DHgate is good for small orders, so if you want to buy some samples first, or buy wholesale party supplies in small quantities first, then he is your best choice. And the more you buy, the more you save.

Global Sources is a well-known Chinese wholesale website that is a one-stop platform for all your sourcing needs. Like DHgate and Alibaba, it serves as an online wholesale marketplace that connects sellers with sellers and provides transaction security.

It is also a trade show facilitator, where you can clearly check and learn about all the trade shows in China. However, here, you can not buy directly, you need to send a request for quotation like a supplier, then communicate and negotiate with the party supplies suppliers on price, delivery, payment, etc., and finally confirm the order.

Made-in-China is one of the oldest Chinese wholesale websites, and I believe many of you know it as an online wholesale website where you can find the right party supplies directly and confirm your order directly with the supplier.

Is Made-in-China safe? Please be assured that it has a payment mechanism and they will pay the seller only when the buyer confirms the receipt in the backend. So once you have any problems, you can appeal like the platform, which greatly guarantees your interests.

AliExpress is the largest B2C website under Alibaba, and also a B2B wholesale website. Similar to DHgate, if you want to purchase party products in small quantities or purchase samples of party products first, then this is a site you can consider and learn about.

You can order directly from the platform, and if you buy more, you can also get a better price. Of course, then you need to buy a small number of wholesale party supplies, you better contact the store directly to get the best price.

How to order party supplies with China manufacturer

Once you have found the right Chinese manufacturer and picked out the products you want to purchase, you should start arranging to place your order.

Usually, the Chinese supplier will prepare a proforma invoice for you, and after you confirm all the terms, you just need to pay for the goods and they will arrange the production for you.

Of course, if you are wholesaling party supplies online, then generally you are trading directly through a platform such as Alibaba. When you pay for the goods, you are actually paying Alibaba to know that you have received the goods and confirmed receipt before Alibaba will credit the supplier, making your purchase more secure.

However, there are still two tips you need to be aware of here.

TIPS 1: About payment.

If the transaction is done offline, you need to confirm the payment method with the Chinese supplier and deal with him through a method that best suits your needs. 

Common payment methods are:

#1. Full payment before order;

#2. 30% down payment, the balance before shipment;

#3. 30% deposit, 70% balance against BL copy.

You can choose the payment method that best suits your needs based on the amount of the order, and by negotiating with the supplier. Generally speaking, the third one, 30% deposit, 70% balance against BL copy is the most favorable payment method for the buyer.

TIPS 2: About Quality Control

Generally speaking, when we place an order, our biggest concern is the quality of the product, whether it can meet or even exceed our expectations. If you are looking for a party supplies wholesale supplier like Party Dream, they will show you the quality of the product by taking pictures and videos to show you whether it meets your requirements after the production is over, one by one.

If you are working directly with a wholesale supplier or manufacturer, it is best to first understand the quality of the product through pictures or videos. When the goods are produced, you can ask them to take pictures or videos for you to check the product quality.

At the same time, you can also find a Chinese sourcing agent to help you to do product quality inspection, they will issue a report to you, the general cost is 150 U.S. dollars a day.

How to ship party supplies from China

When you have finished producing all your products, all that remains is to transport the goods to your warehouse. You can choose between sea, air or land transport depending on the goods you order.

Of course, you can also choose whether to have it delivered directly to your warehouse or to have the customs clearance company clear it for you upon arrival at the port and get a trailer to transport it to your warehouse.

For starters, you can ask your supplier to ship directly to your warehouse for you, so you don’t have to waste time contacting freight companies and customs clearance companies to pick up your goods from the port.


Import party supplies from China, learn how to find party supplies suppliers online or offline, then learn about the list of party supplies made in China. When the order is confirmed, confirm the payment method and quality inspection, and finally ship to your warehouse.
