Most people spend a significant part of their monthly income on clothes and denim clothes are popular worldwide because they are durable and relatively low cost compared to other fabrics, which get torn quickly. There are a large number of offline and online stores who would like to stock denim clothing, however finding a supplier can be difficult. Smaller stores also cannot afford to directly import container loads of clothes. Hence a website selling wholesale denim clothing online at a reasonable rate is likely to find a large number of customers if it is able to find reliable manufacturers and suppliers.
The first step in setting up an ecommerce website selling wholesale denim clothing is to find a reliable manufacturer or supplier of denim clothing locally or from other countries. The denim clothing supplier should have his or her own manufacturing, design facilities and be able to increase production as required, depending on the demand for denim clothing. The online wholesale denim clothing store may either provide designs to the manufacturer depending on the latest fashion trends in the market or use the different denim clothing designs available with the manufacturer for marketing.
The wholesale denim clothing store owner should do some market research contacting online and offline retailers of clothing to gauge the demand for the denim clothes, the price range, designs and sizes which are selling well. The denim clothing store owner can contact the retailers either personally or sending mailers to them or using social media. After the research has been completed, the wholesale denim clothing store should try to get some orders from the retailers, offering them prices which are lower than the prices they are getting from their existing supplier.
In a few cases, the wholesale denim clothing store can offer drop shipping option to retailers so that they do not have to worry about keeping inventory and storage space. The inventory and demand for the different designs of denim clothing should be monitored closely to maximize the profit made, and prevent stockpiling of clothes which are not in demand. The website should be updated with the latest products available and quality photos of the clothes so that the retailers can place orders accordingly. Periodic sales can help get rid of slow moving inventory. Free or highly discounted shipping on orders above a specific value will encourage the retailers to place large orders for wholesale denim clothing at the website.
