Online Supplier Directories
These directories aim to ease the task of finding suppliers for your products. They often contain a list of thousands of suppliers that you can access for free or with a paid fee, depending on the website. Three of the most popular online directories are Connect2India, Yelu and Huntbiz.
Once you’ve compiled a list of potential suppliers you are interested in working with, the next step is to better investigate these suppliers and their products’ quality before sending over a large investment. Working with a reputable third-party quality control partner can help you choose the most reliable supplier and reduce the risk of loss due to quality issues.
