In our impression, stock generally refers to the goods that merchants buy more and are temporarily stored in warehouses or products that merchants cannot sell. If they are unsold goods, it is the biggest problem. At the same time, stock shoes quality inspection is also forced to be in an awkward position. Some small and medium-sized importers often prefer to buy stock because they are often attracted by the prices, but only a few importers will consider the problems and risks of stock. How to control risk has become the biggest problem for importers. Usually, smart importers will choose stock shoes quality inspection to let third parties help them keep away from the difficulty of quality.
For the shoes in stock, it can be divided into whole stock and miscellaneous stock. The product of whole stock is usually because the client does not pick up the goods in time when placing an order. Such a product has a single style and a complete number of sizes. Miscellaneous stock generally refers to the products left over by the seasonal style due to consolidated list. It is not complete in size and has a wide range of styles. If the importer buys the whole stocking shoes, the process operation will be basically the same as that of non-stocking goods and accordingly the risk will be reduced.
The specific source of stocking shoes may be as follows:
Normal factories, whether accepting orders from foreign trade or domestic brands, they will naturally produce more or less stock, which is often reasonable. For example, if 10,000 pairs of sports shoes are produced, the factory can not prepare only 10,000 pairs of shoes because it can not guarantee that the factory will not produce defective products during production. If this batch of goods is sold out less and shoe materials are prepared more, the stock will be produced. There are also some suppliers specializing in developing the domestic market, which generally produce more products than expected after investigating the market in the early stage, then the shoes are in stock.Sometimes the styles of the products are not popular in the market, so the whole batch of the products will not be sold out.
Compared with the shoes sold in domestic market, the shoes exported to foreign countries have distinct advantages and disadvantages. First of all, the prices of shoes in stock are generally cheap. Because even if there is no problem with the product and they can pass the stock shoes quality inspection, but because the manufacturer lacks sales channels, it can only be sold lower at the cost price. As a result, the prices of the stock shoes that importers contact with are cheap.
The quality of the stock shoes is uneven. Some of the stock shoes have a long storage time and are out of fashion in style, so they can be bought for a few dollars and are suitable for low-cost consumers. After all, they will make consumers feel that the price-performance ratio is high. However, no matter how low the price of shoes is, it is necessary to arrange stock shoes quality inspection. Because the quality of shoes may be completely different from what was expected, importers need to carry out pre shipment inspection. From the inspection report, we can see the quality of the shoes in stock. In Pre Shipment Inspection can get specific information. During the inspection, special attention will be paid to the glue, stitches,decorations and cleanliness. Especially if they are placed in the warehouse for a long time, they will encounter some rainy days and humid air,then the shoes will have glue opening, broken stitches, falling ornaments and a lot of dust accumulation, even mold or deformation. These defects will be exposed when stock shoes quality inspection is conducted.
Good quality stock shoes are generally similar to those produced for new orders, so the price will also be high, but compared with the price of new orders, they are still much cheaper and are very cost-effective for importers. During the global economic crisis, especially for countries who used the euro, many importers found it was impossible to make profits from importing shoes into their countries because of the big fluctuation of the euro exchange rate, so they finally cancelled orders and even give up the deposits from factories.The quality of the shoes produced under such circumstances is very good. However, even with good quality, it does not mean you do not need to arrange stock shoes quality inspection ,because no one can guarantee that someone will play tricks on it.
Many importers in the middle and low-end market, after passing through stock shoes quality inspection, know that they have found low-price and good-quality stocking shoes.They have greatly reduced their original budget and their profit margins have soared, thus strengthening their determination to buy stocking shoes. Because of all kinds of risks, they already know all about it and the next transaction is almost perfect as long as they pay the final payment.
