Just sent you some rep for the advice.I never promise anyone anything. They probably get promises like that from people all the time. Nobody ever asks how much I'm going to order anymore. I don't know if it's because these companies on alibaba are vetting me by typing in my websites or searching Amazon. Once they get my logo or insert card information I'm sure they google it. I know I would.
If anyone ever asks how many I would order, I just say I don't know. When they ask for the MOQ, I just tell them how many I want. I won't move my MOQ up if it doesn't make sense. Remember, this is a business so your orders have to make sense. If you can get 1000 for $5 and 2000 for $4, but you can only sell 1000, then what good is the extra 1000 pcs to you even at $1 off?
