Now in terms of the packaging, we recommend getting it customized. This sets your product further apart from the competition. The sooner you can get this done, the better, because it will take a couple of weeks for them to produce it. So ask your supplier for the different packaging options that come with your product, select the one that you like the most, and then ask them for a template.
Now you’ve got a product in mind, it’s time to find a supplier. There are a few places you can go, such as alibaba.com, aliexpress.com, and globalsources.com.

Tick the gold supply box, this narrows down you’re results to what’s usually a better list.

Do you know Amazon was called “Cadabra” in the beginning? But when the lawyer of Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon misheard the name as “cadaver”, he changed the name to Amazon. Bezos instead named the site from the name of river reportedly for two reasons. One, to suggest scale (Amazon.com launched with the tagline “Earth’s biggest bookstore”) and two, back then website listings were often alphabetical. One more interesting thing about Amazon is, it’s logo began as an abstract river design. After making few changes in design, in 2000, the logo was re-designed as the Turner Duckworth design we see today. In current logo design, a smile begins under a and ends with z (in the name of Amazon) which means they offer anything from A to Z to their online customers. Here is one more interesting thing which you might not have heard and that is, founder of Amazon, Bezos is currently involved in a project to build a 10,000 Year Clock.

Amazon Business also offers a few payment options. A company-wide purchasing card can be added to the account to be accessed by multiple users, or you can open a corporate credit line, under which you can authorize multiple buyers on a single account, download order history reports and pay by purchase order.

Amazon also use cooperative advertising arrangements, better known as ‘contra-deals’ with some vendors and other third parties. For example, a print advertisement in 2005 for a particular product such as a wireless router with a free wireless laptop card promotion will feature a specific Amazon URL in the ad. In product fulfilment packs, Amazon may include a leaflet for a non-competing online company such as Figleaves.com (lingerie) or Expedia (travel).
