Wholesale Camping Gear From China Online

Sourcing on Alibaba

When it comes to finding Chinese suppliers, most importers usually think of Alibaba. After all, it is the largest B2B website in China. Many people are always confused and dizzy when looking for factories. There are too many suppliers on the site. You must be able to recognize outdoor equipment manufacturers and trading companies.

There are some tips you should know when you are looking for camping equipment suppliers. Often, many factories have only one production line, which forces them to specialize rather than produce a variety of products. As a result, it is not possible for a company to produce many types of outdoor products.

For example, a few factories can produce tents and sleeping bags. In addition, they can also produce other outdoor products. If you find many product categories in an Alibaba store, then it is usually a trading company.

Some factories make their own products and buy others to sell with them. You have to ask more suppliers to compare prices.

A factory that makes sleeping bags also buys tents and beach umbrellas. It acts as a middleman. The sleeping bag may be cheaper, but other products may not be. You’ll have to ask other factories to do price comparisons.

Sourcing on DHgate, AliExpress

Do you want to buy camping equipment at a low price from China, but not for business? For example, your company organizes outdoor activities and needs to buy lots of camping gear. It may also be necessary to buy some outdoor products as gifts for employees.

In this case, you can go to DHgate and AliExpress to find some online stores. They have a small order quantity and a wide range of products.

If you want to import camping gear from China for business and want to maintain a good sales relationship, I wouldn’t recommend DHgate and AliExpress. It’s difficult to guarantee the quality of the products you purchase. Most of them are middlemen who purchase from different factories or trading companies. They can’t guarantee the quality of your goods.

If you buy 300 tents at wholesale price on Alibaba, there is no problem. However, if you also want to purchase 300 buttons’ tents that the supplier doesn’t produce, you can ask your tent supplier to help you buy 300 buttons’ tents from other places.
