Quality Guarantee

The quality of the goods purchased by customers will be guaranteed. Taking apparel products as an example, we will check the materials used, the firmness of the fabric, the cleanliness, and the craftsmanship, and give customers timely feedback on quality inspection. For products that fail to pass the inspection standards, we will return the products immediately to the supplier and refund the client.

Quantity Guarantee

We will carefully count the number of products and accessories, make timely reissues for missing items, and inform customers of the situation in time. If the replenishment takes too long and the customer has no intention of continuing to purchase, we will refund the customer directly to reduce his loss.

Description Guarantee

To prevent the actual products from being inconsistent with the promotional image, we will strictly check the size, color, logo, and design of the products, and try our best to meet customers’ expectations. The product that does not meet the requirements will be explained in detail to the customer. If the customer does not intend to continue buying, we will refund the customer directly.

How the Service Works

For orders that don’t pass our inspection, we will return them to the suppliers. We guarantee that we will 100% refund the clients via their ShopShipShake accounts, and afford the delivery fee caused by the return.

The refund process:

The order fails the Inspection —> ShopShipShake requests a refund from the supplier —> ShopShipShake affords the delivery fee caused by the return —> Our staff of warehouse returns the order —> The supplier receives the returned goods —> The supplier refunds ShopShipShake —> ShopShipShake deposits the money to the clients’ ShopShipShake accounts.

We deeply understand that it is not easy for ShopShipShake users to carry out business activities across oceans. And we sincerely wish you could buy satisfying products on ShopShipShake. We hope that the improvement of quality inspection services will enable you to have a high-quality experience.

Quality Inspection Standards

Quality Inspection

Quality inspection is mainly to check the style, material, and size of products.

• Style conformity. The main concern is whether the style, version, color, collar angle, cuffs, waist, printing, etc. of its products are consistent with the promotional pictures.

• Material. Check the inside and outside of clothes, to see if products are faded, damaged, dyed, or stained.

 Size. Check whether the products’ size is consistent with the promotional materials.

Note: when the product is more than 95% the same as the promotional image (less than 2 differences between product and promotional picture), we consider it qualified.

Quantity Inspection

 The number of products. Check if the quantities of products are consistent with the customer’s order.

 The number of accessories. Check if the product accessories are complete, like shoelaces, shoulder straps, belts, bag straps, etc.

Conditions of Spot Check

For orders with large quantities of goods, we will choose spot check. The following are the specific rules:

Check Ratio

Check RatioFootwear
Apparel (Pieces)Bags & Accessories
100%Under 10Under 10Under 10
30%Above 41Above 41Above 41

Restrictions of the Inspections Services

How to Buy Wholesale Merchandise

Having a successful retail business depends greatly on offering the right product, at the right price, at the right time. Therefore, it is paramount to the success of your business to locate the best sources for those products. Once you know what products or product lines you want to sell, you can then locate the right wholesaler.

Starting Steps to Wholesale Merchandising

Before you buy wholesale merchandise for your store, visit a competitor or a store selling a product line similar to yours. Browse the store’s product selection and note the brands they carry. Try to determine what products are selling well and which are in the clearance bin. If you visit a similar store located too far away geographically to be a competitor, that retailer may be willing to share with you the source of their wholesale merchandise.

Retailers can often find products to sell in their stores by searching online, joining buying groups, using library resources, and attending trade shows or buyers’ markets.

Once your store is open and doing business, it will be easier to find wholesale merchandise to sell because suppliers will solicit you rather than you having to seek them out. Customers can also play a large role in finding suppliers as they can recommend products they would like to see in your store. Building a relationship with customers and seeking their feedback is crucial to ensuring that you are meeting their needs.

Trade Shows as an Information Source

A trade show is one of the best places to find a wholesaler. Retailers can find many suppliers serving the same markets with a range of product offerings. The biggest trade shows are held annually in Las Vegas and California, but there are local trade shows also.

Conduct an online search for tradeshows in your industry to find the nearest event. Websites like Trade Show News Network will have listings for shows happening in most states. However, trade shows are not open to the general public so be prepared to show proof that you are an established business. A resale certificate, tax id, business card, or some other form of license or permit should suffice.

Manufacturer Suppliers

Some manufacturers will sell their products at wholesale prices directly to the retailer. If they do, they may sell their products in large quantities or at a high minimum order. If you have a particular product you want to sell, contact the manufacturer and ask if they sell directly to dealers. If not, ask what distributors they sell their products through so you know where to buy the items.

Buying From Importers

Globalization has made importing products much easier. Retailers can purchase from importers or buy the products directly from a foreign company. Before using this type of supplier, do your homework. It is important to understand all the aspects of the paperwork, shipping time, product lifecycle, and all of the costs involved.

Distributors as Suppliers

A distributor generally sells a large variety of a certain classification of products. They must make a profit too, so their prices may be slightly higher than if the item was purchased directly from the manufacturer. Retailers can buy lower quantities with little or no minimum order. Some even offer free freight on orders over a certain amount.

Wholesalers and Liquidators

In searching for products at wholesale prices, you may find wholesalers that don’t sell just one type of merchandise but many different products. Some wholesalers will act as liquidators and will sell closeouts, truckloads, and pallets of merchandise and even damaged goods. Before buying wholesale merchandise from this type of supplier, be sure you completely understand the condition, price, and terms of the sale.

Buying at Auctions

Retailers can find many bargains on eBay, the world’s largest auction site. Just browse the Wholesale Lots category according to the type of store you have and you’ll find tons of merchandise. Not all product prices on eBay are truly wholesale, but if you spend time watching the auctions and learn how to buy effectively, you are sure to find a deal. Don’t miss out on live auctions for bargains on merchandise for resale.

Choosing a Vendor

Once you’ve located several sources of products, evaluate each vendor on a variety of factors. To offer the best merchandise to your customers, you’ll need to buy from someone offering quality products, reliable delivery, and superior customer service. This information can be gathered through references, marketing materials, or by simply asking the sales representative how they conduct business.

Price and Other Considerations

One of your primary considerations, as you start your wholesale business, will center around price. Keep accurate records and review them regularly to track your costs and the prices you set to sell your goods. Stability exists when average prices are constant over time, or when they are rising at a very low and predictable rate. The retail price of a good or product is the cost when it is sold to the end-user for consumption and not for resale through a third-party distribution channel. While costs are a primary concern, there are other items you will need to consider as well.


Consider the space you lease for the selling of goods to consumers. When it comes to business, retailers have one overall goal, to sell merchandise—hopefully at a profit. That’s why they focus on sales floor space, adequate parking for customers, and an overall image that draws in customers. Think about your hours of operation or business hours. This is the time of operation when the retail store is open to the public for the purchase of goods. Your hours of operation should match the buying habits of your customers.

Shipping Options

This is the cost to the consumer to deliver goods. Generally, retail outlets ship by FedEx, UPS, and USPS (the least expensive and least common). The cost varies by location, product size, and how quickly the consumer wants the product. Some upscale boutiques will messenger goods.

Customer Payment and Conditions

Consider how convenient your payment system is and if you need a policy for processing refunds and returns. Also, think about any terms you may set for higher-priced items such as lay-away. These plans should be as clear to your customers as they are to you.

Customer Service

No two retail stores have identical customer service. To provide excellent customer service you need to get the desired item into the customer’s hand, give them the tools they need to decide to purchase quickly and enable them to purchase without effort.

Handling Returned Merchandise

Some returned goods will be resold by the same retailer for the full cost, but many will not. More likely, they’ll end up in the mark-down bin selling for a fraction of the cost. Try to avoid returns in the first place by doing everything you can to make sure the customer is satisfied. Provide as much information as you can upfront regarding your products.

Good Planning Equals Good Results

Don’t get discouraged. It may take some time, research, and several vendor negotiations to find the best merchandise to sell in your retail store. Starting any business will not happen overnight, but nothing beats being an independent business person. Finally, as a new business person, be sure you have an understanding of the laws in your state for your type of retail business and also understand how to go about filing and paying your taxes on your merchandising storefront.
