Hello everyone!
Need suggestions about online wholesale business.
I own clothing factories in China,want to extend business to internet,worldwide.
I have less known and inferior brand,but quality is really good,price is very low.
just plan to build a website,wholesale polos shirt,tee shirt,jeans.But I have no idea if US,UK consumers can accept these products,since they are not brand-name ones.
Please take a look in the products:

100% cotton,Wholesale price:$3/pcs

wholesale price:$12

wholesale price:$7.5
Above are FOB price without shipping fee.

Someone can give your opinion?Is it possible to do this business?If I can wholesale at least 100pcs daily I will do it.Thanks.
Waiting for your suggestions.

hi,there is one more thing we need to consider,the shipping.
I have calculated the shipping cost,if ship 100 pcs in one package,the shipping fee will be $2 each pcs.
If you send a single pcs as sample,shipping fee will be $23.It is expensive because it is from China to the US or UK.Of course if buy 10,000 pcs we can ship by sea,container,container shipping will be much lower.
Pls let me know what do you think.$5 for a polo,expensive or cheap?

Depends on the polo.

Are you wanting to wholesale? Most of the people on this board are end consumers.

you may find yourself much better off by signing into a liscensing agreement with one of the big american labels.

Thank you guys,if end consumers can spend $10-20 to buy such polos the business should be ok.The quality is the same as Ralph lauren.etc,only not brand label. If customer require,we can put his labels.

It is easy for us to put customer's labels,it only request little extra fee to make the labels and put them on clothes.

I can't tell if he meant they would put on RL logos for a customer (bad) or if they would put on the customer's logo for that customer (good, except I don't want logos).

$5 for a polo at RL quality level sounds really good (and it looks nice in the picture). A seller could mark up 2-4x and still have a great price for consumers...if the quality is there.

he wants to wholesale. Its an average price of $5, but I dont think he will be selling single pieces. More like lots of 100.

he isnt saying he will put RL labels, he'll put the label of the store or brand who is buying wholesale from him. Its like contract manufacturing.

You are right,that's waht I want to say.
We will not put RL rabels as it is not legal.

Well, then as I said,

If the quality is there, that is an amazing price as far as I can tell...now you just have to find someone willing to sell them (and I will then buy one from them)
