If a manufacturing factory in China says they can do something, make them prove it by having them supply samples of their past work as it relates to your product manufacturing requirements. After a down payment is made, you should ask a sample proof of your product.
Some busy manufacturers in China seem to think that speed and volume are reasonable substitutes for quality. They are not, and you should be extremely clear that quality is what you value above all else. When pushing for quality production it will take more time to receive your finished product. However, the time it takes to throw out and pay for your last order because of quality issues and then correct and re-order will take more time.
Manufacturing 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.
