Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) is the smallest quantity of a product that a business agrees to produce or sell. This quantity is usually set to help reduce the risk of producing or stocking items that may not be sold, and it can also help to keep costs low.
When it comes to ordering products for your business, it’s important to be aware of MOQs and how they can impact your bottom line. By knowing what the minimum order quantity is for a product before you make your purchase, you’ll be able to better plan your inventory levels and avoid any unnecessary expenses.
This is usually a measure taken by suppliers to protect themselves from small or low-volume orders, as processing and shipping these orders can be expensive and time-consuming for them.
Some may require no MOQ at all, while others may ask for a higher MOQ (e.g., 500 units). It’s important to note that not all suppliers enforce MOQs, so it’s always worth contacting them to ask about their policies before committing to an order.
A manufacturer may set a MOQ in order to ensure that it does not produce or sell too few products and incur the costs of setting up production or stocking inventory, only to have to discontinue the product line later. Similarly, a retailer may set a MOQ in order to ensure that it does not carry too little stock, which could lead to lost sales if the customer cannot find what they are looking for.
