Want to Buy Reusable Bags at the Lowest Wholesale Price? Listen up!

Whether you’re looking for items to sell, to hand out at a tradeshow, or as corporate gifts there is a lot to know when purchasing reusable bags at wholesale pricing. Let us break everything down for you.

Let’s Clear Up Any Misunderstanding about Retail and Wholesale

Retail and wholesale sound simple enough and most people probably think they understand how these pricing systems differ, but let’s start at the beginning. Retail pricing incorporates the manufacturer’s expenses for material, labor, overhead (like rent, utilities and any other expenses needed to keep the business running) and lastly profit. A wholesale pricing structure factors in all of the same expenses, but the profit is a lower percentage.

What really sets the wholesale pricing structure apart is the quantity – wholesale orders usually feature a minimum and there are price breaks for larger quantities, so the more you order the lower the price per item. This works out for the manufacturer because while they are receiving a lower price for each item sold they are guaranteed higher quantities.

The low price per unit causes some people to think that is a reflection of the quality, and while that may very well be true in some instances, that is not the case for us here at Factory Direct Promos. We make sure to use durable and eco materials and we pride ourselves on the quality craftsmanship of our products. In fact, we were founded on it.

We work directly with our overseas production facility and this direct relationship saves us money and we pass this savings along to our customers, allowing you to secure a super low price for quality reusable bags.

When purchasing wholesale volume is the driving factor, and the higher the quantity you buy the lower the price per unit. To land on the ideal number you need to balance demand or need with financial constraints. Getting a really low price on 1,000 reusable shopping bags may not be that great if you only need 250 bags, but at the same time you don’t want to under-buy because several smaller purchases will end up costing you a lot more than one large purchase. Carefully consider the quantity you purchase to ensure you have plenty to fill your needs.

The Ins and Outs of Working with Us

When you decide to place an order with us you have a couple options. First, you can order from our in-stock selection, which features a lower minimum order point and a quicker turnaround. Ultimately, our in-stock offerings are better if you need your custom reusable bags right away. We can color match to your company colors and print the logo or slogan of your choosing directly on the bag to showcase your promotional message.

Your second option is ordering from our overseas production facility. You can customize away when you order from our overseas facility – tweak the design of an existing reusable bag or create something completely different. Adjust the length of the handles, make the gussets a different color, add pockets or zippers or whatever you dream up to make the bag fit your vision. When you order a highly customized bag from our overseas facility this requires a bit more time and we require higher minimums, but the price and time is well worth the finished product when you consider the level of customization.
