How can you place an order?

It’s not that hard to order something from the Shantou Toy Market. The first thing you have to do is visit the showroom and pick the products you desire. The staff at the toy showroom will create a file based on the products you have already picked. The file contains detailed information about the product you have selected (product description,  packing, package size, carton size, GW/NW, etc.) and contact information for the factory representative. After getting the contact information, you can invite them to the toy showroom for a face-to-face talk about your order.

You want to have an interpreter with you, just to ensure that you can speak in English with the factory representative. Most of them don’t speak English, so having an interpreter can help you a lot. You can talk about customizing the product or packaging and a variety of other things. Making sure that you talk with the supplier is crucial before you initiate any order.

What types of toy suppliers are there on the Shantou Toy Market right now?

1. Factory

Normally, factories focus on the creation of toys within a certain category. Some factories are focused on creating may be an element of a certain toy and not the entire toy. Another thing to note is that many factories lack English skills, they don’t have their own sales department and they also don’t know how to trade internationally. That’s why they tend to work with trading companies so they can acquire orders.

2. Brand Manufacturers

Factories that have great developmental features and great capital have focused on creating their own toy brands. They are not focused on delivering custom orders anymore, which is something that you need to keep in mind. They also tend to have their own sales departments. As we mentioned above, they are not working with custom packaging, they stepped away from that. If you want branded packaging, that can be a problem.

3. Trading Companies

On the Shantou Toy Market you can find toy trading companies of various sizes. These complement the factories and they are talking in English, not to mention they are specialized in things like international trade. It’s also possible that sometimes they have lower prices when compared to the factories. They have great resources and tools designed to help you save money, so that can be one of the reasons why you want to work with them. They survive on the market because they can bring in amazing deals, so they can be a great pick.
