When looking for a vendor, there are a lot of options available. Luckily, there are a few key attributes everyone should look for when hiring a supplier. Consider these three qualities when looking for the right vendor.

  1. Production capabilities – You want vendor who always sends products that are up to your standards.

  2. Accountability – Look for a supplier that can admit when they made a mistake and is able to fix it in a timely manner. You also want someone who is reachable and gets your supplies to you when they said they would.
  3. Communication skills – Hire a supplier that is open and direct. You need to be able to communicate  what’s going on with your own customers, and  your communication with your supplier affects that.
