In order to start the production the supplier will need some kind of deposit. The norm is to pay 30% upfront and 70% when the production is finished. You can see this as a down-payment. The supplier will use the 30% to purchase all the raw materials he needs for your order and to make sure you won’t bail in the middle of the order.
If you are a little unsure about shipping a large amount of money overseas you can always use Alibaba Trade Assurance. Since we have selected this option in step 1 your supplier should have this option.
Once we are satisfied with the inspection report and the production is 100% finished we will pay the remaining balance.
Make sure that you have already started the first step in the shipping process once you finish this step, so your shipment can get processed as fast as possible.
Congratulations on completing the manufacturing step 🙌
See you in the next step:
