Using SaleHoo to Find Manufacturers

Finding Manufacturers with SaleHoo: Finding trusted manufacturers to help bring your product ideas to life.

Finding the right manufacturer to source your product or produce your product idea is crucial to your business’ success. Manufacturers control your product’s cost, quality, packaging and shipping.

Using SaleHoo Directory’s advanced search tools can help you find the manufacturer that is right for your business.The following is a guide on how you can make this happen.

Let’s say you’re looking for a manufacturer that sells sunglasses. Start by doing a keyword search for “sunglasses” and narrow down your results by selecting “manufacturer” under the “Supplier Type” filter. Select any other filters that you may want to include to help narrow down your search. You can choose supplier type, select locations, ships worldwide, minimum order, and whether a tax ID is required.

Notice that the filtered search request has returned 4,959 different items and 70 suppliers. You can browse through all of the product photos and pick the item that most interests you. From there you’ll be taken to the suppliers profile page. You can also select the “Suppliers’ tab to the right of the ‘Products’ tab to only view suppliers, which can help narrow down your search further.

Once you’ve found a supplier that interests you, it’s time to do a little research and contact them to gather information around product design requirements, shipping fee estimates, sample costs, freight forwarding arrangements, price negotiations and so on.

We provide you with the phone numbers and emails of suppliers, and have even recently launched a new chat feature where you can chat directly with available suppliers. This provides a perfect way to keep in touch with suppliers while you are on the go.
