Negotiating Sample Price Alibaba

QuestionsNegotiating Sample Price Alibaba
Stan asked 4 weeks ago

Hey,
I have a supplier who offers a decent price on a product but he asked $240 for a sample (adding shipping price it will be around $300) saying that they need to make it according to my dimensions. The product is a small set so the price seems really high.
What would you do in this case?

Hi,
 
Yes I think that is a really high price, if that is just a default product. If the sample will be customized (your logo, branding or whatever customization) then that price is normal.
 
I would just tell him that other suppliers are charging a normal price for their samples (max $50) and that if he wants to considered as a supplier he should lower his sample price. It is impossible to try out 5 different samples at $300 per piece.
