We say Yiwu is the largest small commodities wholesale market, it opens to everyone from every corner in the world. But we cannot be sure people will happy if you come to Yiwu for this.
If you want to go shopping cheap items in Yiwu
Yiwu is a sea of small commodities, a sale base and distribution center. People come here because of millions kinds of cheap goods. But if you just want to go shopping buy one or two pieces then you come to the wrong place. Yiwu is a paradise for wholesalers but not for shoppers. The actual "paradise of shoppers" should be HK or Shanghai, Yiwu is definitely not on that list. Even for Yiwu locals, they will also shopping online or go to night market for bargain
If you cannot accept over one carton MOQ
Yiwu market is not fit in a small shop owner. Coming to China from other countries may very costly, involving accommodation and food. If the quantity you need is so small that you cannot accept even over one carton may not good for both you and dealers here. So it is better for to buy it from your local wholesalers.
Unless the products what you want to has a really good profit and totally new to your local market. But that indeed need lots of luck.
If you only want stock
We say may 90% products in Yiwu market needs to be customized and the products in Yiwu flow and update quickly. The things they displayed in the store are just samples which mostly you cannot buy them. It will spend you more than half a month to deliver it. There won’t be so much stock and prepare for you to take it right now. In that case, online stock is a good choice for you. If you interested you can check stock shoes
In a word, Yiwu is better for people who have buying ability. Anyway, Yiwu welcome anyone interested in it. There are lots of opportunities waiting for you!
