ODM Stuffed Toys Choose Trading Company or Manufacturer

Ten years ago, most of the traditional factories served trading companies, but most of the profits were taken away by the trading companies. Although the profits of these factories are exploited, they don't want to change.

As a toy factory, Chaoman although maintained a good cooperative relationship with some trading companies, but from the factory's point of view, we prefer to have direct access to customers. Because in this way we can provide high-quality stuffed toys, get bulk orders, and higher profits.

Chaoman is a plush toy manufacturer. We have provided manufacturing services for many foreign trade companies. We also produce plush toys or pet toys for direct customers. From a plush toy company's point of view, we have its own rational analysis in the question of choosing a trading company or a manufacturer.

Trading companies and manufacturers have their own advantages, but I think dealing with manufacturers is suitable for most end buyers. In this article, you will learn the difference between a trading company and a manufacturer. But choose them need according to your own situation.

Advantages of Trading Company

Through contacting with trading company, we became familiar with the team matching and personnel responsibilities of trading companies. We were always curious before, why the business of the trading company has been very good, and why the customer does not directly choose the factory to cooperate. The following are some advantages analysis I gave, these are also the disadvantages of the manufacturer factory.

  • Language communication skills

Language communication ability is the biggest advantage of trading companies. Because trading companies do not produce plush toys, most of their energy is on serving customers. They can speak foreign languages, which enables them to understand customer needs faster and make changes.

  • Rich customer acquisition channels

One example, as a customer who want to do teddy bears wholesale business, I need different kinds of teddy bears with custom logo. so the first thing I do is search online for "teddy bear manufacturer" or "Teddy bear stuffed animal" . You will find a plush soft toy factory claiming to be a factory on Google, but they are actually a trading company.

Another example, if I am the purchasing manager of a supermarket chain. I want to buy some Stuffed wild animals, I will also search online for companies that can provide me with services, or I will also participate in the Canton Fair. Trading company do ADs on facebook instagram tiktok youtube twitter. So from these two examples, it can be seen that the manufacturers cannot promote themselves because of the language communication ability and Internet knowledge issues. This is the limit of a vicious circle.

  • Supply chain capability

 A perfect plush toy requires careful investigation and analysis from conceptual design to detailed design. Different fabrics have the same design but the final effect is different. This requires not only the manufacturer plush and high-quality plush, but also a An excellent supply chain helps to achieve different customization needs.

Because trading companies can not provide production capacity, they need to obtain the cooperation of factories in different upstream and downstream industrial chains. So their supply chain resources are very strong.

They also have resources for labels, tags, cartons, PE bags, toys gifts cards, logistics and transportation.

Advantages of Manufacturer

Most of the advantages of the trading company mentioned above are the disadvantages of the factory, but the advantages of the factory are the disadvantages of the trading company. There needs to be a balance between them, and you cannot have a perfect solution.

  • Competitive price

Working directly with the factory you will get a quote quickly, because the factory has a lot of production experience. The price cannot be calculated by computer. Different products have different processes and different production time periods. The prices estimated by trading companies using software are not accurate.

Working directly with the manufacturer you will complete your order with high quality at a competitive price. The bigger the order quantity, the cheaper the price.

  • Sample making capability

Facotry always established their own proofing team, which can complete the production and modification of samples in a short period of time. As a custom plush toy manufacturer, we always know customizing stuffed animals or pet toys is a difficult thing. Because the sample needs to go through countless changes from the plush design to the final sample, which is a team work of at least 5 people.

The factory has seen countless samples, this is the biggest advantage of cooperating with the factory, they know what kind of products are popular and what is the next fashion trend, so they can give you countless product ideas in cooperation with the factory, you just need Provide a concept and they can help you design it.

  • Production management experience

If you want to design team mascots for your company, if you want to mass-produce your stuffed toys, whether these products are Stuffed sea animals or Stuffed wild animals, the factory is the only person who can help you get the project off the ground.

The factory has IOS9001, BSCI, SEDEX, ICTI certification, these management systems can ensure that your order is shipped on time, which is especially important in some festive toy products projects.
