MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) – Why Chinese Manufacturers Require it?

If you are successful in quoting in China, you should receive a quotation sheet with MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) requirement or term from Chinese supplier, manufacturer or factory. MOQ or Minimum Order Quantity means that supplier is unwilling to sell product or parts to buyer if he or she places a purchase order but can’t reach the requirement of the lowest quantity of each product. MOQ is a rule from actual manufacturers due to they think they may be loss of money if they sell the products to you less than the certain quantity. No matter where you purchase products in China, import from manufacturing company directly, or hire a sourcing services company and sourcing agent to help you, there are still minimum order quantity requirement.
