yearly volume is big enough, we will evaluate the business as a full package.
As price agreement is a very key factor to our cooperation, we insist to do a costing exercise based on customer’s old styles or we can also send you our price list with some regular styles we produced before as a reference.
