I think everyone can feel like that if we deal with suppliers as buyer. some of them already grow big, they don't want to get tired with some small orders. so they always ask high MOQ. but the reason is not completely their fault. As you know, China has become manufacturers of worldwide products. and China has big population. Every material supplier is producing piles of material every day, and many more can't be absorbed in China, most are used for exportation. In order to keep workers, make good profits, they only deal with the wholesalers, small qty No. As you can see, most material shops are also also opened for wholesalers, If they can buy only a little material to make the products, why they are not willing to accept your small orders. We don't accept small orders, don't show that we want to become rich from first orders, ask high moq or high price.
If you want to try suppliers' quality, you can ask suppliers to offer stock item to check their workmanship. sometimes you will meet mid dealers, they haven't good suppliers to support, they ask for high MOQ, high price, it is natural. If you deal with direct manufacturer, our terms, condition more preferential, easy to get low MOQ, and our aim is really win-win as you said. some suppliers good, some suppliers not so good, that 's same as person, somebody nice, sombody urgly. but it is not related to the whole china, the nationality.
so you need take special patience. because suppliers too many, it is not easy to meet good quality supplier. Once you meet, you can make good money. won't think like that.
